EMG Sketch Fest

Ellen Million, in emglivejournal , is hosting a sketchfest today. People can leave prompts and artists are sketching.

Including me! If you're willing to call it a sketch if it's painted.

Anyway, the rules for artists are no more than an hour per piece, in whatever media you want to work in. http://community.livejournal.com/emglivejournal/1793.html

The rules for other people are simpler -- you can leave prompts if you want; many of the artists are selling the sketches or taking donations to finish sketches.  You can also just go check out some cool artists!

Anyway, here's my first hour of work, at about the half hour mark and now:



Comments are welcome, and the finished piece will be for sale.  I'm going back to sketching now, rather than fiddling with pasting a paypal button in here.  But if you're interested in a print or the original, leave a comment and I'll get back to you.

Possibly. That's up to you.

One of the things I liked about the first picture was that on the dragon body, there was white from the page mixed up with the purple of the body. It seemed to make it more one, like the dragon and "white" were part of each other. On the second picture, you have painted the background black (sky) and the dragon body is seperate instead of part of. I really liked the effect in the first pictured of the sky and dragon being part of each other.

I do think the second picture is awesome. There was just that one feature of the first that I really liked.

And the wings were more blended with the body because the white connected it all. In the second picture it seems like maybe they are not wings but waves of some sort.

While it is certainly true that whether the painting is finished is up to me, your opinion is not.

Interesting comment! Thank you. I'll think about it for a while.

Gorgeous and especially since you only had an hour to do it!

Thanks! I admit to being careful what subjects to attempt in a one-hour time-slot.
