The first one is just a profile pic I made a while ago for my Facebook. The second was just a project for fun. The last two are the last of my fruit and veggies projects; apple and banana. Yay!!! I'll write more about them later. Bye.

Those would be the sounds of an artist satisfied with an art project... and that's exactly what I am.
I recently completed this piece in my AP Art class. I've finally chosen and embarked upon my concentration for my portfolio. My concentration is Character Design based on Fruits and Vegetables. (oooh the excitement... it's creepin' through ya, isn't it?) The piece posted is my first brain-child: a character based on Red Lettuce. I did the original sketch on paper, then scanned and completed it on Adobe Photoshop CS3. I used my wonderful, amazing, beautiful, sleek, sheckshie (sexy), Wacom Intuos 3 Tablet to do this and am soooo happy that I own this piece of heaven-sent artist's equipment. Thank you, Dad, for sending it to me for my birthday. I very much appreciate it ;).
Anyways, it took me about, oh, six to eight hours to complete, but I had a very good time doing it. Part of the reason it took so long is that I'm teaching myself the "ways of Photoshop" as I go.
The next piece is coming along well, although I hated it for the first little while. It is based on Apple, and I've got the sketches completed for Citrus, Pomegranate, Banana, and Artichoke; those should be completed soon, especially since my mom's computer with my Photoshop on it will be fixed tomorrow! YAYYYYY!!!!!
Ahhhh.... I'm sorry I rambled on for so long and I'm sure this post probably doesn't make much sense sooo.... yah. Anywayz, here it is:

Anywayz, here is a project that I am very, very proud of. It was, of course, an AP Art class project. I did it in watercolor and it is drawn from a photo I found on Google Images (I was going to ask the photographer for permission to use it- but when I went to their blog I found that it didn't exist anymore. I am quite distraught about it actually). Back to the pic; I printed the photo out grayscale so I could be in control of the color choices, then drew and painted this picture from it. I love it- can't wait to see the grade I get.
Oh, and you "watercolor purists" out there- I didn't know we weren't "allowed" to use black watercolor- my art teacher informed me after I was finished that we were "supposed" to mix to colors to get black.
Now, I ask you, why is black in the frickin watercolor packs?
Here you are:

The first picture was fun. I drew up a grid with all kind of things like multiple arms and legs, red hair, blond hair, love, technology, horns, wings, etc... what came up after a series of dice-rolling was love, awesome socks, multiple legs, and blond hair. I depicted her spreading her love in a dark city, adding warmth to the dusty window. Notice the bricks behind her (love 'em) and the poisonous black/green sky over the city. I love her hair and face and the way I painted the body. I was very impressed with me, haha.
I use the same method for the 2nd picture and drew a picture based on the keywords air and psychic. Therefore, I drew her with light blues and whites, wings, and a glowing purple eye and "psychic energy." Nerdy, I know, but I like it. I love the contrast of her dark skin with her white-blond hair.
Both were done in ink pen, watercolor, and water-based markers.
