I think this would actually be more effective if it was bigger, not sure how I would do that yet tho....*puts thinking cap on*

3 dragons hidden in this print, that was really just printed as an after thought to get the paint off the plate and not waste it.

This one is very fuzzy, and that makes it look like it has a bit of a mohawk going on in the line art :p

I figured I might as well relate the Jabberwocky to what I like drawing, just include the few details given in the poem about the Jabberwocky to try to tie the creature more to the poem.

This is what I made last block:
I might not like everything we do on the course, but I do find it is helping me see ideas in random things more, and I am learning about artists I never heard of before, so that can only be a good thing.
Now I'm curious if anyone can figure out what this door is referring to? Will be very impressed if someone does guess :)

Its an old drawing, but one I have always liked and it is what started me drawing holiday dragons. Hopefully I get some time this week to draw an updated version, change some thing I never liked.
I haven't been able to get a scan of it before, so the new scanner is really its self useful :)

So for this course we have to do a graded unit. We were given 5 themes and from them we have to think of ideas for a final piece. After making a bunch of mind maps,(really not my favourite thing to do), I ended up with using Alice in Wonderland as an idea, which then led to doing something based on the Jabberwocky poem.
I need to design the creatures in the poem, a Jubjub bird, badger and the Jabberwocky and this is one sketchy idea for the bird. I also drew designs for the body of the bird, which is sort of pointless since it will be sitting in a tree and you will not see it.
Haven't decided yet if I want the Jabberwocky to be reptile based, or mix a bunch of animals together. Since most of the creatures used in the poem are not described, you could have them look like anything you wanted.
Its not due for another 12 weeks, but its a lot of work to get done if you want to get an A, and a lot of art Unis will not even think of looking at your portfolio without that A :/ But I do like designing creatures and characters, and because I am doing print making for the final piece, the graded unit is really becoming my favourite of the units we have done so far.

And I have been asked many times how big A3 paper is, its 16.5 x 11.7 Inches. Here is a list of A series paper sizes, used in most of the world, except North America and Mexico.
Have to clear the desk now...hmmm that might take awhile :p
