Six Swans

I sort of went the fairy-tale route on this one. The Story of the Six can read the Grimm brothers version of this..... BUT! if you're willing to pick up a novel, theres a wicked re-telling of the classic fairytale by Juliet Marillier. It is Book 1 of The Seven Waters Trilogy called "Daughter of the Forest"

Anyways! the thing that always catches me with this tale is the sixth brother in the end. The nettle shirt incomplete he has to live the rest of his life with one Swan wing instead of his arm. Forever in a sort of limbo between human and animal worlds... He even misses his mate....cause swans mate forlife you know T_T these are supposed to be him

What now

Don't we all feel like a naked fat man sitting under a tree by a brook from time to time?

I'm going to give us more time for this one. For the rest of may, a piece of art with words in it. Since none of us did the quote thing, that could be under this umbrella term. So yes, a drawing with words involved/in it.

Happy drawing! <3 Enjoy the rest of spring! =D

This week's THEME

Well these weeks seem to be FLYING by. Like wow.

For this week's theme, I say we go with another optional choice thing. I like the idea of us having a choice. Thoughts? Good idea? Bad idea? Anyway-

1) Master's Works

2) Hands

Last two weeks....and this week! Woo!

Forthis week? Countour drawing. I haven't done this in years! So it was fun. Just a random magazine photo aaaaand my dog!

And then the last two weeks themes, slightly late, but better then not at all! I combined the two themes. Dreams, and Teeth.
I always, at least once a week dream about my teeth crumbling and mee pulling them out. There are alot of interpretations of these teeth dreams...fear of embarassement in an upcoming task, fear of being unprepared for crucial tasks ahead, frustration with physical appearances...and according to greek legend dreaming of teeth decaying and falling out means someone close to you is soon to die.
Teeth dreams suck.

Two Options!

Hello! For this week's theme, I'm going to give 2 options! (Everyone loves options, right?!)

First option is Monsters!

Second option is Blind Contour*!

*For those of you who may not know what a blind contour is- it's where you look at what you're drawing, like a model, or your own face, or a still life, but not at your drawing. NEVER look at your paper til you feel it's done. Don't lift the pen! (Unless you HAVE to... don't know why you'd have to...)

Hypothetically, these 2 themes could connect.

Anyway, have a great week! =D

sly grin...?
when I think of teeth I think of expressions where showing your full set of teeth is a big part. gnashing of teeth and grinning and snarling and all that.


Weelllllll looks like everyone is still pretty busy! I'm going to get to see Jordan today! That's right, he's STILL traveling! What a guy, all over the place!

ANYWHO! Here's my teeth sketch! I want to continue with this someday, seeing as my teeth are very precious to me, and losing them has been on my mind a lot lately.

So... how is everyone? <3?
