31  Can ya stand another couple pet portraits? in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by schizo319 on: November 06, 2007 07:34:54 PM
16x20 acrylic of a coworkers dogs. Not crazy about how this turned out. I had to mesh 3 different photos into one and the lighting is "off", but she's happy, so I'm happy!

Another 16x20 acrylic of a friends corgi. He's one of my favorites

32  Alien xbox faceplate... in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by schizo319 on: November 06, 2007 07:18:59 PM
I was checking out xbox faceplates and ran across this: http://gaming.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=4949
I wanted to buy it for my husband for our anniversary, but it's still in the "prototype" stage, so I decided to make one. Mine isn't nearly as cool as the original, but I like it nonetheless, and my husband is thrilled!

Note: I idiotically (is that a word?) built this on the faceplate and then baked it - yeah - plastic faceplates melt! duh! Anyway, I tried to use an air dry but I don't like the consistency, so I carefully peeled the alien off of the melted faceplate and glued it on a new one. It worked ok, but there's still a crack on the "neck" (right under the hole) that you can see in the detailed shot.

I'd like to do some more of these, maybe a dragon or optimus prime, but I can't figure out how to do it easily. I thought of trying to make a model of the faceplate to bake on, but out of what?!?! Any suggestions?

Thanks for looking!

33  Seven new Acrylic dog paintings... (pic heavy) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by schizo319 on: September 30, 2007 10:44:46 AM
Most recent painting - this little yorkie belonged to a friend of ours, his 90th birthday is next week and his beloved "Prissy" passed away about 6 months ago, so I painted her portrait for his birthday. 12x12 canvas board.

Painted this rat terrier for my best friends mom. 9x12 canvas board. Anyone know where to pick up a cheap 9x12 frame?

This was taken from a photo of my mom hugging her chocolate lab, I call it "puppy love" (and now that old song is running through my head Smiley) It's 12x12 canvas board, and the first "human face" I've ever painted.

These are both commissioned work for a coworker. They're 12x12  canvas board and I put them in shadowbox frames. She is ecstatic about them!

This is a piece commissioned by a friend's coworker. 11x14 on gallery wrapped canvas.

This is my mom's dog Harpo. He's my favorite so far! 14x18 canvas board.

Thanks for taking a peek!

35  A couple of new dog faces - pop art style... in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by schizo319 on: September 02, 2007 09:35:35 PM
This is a painting of my dog, Tootsie. My husband took a terrific photo of her lying in the grass that I was just dying to paint - it's HUGE 24x36, acrylic on canvas.

This one is my friend's dog Elly - it's quite a bit smaller (12x16).

36  Second Pet Portrait... (english bulldog) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by schizo319 on: August 31, 2007 11:42:01 PM
This is the dog of a coworker of mine - I met him a couple weeks ago and fell in love with his little wrinkled face!

37  First pet portrait in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by schizo319 on: August 27, 2007 08:08:21 PM
This is my mom's chocolate lab, Coco. I've never painted an animal before, I had a ton of fun doing it. You can see the photo I worked from to the right of the painting.

Any feedback is welcome, I think the colors are a little bright in comparison to the photo...

38  A couple paintings (1 acrylic + 1 watercolor) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by schizo319 on: February 11, 2007 09:04:04 AM
This one recently pulled $200 at a local charity auction - first piece I've ever sold, so I'm very excited. I miss her though, she looked great in my livingroom!

Zinnia I - acrylic on canvas, 18" x 24"

This is my first "real" watercolor - up until yesterday, I've only played around with them and hated most everything I've done. It's painted from a photo (at the right) that I took while on vacation in Germany. It's the "Festung Marineberg" in Wurzburg from the window of its museum. Wurzburg is the town I was born in and my mom's home town, so this will be a gift for her whenever I can manage to get it framed.

Window to history - Watercolor on canvas paper, 9" x 12"
