I thought I'd post it here in case any of my Flisties fancied having a go - you can put anything and everything in your book, you don't have to be an 'artist' to contribute.

Never mind, it's all good practice!
First one (done on sketchbook paper which is really rubbish at taking watercolour, soaks it up like blotting paper).
Second one (done on this weird plastic-like paper I bought to try out, and it's quite fun to use).
I'm wondering whether I can now go over this subtle watercolour with something else and make it more like Tom.
It's hard to get photos indoors, but I've taken a few to spam you with LOL.
From the step ladder!( Bear picspam )
NB this post contains nudes of both sexes.
Bhangra bear is coming along, his waistcoat is taking a while but is starting to look how I envisaged it so yay! The combination of paint and acrylic markers is working well, though the markers lose their nib integrity pretty quickly so I'm having to trim them back with scissors.
That being said, Clarence is coming along!
Lion picspam alert...

Here's the room awaiting delivery this morning. The tape measure was there to reassure me that I'd cleared sufficient space for a 1.7m long lion.( Read more... )
However, I entered a design for an otter trail in Dartmoor and that one got accepted - so sometime in December/early January I'll be getting a 3 foot tall otter sculpture to paint up! That one is being run by the National Park, not the usual company who do the trails nationwide, and I think it's slightly less professional in its approach to things. The reason I say that is because I sent in a Harry Otter design first of all, and the chap in charge emailed back to say they already had one of those, so would I like to submit something else? The deadline was only a couple of days away as I'd only heard about the project late, but he wasn't bothered, said I could take a few more days if I wanted. So I asked if anyone had done the Hound of the Baskervilles (which is set on Dartmoor). He said, no, and he'd reserve the design idea for me! Still i was happy to get official confirmation today.
This one doesn't pay a stipend like the Wild in Art ones do, but I can claim back up to £100 for materials, and if mine is one of a 'golden' 25 otters that get auctioned, then I get 10% of the auction price. Which is better than nothing, though I've no clue how these golden otters get chosen.
So with the otter and three large plastic ducks to paint for the Grand Norwich Duck Race 2017, I think I'll be quite busy for a while. LOL
It's been pointed out that I should have shared some piccies so here they are:

, quickreaver and I were talking about memes and art and stuff and quickreaver came up this idea: the ArtRec10 meme! Give us links to ten of your favorite pieces of SPN/RPF fandom artworks. Could be on LJ, tumblr, deviantart, wherever. We know there's lots of faves, but try to pick a few. Let's make today a little more beautiful! Couldn't we use that right now?
Topics may overlap — for instance, your h/c fill may be digital — but we'd like to see ten unique reccs, if you can manage it. Also, be sure to provide a link to the original art, so folks can leave love for the artist. If you choose to post the images, mind the image sizes and be sure to put it all under a cut.
Here are mine, trying not to repeat any from my Feb and April rec posts...

Do I go for one of each - an SPN and a RPF prompt? Or try and be more open, and offer pics that would be suitable to either genre?
I'm toying with a possible powers!Sam which could also be a powers!Dean pic, depending how you look at it. But I've got this idea about smoke and voodoo which is more about the picture I want to draw than the story I might get. And then there's the kind of fics I'd love to tease out of RBB - like superheroes or war stories, or spaaaaaaace...
What to do, what to do!!?

Bear in mind, this is just a small sample of what's out there, and it's only the tip of the iceberg of wonderful art I've admired over the years. Plus, they are not in any particular order. I LOVE THEM ALL and I wish I could just post everything here because it's all SO GOOD.
But I can't, so here's a selection.

Wonder if anyone will spot my artings....

This is a community for those who wish to art every day.
Anyone can join, watch or post.
Despite the name, any kind of art is welcome, be it stained glass, sculpture, papercutting, figurine painting, photography, anything at all!
You don't have to post every day, unless you want to. You don't have to post everything you draw, unless you want to.
You can post anything, from stick figures to the roughest of sketches to doodles to linearts to WIPs to finished works. There's no pressure for anything to be perfect or polished - this is about drawing every day, not being perfect every day :) Though if you want constructive criticism, you're free to post asking for that, too!
I'll try to have a daily post wherein people can comment about what they've been working on, or leave links to things they don't want to post as entries. (Should I post daily, or once a week? Twice a week? Feedback on this is appreciated.)
Encouraging comments are encouraged :D
wedraweveryday! Join, watch, post, spread the word! The more people the better :)
