Just out of curiousity .. did you work on the eyes first?

It shows promise!  I'd recommend taking a little more time on shading and making the contours softer.

You've got great control!

Don't be afraid to work the background!

I use two sqaures, and that is just right ... if it is much longer I'd say three just to be safe.  Good luck & Have fun!

Hi blueblythe!

I use Lush Henna.  I dye it once a month and my roots never show, I and don't bother trying to isolate my roots each time.  It's way too messy to fuss with that!  Since henna is basically a stain, you're not going to really be able to lighten your hair, but you can definately get it darker by doing the mix with strong coffee instead of water, or using indigo.  (Or, if you're going the lush route, adding a chunk of noir or marron to the mix if your using rouge).

Also I have a step-by-step how to on my blog if you're interested!

Cathou - that looks great!

I know the PoA scarves are really long - how long will it take to knit?  I am already working on an Orangina and have some xmas projects on deck -- do you think I can finish one by November??

Hi Wingnut!

I just wanted to give you some words of encouragement.  I wouldn't worry too much about art vs. craft.  Is one really better than the other? The important thing is to keep your creativity going.  I am both an artist (painter) and crafter (jewelry) too, although I prefer to call myself an artist and include anything I make as art.  I agree that it can be tricky balancing the two.  I wouldn't dismiss trying to submit some of your "crafty" work to a show  -- you may have to be clever about it, but I think it's possible.

It's really hard being an artist!  I guess that's how we got nailed with that brooding, starving, struggling stereotype!

PS - I'd love to see some of your art!  I took one weaving class in art school and I admire anyone who has the patience to pursue it!!

Nice work, solace!

I think the trick to making pencil drawings look very soft & photo-like is to really take your time.  Use really small, light handed strokes, and slowly build up layers.  It's excruciating but makes a great finished product.

Hi everybody!  I haven't posted to this thread yet, but I am about 2/3 through the first side of the lace.  I'm making it with KnitPicks Shine in turquoise.

hang in there novabird!

On the first skein I ripped out several inches at a time about a dozen times.  Somehow I got in the groove (maybe I finally memorized the pattern properly?) and I've been plugging right along.  I'm trying not to think about how much longer it will take me to finish.
