31  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / "Harness" - An Elephant Portrait by Danielle Trudeau on: July 15, 2013 08:35:00 AM
I love elephants. They are a symbol of strength, wisdom and hope to me.

This piece was done entirely with ink, the elephant itself has been done with your typical black ballpoint Bic pen, and the background with India ink. Pretty large too, 11"x14".

32  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Anubis - Egyptian Steampunk Flying Fox Sculpture on: June 26, 2013 06:58:21 PM

Meet Anubis, my latest sculpture! I think the theme is quite obvious, haha.

He's done with Sculpey clay, and painted with various types of acrylics, like that pretty iridescent gold you see. Such a pretty sheen to that stuff.

So I LOVE ink. My first experience with it with it art-wise was my first bottle of black India Ink, with a paintbrush. Then I started using plain old black ballpoint pens. And now I've discovered dip pens.


I like them very much. The level of detail that I can achieve with them is super intricate, which makes me giddy with excitement. Perhaps I'll try designing some detailed tattoos now!
Actually just had an inquiry asking permission for someone to get this tattooed on their body! As an artist, that is an epic compliment. Smiley
34  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Jai - Jackalope Dreamweaver Sculpture on: June 09, 2013 07:06:28 PM
Here is the next in line of my Dreamweaver series, everyone meet Jai!

Jai is a Jackalope with impala horns, rather than the typical pronghorn style. He holds his dreamcatcher and amber-coloured glass beads between his larger set of horns.

He's made entirely with Sculpey clay, then painted with both normal and metallic acrylics. His horns have been lightly brushed with red and green iridescent pigments.


35  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / "Shadows" - Painting of a Shadowy Feline on: June 04, 2013 11:04:13 AM
Whoo hoo, latest painting! Had to rush to finish this guy up, and I drove it off to a competition this morning. Wish me luck!

Its my largest detailed painting yet, 16"x20", entirely done with acrylics. Can't wait to do more!

36  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Eden - The Flying Fox Dreamweaver [Sculpture] on: June 01, 2013 02:00:03 PM
I just recently got into sculpting, it has been YEARS since I last gave it a true shot, and I just LOVE it.

This is Eden, one of my Dreamweaver series. Dreamweavers are a series of critters that are associated with dreamcatchers, and often have other little otherworldly features about them (such as feathered wings on a mammalian creature).

Eden was done entirely with Original Sculpey, I have had a box sitting around for years, waiting to be used. Finally its day has come!
And then he was painted with acrylic paints. And also brushed with some metallic bronze paint for a nifty effect. I do love my metallic paints. <3
37  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / By the Glow of Our Ancestors - Painting of Wolves And the Northern Lights on: May 01, 2013 08:02:59 PM

Have you ever seen the Northern Lights? If you have, I'm sure you'll never forget it. Its like magic. Smiley

I took on a challenge by trying to paint this with acrylics, and I must say, I'm impressed with myself. I did it on 11"x14" canvas.
38  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Emit - When Tigers Roar Butterflies on: April 26, 2013 02:41:48 PM

My latest piece, finally done exams!
The tiger and butterflies are done with a typical black ballpoint pen, and the splash is done with black India Ink.

39  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Steampunk-themed Hand-made sketchbook! on: February 22, 2013 08:45:58 PM
My first hand-made sketchbook!
Pretty small, about 6"x8" and about 3/4" thick. Black leather on the front brushed with copper paint for the gears, and then cut-out feathers detailed with more leather paint. Also a nifty little bookmark made with a real peacock feather and a gear!

This book is actually for a project that I am starting. I will be painting on the first page then mailing to book to another artist, they paint then they mail, so on and so forth. I have about 50 people signed up so almost all the pages will be filled!

40  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Andrew's Dragonfly - Custom Painting on: February 08, 2013 09:25:24 PM
Around December I was absolutely SWAMPED with life. University finals, commissions, fighting off the usual cold 'n flus flying around, and I was to leave for a 2.5 week vacay in Hawaii over Christmas. I was finding everything very hard to manage.
And then a friend approached me, asking if there was any way that I would be able to do a custom painting for him, as the perfect Christmas gift to his mother. I was hesitant at first, but I asked him to explain what he would like. With a slight pleading look in his eye, he explained the story of his late younger brother, and the significance of the elements he would like (such as the words "Andrew", and "I Hope You Dance", as well as the way the dragonfly is hovering above a pond). It was absolutely beautiful, and it touched me. So I told him, yes, I will do everything in my power to get this done for you before Christmas. So I buckled down, went to town and WORKED LIKE A MADWOMAN.

Sleep? What is such a thing?  Cheesy
