Photos, painting, etc... [Jul. 26th, 2003|04:02 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith

I'm getting ready to paint shortly - I'm going to work on a "Tiki" style piece. I like Tiki stuff, and after visiting Disney's Polynesian Resort with my mom (tikis-a-plenty) I thought I'd paint some polynesian scanes. I'm not sure if I'll do a tiki-goddess-Pele type piece or a mermaid/faery piece, or a little hula girl, hehe. I keep thinking of new things to paint - I'm kind of all over the place lately. I should get a notebook to write them down in. I'll be painting here:Jasmine's Webcam

Oh yes! I have some webcam shots of my new black contact lenses - click below to see them!

you look exactly like one of your paintings in the last one! Are they hard to see out of?

Thank you so much! Hehe, most of my paintings end up looking like me, even if I don't mean them to....

These are just regular prescription lenses - I can't even tell when they are in, unless I look in the mirror! That, and I can actually see. They are opaque, but the middle is clear (for the pupil to see - which blends in). Although - sometimes if I go from a very bright place to a very dark place, I'll get a "halo" for a second. I guess it's because my pupils dilate I see the colour of the lens for a sec. Nothing I can't deal with though!

Re: HELP!!!!!!

Matt, you & your iris-colored kitty in that icon look pretty whacko to me, too - maybe you deserve the paintbrush-weilding attack......? LOL!!! Yep - she do look a bit freaky - but she is very beautiful, too!

Are they prescription contact lenses? What other unusual options did you have?

Yep, they're made to my terribly-near-sighted prescription =) They are my full-time lenses now!

There are hundreds of special effects lenses out there - some laboratories will even hand paint custom lenses!

Your eye doctor can provide a wide selection, or there are some EXTRA cool ones here: http://www.9mmsfx.com/lenses.html

Thank you!!! Yeah, I've got "unnaturally large" eyes, lol. Some would say bug-eyes, but I prefer "doe like", hehe. They look a lot larger since I have no lower eyelid to speak of, and my other features (mouth especially) are very small. I think that's why I like other things with big eyes. When I was little I liked Margaret Keane's paintings (she did those "big eyed" 1960s paintings), and it kinda stuck. A lot of people assume my art is influenced by anime, but really it's more of the retro big-eyes style of Gig and Keane. And mostly my real life eyes, hehe!
