Call for Models (well, photos at least.....) [May. 7th, 2004|11:15 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Good morning!!! The Fairytale poll is doing nicely - I'll probably end the voting tonight at midnight, and base my next painting upon those results!

Would you like to be immortalized in a painting? Yep - I'm looking for models. I want to incorporate a wider variety of faces in my paintings, so I'm having an "open call" for models!

Now, these are NOT really portraits (not necessarily like the painting I did of Delphine for example), but rather I'm just looking for new faces, figures, features, etc. to use in my regular paintings (particularly in paintings with multiple characters, etc. etc. etc.). ANYBODY who wants to send me photos is welcome! Any age/size/gender/race/etc.. Please send clear, preferably large images. Any poses are fine, but classical poses are great! Artistic nudity is fine (I will not share the actual photos - don't worry!). I will use these photos as general references for future paintings! There is no guarantee that I will use yours or even ANY of the photos, lol, but if I see some that would fit my "style" I will use them for inspiration in some of my future paintings! Unfortunately I can't offer payment or any other monetary compensation, but if I work a great deal specifically from a particular photo reference in which the finished product is obviously based on a specific person, I would be happy to send a free print of that painting to the model =)

To submit a photo(s) - either post the image link in a comment to this post, OR email me with the subject line of "ART PHOTOS" (my regular email JasmineToad@aol.com address). Please include your name, address (if you would want a free print), and carefully read the terms below:

THE FINE PRINT:
By submitting any photos, you are granting the usage of the photograph to be used in my own artwork. Please understand that I do occasionally publish and/or license my artwork, and that this artwork may be used commercially. Please be sure that there are no previous publications of these specific photos, and that you do indeed have the right to grant usage of the photos. If these photos are not of you, the submitter, please be sure that you have obtained proper permission of any of the people depicted in the photos. These photos may or may not ever be selected to appear in my artwork - submission is no guarantee of eventual usage. Please familiarize yourself with my typical subject matter, as your photos may be used in a fantasy/gothic/spiritual/occult/faery/fairytale/mythological setting. I will not be publishing or using in any professional capacity the actual photographs, just the paintings based (however loosely) on them. In the event the obvious likeness of a particular model is integrated into a future painting, a complimentary 8"x10" print will be offered to said model.

Okay - so, if you'd like to submit photos just email them to me (be SURE to say something like "ART PHOTOS" in the title of the email!), or post links to the images in the comments of this post. If you'd like to be elegible for a free print in the event I use your likeness in a future painting, please include your address and full name. Again - I probably won't use most of the photos, probably just if I see some that would work well with my style, etc.

I'm also working on a new "Gothling" (#6!!!!) - you can watch me paint HERE!

Ooo, I'll send you some. I have a question though. In most my pictures I'm wearing my glasses. Is that ok, or do you prefer if I take some without them?

LOL-i was just telling my friends about my adventure tommorow and they are sooo super excited to submit any pictures. so they are going to get all pretty -as if they aren't already naturally beautiful..damn them girls-and i am bringing my camera out tommorow. i love cinderella...that is sadly prolly my most favoritist fairy tell in the whole wide world. love it love it love it...but i realize that you may have to do it later so i will not be quite so heartbroken.

HEY NOW-I WAS A MODEL UNKNOWINGLY, but i love my painting sooooo much. it just looks so awesome in my office. i wish i could take it to work and hang it but i think the high ups would get a little concerned as i sit at the front admin desk like a monkey for all to see. I will hopefully have the pictures up and ready early next week because i will just have them develop them and put them right on a disk. coolness. i know jodi wants to see some new faces too.
