New Paperlife Topic [25 Oct 2003|07:43pm]

[ mood | awake ]

Alright, Jordan said I can do this,so here goes.
The new paperlife topic is as follows:

Pick an element (such as earth, wind, water, etc) and create a fitting character to embody this element. You may want to keep in mind such things as whether the embodiment is good or evil, helpful or destructive, vicious or kind, etc etc.

Remember, please put your pictures behind LJ-Cuts to minimize messiness.

Happy drawing!

[ mood | cheerful ]

I figured now that I've been a part of this community for a bit now, I should probably participate in a theme! Whee!

I decided to skew The Tortoise and the Hare. Please forgive the quality, I just drew it out real quick and took a photo.

Broken Fairy Tale [31 Jul 2003|04:20pm]

Here is my contribution to the Fairy Tale Gone Wrong...

"Someday My Prints Will Come!"
9"x12" watercolor

The modern Snow White is extremely artistic. She paints images of her dream man! She is also so free spirited that she paints in the nude! Still just like many artists lacking funds, she aspires for opportunities to generate more income through lithographs or giclees as she sings to herself the familiar melody, but with new lyrics, "Someday my prints will come..."

NEW TOPIC [21 Jul 2003|07:33pm]

This weeks is a doozey, lots of room to move around, lots of fun to be had!

Fairy Tales gone wrong!

Turn a classic tale on its ear, rip a cherished character to shreds, and reconstitute it into something altogether... different.

Oh, and for the last topic:

Meet Nigel Q. Armstrong...Collapse )
