1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Portraits of Johnny Depp, Joe Strummer, Thom Yorke, and my brother. on: August 05, 2006 11:08:52 PM
All of these drawings I did in my 10th grade Art II class. The pictures were taken by my art teacher so I can't guarantee they're of the best quality.

The pictures go from the very first one I did (Johnny Depp) to the last (Joe Strummer). You can obviously tell I became more comfortable with the medium as I went along (I'm more used to computer-oriented art).

Sadly, my art teacher lost my portrait of Thom Yorke at the end of the year.  Undecided


Johnny Depp, from a picture I found in a magazine. In real life it's pretty big, around 14 x 11.


A portrait of my older brother, Jon. The lips look strange because in the picture I based it off of he had the weirdest look on his face. Like he ate something sour.  Cheesy Before doing this, I never realized what a meaty neck he has.


My favorite and the one my teacher lost.  Embarrassed Thom Yorke from Radiohead. Shading all of the dark spots was a bitch.


Joe Strummer. This is the last one I did, I finished it sometime around October. I don't like the shading on his left cheek, I'll try to fix it later. My pencils are different than the ones I used in class and you can tell if I make a mark with a different pencil.

I have another I did in my spare time of Trent Reznor but I can't seem to find it. I also have a half-finished one of John Lennon but I don't think I'll continue working on it because it isn't all that good.
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Phantom doll on: May 29, 2005 05:37:58 PM
Since school has ended for the year, I've decided to start doing all the crafty things I had been planning to do since last October. First on the list...a Phantom/Erik doll from Phantom of the OperaGrin

The doll body/head/hair/mask is made from felt. His vest is made of a grey silk-like fabric and his cape is from an old black t-shirt where I cut off the sleeves and ran a ribbon through the open hem tunnel. Sorry if the pictures are too dark, my digital camera sucks big time.

Him without his mask. Note the lack of deformity. I'm not exactly sure how to make him deformed without just scribbling on his face with a red marker.  Undecided Yes, I know he's smiling and that the Phantom is usually very brood-y but I thought he was cute with a wee smile on his face. *pinches his cheeks*

Erik with his mask! (Ack. I should really paint my nails again.) I used those little sticky velcro circles to keep his mask on. The mask is my favourite part since I used white felt with little bits of glitter in it. Completely worth the extra 7 cents, I might add!  Cheesy

UPDATE: I bought a little silk red rose from Walmart and attached it to his hand! Now it looks like he's handing me a wee rose Cheesy I'd add pics but my camera died yesterday. *sniffle*
