1  Six ACT speed watercolors in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by itesser on: February 19, 2009 07:17:58 AM
I did these as warmups last night, even though they were the last things I did before bed.

(I don't know why the scan is so cropped. I'll get a better one later today, but, for now, I kinda like the oddly trimmed version.)

I timed myself and tried to spend just 20 minutes on each of them, but usually did some touching up after that 20 minutes was up. Also, I didn't do any pencil sketches, just went straight to ink and watercolor, trying out new techniques and trying to push my style some.

The pinup chick is the exception to both of those guidelines. I did a little penciling for the basic anatomy, and spent probably 40 minutes on her from start to finish.

What do you think, should I stick with them?  Wink Cheesy

2  Magnetic Mario Mosaic in Completed Projects by itesser on: April 27, 2007 09:04:01 PM
Almost two months ago I was messing with Magnetic Poetry on a friend's fridge, and it got me thinking. Now this is on my fridge. Smiley

At least 12 hours of work, and 1502 little triangles of magnet, and it's finally done.

He's bustin' stuff up (unofficially)

I like this angled shot, too.

But all the work cutting sheets of magnets into little pieces wore the print off my rotary cutter. Sad

I can't decide if I should do Final Fantasy job class sprites or some MC Escher tiled images next. Tongue

When I saw the subject line I thought it would be like this for the hood (minus lady inside):

... and I thought, "why didn't I come up with that?!"

I see that yours are the right shape, but not blue and spangly. Wink

They look great! The second one is a little hard to see (might be me), but definitely enough to get me interested.

Maximus is pretty shy and difficult to catch, but once I got to him, he was too frightened to move, and let me take some pretty good pictures.

He's actually red, not brown, and while this particular model has been licked by a coyote, I can make another like it.

My official Scrapling adoption site is here: http://www.itesser.com/destash
One costs $3.14 including shipping. (4 for $10)

I'm actually adopting them by random lottery (like those programs where you offer to pay for the schooling of an orphan), but this is a one-time fee, and after your Scrapling shows up in the mail, you're responsible for the caretaking.

Anyhow, Eliea, if you want one like Maximus (I'll even sew the eyes on!) just say so in the "optional instructions" in paying for it.

I totally understand the newlywed-strapped-for-cash thing, I'm in the same boat!
