Don't you hate it when...

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 4, 2014, 12:32 AM manage to find some time to draw, then end up squandering that time because the picture just isn't working? yesterday, i decided to be bad and use a couple hours to sketch out an idea that popped into my head (when i should have been working). sketching and inking it barely took any time at all and things were going well, but then it all fell apart. i'd tried working on the light and shading before i did the colours (as i did in bridesmaids), but when i added the colours they just wouldn't go together. i ended up creating a new lighting layer, trying to preserve the shading i had using multiply, and revising the colour scheme... but as i went on it just made the picture worse. it reminded me of drawing back in 2007-9 or so, when my pictures tended to end up dark, claggy, and heavy with poorly-applied shading.
so somehow i wasted half a day flailing (and failing) to get a simple picture done, rather than just quickly dashing off a sketch and posting it. i guess maybe i'll just chuck out all the colours and start again from the lineart when i have time. it's just so frustrating though, when you are aware that each brushstroke is just making it worse!
Wippity WIP - the party by Caregan

in other news, though, i did paint a halloween pic for this year (lookit me being organised for once!), but you'll have to wait for that one :3

so anyways whilst i'm nattering, did anyone see the site update news mentioning that we are going to get status updates for text/pictures? i'd really like to have something shorter than a journal entry in addition to the rather specific-use poll, so that ough to be cool.

Going somewhere? by Caregan
Going somewhere?
hearts pumping, nostrils flaring for air, they hop and stagger across the dark field. the night is full of dark and sound - trees soughing and swaying, the hard grass crackling underfoot, and their own muffled groaning and puffing. but nothing else around them: no lights, no engine, nothing but their own hopping footsteps. they twist about, as much as they can with their necks haltered together, but there's nothing there.
then there is a click and a sudden flood of light roots them to the spot, and they freeze like bunnies right in front of the land rover's headlights. they can only dimly make out her silhouette, perched on the bonnet, as she laughs: "going somewhere, boys?"
ok, having status updates and an activity feed on your page is great, but i wish there were at least some settings for the activity widget, like customising how many entries to show. as it is, the box is huuge and pushes the comments box miles off the bottom of the page :(
Orientalisme 1 by Caregan
Orientalisme 1
this morning, silenceyoursword reminded me that we haven't done much for the Year of the Harem Girl (and we're already halfway through october), so i thought i'd better paint this.

luckily i'd been messing about with redrawing an old picture from the distant mists of 2006 (before i was little caregan!), and had spent the weekend thinking about harem art, so i kinda had this on hand. i think it goes without saying that when we draw harem art, we are thinking of the fevered imaginations of nineteenth century european painters rather than the historical institution: to delacroix, gerome, ingres and other painters of orientalisme, the harem was all about sensuality, sexuality, mystery, and an excuse to draw naked girls (the motive behind a lot of art...) so let's remember for a moment that the real harem once ruled an empire and, even when not doing that, was a hive of activity not a place for lounging around on cushions.
got that? ok, back to the imaginary harems of the european mind, because sometimes we all want to lounge around on cushions in chains :D

anyway, want to see how i drew 8 years ago?

today's pic began as a redraw of the girl on the right...

Wippity WIP - the party
this is the pic i was having such trouble with, after some more mucking about with.... it looks ok in greyscale, but the shading comes across as far too rough for colour. will probably need to go back and do a new greyscale shading (i do not have the time to paint individually shaded colours!) before this will be ready to submit.
