I just was going through this drawer that I keep my drawing crap in, looking for a pencil that fell out of my drawing box, and found a CRAP TON of unfinished pictures. Lots that need inking, some that need cleaning up, and others that need details. There are even pictures of people in there, from before I gave up drawing people. Also, a sweet/creepy robot dragon (I have no recollection of drawing either), a sea life diagram, Sheelah in a library, and lots of others.
I'll be working on these for a while, which works out because hubby's working overtime and that means I have until 3am to do whatever. I was gonna clean that drawer, maybe I'll find more things. >.>
Should I do an awesomepants seasonal drawing involving Sheelah? Should I make some sort of super duper plushie? SHOULD I NOT DO ANYTHING????????
I'm bored and gonna be working on this during family get-togethers, so I would rather not work on a commission (I have two pending but they won't be started until after my dental surgery in January) So I figured maybe you all might have a suggestion for me? If I have the materials handy, I'll probably do it. :P
Also, I might try making a 3D Sheelah plush or something this year, as a super portfolio piece. I'm gonna need some help finding black fur with either charcoal gray or navy blue tips, that's over an inch long. Or just black, or even shiny black. I really want to give her fur a luxurious look, because in my head she's like this skinny bony thing that has really nice fur. :P
I'm also not 100% on her skin being white, light grey, or some other really pale color. Her eyes are staying solid blue, and I'm not messing with her body shape at all other than maybe a tiny horn tweak to make it more consistent to draw. :P Other than that, I'll have to find some fat claws and horns for her, I'll probably do LED eyes if I can afford it.
And I am quite happy with my recent artwork, at least what I've posted. I'm just gonna do my best to forget the balled up failures that I tossed in the garbage.
I've been having quite vivid dreams the past few months, and the ones I remember all seem to have either dragons, or just really interesting animals in them. It seems if I have a dream with just people, it's either a school type dream (Am I the only one having dreams like I'm still going to school, getting on the bus and all that?) or it's some horrible nightmare, or even both.
The Liwoolke was a dream that I just had to draw, I was explaining it to hubby and he was like "I don't get it, just draw one for me." The wyvern's story was part of a daydream, when I first drew the wyvern and shaded it, it looked so much like it was aged and grey that I daydreamed this whole story involving it's journey to the graveyard of the dragons. Most of my stories like that are sad though. That's part of why I had stopped drawing, I have all these stories that I want to get drawn and written out, but they just seem too sad to share with others. :/ That and the issue of my wrists both failing me last year, but I've gotten them much stronger now and I don't need to wear braces all day anymore. I mostly draw without the braces on, and I can do some detail sewing with them off, I mostly just need the one on my right wrist for sewing now. :) LOTS of improvement over this time last year, when I could barely type. I had to give up crocheting, but I would rather have my wrists I guess. I'll be working more on art after all my stuff for the holidays, and stuff in January
Speaking of stuff, I have a dental filling on the 22nd of this month, so I get to have nice sensitive teeth for Christmas...a consultation January 3rd (or is it the 5th?), my wisdom tooth surgery after that, and then LOTS of bills to pay off. What a wonderful way to enter 2012! Although I get to cook my turkey the weekend of New Year's, so that will be cool. :) NURKEHBURD!
All right, the chamomile tea and meds are starting to hit, and I'm gonna get ready for bed now. Night everyone!
On November 1, I will be 21. :D This is exciting to me. I doubt I'll actually drink, because I'm poor and also my stomach already hates me, but hey, that means I get to have wine on my anniversary.
I think I might actually try to submit more things! :O
Craziness, I know, but I will try!
Here's a blurry as all heck picture of a majestic cougar I drew in high school, and finished the penwork earlier this year. It's funny, my husband and I had the same animal to draw, so we had to work together, and he was dating this other girl at the time. She hated it because we were having fun, or something. I don't know.
I live in a different house. There's rooms here, and there's doors on most of the rooms. There's also kitties somewhere, but they like to hide.
I'm not dead, just busy. Very busy. My hubby (Themooman) and I might be moving soon. Hopefully.
I'm back to drawing and making plushies/ soft sculptures.
Tomorrow I have an eye exam, my first in three years. I hope I get pretty glasses. :P
So...yeah. That's what I've been up to. It's all good here I guess.
