In Progress...

Project #1  

Cake Topper!

Based on our little characters from the Storybook.
It's going to be the Fox and the Bear holding hands on the top of the cake. Simple.  :)
I started this like a month ago.. just got around to posting the pics now! Sorry blog friends.
It's made from Sculpey III polymer clay.
It's not solid. I wrapped the clay around aluminum foil so that it's not super heavy and falls through the cake. They'll be on a wooden platform somehow, the clay won't be IN the cake. No worries. :p

(In case you were wondering, he WILL have arms soon.)

Project #2

Painting Self Portrait

Pretty self explanatory :)

In progress! We'll have two or three weeks to finish this. 
This is how far I've gotten in 4 hours. I need better color. I am NOT that tan haha.  :)

I suck at this. I am very bad at drawing the human form, and especially skin tone shading. I prefer colored pencils and layering color, or digital haha. It was hard for me to post this since it's not very good, but I have only just started. I dislike posting works in progress, but I DID promise to post more. So this is for you guys! Enjoy a nice laugh.  :)

Where I've Been

Hello whoever is out there reading. I noticed through my absence here I've gained 4 new followers!

Welcome whomever you are, and I'm sure you are waiting for updates (as am I!).

As of right now school is ruling my life. Work from 8-5, school from 6-10pm 2 nights, then i have homework!

My painting class has been pretty darned fun! I was hoping to take pictures of everything I've made, and wanted to post up pictures of the process too, but that isn't happening. It's hard to grab a camera when you are smeared with oil paint, turpenoid and liquin. Anywhoo, watch for some paintings soon, and I hope to have some neat little drawing up here soon enough!

I offer my condolences if there is nothing to satisfy your visual hunger.
Here is a random drawing in illustrator. we're trying to figure out what kind of doors should go on the built-in hutch in the Dining room.

Wedding countdown...  211 days....  :)
Also! Hunger Games.... Any takers? I've read the books and got my ticket. 8pm tonight!
