I don't know how many times I've poked myself with the needle felting tool with these. And they're tiny, really. The, uh, sheep and teddy bear, not the needle felting tools. But they're small, too.
Background noise? Oh, that's a coloured pencil piece I started at the beginning of November thinking I'd finish it easily. Whoops. Reindeer :x
For some odd reason I keep relating my illustration project to theevilstellie and her son Xander :P
Crappy photo of my fingers and the needle felted sheepie....
I've started knitting up that orange and brown yarn. Definitely harsh on one's fingers, that's for sure. It'll turn out an awesome grocery napsack, though. The ball of light orange is that bit Chris had spun and I traded out some of my thin yarn for.... And that's my orange book bag on the floor. Yes, I have a love for the colour orange, bite me :P
Old scrap that I don't think I ever posted.... Another old scrap that resides in the large sketchbook. I've dedicated that one to centaurs only... I think I posted one of them a while back ago, but she's over a year old, now.
Yay, all done. Time for more work.
So there's the book cover. Watercolours and gouache over pen and ink on watercolour paper. The scanner isn't acting properly so I took what ended up being a rather blurry picture of it. Who cares, anyway, right? I'll end up finding a properly working scanner soon and I'll impose the title and so forth digitally.
And there's the HUNTERS SUCK yarn. 102 yards, two-ply, not for sale. In response to fiber_friday's prompt 'Leftovers' for December 2nd. Kool-Aid dyed scottish black face wool plyed with a natural brown English Leicester, Salish, and Merino cross wool. Harsh and soft all rolled into one.
That's all for now. Time to go work on my sculpture final. And possibly dinner.
( The other two - handshears and shepherd's crook )
Sheep beads -- two-holed. Roughly the size of a nickel, each. Handshears -- the length and width of two sheep beads by one sheep bead. Shepherd's crook (with bow) ...kinda big, really. Lenth of my hand, almost. There's a snail, too, but I'm not going to push my luck scanning him in at the moment. Lavender, violet and skin-tone Sculpey. Playing around with things right now and this is what I get.
Also, here's Recycled Candystriper for everyone's enjoyment :P
