Who has art from the past week?





I think that's the best picture I took of this piece. There are three more pictures of it on my Flickr account.

I'm currently serving in AmeriCorps as a tutor of literacy and English for Speakers of Other Languages. This piece is an illustration I drew last Wednesday, October 8, to illustrate the distinction between a driveway and a parking lot.

I think these were over the course of the last two weeks, but I didn't post last week, so, here they are. They are all done on tegaki a program akin to MS Paint, but online.

And my favorite, and one that took the longest:

Wow. Those are stunning. Absolutely amazing. I think that's now my favourite Vila of yours (the twinkle in his eyes and the curving smile), and Julius Caesar is nothing short of awe-inspiring.

Dude.

Awww, thank you! I'm surprised you like the Vila so much. I'm fond of it, but it's probably not my absolutely favorite of him. I do like it though. I just suppose I feel since I put so much more work into Caesar I have to like it more, you know? :) Vila is almost easy to draw these days. :) ♥

Caesar is, well, a work of art. He's just amazing.

Are you really dressing as him for Halloween? If I lived over there, I could be a legionary. I have the entire outfit complete with sword.

Thank you. <3

Oh no. That was only if money/construction was no option, that's what I'd go as. I'll probably wear my Harry Potter costume if I go out with my nephew. Alas.

Wow, great work! Caesar is just amazing; so much detail and such a wonderful regal attitude.

Vila is totally adorable.

Oh, I DID art this week

I am too sleepy to code, but if you go here, you'll see a statue I made from concrete rubble and cement.

Re: Oh, I DID art this week

Thanks! It took days just to haul the rubble to the construction area, but I am very pleased with the final result. :^)

Thank you! I had a lot of fun figuring out how to make fur look shaggy and bearish. :^)

Re: Oh, I DID art this week

Thank you! Yes, he took days- I had to wait between each layer of rubble because bits would fall off otherwise. :^)

Swift, Classic Who, Chibi Dalek

These are all from the week before last. I ended up being really ill the middle of last week and hardly turned the PC on let alone draw anything.

Common Swift in digital airbrushClassic Series 1 Hour AlphabetSuper Deformed Dalek Thay in digital airbrush


Yesterday I also made an animated version of the Dalek's lights.

Feeling lots better now so expect new art next Monday (or Tuesday evening if this is anything to go by).

OOh! Gorgeous. I particularly love the swift. That would be amazing on a professional greetings card.

Re: Swift, Classic Who, Chibi Dalek

Thank you :)

I actually got to see the Moonpig card in person this time and it did look extremely professional, although I noticed it was cropped a little smaller than the preview implied so I'll have to put in more padding next time.

I adore the chibi Dalek! It almost looks chocolatey. Mmmmm, Dalek...

Yay for submitting a map drawn on a blackboard for a lesson, it totally counts as art :)
