View Full Version : Christmas Candy
12-05-2008, 08:31 PM
Good Evening, All!
Someone at work brought this candy in and I knew that I was going to have to paint it. I think there is still a bit to do, but I would say this is better than 90% complete. Needs more highlights.
I caught it in it's natural habitat, sitting on my computer table!

That looks really good Paul. It can't be easy doing a wrapper like that.

Looks great but why did you eat the rest of them, they would have looked lovely as a bunch :D

Hey Gray!! Thanks! You know, believe it or not, this was easier than I thought it would be. I'm getting ready to post a completed version now.
Hey Jean! You know, this guy was the last of the Mohicans and just before I posted the picture of it, one of my kids came up and wiped him out! I didn't even get ONE! Yes, it IS rather tragic! HA! :O)X

Okay all! I got back to finish this one quicker than I thought I would. just added a bit of highlight and smoothed out the rather spotty shadow. Still some room for improvement, but my patience wears thin quickly!! :)
This is another GIMP/mouse combo. Took me a couple hours or so. What FUN this was!!
Thanks for looking!

Thanks Kenny!! As I look at both of the above pictures, I'm not sure I can tell the difference between the initial posting and the one that I reworked! Oh well, everything falls apart when you hit 40! :O)

Very nicely done.

Nice work Paul.. and yes they both look the same to me.. Thats okay seeing you are falling apart at 40 :D LOL... Need to get a bottle of Elmer's Glue. Not to sniff though just glue the parts back on and You will last as long as me.:lol:

They look the same to me also Paul.:) 40's a piece of cake, just wait.:lol:

That's very impressive with just a mouse. Very well done.

Thanks All! You know, I probably didn't change the name on the file! Oh well - not like I needed further proof that I'm a 'wackjob'! hehe!
As I said in another post, my old identity is in limbo right now because I haven't been able to get the password retrieve to work for me and perhaps no one is manning the help desk these days? I dunno, I've checked my spam folder and haven't a thing in there from WC!. Still working on getting it back!
Happy New Year To You All!!

Maybe too much holidaying at the help desk. :) Happy New year to you and yours as well.

Nice job on the wrapper. I do think it is the same picture since the shadow was what needed work. If you can, post the final pic.
Me, I've had all the holiday "junk" food that I can handle. January will bring some big diet changes for me.
