*Two* New Paintings! [Jan. 26th, 2004|09:40 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I did two, very differently themed, Valentine's Day paintings!

This cutie already received a Valentine's Day card and is waiting for her little boyfriend: "Waiting for My Valentine"

But this one was scorned....

"A Valentine Scorned"

Hehe.....

WHOA! GO JASMINE!! They are both beautiful!! I was going to paint some human hearts in my "Queen of Hearts" piece, but I opted for a vampire skull instead:) I have a feeling "Waiting..." will be snatched up on BIN if someone can get to it fast enough. She is so beautiful it's almost heartbreaking. I really want to learn to paint hair in light shades like that, but I really can't figure it out very well. That's why I usually end up painting black or blue or dark red... Anyhoo, if I had the money, I'd snatch her up myself:)

I always love your white-haired faes, she's so precious. "A Valentine Scorned" is right up my alley, too cute!

Those are so great! I love the wings on "Waiting". She is so cute. Her hair is adorable!

Poor "Scorned"! She has really gorgeous hair though!

love em

I think both of them are just so damn cute. I really like waiting but scorned reminds me of myself a little too much. I have always hated valentines day with a passion. I hated valentines day so much in highschool that I made an anti-valentine's day shirt.

Re: icon

Thank you!!!!!! Jasmine did an AWESOME job making that icon! I wish I could take credit for any part of my icon, lol. But actually a good lj friend of mine animated Del's amazingly brilliant portrait ;) I'd LOVE to see that painting from the commission Jasmine did for you! Just to see a peak of that cute little blond in your icon is not enough ;)

Kayti =)

Webcams are neat things.

Wow. Webcams. Amazing objects. Wish I had one.
It was astounding to watch these two painting develop in such a short amount of time. When they were listed on e-bay, I bid on them just for kicks knowing full well I was going to get outbid. And I did within just 30 minutes. I love shark fights on e-bay. However I REALLY want to own an original.. one day... when I get the money.. yep. I'll buy me one.. but I've got tooooo many things things things right now that require all my good spending money. Life goes on. The eyes have striking brilliance. They make up the whole personality and atmosphere of the paintings. The angry one is very striking. I love the red. The highlights in the eyes of the girl in waiting is just too sweet. These are things that I love to see in paintings. Detail in eyes. Wonderful. However I cannot choose a favorite of the two, because I fit neither personality. Nobody bothers to send me valentines. I don't hate valentine's day. I just bum the chocolate off the dieters. They don't want it anyway. ;)
