#7 She rarely moved...

Let's try something new. Here's a quote to work with:
"She rarely moved unless the handle turned. Then she struck like lightning."
I'll tell you where it's from later - it could mess with creativity.

Yeah, yeah, this is super late....but at least I POSTED!!!! So I took this quote quite literally. When the handle turns (or the lever that operates a carnival ride is pulled), this crazy Greek goddess animatronic WILL strike with actual lightning. Or rather, cheap sheets of metal that are cut-out like lightning bolts. But this lame carny ride has seen better days, so now she rarely moves. Get it??


Here is my interpretation of this quote! It took me awhile to actually think of something for this one. Also: I cannot draw guns. See, I posted! It just takes me awhile. I ride the posting short bus. -Shawn

I tried something new-ish. I may have just cheated and put a bunch of textures on, dunno if they're overdone. I'm still trying to figure out all this color stuff. -Emily

Arg. I blame this on being sick right now. I don't really think this is communicating as much as it could. I need to get better at pushing things further. It's just a little safe and boring to me... but it's cute. Sort of. I don't do cute that often.

DOG! I like it a lot :D. And there is nothing wrong with subtle and cute. (As that's sort of my M.O. as it is.)

aww, dog! I like the expression
I'm currently attempting a scene that seems to be beyond my painting abilities. We'll see how it turns out.

Carder saw this and says he hates you Emily.

Me, well I think you're just swell. I like your drawing too.

Emily said...

That's why I like you better than Carder.

She's sort of Daisy Kutter-ish
