Thanks, Michelle, I sat at the dining room table doing them while Susie was watching television in the next room and thinking I was, too.

Christel, love the cowboy's stance, he's sexy walking his monitor so casually!

Susie, that is so so cute! I love the dragon's bashfulness.

Dianna, the acrylic pour makes such a cool background! The chcarcoal glaze one is stunning. That worked out so so well!

Woody, your's looks way better than the rubbery one from the movie. I remember that one bouncing along in the movie. Youv'e brought it to life!

Bill, so many scales! The coloring on this one is so beautiful too.

Pieter, there's so much personality and humor going on in your sketches. Clever!!

Re: June Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

Sorry I'm a day late with mine, we were under storm and tornado watches all day, didn't have my big computer plugged in.

This one is a lino cut print on a brusho background, 5x7 inches. Brusho is a kind of watercolor powder, it's really bright. I don't think the photo does it justice. The bits and dabs of ink are intentional.



This one is a doodling eternal dragon, I'm going to put a poem on him when I'm done. I'm not done yet, I'm slowly filling this up as I watch TV. It's just pen.

Virginia, very nice, but I have no idea what a lino print is.I keep thinking of the linoleum of my elementary school days. Cheers.

Thanks! I just keep remembering Susie sitting in the television room and laughing and then gazing at me, to see if I agreed with her. Of course I did!

Very nice work Virginia!

I looked it up Bill. According to wikipedia, "Linocut is a printmaking technique, a variant of woodcut in which a sheet of linoleum (sometimes mounted on a wooden block) is used for a relief surface." So you weren't far off lol.

Re: June Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

Yup, that's pretty much it. It's a lino tile that I drew on then carved and printed almost like a stamp.

Christel, the doodling one is a regular piece of 11 x 8.5 printer paper, it's just for practice.

Thanks for the lovely comments.
