I find this thread really funny... it's like looking at lost puppies in the pound... poor little abandoned
Anyways, I have some too

This is a a project that I still love the concept of. The theme was space, time, and matter. I was thinking it would be a triptic with 3 symbolic figures in each. Space: length, width, depth, Time: past, present, future and Matter: solid, liquid, gas. This one was Matter. I will still probably due something similar one of these days, it just won't be this image. I abandoned it when I had worked on it many many many hours, didn't save it *hits head on table* and then my computer crashed and I lost all that work.

This is one of the first things that I did when I got my tablet a year a go. I was working with a tiny brush and it was taking forever, and so I just set it aside... had every intention of going back to it... oh, and it's a portrait of my brother ...or should I say, 1/2 a brother lol

Rustbucket: Your pieces, especially the last one, are gorgeous!


I have far, far more scrapped pieces than finished ones... *tear*

This is a piece I worked on I think aound last January-February... i think. I was pretty damned proud of it too, I may finish it someday.

This is also a piece from around that time. The large ugly looking lines are from the original thumbnail sketch. I have a layer of super thin detail lines over it that are nearly invisible in this size.

This piece... I can't even remember when I started it. I still like it though and I may finish it sometime far in the future. Maybe...

This is my entry for Spectacular 2D. I had so much inspiration for it. I think I messed up the composition though. I really really want to finish it but every time I open up the file I just sigh. I think it also has to do with the fact that it's in 500 dpi at 8000 by 6400 pixels so working on it also means quite a bit of lag. I wanted my contest piece to be highly detailed and in great quality, but I may just bring it down to 400 dpi or something. Meh. *frustrated*


This is a piece I did with the intention of practicing hair techniques with the advice from Linda Bergkvist's hair tutorial... but somewhere along I just stopped and got distracted again... Meh.

I really love the eyes and lips I painted on this piece. I was practiving a new technique that i believe is not working out all that well but I seem to be stuck with it. I also realized that the lips were to low on the face to I used free transform to move them. Hence the large purplish gap. Woot... Meh. I also have a lot of trouble with necks.

This is a painting I was working on because I was inspired by a photograph. I don't quite know why I stopped but I did. Wee.

This is probably my most recent painting. It is based off of a dress design I did inspired by Valentino (I love that designer, as well as Versaci, Gucci, BCBG, many, many more). I love this piece. I hope to finish it eventually. I think I scrapped it to do a doodle that turned out quite awful. I think I am going to try to finish my Spectacular 2D piece before I try anything else.

Closeup of the face:

This is a piece I did based off of an ad for Guess (I like their designs). I loved the feel of the actuall photograph but I am pretty sure I messed up the painting pretty bad. Oh well.

Abandoned Work

Lol, i have almost never finished a work, i know that sucks, but i am too perfectionist!! Its like a curse, when im almost finishing a work im never happy, and i forget about it.

Here's some work that's not quite finished, and it'll probably stay that way...
