Result = swell

Nice happy with that.

My boot pics were chosen to represent the shoe group!

Now this is an honour.

There is a classy group on Redbubble dedicated to artwork and phtotographs depicting shoes.

I submitted my boots like thus

and hey look there they are!

Quite quite proud .. by the way there are some fab pics of shoes in the group and all the art can be purchased at reasonable prices.

If you are an artist redbubble is a great way to begin selling and promoting your work

Get creative on

Added some more works to redbubble

Actually I have quite a bit of good news regarding my redbubble account. Well maybe I have a bit of bragging to do! I'll try and do that later today. It's a bit early in the day for boasting. (Not a theoretical too early in the day - I mean its not much after dawn and besides I could do with going to sleep before i get up again.

I started some modeling yesterday

I haven't pushed this side of the 3d art experience yet!

Last night however I modeled a glass and a spiral and then made a pic. Not especially challenging -- bit It was done and it is a start.

The pic came my way at 4.30am looking like this. Pleased with that but I decided while walking the dog that I needed to actually add to that as an artistic picture and today I'm going to be looking at 2 eyeballs on a cocktail stick and some fingerprints with blood!

Why not!

The twee is not on me today - I must have lost it whole out shopping in Middlesbrough with Blurt yesterday.

We had a spring Fling over at Vue 6 Group

In the Vue 6 a new Dawn group at Artzone we were required to illustrate some Spring quotes.

I chose
Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!" ~Robin Williams

and you can view the completed work here -


In the spring,at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt. ~Margaret Atwood...

you can view that one here

When put these together we had no real spring feeling here in Northern England - however it's really kicking in now and spring has sprung.

I won some contests

A few weeks ago I posted that I was waiting for results to come in for some competitions I had entered - but I never posted the results.

There was 3 I was waiting on

1. Carrara Dynamic Hair competiton - well I didn't manage to get anywhere on that bit I did learn lota nad now I use Carrara lots and lots -- so it was a bit like winning a new software package.

2 shots of the entry I posted are here

and here
These did not get into the final 8 which I think should be getting the results now (ish) the results keep getting delayed its all a bit dazsoon to quote a clever comic writer.

Speaking of comics

I did win the Sunday Funnies

These can be read here

And the other result I was waiting for was for the april fool promotion problem contest.

My entry was like this

I posted it in the blog like this.

Maybe it was the fact that I added a touch of underarm hair!

So -- yeah pleased to be winning it felt good.

Just completed 2 entries for a Spring Frolic with the Vue 6 a new Dawn at Artzone -- I'll put them up later and explain a bit more about that.

But the judges have been called in.

And I am also working on some Dragonworld pics for another contest at Artzone.

It would seem that I am a bad friend and a bad blogger

I'll beat myself up about this for five minutes and then get on and do something about it.

I need an extra 8 hours in every day or I need to quit my job -- but as watching my family go hungry is not in the list of things I want to get done then I guess I need to stick it out and show up and get paid.

Anyway I have been neglecting my blog so I best get on and update.

I have been neglecting my online friends - facebook, artzone, ecademy etc etc.

But Hey -- I have made some pretty pics and have even got some done up super big and can now be purchased from redbubble.

I need to get some more up there.

But it is developing so at least that is something to be proud of.
