SHOT - Weeded Autumn Bird

SHOT - Weeded Autumn Bird by luckylace222
SHOT - Weeded Autumn Bird by luckylace222


This is my contest entry for VictorAndLizzy's SHOT Contest where you had to draw yourself or a representative character shooting yourself with a "hand" gun.

I started drawing the picture in the lobby while waiting for my dentist appointment, and I always think about morbid things at the dentist, so that may have added to the unintended dark atmosphere in the picture.

It is a poor-female-anatomy representation of a bird shot in the Autumn. I was going for the "kill two birds with one stone" reference, but you could not do multiple characters, so I just opted for one "bird." If not for the terribly confusing detail, you could make out the ruined feathers, weeds, leaves, blood, and debris from the shot. The bird is a little angel now. -I think that was what I was going for.

I kept getting distracted drawing this picture (playing Slender, eating, watching Youtube videos, Tumblr, PORN) which frustrated me because if I do not finish something immediately, I have trouble coming back to it. It took a good deal of determination to finish this picture, and I thank VictorAndLizzy for letting me have the disciplinary experience.

Bic pen and lazy Photoshop coloring used. I know it is impossible for you guys to find Koji in this picture.

luckylace222 Oh, I mean "Thank you." I humbly accept the prize. YOU CANNOT TAKE IT BACK NOW.

Your comment is funny because:

1. "OBVIOUSLY, my mind was blown xD" Was that meant to be a pun? Because if not, that is even funnier. My humor sense is getting more and more corny and ridiculous. How does Moses brew his tea? Hebrews it. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

2. "I'm glad we were able to relieve you of your contest itch!" I woke this morning with my first intense case of itchy hives EVER. I am so freaking itchy right now while typing; When I went online, I see this. THIS IS *scratch* what I get for *scratch itch benadryl scratch* winning a contest *throws everything out the window*

HEY. You know what? -Just thanks for even having the courage and determination for starting a regular FAC contest. I really appreciated the extra "activity" to FAC, and it was only natural to pay my respect by entering myself. Maybe when these new FAC remembers get older and possibly stay with FAC, they will want to contribute their two cents like this too!

Dang it, I lost 5 points in originality. NOT GOOD ENOUGH- START OVER MY ART CAREER

luckylace222;___; *scratches her butt profusely* WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME LIZZY AND VICTOR YOU ARE CONDEMNING A BEAUTIFUL SOUL!

I drew that picture immediately after I read your comment (so not to lose all my good feelings, it is best to draw at the moment). When I cannot express my feelings adequately on FAC, I tend to cheat by distracting them with pictures. It probably worked for you.


I have made the request on your profile! P: GOOD LUCK FOREVER. I am sorry for the dumb request- LOL!

luckylace222Also, I thought either Tofu or Ren were going to beat me. If I was running this contest, I probably would have score-wised been beat. I am probably my worst enemy artistically.

I love the detail; I find it difficult drawing in pen.
I'm always afraid I'd mess up @.@

luckylace222 on August 21, 2012, 12:24:27 PM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222I decreased my discomfort with the pen by drawing a whole bunch of comics with no rough draft and just pen- it really helps!

Attempt getting out a piece of paper and a pen and that is it! Challenge yourself and see what you get!
Thank-you for the compliments! Your incredible artwork is also so fun and beautiful to look at! BOYS BOYS BOYS 8D

Hybrid_Sunshine on
Hybrid_SunshineSo coooool. Been a while since I looked at your work; almost forgot how much I liked 'em and how inspiring they are. o__o There be so many details!! Eyes dizzy by awesome! :D And there's Koji, photobombing your pics as usual (in a good way, of course!). :) The feathers falling away from her body almost look like leaves themselves.. So, I think you captured the messiness of a bird getting shot. Very nice; wish I had better criticism, but I don't. Keep it up! :P

luckylace222 on August 21, 2012, 12:18:23 PM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222I have never heard of the term "photbombing!"" That sounds the word "cockblocking!" Hehrhehehr

Actually, I did blend the feathers with leaves- good eye! Or maybe I am just good at drawing leave-feathers. I did not want to make it difficult to find the leaves and feathers, so I just blended them. I was debating whether I should make the bottom as messy/detailed as the top, but I guess the semi-clearness on the bottom was needed. Does the "movement" from the bottom look weird on the picture? It looks weird to me!


ZeroMidnight on August 21, 2012, 7:24:08 AM

ZeroMidnight on
ZeroMidnightDAT DETAIL. I love the fade of orange and red with dark blue at the bottom, plus the black detail everywhere is amazing. Love this~ *faaaves*
My favorite feature about her is her legs, idk but they look beautiful and so cool in their detail too.

luckylace222 on August 21, 2012, 7:46:22 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Thank-you so much for the comment! Really! The legs actually seem kind of abnormally small and stick-like to me- which I can use the excuse that she is partially supposed to look like an evil little angel bird, but yes. Thanks a lot! Does this look like it needs to be sharpened more? Something about it seems blurry.

ZeroMidnight on August 21, 2012, 7:48:56 AM

ZeroMidnight on
ZeroMidnightI think the legs are great, perfectly suiting to her as you explain anyway.
And I'm staring at it and am pretty sure it's plenty crisp in it's sharpness. :) Hope you win the contest btw! *highfives*

luckylace222 on August 21, 2012, 7:55:16 AM

luckylace222You should join the contest too! You have time!

Creativity is worth is an unbelievable 50% for this one, so I might not win. P; It is always fun to know you have got other competition.

ZeroMidnight on August 21, 2012, 8:03:49 AM

ZeroMidnightEh, I haven't got even the foggiest idea for this contest floating around in my head though. No entry this time. Sorry.

Wow, that's a lot of creativity points to work for!

luckylace222 on
luckylace222DO NOT BE JEALOUS; don't do it, it is too tedious.

I would be jealous of your art if you had some new ART TO POST! Post some new art!

Rubius on August 20, 2012, 6:44:21 AM

Rubius on
RubiusI would except I don't know what to draw. Everyone is asking me for porn so that is what I'm drawing and I can't really think of anything good/funny/inspiring to draw. *shrug* I would like to do a comic, but all my attempts have come out less than spectacular. That and I would like to have one chapter done before I even think about posting. I hate when people start a comic and then 1/3 of the way through it they just stop and make you wait three months for another page. I want the entire thing done before I post even a single page.

luckylace222 on August 20, 2012, 10:31:35 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222-Sometimes, it is extremely hard and takes much determination and planning to keep a comic going for a long time AND FINISH it. ;-; I have struggled with that myself. I have realized that it is better to give them something than nothing at all.

Do not be frustrated if it is not perfect. Comics never are. Concentrate more on getting your idea across than your actual pictures!

Rubius on August 21, 2012, 7:15:32 AM

Rubius on
RubiusI don't want it to be perfect, I want it to be good. I would like to just write them as a story, but then it loses that certain something you get from the visual part of comics. I'm just not sure what to do and that usually ends up with me doing nothing.

luckylace222 on August 21, 2012, 7:56:11 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Go ahead and do the story! That could be your "script" when you finally want to do a comic! Comics do not have to be rushed either!

Rubius on August 21, 2012, 7:57:35 AM

Rubius on
RubiusLOL, and maybe if I write it I can con someone else into drawing it. ^_^'

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Yes, Koji is the orange cat! I really do need to advertise him somehow.

I should make an underwear picture ad with him.

GOD DANG IT, I KNOW RIGHT? I AM SICK OF BEING A GOODY GOODY TWO SHOES WITH MY PEN. From now on, I am going to draw with my toes.

Thank-you for the comment! Good luck on the contest by the way (yes, you must still join it- you are mostly the reason I joined)! *peer pressure*

luckylace222Dude, there is NO way you can say that bout yourself. You sometimes use the same traditional material as me (at least ink and coloring wise), and I have seen your painted works. Girly, you could totally make an abomination of scribbles like this.

Thanks for the contest! Good luck! *cries*

My-MelodyPoor female anatomy representation you say? You sure can notice your drawings faster than I do with my blobs.

Lovely cross hatching lines, very delicate yet I bet it took 3 years to get it done (all that frustration with line after line after line makes me want to scribble everything if I'd cross hatch my drawings). For some reason, I feel that the background gives off too much attention and it drives away the actual focal point. Maybe it's just my eyes, but I can't really say for sure about others. And I have to agree with darthexodus, there is something kind of left out that makes me drawing a little incomplete... Ohhh dang it, my mind can't think why it is.

Overall, it's very good. Now I should get back onto sewing and poke myself a few more times.

luckylace222 on August 20, 2012, 11:39:51 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Yes, I was quite frustrated with this piece- and it did not even turn out all that great! I WILL WORK ON THAT. I think it is the fact that all those details are "nothing." They are just squirls that do not contribute much to the picture. The picture has no essence; it just has random patterns everywhere. The wings basically save it, but that does not change the fact that this picture is almost just a chick posing with a good deal of confusing pen blurbs around her.

Thank-you for the comment!

You sew? I want to see some of your crafts in your galleyr! CRAFTS NOW!

AHAH I am the queen of making incomplete pictures, and no one can figure out what that missing element is!

*does the same thing*
I love all the feathers and stuff (at first I thought they were tentacles- blame my dirty mind XD )
they are so pretty just wanna stroke them all ;3;

I found Koji By the way >:D

luckylace222 on August 20, 2012, 4:11:46 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Even with tentacles, this picture would not be that sexual!...............much.

TUmblr is like a random universe with almost no restrictions. It is like...I could be searching up "Rainbows and Flowers" tumblr, and I could get random porn pictures here or there. IT IS SUCH AN UNPLEASANT/PLEASANT SURPRISE.

Nuh- uh! Where is he, huh?!

phantom223 on August 20, 2012, 7:23:19 AM

phantom223XD very sexual in a good way

That is the same with google images! I serched up 'five dollar bill' AND it came up with porn DURING SCHOOL TIME DX

He is on the right-hand side, near the edge of the picture, Hanging down from one of the woman's feathers.

luckylace222OH TOFU IF ONLY WE COULD SKYPE RIGHT NOW SO CAN TALK TO YOU I NEED TO TALK TO SOMEONE INTERESTING IN MY LIFE- I do not wannntt to draw lame stuff anymore- burghhhh


I have adjusted the face and nose (made it bigger) and changed up the bright orange color to more of a yellowing-red relaxing down to bright blue. I also added a black border so the details can get focused more. I also dodged and burned everything so the face can pop out better. Does it look a little better? A little? I want to throw this picture violently out the window, but I know it just going to float calmly onto the ground.

No, it does not matter what you draw or what I draw. I am always grounds for criticism from anyone, no matter how obnoxiously ASIAN, animu, obsessed-with-Captain-America-awesome-artist cool beans they are. I will forgive you despite all those obvious flaws you have. YOU HAVE A ZIT THERE

luckylace222 on August 19, 2012, 4:30:55 PM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222No, you are not being picky. I know exactly what you are talking about (well, not exactly, but I can sense that lack of something too). My favorite pictures are the ones that have a special totem or something "different" than all the other detailed, pretty, but plain pictures out there. I knew I did not put that something in this picture as I attempted with my other pictures, and it shows. I rushed and dreaded working on the picture because I knew there was not as strong of a result afterwards. ;/

It is nice to know someone did not just give me praise though; I really need to reflect on when I know that when I really do not give a picture all the effort on purpose, it shows to the audience.

Thank-you for the comment!
