Beware the Puns!

Done for no real reason -- re_image post. I'm so amused X3

Also, I fail at Force Lightning :\

Bigger image and close-up shots of the Unicorn and the Bull )

FINALLY finished with this. Will be for sale, but not by private treaty -- public auction as soon as I figure out if I want it up at Furbid or eBay. Suggestions? (I can't find my ruler to measure and I can't remember the dimensions... mebbe I typed those up elsewhere...)

Strathmore illustration board, Prang watercolours and watered down acrylic paint -- signed and dated in black acrylic ink along the border. A great deal of time off and on between the end of the spring semester and about 45 minutes ago.

I'd scan it, but my scanner isn't big enough -- not even for piecing; it eats the colour up.

My lace-weight yarn is driving me insane... because it is lace-weight. Ish. That's two-ply in grease (unwashed, raw wool) yarn knitted with American size 7 knitting needles. Ten stitches across. One inch. By, uh... about seven inches, I guess (I'm too lazy to go about finding one of my rulers... they're in one of my boxes. Somewhere)... random stitches. And stockinette! Because I just learned how with straight needles. After having knitted for ten years.

And because I am boldly moving into the textiles, I'm reading up on business stuff. No touchy, it's mine. Love my books.



Cross-posted to [livejournal.com profile] spinningfiber. Because I can.

EDIT:

I've gotten a few pictures together of what little progress I've made on the watercolour... eh. I hope I am motivated soon to get it finished because I really do like it.

Cut because there are too many pictures floating about as it is =P )

Lint thinks homemade yarn is interesting... he also thinks lanolin-covered fingers are tasty.

And for those of you wondering... I did finish that Doctor Who cutouts thing for 2-D design concepts. I haven't bothered to scan it because... uh... it's a pain in the ass trying to use the other computer. It's sooooo sloooooow.



Remember kiddies -- each square is 2"x2" (total of 10"x10" worked space) of 1-ply black cardstock. Cut carefully. And pasted onto white illustration board.

Take a peek inside my sketchbook?

I hate the fact that I can't, for the life of me, figure out how to get the camera to love me. It won't lemme take the dates off =\

Coming along.

Progress!

Watercolours, this time. Coming along pretty decently and I'm having a blast with my corner, there :D (...yeah, just forget about my corner, it's suggestive colour/form)

Shi painter, oekakicentral.com/farm -- neopets fanart. Roughly 300 minutes. Mouse drawn. Don't you just love it? XD Shamendrick the Mutant Blumaroo with her Fangy, Almalthea, and a naughty little Moach :) (Yes, these are mine -- I'm under the name aldebaraan there :D )

No winning spot for my column, so it goes home with me soon enough.

Watching Bravo's 100 Scariest movies of all time. Two of the movies I don't understand why they're there... Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory... and The Wizard of Oz. Those... aren't scary oO;

1. sketchbook drivel; last unicorn and the red bull -- will be personal project for the upcoming break (watercolours on illustration board) -- some sort of inking pen over non-photo blue pencil; prismacolor pencil overlay

2. concept: 50/50 -- turned out great! craft: 50/50 -- nice and clean (1/2 late x2 -10) 90/100 B; 2-D Design Concepts homework. Create a piece of work using three 'textures', any way you like. Base it upon the animal you choose from the bowl (got horse). Materials: Page 924 (Photo-Photographers) from the Richmond-Metro 2005 yellow pages; yellow and orange highlighters, black micron inkpen, white gel pen, Paris-France from 1972 National Geographic and the hair of a girl studying in said city from said National Geographic.

As far as the piece I was working on last night/this morning, it has been turned in. We shall never speak of it again.

Working, still! Finally have it out of the sketchbook and onto illustration board (omg that stuff's expensive :x ) and this is where it is, currently. Paper is 22"x10", just so you know. Oh, and acrylic paint. Oy. At least I can say they're better than gouache!

*fixes image so it doesn't stretch [livejournal.com profile] drazzi's friends page*

Finished product )

Utter failure. Stayed up all night for this and, bah. I should have slept -- I could have chunked this together in the afternoon before class. Oh well, live and learn. And remember to get a better shade of yellow in your paints. Canary yellow is right bit nasty for primary mixing -- red in there never makes a proper orange. You get a sort of horrible salmon colour, instead.

Biology exam at 8am, so there's no use sleeping now.

Original designings.

What I'm currently working on. (Sketchbook fodder.)
--Catching up-to-date--
Scrappies:


1. line work for 2-D design; 2. my first attempt at using Adobe Illustrator CS (if anyone has tutorials, please direct me to them!); 3. column piece, 2-D planning; 4. column piece, 3-D planning; 5. alternate 3-D column plans

Not so very scrappies:


Since I've last updated this, I've done the following:
* been accepted into VCU's sculpture department for Fall 2005
* 2- and 3-D column pieces have moved onwards to the final judging round. Will know outcome May 4th.
