I don’t know if I like it better with or without the landscape-y backgroumd. What do you think?
Getting there, getting there…just…have…to… colour it…in….
So, this card is meant to be in the style of pychedelic rock posters from the 60s. I still want to add some extra detail into the borders, but you get the gist. The colour sets above are taken directly from several original posters. But I’m having trouble choosing which way to go! Any thoughts?
I’m really proud of my recent work and my mother bought me an amazing, big, new set of watercolour pencils today (!!!!) so I thought it was about time to show you guys what I’m working on. I apologise for the bad webcam pictures.
I have finished one card: Pasties.
Here is an updated close-up showing the new colouring work I finished tonight on her fascinator, lips and pasties:
I am very proud of the way the roses have turned out as details like that are not my forte.
Here is my Penis Obsession Painting which I have either almost finished or finished, depending on your opinion as to whether I should go with Pixie’s badass idea of putting a blue heart-shaped sapphire necklace on the image in the little painting, a la Titanic. I am keen to as I think it would add to the fuckery, but I don’t want to overdo it – necklace + tophat seems a little overkill. Thoughts?
And here is a close up for you:
And finally, my WIP: Honey Badgers.
I am very proud of the way this one is turning out. I did not think that I would be able to design my own cartoon badger for the background OR tessellate it, yet I have done both.
Here it is:
And the close-up so you can see the background detail:
Here’s my lady. She’s all done, just need to scan her up. I’d like to put the outlines of lace in the background but I would be absolutely awful at it and have no idea how to Photoshop >_<
And here is my card with the painting done, the next step will be to stain it. The stain will drop into the tooled areas which will make them stand out out and it will make the metallic paint a bit less shiny so it will look a lot better after that step. I’m hoping to do the staining tonight so I may be able to get a picture of it tomorrow.
And here it is wth the stain applied. I may still do some touch ups on the paint before I apply the finish, but this is pretty close to how the completed piece will look.
Here’s the artwork for my tarot card. It’s layers of fabric, some embroidery and the ever present chrysanthemum cabochons.
This is basically the final piece, but I would like some input on the best way to get this from fabric art to useable digital document.
The piece is 9 inches x 15 inches, which is in proportion to the final size. I have a scanner and can scan it, but it would be scanned in 2 pieces and would need to be digitally “sewn” together. I also have a 12 MP digital camera, and could photograph it as well. I was wondering if anyone who has more experience with photo editing software than I do would be able to clean it up a bit in Photoshop or another software. I could probably do a little touching up myself, but am not that experienced in it and others would easily do a much better job than me.
Let me know what you think…
This is my card so far. I need to go back and clean up the tooling especially the backgrounding then on to painting and staining. My goal is to make it look like an old radio or other machine.
This is a work in progress image. I need to add a lot more shading and detail (especially in the background) and swap out some bees.
