Day 12 January 12, 2008
Flying Skunk


not available

Another skunk, I want to get comfortable drawing them so I can do more expressive skunks in different poses.  Also I'm taking so much medication and still feel like poop (strep throat and sinus infection), yet with that slight pain medication overtone... therefore the skunk is not grounded at all. ;p  and he's not contagious like me hehe.

I have been thinking about what I am going to do with these!!

I think...

Some will be gifted.

Some will be traded.

Some will end up somewhere else.

Smiley

In the next few days I hope to sort that out and get it sorted which I want to trade etc etc.  I know someone has already claimed the frog prince and I've got it reserved for her hehe.  *note* do more frogs!

From thursday to Tuesday starting next week I'll be travelling to the bayou for a wedding.  My chances of posting while there are small but I will be drawing! (if time permits I might be able to post)  I'll put them all up when I get back if I don't while I'm out.

I just wanted to let you guys know how much your support has means to me.  The fact that I know I'm not secretly doing this and that you guys are here has pushed me on the few days its been hard and your encouragement and compliments really make a girls day!  I've got a year and I am pretty sure some of these will be made with intent for you guys especially.  You inspire me!

A story... So now all I can think about is a story!  A lonely skunk who wishes upon a moon in a magic forest... the magical moonbird (what? you really thought there was a MAN in the moon?) that flies down to help him and... o.O I don't know!  I wanted to do a childrens book but I'm not a writer at all.. at all.  My thoughts were maybe for one that used little in the way of writing but told the story in pictures. (Ever read the book Tuesday? its awesome and just pictures for the most part)

Another watercolor on paper, this time the bristol smooth stuff.

yes, the textured paper and I have not found middle ground yet, we'll keep working on it.  I do like the smooth though!  I don't know why but yeah the watercolor paper seems to get all mucky and doesn't seem to like getting wet, which makes no sense at all.

I have to post and run, under the weather, doctor appt in the morn! 

My husband made a zombie bunny request today... so that will be soon hehe.

Day 8 January 08, 2008


Tree Impression. Watercolor on Watercolor paper.

I do not like watercolor paper.  Every once in a while I pull it out and try something on it and it... just seems like watercolor is the last thing one would want to do on it... argh!

DragonRhapsody I draw a lot of trees... trees and hands, lots but am having a heck of a time getting it to translate into something this small, but will keep trying! Smiley

27  From up there it blows in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by moonshinebluebird on: January 07, 2008 02:45:47 PM
From up there
Watercolor on strathmore Bristol Smooth
Size of paper is 4 x 3 but size of art is almost 3 x 2.75

I had all these cards (below) to put polaroids in so I decided to make art somewhat that size, or at least to fit in there.  I like having a bunch of blanks ready to draw/paint on when it strikes me!



inside the polaroid card hold thing


And against a colored background to see the full size


ok that was 3 images of the same thing heh sorry I wanted to show the card thing etc, next ones I'll just show the image Smiley with a border so you can see the size.

 Cheesy hehe Teeisme!

Thank you guys again Smiley I would love to illustrate a children's book someday.  Though I feel that I have a ways to go with learning. (Not like we ever stop learning anyway!)

Watercolor and I are still in contract negotiations hehe.  Today is ink, but I'm mostlikely going to be doing a lot of watercolor, the more I do the more I learn.

Moonshine Bluebird in watercolor, ink and prismacolor.



Thank you all so much for your kind replies!! If any of you are doing the daily thing and post any of it I'd love to see it so much. 

I've been so busy tiling a bathroom that I wasn't sure I'd have time! But I made it.  Some days the creativity comes easy and others it flows like molasses on a cold day. (today)
