She's finished! [Aug. 29th, 2004|09:46 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
She's finished!

It took me about 3 hours JUST TO SCAN IT IN.....urgh....

But it's so worth it - I love how she turned out.......

Clicky below....

"Allura"

(Matt named her). She's huge - her head is bigger than mine, lol. She's up in my eBay store at a fixed price until somebody gives her a home =)

I'll have prints of her soon though!

But now I'm off to answer email, and eventually make some dinner....

She's gorgeous! She reminds me of my Tigerlily, but she's only 5" x 7" - dwarf compared to yours! ^_^ There's just something mesmerizing about a fairy sitting like that stareing at you.....^_^

Thank you!! >^___^<

Mesmerizing is right - Matt actually first suggested calling her "Mesmeric Fairy" (I didn't like that hard "k" sound in there though, hehe).

What a pretty tigerlily fairy!!

WOW! Beautiful face! I really can't recall many of your faeries having an actual name. Yes, all your pieces have titles, but Allura is like knowing her secret identity!! Cool!

Thank you Misty!!!

Several years ago I used to give all of my paintings names instead of titles (I even had a "Misty", hehe, back before I knew you!). I stopped doing that though because I was afraid I'd use up names that I would want to use later when I was a more accomplished painter. "Allura" just sounded so pretty!

Allura is highly collectable awesome! With a huge piece like that I bet your buyers would be so tickled to see a scale reference having a photo of you painting it or something.

Thank you John!!!

Don't worry, hehe - my reminder-calendar says "Halloween is Coming" on the 1st of September. I actually wrote it there after Halloween last year. Last Halloween was when my little nephew Theodore was born (he's a goblin baby!), and with all of the excitement leading up to that I completely forgot to do any Halloween paintings. So I decided that I would start early this year, hehe. I've wanted to do some all month really, but I didn't want to do it too early....

I'd say within the week you'll see some Halloween art from me. I'm trying to keep up with all of the holidays - everybody seems to really enjoy my seasonal artwork a lot, and Halloween is of course my favourite!!!

Is your username based on a book called Weetzie Bat? It's such a good book.

I find myself making this comment to you a lot lately, but I mean it again, she's one of your finest pieces! The composition is really great, and the colors are so intense, she is really stunning! And, again, I love her feet!!!

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! I tuned into your camera when you first started painting her and said "woah!" out loud because she was so big! Her eyes are so perfect. Allura definitely fits. I love that green with the black.
