Finally finished my last 4 paintings for the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge, and my carpal tunnel problems are glad to be done with the whole thing! I thought last night I wasn’t going to make it, I was in so much pain. Today I took it a bit slower and managed to complete #27-30. Whew!
So the first two are a protesting witch, whose originated from an image I saw online of an anonymous group. I loved the idea and had to do just one more protest piece for this challenge. The next is a fancy fox based on Phrixy’s character, Campbell, who is an aristocratic, shapeshifting vampire. These two are both ATC sized.
Next is a steampunk lady for a deco book. My hand wasn’t happy with doing the line work this morning, but there it is. I really wanted to do a lot more detail because… steampunk, but I just couldn’t manage it. It’s still here, so maybe I’ll fiddle with it more another time. You know, when I’m bored. Hahahaha!
I believe that one is a 4×4″ piece. You can see in the upper left corner that it’s held together with some chain, which is kinda cool. And of course I had to do a peacock feather for colour, because I can’t help myself. 🙂
Okay, last of all, but certainly not least, is a cute blue tiger I did for a larger deco book of big cats and monkeys. Naturally I chose to do a cat. Because duh. Again, I can’t help myself.
I really like how this one came out. I may have to print out a copy for myself. He is based on a photo. I say ‘he’ like I have a clue. I dunno, it strikes me as a he for whatever reason.
So that’s it. I win a digital rosette on my signature over at the iATCs forum. But more importantly I finished with a lot of deco books, and sent out a couple envelopes full to other people. One was asked for, and one will be a surprise when the recipient gets it. LOL I hope she doesn’t mind. Surprise art! Make more art!
Anyhow, that’s that. I’ll probably rest my hands a while before taking up another challenge. But I must say, the art on that challenge thread was outstanding. Truly. Wow, guys. Bravo!
