Wow!
You m'lady, are very skilled.
Its beautiful!

Does the fabric have a pinkish iridescence to it? Some of the photos look as if it might, but lighting can do some odd things.
102  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Steampunk-themed Hand-made sketchbook! on: February 22, 2013 08:45:58 PM
My first hand-made sketchbook!
Pretty small, about 6"x8" and about 3/4" thick. Black leather on the front brushed with copper paint for the gears, and then cut-out feathers detailed with more leather paint. Also a nifty little bookmark made with a real peacock feather and a gear!

This book is actually for a project that I am starting. I will be painting on the first page then mailing to book to another artist, they paint then they mail, so on and so forth. I have about 50 people signed up so almost all the pages will be filled!

This is awesome! I made my first hand-bound book this week!
I absolutely love your idea of having different types of paper, I'm an artist and I totally understand the getting bored thing. This book will allow you to fill out all your ideas!

thats gorgeous! what kind of brush did you use for the fur? its very realistic  Cheesy

Thanks! A very small brush.  Cheesy
I'm not entirely sure which specific size it is, but its a simple small round. Paint covers most of the writing now

Thank you everyone!
It was a satisfying painting to finish for a couple reasons. One, I actually made the deadline. Two, I knew how happy it would make someone. That has to be the best feeling as an artist. Smiley

Around December I was absolutely SWAMPED with life. University finals, commissions, fighting off the usual cold 'n flus flying around, and I was to leave for a 2.5 week vacay in Hawaii over Christmas. I was finding everything very hard to manage.
And then a friend approached me, asking if there was any way that I would be able to do a custom painting for him, as the perfect Christmas gift to his mother. I was hesitant at first, but I asked him to explain what he would like. With a slight pleading look in his eye, he explained the story of his late younger brother, and the significance of the elements he would like (such as the words "Andrew", and "I Hope You Dance", as well as the way the dragonfly is hovering above a pond). It was absolutely beautiful, and it touched me. So I told him, yes, I will do everything in my power to get this done for you before Christmas. So I buckled down, went to town and WORKED LIKE A MADWOMAN.

Sleep? What is such a thing?  Cheesy

Although it doesn't tend to show, my favorite subjects to paint are animals with a fantasy or surreal spin to them.
Meet Mr. Jackalope, with non-traditional kudu horns instead of the usual pronghorn-style horns.

I painted this as a gift for a friend that made me the most INCREDIBLE hand-made sketch book. The thing feels like there is magic inside, like the contents are recipes for spells and magic potions. Tehee.

Yet another feather painting! This one was actually done to display in an art gallery, but it is now back safely in my home.

Painted on two peacock wing feathers that have been glued together, and painted on with acrylic paints.

I just adore dogs, I find that they enrich life. In fact, all pets enrich life. Smiley

These are a couple I painted for people, customs.
All were painted with acrylics, on white bristol.
