Monday Photo Shoot
Well, Mr Scalzi's Monday Photo Shoot is to show your creative side.
This week for the Photo Shoot, it's time to show off!
Your Monday Photo Shoot: Take a picture of something you've made. Pottery, cookies, a drawing or painting, a poem or a pipe cleaner stick man -- it's all good, it just has to have been made by you. Show off your creativity.
I can't say i've done a whole lot of creative things of late, but I'll put up some attempts I made about 3 yrs ago at "computer art". I attempted the drawings for a story I've written, which anyone who's been to my journal for any time knows is called Kesterwood Forest.
I was on a roll when I played around in Paint Shop Pro and PhotoImpact when I made these. If I tried to match them now I wouldn't have the slightest idea how I did them! I think the old adige is: "use it or loose it". For those who's minds didn't rush right to the gutter I was talking about how I made the pictures!
This first drawing is of Abbercorn... a main character in the book. Abbercorn's "persona" is that of a kind and gentle being. A father figure, mentor and much more. I hope I captured that in this drawing. He comes from a world I wish I could be in.
This second is of Lilith, probably the "main character". I gave her many of my own feelings so that I was sure I could write her reactions to any given situation as real as if it were myself. She came from living on the streets, and found herself at Abbercorn's doorstep.
Meet Travis. Another person trying to overcome his feelings. He is stronger then even he knows.
This is Hetford. The "wolf man" as he's called. Raised in the woods by.. you guessed it!.. wolves. Befriended by Abbercorn, he has learned to deal with humans, but always favors his wolf pack.
B'Lena is a woman living on an island in the swamps. A person, once of a good heart and gentle being, she is shunned and thought of as a witch.
Lastly, (but not the last of my characters) there is Firestorm. A dragon (duh). A very old dragon living well beyond his years.
I hope the drawings fit the characters. I'm no artist, and know they could be done better, but hey.. this is MY version! lol
