Smokin' Genie


Sorry about the wrinkly paper... I can't seem to draw anything nice on expensive paper.

ALSO! Krista Huot and I are attempting (very much attempting) to make a small set of prints (about vampyres!) for APE. That may or may not go through depending on how horribly lazy I am. But let it be known in public for an extra nudge of sorts!

God doesn't it just piss you the hell off when you go and try to get serious and creat a finished piece on a fancy surface, only to have it turn out extra lousy, but then when you are just playing around on cheap-o copy paper or something, you manage to create a brillinat masterpiece of sorts... UGHHHH!!!

Anyways, enough ranting... I say to hell with the wrinkles... this is another beauty in my opinion.

Yes! I think the term has been coined "paper paralysis." There's too much expectation.

Anyway, thanks! I'm going to try and fix her eye direction(s)....

Very nice piece! The previous painting's cool too. And thanks for the Krista Huot link, a new talent I didn't know, 'like it very much!

Smokin art indeded. I hope to drop by APE as well, assuming deadlines don't crush my soul.

Krista said...

oh so pretty :) And I think I'm more worried about ME being the horribly lazy one in this partnership!

Clio said...

Thanks all!!!

Ranny: I'm gonna have to dig up my files for those again.. I hope I didn't lose them @_o

Alan: SEE you at APE. We'll both be there with crushed souls, haha.... (provided I don't crush the soul of the individual responsible for making the deadlines crush me and get thrown in jail....)

Awsome painting. The water colors are great. I haven't used them since college and I was really, really bad when I did. So I admire those that can use them. Grat stuff.
