1  Re: Ongoing ATC Swap -- April 2018 Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by WideEyedLife on: May 13, 2018 04:54:11 PM


I received 3 atcs! 

From Witchhippie on my goddess theme, this tantric beauty.  The flowing cut on this card's border give it interesting lines!  Way to change things up!


From craftylittlemonkey, an atc with "Mom's Swearwords", and ---bonus!--- a "K" for my "atcs you wouldn't find in a children's book" theme.  She was trying a new watercolor technique with the "mom swears" one, and I think it turned out really pretty!  And the K is a perfect addition to my collection; love the play on words!



Thanks, ladies!  Cheesy

I claim thanate for little good things.
Claims--1/ Sent--0/ Received--0

I'm Jessica, living in good ol' Indiana US of A.

For me, glitter goes nicely on most anything!

I prefer cards that can fit into a trading card sleeve, so please, no 3D or too bulky to fit in a sleeve (bulky that *does* fit in a sleeve is just fine!), and 2.5 x 3.5.
 Smiley  Also, please, no religious, political, or gory (see note at bottom).

Some of these themes may be daunting---but, even if you're not sure of your skills, please feel free to try anything on my list, just for a chance to play with something new!  Smiley  I love anything made with sincerity, and to the best of your ability!  Smiley

*Portraits with personality
*Animals with personality
*Inanimate objects with personality (like, eyes on a toaster, smile on a heart, scissors that are angry)
*"Oy! My head is too big for my body!" (Doesn't have to have the phrase---just illustrate it.)
*People or animals wearing fruit, or fruit themed clothing, or fruit themed anything involving people or animals.
*Still life---with something unexpected hidden in it.
*People at Carnival/People in Masks
*Mythology
*Cute Halloween
*Cute Halloween costumes
*Ghosties
*People with antlers
*Fantasy people
*Realistic fish from FISH LAKE--particularly trout.  (The link titled "Fish Lake" will bring up a webpage that lists the species of fish found in the lake.  That specific lake and its fish species (especially trout) are special memories for my husband.
*Elaborate costumes (People, animals)
*Elves
*Whimsical people
*Grandfather Frost/Sneguruchka/snow kings, queens
*Mermaids
*Nudes---sexual or not, any sexual orientation
*Big eyed adorable cute things
*Googly eyed things.
*Goddesses.
*Illustration of the phrase "twisting midnight" (your interpretation)
*Purple people eater.
*Shoes with fuzzy things in them.
*Gingerbread men/women/people.
*Fairy tales.
*Your favorite swear word (But, make it cool---not just, you know, pencil written swear word on a white card.  That would suck! lol)
*Frogs.
*Cartoon-y things.
*Easter (but not religious, please)
*Steampunk.
*Cupcakes.
*Gloriously rotund and cute fairies.
*Cute penguins.
*ABCs you *wouldn't* find in a children's book (eg., "F for Fornication", "R for Robbery", "S for Spooning")  Please make sure these are portrait orientation.   LETTERS I NEED: E, G, H, I, J, L, M, O, U, V, W, Y.
*Cartoony Christmas, especially featuring candy canes!
*Clue characters: I need Professor Plum, Colonel Mustard, Mr. Green, Miss Scarlet, Mrs White.  Add a background room from the game, and a weapon from the game.  Your choice.  Smiley (Portrait orientation on these ones, please.  Smiley  )
*Scribble drawings:  Start from a scribble, and find something interesting!  (Be sure and finish the card off---feel free to erase any scribbles you don't use!)
(Random example of a scribble card, started with a scribble, ending in a weird little dude:
)
*Thumbelina.
*Mushroom houses.
*Things living in shoes.
*A card in a medium you're still experimenting with (what a chance to try something new!  Be it watercolor, pencil, oils, gel pens, mixed media, alcohol markers, what have you!).
*A rehabilitated card: do you have a card you started but never finished?  Try and pick it up again and see what happens *this* time!  (Heck, even take a "before" picture to share with the group of us later, if you want!  Smiley  )


    My tastes in "gore" are very particular, so I prefer to not receive any unless I know what it looks like beforehand and I know I like it. Wink (I have a phobia of zombies, especially. Smiley )

From rockingbearranch on my "swear words" theme:

She says, "I googled 'swear word generator' and got to the Foul-o-Matic which gave me the phrase 'Bottled Testicle Voyeur.' And down the rabbit hole we go."

O. M. G.  This is just the weirdest atc I have ever received!  lol   Holy schnikeees!

From curiousfae, on my "ABCs you *wouldn't* find in a children's book" theme:

Z is for zipper!



Hah hah!  This is just the right level of creepy!  And, *no*, it definitely wouldn't be in a book you'd give to a three year old!  Reminds me of NCIs and the goth-girl lab techincian's obsession with skulls and creepy things!

Well done, curiousfae!  A wonderful addition to my collection!  Smiley

8  In the World Beyond (an other-world themed ATC) in CHALLENGE 123 ENTRIES by WideEyedLife on: April 04, 2018 07:27:22 AM
Soooo, here's an Artist Trading Card to celebrate the colors of Spring!

This little lady, finding herself on a somewhat dreary and grey distant planet, has imbued her helmet with rainbow colors, so that everything she looks at is no longer dead and dreary, but alive with the bright cheerful colors of spring!



In the World Beyond
an ATC by Jessica Utley
Handdrawn with Prismacolor Pencils on Green Paper


Some closeups:



If you look at this close-up you can see the underlying color of the green paper coming through.  This subtly influences the overall feeling of the drawing.


The fun thing about Prismacolor Pencils is that their waxy nature allows them to blend colors into each other, creating a smooth finish, when you want it to, like this area in the back of her neck.


I will forever be grateful to Craftster, and the Ongoing ATC Swaps (which I've been involved in for 10 years this year!) for introducing me to this mini-art format that has allowed me to hone my skills!
