Painting! [Feb. 11th, 2004|12:03 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Guess what? I just answered a bunch of email, and then I went to the Post Office! Can you believe that? Who would have thought I'd spend my morning that way???? {/end sarcasm}

Now though, I'm getting ready to paint!

I'm working on a commission for wobblesnorts, and I'll probably finish her up later today. I've almost got the primary fairy in the piece finished, and I just need to add wings, some details, and a small fairy up on her shoulder, hehe!

After that I'll get started on a Fairy Dwelling painting. I'm uploading some photos I took on vacation right now from my camera, which should have some great reference photos. caitygrl96 also gave me a couple of photos I might incorporate into a painting too.....

Also today I'd like to get some icons to post up here for anybody who wants to use them! I might put some up in the faerie_icons community too, just to get some "official" icons out there. I keep seeing my artwork turn up as icons in the icon communities, and in other journals, and they always are just lifted off of my website with the ugly watermarks all over them, so I'd like to make some for my fans that don't have to have the copyright junk on them. Since they're just tiny little low res gifs, I don't think I need to worry about watermarking them, lol.

Ok - off to work - watch me here!

I didn't realize there was a faerie icons community out there. That's pretty nifty and promotional. ;D

Hey, if you still want pictures of me, I am looking for some right now! I know Del has a few that I sent her a LONG time ago. But I am looking for ones that I haven't manipulated or anything. I do have one of me and Zach. You could easily cut Zach out and just paint me, lol. But I don't know it is up to you =)

Laura's commission is looking AWESOME! I'm sure that peach grasshopper is jumping for joy right now =D

XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Certainly, Kayti! Just sent as many photos as you can!!! The more you send, the easier it is for me to paint you!

Re:

All you really should do in regards to your official icons, is ask for a credit to your username in the keywords. That's the way of the icon world in most of the communities I've hopped through, and the Lord of the Rings one I'm in.

Re:

Oh yes! As long as Laura doesn't mind, I'll probably offer the prints for sale! On her last commission she allowed me to offer a limited number, just to you guys here on LJ. I'll double check with her when I finish, and let you know!

Re:

Hey! I might take you up on that, actually! I'm slowly approaching people for photos, so I can experiment with different facial structures, body types, etc. I might be doing a "call for photos" later here on LJ, so keep an eye out!!! ;) ;)

Re:

I have a few I got off your site.....could do with a bigger better quality pic of you sat at your easel.....idea is you sat painting whilst a forest grows around you up through your studio....inspired by a certain Maurice Sendak children's book....with a few of your "creations" peeking here and there....it's gonna be called "Where The Strangelings Are"...need something to keep my brain occupied....my fiancee had to suddenly fly back to the States......(her grandson is really really sick, he's only 3 bless him).....and I miss her like crazy :(
