So, the other day at D&D, my friend Kevin was getting frustrated at an assignment where he had to do art with 'calligraphy' lines.
I thought it sounded like fun, so I gave it a go. The results weren't the nicest things I've ever done, that's for sure, but I think it was a good exercise. It was smooth, and fast, and not something about which I needed to care about.
I tossed a bunch, but here are the ones I saved.
When I started, I wanted to do big, thick lines, and was using a big, thick brush, and painting on black construction paper (with details being done with a smaller brush). None of these turned out well, but I find that I sort of like this image of Sprot, for some reason.
Then I moved on to just using the thin brush. Sprot again.
A dragon. (Painting on cardstock now, hence the various background colours)
Quare. Not sure faces really work with this, but hey.
Quare again. I think I hate this one, actually. Not sure why I'm posting it.
Um... Quare's finger.
Anyway, these are fun. I'll probably do more, later.
Narcissus, a character of Mystcloud's, for the PE's Makeover exchange.
My character Taurus - another attempt at being inspired by Greek statuary. I don't like this one as much as the Badri one. (I think Taurus doesn't do heroic poses well, and so I had trouble being "inspired".)
