Pirates in Paradise! [Jan. 26th, 2006|09:59 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I finally finished it - I had so much fun with this one, I could have gone on adding more details until I ran out of room, lol, so I just stopped and it is awesome!!

Click below to see....

"Pirates in Paradise"



Isn't it neat? And it's flippin' HUGE too! And if you look through the auction, you'll see a cheezy picture of me standing next to it, in some pirate gear (thank you Matty, lol).

It's up in my eBay store, but of course you are all welcome to use eBay's "Submit Best Offer" if you'd like to suggest another reasonable offer.

It's really a great painting - lots of fun stuff and cute girls!

Oh man - we went to the Animal Kingdom this morning for a couple hours with my mom & Bill. We split up and then Matt & I went to the Annual Passholder Preview for "Expedition Everest" (new Disney ride!) - I won't give any spoilers - but it is AMAZING - what a great ride! Exceeded my expectations, which were quite high. Yay!!!

Now I need to catch up with some stuff and fix some dinner - I am starved!

chuckles, yes you did run out of room. I was watching here and there. Turn the cam on and look at your work, perk a brow going holy cow how much caffine is she on.... everytime i looked there were new elements, a parot, a tree, more and more people.. and more and more detail... giggles, I was wondering if you were getting ready to start adhereing additional canvas to it so you could keep going... see the end result being an 8 foot wide image with a full boat and sails.
Grins, It looks great hun.

Yo ho ho and a bottle of run, very nice. Love the expressions and the sky and the outfits. Love the colours.

A world where you can go on Disney Rides as part of leisure time activities in your daily life = tons of fun :-).

Me too!!!

I used to wish I could live in one of the little Spanish style houses at the beginning of the ride (the one with the wooden balcony!). But no, they don't let you live there =/

Can't complain too much though, I live in Celebration and that was built by Disney, so that's got to be one of the closest things to it!

Do you think they'll be having any previews of EE when I'm in Florida? I want to go on it! I've heard the Yeti is amazing.

It IS amazing! Matt loves it so much, lol. He, Amber & Chris & Heather are riding on it right now!

I think they will most likely be having pass-holder previews still (and you'll be a pass-holder!). You'll love it - it's a cross between Big Thunder & the Matterhorn!!

Thank you so much!! >^__^<

Here are my "official" rules as far as icon usage goes::

*******
*While you are welcome to crop/reduce the image to fit the icon size, please do not alter the image in any other way - do not erase, cut out, add text, change colours, animate, etc. the image.
*Please credit ©Jasmine Becket-Griffith, and if possible a link to http://www.strangeling.com
*This is for personal use only - please do NOT offer the images for "re-distribution" (such as re-posting in image/icon/avatar/graphics "communities", or websites meant for other people to use the icons, etc. etc.)
*******

Sorry for all the rules, but thank you again!

I've said it before, but you seriously need to consider taking your art to DragonCon. Pirates is supposed to be huge this year, so all of your pirate pictures would sell like crazy.

Thank you Candace!! I had way too much fun with this one, lol.

I would LOVE to do something like a cartoon! I originally planned on moving here to Florida to do an internship with Disney, but by the time I actually moved I was doing well enough on my own that I didn't need a day job. I would still love to somehow be involved with animation... maybe someday...

Holy Crap! Now see this would totally fix my problem if I could paint as fast as you! I can't believe how fast you turn these out, especially when they're so huge!! Jasmine...put down the coffee.... and step away from the painting.....JK! LOL!

Thank you Erin! I must admit, I do paint pretty fast =) I sometimes actually get rude letters from people saying that I must have helpers or that I'm outsourcing to Hong Kong (seriously, I had somebody say that!), lol. Pieces like this that are so much fun to paint, they go even quicker because I will just sit there straight without wandering over to the computer, hehe.

Ah, I'm not a coffee drinker - but I did go through a few pots of tea on this one!
