Hey everyone, as I mentioned earlier, I've been going through some personal things.  I'm back, sort of, although I am still extremely busy.

Anyway, I've been working at a different job since I last posted.  It's much better, less stressful.  My husband and I have moved into our own house, and I am enjoying my garden, BBQing and entertaining...

I'm thinking I may once again become a little more active in the winter with submissions, or at least checking out everyone's galleries to see how they've evolved since I left!

Seifer-samaHello. I just wanted to thank you for all of the nice comments you have left on my art. I really appreciate it. (I am shocked you went through them all) *laughs* I like that you really put some thought into your comments/critiques, it's very helpful to me. So anyway thank you. :)

AriaGunnirWell...  I will eventually get through everyone's entire gallery...  I might not do it all at once, but sort of come back to them, like when you put down a good book and go back to the next chapter.  I figure it's interesting to see the artist at the beginning and see the evolution to the present day, if that makes any sense (although it's a rather abbreviated history: if it were a true history, we'd have art on here from 3 years old up to present LOL)...   As for the comments, I prefer to explain why I like something, not just that I like it. And I tend to blather! LOL

Seifer-samaNo no it makes perfect sense... I actually like doing that myself. It's fun to see how a person's style "artistic eye" has changed. *laughs* And in all honesty, I really like long comments that tell me what they like and why or how I could change something to improve it, or even just the impression it has on them... any time I receive a comment like that it helps me to improve as an artist. So blather all you wish. ^ ^

AriaGunnirCool!  I'd love to be at a WLiiA show...  And it would be totally fab to meet someone from the show - the regulars, anyway!  And I agree, this is a great place for artists who want to introduce their art: it's not as threatening as putting it on display in a public place and actually watch people's expressions or hear their comments...  In university one has to show one's own exhibit and also have to explain why they did it, the reason behind it, etc-- so FAC is a very good opportunity to get used to critiques and how to give them... Although more about actually drawing than the philosophy behind it, but a good start nonetheless.  See you in the Forums!

DemonWolfei don't really do still life pictures all that often so this is a rare thing XD

AriaGunnirJust wondered...  Keep up the good work!

FirePhantom24Sorry your pic is taking so long, but just as I was nearing completion, my art life and my real world sort-of collided (and exploded). But as soon as I finish it, it will be up! ^^'

AriaGunnir on February 6, 2007, 12:08:16 PM

AriaGunnirWell -- I have 2 versions of the same one now in my gallery: which one do you prefer??

FirePhantom24 on February 6, 2007, 12:37:06 PM

FirePhantom24 on
FirePhantom24I think I like the original better. It's so cool! ^^

AriaGunnir on February 8, 2007, 10:16:49 PM

AriaGunnir on
AriaGunnirYes... I think you are right.  I deleted the edited version.  Although it didn't look too badly for the dragon, the pixelation didn't do any favours for the gryphon...

AriaGunnir on February 2, 2007, 9:28:50 AM

AriaGunnir on
AriaGunnirNo worries... I'm a patient gal...  I've only managed so far to colour in the background on your picture.  I am slow, but I will get it done.  I've decided to recant my earlier decision to just surprise you: do you have a favourite colour or two that you would like your dragon to be?

FirePhantom24 on February 2, 2007, 10:02:19 AM

FirePhantom24I like any sorts of blues and greens. ^^

Liedetector16Wow... it sounds as if you've been all over just about everywhere. Makes me feel sort of ignorant. ^ ^' that was the first pm I've ever received by the way, and I thank you for taking the time to type it all out! Seems as if I'm missing out on a lot of stuff!

AriaGunnir on January 29, 2007, 10:02:18 PM

AriaGunnir on
AriaGunnirWell, it wasn't all fun... Immigration and customs are a giant pain the hind quarters and we learned a lot about stuff that we didn't even know we would need to know...  But when you live that far away from your friends and family you can get homesick...  And give yourself time, you will find plenty of places to see and things to do...  I wish I could go to lots of places but time and jobs and unplanned emergencies (AKA Life) do hold one back sometimes.  Anyway, I like to chat on and on about visiting Canada, especially our province and city (we have a rivalry with Saskatoon! LOL).  I did a whole research thing for Alberta because we wanted to treat David's mom from Florida when she came to visit last summer...  Plus I type 50-60 words a min, so no trouble.  I better shutup again, I'm writing another novel! LOL  PM me some time if you want to chat some more...  8)

Liedetector16Wow you write AND draw?! How talented can one girl be?! What's your new novel about? Have you actually had one published before? I adore writing more than just about anything else in the world. I could always use tips form someone with more experience.

AriaGunnir on January 30, 2007, 11:36:11 AM

AriaGunnir on
AriaGunnirOH, I was confuzzled for a second.  I didn't do the research for a book, just for a trip. LOL -- other than some poetry in a teen art/prose/poetry magazine years ago, and a journal publication about publishing newspapers in classrooms/schools, and a few cartoons, I haven't done anything else.  I just meant this story I am working on (see my tab for Stories on my gallery).  If it turns into a novel, I don't know if anyone but me would publish it....  But I have 6 chapters so far under the main title: "ARIA: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF A FORMER SPACE PIRATE" which you can find at this link http://www.fanart-central.net/story-42116.html

Liedetector16 on January 30, 2007, 11:58:04 AM

Liedetector16 on
Liedetector16I will DEFINITELY check it out soon. I would right now except I'm working on a research paper. ^ ^

AriaGunnirShe's well-drawn!  Nice work... There aren't too many things I could say to help out..  I might point out is her right foot (our right, not hers) is either angled a bit too far out, or needs to have bigger toes... and because her left leg (our left not hers) is straight her hip on that side might need to be tilted higher up on that side and because her other leg is stretched out, then that hip would be angled down slightly.  And maybe the line up to her shoulder needs to go further up...  Everything else looks top-notch, though... I like how you did the skirt and how the hair is starting to turn out.  The torso is well-drawn, and the legs seem the right thickness; and nice face, too, I might add! This might assist: http://bp3.blogger.com/_yslQHqQ0lFg/Rb4C6Pj_qLI/AAAAAAAAAFA/tKA54339yDI/s1600-h/Hips.JPG

AriaGunnirErm... Weeeell... At the moment my husband & I are fighting off cold germs, but managing.  Our itinerary today consists of getting groceries, doing housework, & maybe if we aren't completely bedraggled after our chores we might reward ourselves with the movie Pan's Labyrinth... http://www.panslabyrinth.com/  Oooh, I really really wanna see it.   <><<By the way, in the interest of posting etiquette, would you be so kind as to just click "REPLY TO" when leaving multiple posts? It says Comments (Most recent 10).
