Painting! [Jan. 11th, 2005|06:30 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I'm painting!

A giant painting! One of those "I've got to roll this bastard canvas up on the ends to even fit it all on my art table" big paintings, hehe.

I'm going to start on an Atlantis themed painting. I was thinking about making it underwater, but then I thought maybe I'd show an above water scene during the actual fall of Atlantis. I might change my mind though, it's not up to me - it's up to my paintbrush I guess.

You can watch me HERE on my webcam.


Oh yes - after being hounded for about three years, lol, I've finally setup a DeviantArt gallery. I've actually been a member for the better part of a year, but I just today got around to posting a few paintings. I'll try to update it semi-regularly.

http://jasminetoad.deviantart.com

What else did I do today - oh man, I backed up a million files, burned some disks, that kind of thing. Fun. I might have one or two more to do, so if the webcam goes down briefly don't worry, it's just my system stalling to burn CDs, lol.

All right - off to work!!!!

I'm excited to see this painting!! Wesley and I are watching your cam and he is very excited to see your arm moving on the computer, lol! He's weird ;)

I've never really understood DeviantArt, lol. I know it's probably not that hard to figure out, but I never really looked into it. Everytime I go there I just get confused! It seems like a popular place though, so I'm sure the exposure will be great!

Ha ha! I'm confused by DeviantArt, too! Somehow I managed to pass the Elfwood quiz, but I still can't figure out DeviantArt! Go figure!!

Yeah Deviantart is a funny place! When I first joined I thought it was so weird, there are so many categories in other categories you get kind of lost lol!

That's good! I still haven't put anything into my DeviantArt account yet. I had a lot of people tell me to do it after I posted asking people about it. They explained that the legalese wasn't as bad as it sounded. I'm getting there!

I so want to have my Atlantis painting finished, but honestly, it's a long shot! LOL It would be wonderful to see it with so many other wonderful pieces though! I really look forward to seeing your piece as I have always loved your pieces that have any kind of ancient theme in them!

DA isn't such a nice site in my opinion. Sure the service is great and its free, plus the exposure is wonderful, but I don't liek the dull colour scheme. LOL I am so picky.
Are you doing the Atlantis painting for a compition? I read online somewhere that some site is having a compition with that theme so I am wondering. If you are entering I am not going to bother entering cos you will win anyway :-) LOL

I don't think it's a competition (if it is, nobody told me, lol) - just a group show that Jessica is having with her forum =)

LOL! I rather like the colour scheme, I'm fond on dull greens for some reason.

Above water scene during the actual fall of Atlantis please, please, please!!!!!!!!!!! So many people think that Atlantis was some underwater civilization where mermaids lived, Id really love to see you do the painting with some above water, maybe do like under and above water at the same time!!!

I didnt get my badger damnit!!!! :P

So you think! In my vision, Atlantis is an above ground post-apocalyptic urban metropolis populated ENTIRELY by badgers! ;P

Hehe, I do indeed, I'm just teasing ;)

Strangely enough, you might be seeing a badger from me sometime soon, I'm wanting to do some pieces based on the Wind and the Willows, and along with my namesake Mr. Toad, there is also Mr. Badger!

I did indeed choose to go with an "above water" idea of Atlantis! I'm working on a storm-coming-over-a-sunset/sunrise sky right now, but soon it will have an Atlantean sorceress and you'll be able to see the beginning of the destruction behind her, with waves crashing over a temple. Or something like that, lol, this is turning into a very ambitious undertaking.....

Wow Ill say it sounds like its going to be one incredible painting, from what I can see on the web cam it already looks like its going to be filled with lots of color and interesting stuff to look at. If it’s this huge, you might have to list this up in the ebay store for like a grand!!

I went to Hot Topic today to see if I could get one of those peppermint inspired stickers of yours. I don't know if they were out or if this Hot Topic is stupid, but they had absolutely nothing of yours. I would've asked the girl at the counter, but I didn't want to interupt her conversation on her cell phone >:/

Thats a great idea for the painting, show Atlantis in the process of being lost, usually its 'lost city of Atlantis' and you'd assume it'd be underwater but I never thought about it actually being lost in the first place lol. It sounds like a big painting!

Yay! I quite like deviantart, I've been a member for a while but I sometimes forget to update it, whoops! But I get my wallpapers for my computer from there and I LOVE some of the Emotive Portraits in the Photography section!
