Along with a birthday party was a really bad storm two nights ago, thanks to Hurricane Norbert. There was a ridiculous amount of flooding, and our house got hit by lightning around 5 in the morning. It fried our modem and knocked out our AC unit. My husband spent the rest of the day tracking down the last Centurylink-compatible modem within a 30 mile radius. Ridiculous.
So, now I have internet again, and am working on finishing up editing and watermarking photos for some polish posts this week! For now, I wanted to share pictures of the last two You-Pick-My-Art designs, since both never officially had a post!
Two weeks ago you chose "dragon" for the design, and this is what I came up with, inspired a bit by Sleeping Beauty's Maleficent dragon:
I used all metallic acrylic paint for this one over Karma's Kiss "Berry Me Deeply." I had hoped the detail I put in the wings would stand out more, but the metallics are so powerful that it just buried any sort of detailing. Lesson learned for next time :P
This last weekend How To Train Your Dragon won the round of voting - funny that I did a dragon two weeks in a row :D I'm not complaining, I love dragons! Here's the design:
I'm not exactly too happy with the outcome of this one, mostly because I saw it differently than it turned out in my head. Hiccup was difficult to do because I just couldn't get his nose right >.< Oh well, I'll do better next time :) I painted this design over "Drink Up Me Hearties Yo Ho!" by Ellagee.
(Both props in the photos are dragon eggs I created, too!)
Have a wonderful day, I will have a polish post for you tomorrow!
