i like the breakfast one too, especially the color/lighting. would the cathedral happen to be in Vienna?
People seem to like the breakfast one, all of my friends and I love that one too, good memories are tied to it. It's weird, I have a bunch of photots from teh same place, and for whatever reason only two happened to come out in those colours.
That's a very gorgeous picture. I'm sorry that the frame broke. What's drawing from a grid?
You take a picture and block it off in squares (in say 1 cm squares, or 1/2 inch i suppose if you're american...) and then you lightly mark what your drawing on into the same amount of bigger squares and draw it square by square, so you end up with an exact but enlarged copy of the original picture. It helps with perspective and stuff and gets you out of the side of your head that sees everything in symbols (like what a guitar should look like compared to what you actually see before you) because you're only drawing what's inside each block, one block at a time, instead of the whole picture all at once.
So I was going through some photos and realized I had a picture of a drawing I did a couple of years ago. It was my final project for my grade 10 art class, done as a grid drawing off of an 8x10 picture i printed off of the computer.
Unfortunately after this photo was taken, I had it framed and hanging up on my wall where it fell one day. The frame smashed and the glass scratched the drawing all up and I've never gotten around to fixing it, nor do I know if I'll even be able to.
I have the weirdest inkling that you go to my school for some reason. Aside from the fact that an untraditional self portrait is the classic grade 11 independent project at my school, your screenname is ridiculously familiar, possibly from a local music message board or something... maybe it's just coincidence
That being said, go with whatever you like and don't be held up by not knowing if you're good using a particular medium or not, the glory of an untraditional self portrait is that there are no rules as long as you feel that it's you.
So I have this idea for a skirt, but I have no idea how to go about making it.
I want a skirt like this:
With a more gathered part off to the side.
I was thinking of just making it like a circle skirt, but make the circumference of the circle I cut out of the fabric bigger than my waistband, and then just gather the extra fabric to one area when i sew the waist band on. And maybe setting the waist off center and gathering the longer part(...gah, i have no idea if this makes sense to anyone else...) I, of course, have no idea if this would actually work, and would rather not waste fabric.
So, any ideas and how I could make something similar, or know of a pattern/tutorial like this that I may have over looked in my search for one?
I love how it's so recognizable as Dylan! Usually when people do a mosaic of a person it's all "er...is that? ...maybe?...could it be?...yeah, who is it...?", but the colours and shades are so fantastic!
Can I enter a purse I made prior to this if it fits the rules? Or at least show off my super nifty thriftiness...
I made this clutch for a total of $0! a big zero!
All it took was some scavenging around my house. It's made from an old blazer of my dads, circa 1980 at least, an old red t-shirt i stole from my brother(it was ful of holes anyway) , and some left over red ribbon that originally came from a free gift basket. The button (and button hole!) are from the blazer. There's also a strap that I have tucked into the clutch in the pictures, that's made from the collar of the blazer, so it's nice and stiff and has a soft felt on the underside that was already there.
It's cheap and cute and I'm so sad I gave it away.
