Graphite on 2.5 x 3.5 inch smooth bristol paper. Final bid 1210. This card is going to Wisconsin.
I must have turned off my alarms this morning in my dreams. We woke up late and had to get Ash to school behind schedule. I only had about an hour or so before nap time to work on my card. I tried a few different things and nothing was working. I'm not sure if I had anything by nap time. I know I erased the concept in it's entirety a few time. I was feeling rather uninspired. If I didn't have to make a card today I probably would have opted out of it, but sometimes pushing through the "writers" block can turn out something good.
My second try I used an image of a stegosaurus for a basic body format. They have a high arched back and low in the front. I think this drawing would have made a good video to show my thoughts since it changed dramatically multiple times. If you look at the neck area where the first tentacle goes across was the end of the head to start and the creature on the back was just the hugh arch. I am curious to see what the winner will decide about this pair. If the relationship is symbiotic, or if the creature is eating the other. I enjoy hearing the various things people think or see in the images. It's much nicer then saying... no it was supposed to be eating it and you don't see it! I don't know what it's doing and it is freeing not to have to know.
I had a lot of interruptions tying to make the card today, including some deep cleaning (which might be where the aggressive top creature came from lol) I think I might have been in the waiting room when I decided to make the two characters instead of one.
So I forgot about february 29th this year so I actually get to make one more like this. I am thinking I want to make something that looks like it's leaping.
When searching for a creature use the specific name or number only for best results.
