Challenge Over – Scottie Wins!

Standard

The game is over – boy it was a hard one. Some wonderful ideas, and no duplicates, which proves how creative you all are. 

Linda from ColoradoFarmLife came close, but Scottie from ScottiesToyBox got it correct after reading her guesses, which proves how clever he is!

The pictures are of road dirt or mud on one of the white work vans. I thought it looked rather beautiful and strange. Then I realised that you really couldn’t tell what it was unless you knew, and took the second picture with a bit of tire showing to make it easier. 



I must give credit to my hubby, who took one look and got it right instantly. He then tried to guess the make and model of van (which I at first thought he got wrong), and he got that right, too. Which proves we definitely belong together!

Scottie seems to have played along for the fun of it, but I did offer a prize, such as it is. My ulterior motive is to get myself back drawing, so I offered a digital drawing of whatever the winner wants. I won’t say that I’m terribly talented and there are a lot of things I probably can’t draw.

So, Scottie – please have a look at these old links to past posts, to get an idea of what I can and can’t do – then email me a photo to work from!

Alaska Lady

Rua

Oh Balls

Lokii At Night

Button

Usyaka

Border Collie

Poulnabrone

Red Dog

Penguin and Stegosaurus

Clyde (with original photo, and not my best effort. He was HARD) 

Ivy & Stewie (my favourite)
There are more, but I’m getting bored with links. If you want to waste a lot of time, go to my main page and scroll down to Catergories, Brushes.

Hope to take another mystery shot soon so we can play again!

A Challenge! What is This v.2

Standard

This picture might help figure it out. I waited until after Monday as some people only read blogs in digest form, once a week. No new takers, so here we go.


Let me know, if you do guess – would you like a digital drawing? 

A Challenge! What is This?

Standard

I took this picture at work Monday.


Can you guess what it is? If no one guesses, I have one more picture with a bit of a hint in it. No hints from me, this post!

I wish I had something to offer as a prize, as I know this is a hard one. Maybe a Brushes drawing of a photo you want rendered into amateur digital art?

Goodbye, Rua

Standard

My sister’s greyhound, Rua, passed away in his sleep last night. He was a big clumsy goofball, and he will be missed.

I drew this of him back in November 2011, one of my first attempts at digital art.

 

Miss you, big guy! 

New…Art?

Standard

It’s been yonks since I did anything creative.

Oh: yonks is Irish slang around here for ‘a long time, probably too long.’

Recently – okay a month ago, or longer – I had the time, and the iPad, and a strange enviro men in which to play. Probably about 15 minutes.

I need to play more often, I miss it.

Cartoon Craziness Challenge – a Thing, redux

Standard

I’m cheating again. I actually do have an idea for a mythical being, based off the comments on my last blog post, but I’d have to be a hell of a lot drunker than I am now. SuperVagina – yeah, you’d have to be wasted to draw that!

I know, I know, it’s Friday and I should be celebrating it! But I’m just too exhausted. So – cheater’s version of the Challenge!

Here’s a Thing I drew a while back, instead of SuperV.

The Only Superhero for Me! Cartoon Craziness Challenge

Standard

When I heard this week’s Cartoon Craziness Challenge was ‘superhero’, I didn’t have one minute of hesitation. I actually know a superhero!

My daddy!

Today is his 75th birthday, and he seems the same to me as he he was in his 50’s. Still has all his hair, and his all original parts, and best of all he still has his silly sense of humour. This cartoon is drawn from my favourite photo of him, taken by my hubby when Dad was over to visit us. I forget why he turned his cap backward and struck a gangsta pose – maybe some rap/hip-hop music was playing in the pub we were in? Still, you haveta love someone who is willing to be goofy a) in public b) in their 70’s c) in a foreign country surrounded by strangers.

Of course he’s super for a lot more reasons – but if I get all gooshy here, he will tease me unmercifully!

Love you dad and thank you for everything you have done for your family over the years. Wish I could give you a big hug today!

Cartoon Craziness Challenge – Self Portrait with Spots

Standard

My contribution to the Cartoon Craziness Challenge – this week’s theme is a self portrait. I wouldn’t be me if I wasn’t making fun of myself, so the original post is about talking in my sleep, Lokii being evil, and finally my getting yet another zit, or spot, at the age of 40. Yes I’m fucking well older than that now and I still get them, so I repeat: what the hell?
Anyhoo, I’ve re-read it, and it’s kinda funny so please do have a look!

So I’m kinda cheating on the challenge, as I already had this drawn years ago. Tough noogies.

Moi, for real (I drew my features from a photo) with a Giant Irish Talking Spot/Zit from Hell.

Cat inna Hat Challenge!

Standard

Ah, I don’t normally do these, but I felt the immediate need to draw a cat in a hat when I saw The Indecisive Eejit’s challenge.

Yah, it’s rubbish but I enjoyed the 10 minutes it took to do it – I use the Brushes app and it is ‘fingerpainting’ on an iPad. I can do much better work, I promise – my favourite being Ivy and Stewie. Please, have a look – I promise I’m not usually so… quick?
