41  Two Attempts at Carl. Two Fails. in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by gozer on: August 04, 2017 07:58:31 AM

 Have you ever had that moment when you are drawing or crafting along and then all of a sudden think all your talent is gone? It's like when you are following a pattern and then all of a sudden you have NO idea what they just did (I sew a lot and this happens to me all the time). Well, Carl did that to me with ATCs. I decided to render him in Copic Markers like I normally do and for some reason everything was going wrong with it.
 I decided to put that aside and work it out in pencil. Still it was wrong but in another way.  Tongue  In the end I sent both cards and let it up to the person I claimed to decide which to keep. The left is the Copic, right is pencil. The top picture is before I cut them down to ATC size.


 I will attempt him again when I think I can handle the disappointment.  Tongue

42  July ATCs for the Swap + a remake in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by gozer on: August 04, 2017 07:41:00 AM

These are the cards I did for the July Swap. I did more cards in June but looking back, I wasn't very pleased with them so I decided to claim less and work harder.  Wink
 Here is what my efforts came up with.
 My first attempt was this guy. He is inspired by Ronan from the Raven Boys but I know Ronan has less hair. I wasn't exactly sure how to do that. I am not very good at drawing guys so I decided to work on that more.


 Then I did Luke Skywalker from Star Wars. I know everyone's favorite was/is Han but as a kid I was all about Luke. This was my first time adding color pencil on top of the Copic Markers to add detail and I really enjoyed the effects. I went back and added it to the card above with less than stellar results. I am still learning.  Embarrassed

 I was house sitting for my parents while I was working on this and got some help from her kitten Ernie.  Kiss


 Next up is my little lady Yeti Pegleg. She has an injured eye from her kittenhood before I adopted her. She is also missing a back foot. She is quite the scrapper though and nothing slows this pirate down!


 I decided to go for something even more challenging and tried to attempt water. I had a bit of a time figuring out how to do the sand and not have it blend in with the flesh and then it hit me, stipple it! I really liked the outcome. Then I put a layer of pale, pale blue over everything that would be underwater and added the white gel pen. I was pleased with the feel of this card.


 Lastly, one was lost in the mail. I whipped up this replacement and think it's better than the first. The theme was girl with Antlers. Actually, the first one is the lost card and the second one is the remake just for comparisons. The second one looks like Tyra Banks to me. LOL!

Prompt:  August - 3 - Sea Serpents Scales
Team: Maker
Bonus Points: Swaptastic
Project Name: Antler Girl
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452891.0
Brief Description: The first antler girl card I made went missing so I had to remake it and I remade it into this. I like this one better. She looks like Tyra Banks to me. Her eyes have Spica ink on them so they shimmer and for her necklaces I used metallic pens. The second pic is fuzzy and the color is wonky but it shows the shimmer better.

Prompt:  Red Alert & Hero/Story Bonus Points
Team: Maker
Bonus Points: Swaptastic, Brain power, Community
Project Name: Luke!
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452891.0
Brief Description:  Luke is the hero of the original Star Wars trilogy. I know Han is much more popular, but as a child I was a complete Luke fan. Still am. I made this ATC for the July ATC swap. I decided to take a little extra time and work some Prismacolored Pencils on top of my Copics and I think it made a world of difference. I was really happy with the results. I know I have a lot more practice ahead of me but I enjoyed making this card.
 For the Hero/Story Bonus, my parents went away to a reunion but couldn't leave their animals alone. I am their baby sitter. I actually made this card while doing just that. That is my mom's baby Ernie helping me. They have a funeral to attend this week so I will be going back over there. I have a LOT going on at my house so this is really a big deal for me to stop and help them. I don't mind, I know they would do it for me.  Kiss

 This month is really producing some fantastic cards! I'm really impressed with everyone.

 I got these cards the other day but didn't get a chance to post them until now.

 First up is our wonderful organizer Rockingbearranch. She sent me a comical rendering of a Yeti Pegleg. He looks as if he is having a nice vacation. She also sent along some pilgrim images and pointed out that they have the same stance. LOL!


 It's no secret that Bunny1kenobi and I are besties. Unfortunately we live nowhere near each other. To make up for this at times we Netflix movies at the same time and text funny comments to each other during them. We usually pick B movies since they are easy to joke on but we couldn't resist it when Dr Strange became available. I think she did an amazing job on this card and it means so much more to me because it reminds me of our silly "hang outs".


 I literally laughed out loud when I saw this card. Too funny! I love it. Bunny1 you made my day!  Grin  It's the fairy tale of the Emperor's New Clothes.  Wink

 Oh my gosh. I somehow didn't post this beautiful card from Pioneer9! I got it over the 4th of July and put it in my pile to file into my ATC folder and completely forgot to post it up for everyone else to see! I love her! She is such a beauty. So sorry for the delay in posting Pioneer9!!!

Project Name: Front Porch Redo
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: When I bought my house I didnt know much about the upkeep of the porch and deck. It was in desperate need of a resealing when I got it. I didnt take pics of the before but I thought about it halfway thru so you can still tell. It was really dark and gross and needed to be cleaned. I cleaned it twice with the porch cleaner and it was still gross. I ended up power washing it and then re-bleaching it.  You can see the color it was after all the cleanings on the floor part. I started sealing the rails before I thought to take a picture but you can tell which is done. And then there is the after. This is definitely a boring prompt but very useful in keeping my house intact. I am still working on the back deck which is abnormally large. It has three separate sitting areas. It feels never ending! I took a pic of the door and then when I zoomed I thought my cats were so funny looking so I included the close up. Egon looks so worried!
