Final bid 784 credits. This is the first card to go to Mississippi!
I really wanted to do this card in color. I think there were a lot of great possibilities and the separation of the areas would have been more effective. I need to learn how to make a good character that isn't flat without my handbag of tricks. I feel like I've gone back to the start of January. I'm trying to learn what to do with the inks since much of my regular graphite vocabulary isn't working. Hopefully I can figure it out before the end of the month. I'm glad these cards are not commissions. I don't have to stress over making anyone happy. I really like the insides of the wings and I feel like there is potential there. Maybe I can do one like the seahorse from January with no lines just dots.
I'm wondering when the click will take place. When I'll really stop caring and make something fabulous. I'm looking forward to that day. I'm going to try tomorrow. Just start with a meditation on freeing my thoughts and see how that goes.
I did a couple sketches at church. Ash said the one I liked more was scary and to do this one. I think her drawing was better. It consisted of a giant mouth with eyes on the teeth. Such uninhibited creativity. If I could just bottle that like a perfume I'd make a fortune.
