This week--stained glass candle holder!

So this week, I'm posting an art piece I did for class. Which I'm allowed to do according to the goal I set :-)

Brought to you by my camera phone :-). And look, there is Annilynski working in the background!

This week--paisleys!

I decided to try something really different this week. The Illustrator CS6 pattern tool is apparently really cool, so I decided to try it out (not that I really know what it was in the previous versions, so I can't really compare... so.) I decided to try making a paisley pattern, because I really like paisleys. Turns out to be harder than it looks... unsurprisingly, haha. What do you think?


This is the first one I made.

This week--red rocks!

This week I combined two things I'm not very good at--landscape/environments, and photoshop. So its no wonder that I'm not yet satisfied with it. It still looks really... photoshoppy. Ugh.

The reason I'm stopping know is that my hand hurts, and I really need to give it a break. So. I think maybe my art for next week will be edits on pieces I've done in the past few weeks (including this one) rather than an entirely new piece... but we'll see.

This is based on a photo from a trip my family took to Southern Utah. I didn't go on the trip, but I still liked the picture.

Mucha Attolia

This week, I got a cold. Meh. The only good part of this is that I had more time to work on my piece this week.

This was an experiment in trying to emulate the style of the amazing Alphonse Mucha. It turned out OKish, I think. Its also a fanart piece--I thought Attolia would work really well in a Mucha poster.

This is how she turned out.

We're doing silhouettes with a sort of retro-ish color scheme. Forward Momentum! :D

Summer Goal--Summer Raccoons

This is my illustration for the week. Except... it doesn't feel quite done. Meh. I need to experiment with leaves in the background.
