21  Keep'em safe in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by bonesaw on: July 29, 2009 02:07:56 PM
Yellow highlighter + flood =  Cry

This is a drawing I had once on display at the American Academy of art a long time ago, after I got it back I took it home and a few days later I had a flood.

I live in a basement and had most of my artwork stored in portfolios laying on the floor, most of my work was damaged but I managed to save a few good pieces.

For now on I keep my important stuff up high lol.

22  The good in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by bonesaw on: July 24, 2009 12:24:44 AM

Hello fellow craftsters!  Wink

I am posting this today to show you guys what I'm working on.
here's a piece I'm drawing  of Clint Eastwood from the movie The good the bad and the ugly, this is graphite (pencil) on bristol paper.

Clint Eastwood is just one part of the drawing, I am placing bandit Tuco ("the ugly",)
and Angel Eyes ("The Bad,")on the lower portion of the drawing.

I'm taking a little time off the digital stuff and doing a few paintings,drawings and I'll toss in a sculpture to refresh my mind

Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Grin

23  Box Monster Cartoon Tutorial for all Mediums (Img Heavy) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by bonesaw on: July 21, 2009 08:52:44 PM

Welcome all ye land lovers to me first tutorial of many more to come!

I was planning to make this a photoshop tutorial but that would've limit some people that don't know their way around it yet. I decided to mellow it down to include all mediums. You can do these guys with pencils, painting, pastels, sewing, even as cakes! The ideas are endless.

The idea is basically a basic shape box to be simply designed for anyone to do, you don't have to be a master artist. You can touch up the details to any level you want. These are inspired by cartoons...when they pan to the character's face and their emotions are exaggerated to the point of hilarity.


You don't want much on it, two eyes, a mouth, hands and nose are extra.

To get ideas and start, you want to sit down and sketch out different expressions. You can go online and look for pictures of your favorite cartoon characters and copy their expression. Go crazy! Mix and match different facial characteristics.

Once you decide on the monster's expression, layout the sketch on the object you're going to put it on. It could just be a face...or you could add hands doing things.

Now that the monster has a face and is all layed out, start painting on the body to the color you chose. (I made mines in photoshop but you could use whatever the heck: watercolors would be interesting, doing a square pillow would be cool) If you're using fabrics, play with different textures and colors.

Then you can paint on the facial features, afterwards you can really let loose and paint some texture on the guy. You can add boogers, pimples, pores, tattoos, fur, play around until you're satisfied.

To finalize it, you can add accessories. Hands holding on to things, making gang signs, flipping the bird, give the guy a little tie perhaps.

Now that you're done, here's some ideas on what you can use them for. You can make icons, pillows, hang them up as wall art, screen savers, greeting cards, plates and dinner ware, a kid's abc book, the possibilities are endless.

I hope you like this tutorial and gives you creative ideas to add to your arsenal.

If anyone gets inspired, post some pics on the thread, I'd love to see what you create. Any questions you might have, I'll be happy to answer as many as I can.

24  Digital Mayhem in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by bonesaw on: July 18, 2009 09:23:00 PM
Hi, fellow craftsters! I've been a fan of craftster for a while and decided to become part of this community. Hopefully I will be able to help some people in their projects and I could get some help as well. I'm a jack of all trades. I sew, sculpt, paint, draw and cook (mmm mmm). I'm addicted to pizza and cartoons. I love Ren and Stimpy, Spongebob, Chowder...they all have those old school close-ups of their wacky faces. That's what inspired me to create the two digital images below.

I created this guy so he could be my craftster avatar.

It's called "Almost In" (that's what she said)

Next, is this blue guy

This guy's called "Fun Time, Ooah Snap!" I have a tutorial set up to post soon.

That's the face portion of a little cherry called "Where's the Pie at?" Currently, his body is lost, maybe in my belly.

This is a digital painting study (one layer photoshop), a replica of one of the paintings of my favorite artist, Bouguereau.

Any questions or comments, I'm happy to reply.
