Caron,
As soon as my comment registered on your picture I saw that you had just finished commenting on my foot. :) I think this will be alot of fun and a good project for the weekend. The feet are being done in red water based clay that will fire kind of fleshtone and I am going to do the sheet in a clay that fires white.

Caron
04-05-2002, 03:36 PM
Koko, wish I could do that kind of stuff..it looks awesome, it really, really does. Do you have to bake it in a kiln?

onefromheaven
04-05-2002, 04:04 PM
Caron, you should give it a try, if you like we can help you in the sculpting forum. It's just another way of doing things, I'm sure you would like sculpting. This clay will be fired in the kiln, there are lots of kinds of clay to choose from, I just prefer the water based clays. I am starting the second foot now, I will post more progress pics as I go.:) Glad you like it.

Caron, Maggie and Gnu, Love what you've done so far!:)

Great images Bobby! ...not Spring here though, a very damp and cold Autumn.

...and now for the painful bit:eek: I Imp, hereby promise to not touch a drawing implement (no pun intended:D) all weekend, and create using only brushes and paint! (ouch, this is going to be painfull, I'm so far out my comfort zone that it disappeared over the horizon:( )

Caron
04-05-2002, 07:14 PM
And we have had heavy snowflurries here so no spring yet, accept I did see a Robin this morning...
You go Imp!! Cant wait to see what you do!!
Lol Wingnut...:D Do I suspect this is going to be your choice?...:)

Wingnut, When I saw the squirrels.....I immediately thought of you....and thought that Bobby had you in mind when he picked that picture...I know you will do that one , but we have all weekend so there is no telling what we will come up with. Look forward to seeing what everyone does:)

Just editing to reply to impetuous....I know you will enjoy using brushes and color this time....it's a chance to let loose.. have fun. I will look forward to seeing another side of your work.....have fun:)

Well, I'm in for this one. Snag is I'm on night shift and my first picture is finished, the one with the two pairs of feet in the bed.

HOWEVER I'm so tired that I appear to have given one of my feet 6 toes - what where that couple doing in that bed to get in such a state.:D:D I don't know :D sleeping of course:D:D
My drawing is in biro and obviously difficult to alter once in full flow.
I'll post it on Sunday afternoon after I've had some kip, and hopefully some others to post.
I can't post it now as I'm still at work and don't have the facilities.

Great fun, 'tis not often we get to draw feet - and certainly not in this rather interesting position.
By the way, who's feet are they !!!!:D

Caron, Kokopelli, auntie chaos... THank you for the comments
Yes Caron, now you mention it, I wonder who DID get there first????
Kokopelli.. I wasn't even thinking about the mood, concentrating too hard on details!!
Have finished it, waiting on the scanner....

This is excellent Rod ... I was thinking I'd try this one too but I'd have to do them in stone as I don't think I could get the skin tones ... you've done a great job on them however.

This is really nice gnu. You've done a great job on a hard photo. Love the way you've done them in the ink. I see what you mean about the front feet ... wasn't really clear in the photo either. Think I'd just shade it over somehow ... that's my answer to problem areas - of do the lighting so areas that I have problems with are shaded. :)
I really like what you've done here!

Bobby, Auntie and gnu,
Thanks for the encouragement. This is my first time doing feet .....it's fun but I could sure use a couple of models for this one:D Just kidding, I've solved the problem by taking off one of my socks:) I still have alot to do and time is not my own this weekend but I will do my best to keep up.

The ink is very effective. Don't think I would have noticed the front feet unless you'd pointed it out because my eye was drawn straight towards those gorgeous faces ...wouldn't have a clue how to correct it in ink, it's sorta permantent:confused: lol, I suppose there's always twink:D:D:D

Impetous, lol, I have spent about 5 or 6 hrs on them so far, I am a very slow sculptor:) They are about 7" high and I am going to use them for a table decoration. :) who knows, maybe as a centerpiece, for the right occasion it would certainly be an ice breaker. Just kidding, but it will be fun to see how people react to it.

Thanks Auntie, I will have a sheet on top and bottom in a clay that fires white. Once I have the four feet done I will experiment with the positioning:D This is too much fun really, I hope I don't offend anyone, I will have to be on my best behavior this weekend.:angel: :angel:

Thanks all for the kind comments. Actually I did this with colored pencils colored deeply then added some watercolor pencils (wet down well so as to almost be like paints) to try to get the flesh color. Because me scanner isn't working right my scan was very rough so I took it into paintshop Pro to do a few touchups. Depending on how my day goes and if I have time I'm going to try to work more on it with my watercolor pencils but this time I'll use my camera to get the true final product to post. :) The brushstrokes looks comes from the paper towel I used to blend the wet watercolor pencils I think. :) Wasn't intentional but I kinda like it. :)

Koko thank you for liking this. It was a different kinda thing for me..:) It had a very mythical quality about it I wanted to try and capture.
Auntie, thank you as well. Im glad you liked the water and the sky. It was one of the fun things about this one-blending the colours together!
Gnu, yea, they do look passionate..lol. Thank you too for checking it out.. a couple of times! I wasnt too sure if the reflection was going to work. Thanks for saying it did..:)
Rod, thanks for your kind comments..:) Im glad you think they pop..doing people and especially with so much skin showing!, was a real challenge. I think it was the illuminous quality of the water that attracted me to this one in the first place..:)
Imp, lol....yes, they do appear to be completely oblivious dont they? Thanks for your kind comments as well! This has been a fun one!!! (Course, hubby is getting spring fever watching me paint this...:) )

Thanks duplikate for the kind comments ... I keep thinking I'm done and then find some more time to work more on it. I've never done feet before so it has been a learning experience. Am finding the watercolor pencils help to cover up problems I'm having with straight colored pencils and visa versa. (I never professed to follow art rules) :evil: :D But am having fun and learning lots.

Kate, Caron and gnu,
Thanks for your comments and encouragement. It is a challenge for me to do these feet as I have only been sculpting since
Feb 13/02, I started here at WC in the Sculpting Forum. I am very thankful for all of the help and support they have given me there. I still have alot to learn, this project is a great one because I get to do four feet at once and that's pretty good practice.:) Hopefully they will look like two pairs of feet, I'm going to do the nex two a little bigger.....ok, on to foot #3. I'm free for the night now so I plan to keep going as long as I can, I really am very slow at this.

He suggested that you could go one better than the table decoration and do lots of body bits and leave the all over the house!!! he thought that leaving a foot in the freezer and then asking your mother in law to get out a frozen pizza etc. would be hilarious:D (lol, don't worry about him ...he's a bit odd :D:D:D)

Here is the latest installment, I'm starting foot #4 now. I love the idea for book ends Geoff lol Thanks to everyone for their comments and support and especially for being so patient. Once I have the four feet done I will have to wait a couple of days for the clay to reach the leather stage, then I will hollow them out, let them dry for a couple of weeks and then they are fired in the kiln. I should have the sculpting part done today .:)

Nice sketch animal! I like the way you've done shading ... I tried this one too but my shading techniques need work. Will study your sketch here better as I think you've done a good job.

Just wanted to thank everyone who commented on my piece. With 185 posts in this thread so far, it's too overwhelming to go back and thank you each individually--should've started sooner. Thanks to all of you for taking the time.

Also, I just want to say everyone has done wonderfully on their entries. It's been great fun seeing each interpretation of the images provided. It's made an otherwise uneventful weekend a great deal of fun.

Thanks, Bobby, for hosting a great AE once again!

(and anyone else who've asked) ... Think I forgot to mention what I used to do my 'sleeping under the blankets' piece ... it's a combination of graphite pencil (which I started with but is pretty well covered up), colored pencils (from my daughter's pencil case), then brought it into paintshop pro and did some blending and small touchups. Then went back to work and did the final work with my watercolor pencils which really helped to give it the skin color I think. Didn't do progress shots until I was starting the watercolor pencils work (if I remember right).
I'm more-or-less self-learned and don't follow any rules ... just do what I feel would make it work.) :evil: :D
Thanks to all who commented on it. I'm not sure I'll get through all the comments I want to make on others' works let alone thank everyone for their comments. :)
