I just want to reply to some of the posts which have kept my thread alive while i’ve been ‘slacking’ (although it’s because i’ve been a very busy boy!)
2xbo: Cheers! Sorry it’s been a while… i’m gonna finish this challenge thoguh so there’ll be lots of updates over the next few weeks.
authentic: Thanks Vincent… yup, i like the ‘words’ version too. It won’t be part of my final image because i don’t think that’d suit the brief, but i may well consider a sequrential set of images along this theme that’ll incorporate text.
AndyH: More clowns on the way!! More colour and spectacularlynussness!! (and i need to pop by and say hello to your crazy grannies!)
MrFreeman: Glad you liked the clown image… the final composition is a bit ‘busier’!! But it will ahve a background… although not particularly ‘wacky’. More ‘Mundane’. ‘Dull’. ‘Drab’. And btw… we get free spring water in Buxton!! There’s a fancy tiled spring in the town centre which has a constant flow of the proper spring water and people come from miles around to fill car loads of bottles. 1000 years old and from deep in the limestone that buxton is perched on!
Madlight_1988: Thanks! I’m gonna try and stick with the general style, but i think it’ll be wholly painted, without the linework.
OrO: I have done, but there’ll be my Line Art and more interested stuff with colour (ooOOoH!) coming by the end of the week.
beelow: Sorry for being so quiet, but ‘real’ wotk takes priority and i’ve had no time to work on this… or even browse the forum properly… i’m determined to get this one finished!!
Dutchman: Thanks Gijs! I’m chuffed you like it that much! Keep looking in…
Sergey Banityuk: As i said to madlight, i’m going for a more ‘painterly’ approach with the finished image, although the the charcaters will have a very similar look and feel to the clown image. I’m glad you like it so far.
the1st_angel: haha… i did mean ‘girlfriend’ in the singular. I don’t think i could handle more than one… although i can’t say i haven’t thought about it now and again…
NinjaASSN: 11 mice!! I don’t want that many… my girlfriend is still driving round the country with our baby because she doesn’t want to sleep in a house with mice!! I was very reluctant to kill the mice, but i need my ladies back!!
mybutterflyiris: Damn those pesky mice!! I’ve caught four so far… but i think there’s another couple hiding in the floor!! I couldn’t cope with rats!? I think a cat’s a great idea, but i was always so sad when our cats killed birds and bunny rabbits when i was a kid… I think cats just get to a stage in life where an inherent laziness overtakes the instinct to kill kill kill. And they just sit around the house either being incredibly affectionate or incredibly grumpy… or to a combination of both at random intervals.
Elsie: Thanks! Maybe your telekenetic powers are what jolted me into action. Not bad coming all the way from Glasgow!! Could it be something to do with the ‘possibly evil’…?
More to come… this week… and i’m gonna find some time to browse a bit and see what other peeps are doing…
