Thinking in public about anything that matters.

My Pictures, Your Stories 2

Here are more pictures for the storytelling game. Here are the instructions from the first set:

From time to time I will postillustrations that I’ve created through my 3-D art programs, and anyone who wants to can write a short story inspired by that image. It can be just a few words, such as “I think this is a picture of…” or it can be a full story up to, roughly, 1000 words.

OR, you can play a game with other participants by writing an unfinished story and letting someone else finish it. Or several peoplecan add bits until somebody finishes it.

Alternatively, you could write a poem inspired by the picture.

Just post your story or poem in the comment section for this blog entry.

My Picures, Your Stories!

Here’s a little fun for those of you, children or adults, who like to make up stories.

Busy,busy,busy!

There are so many interesting things to blog about and so little time. Especially now that I’m using most of my time to create digital art for Prodos’ and my projects.

I’ve now been production assistant for 3 Prodos Worldwide shows, two with Gerry Jackson on labor market issues, which is going to be a weekly event, and one with Dr. Anna Blainey,who discussed twodifferent philosophical strands, historically,of the feminist movement.

For the last couple of days I’ve been working on tee shirt art for the Sydney Kendall section that will soon be in the iLoveProdos.com webstore. Right now I’m concentrating on making cat art for the shirts. Want a sample?

This is from an e-card I made as a thank you to friends:

Circle of Friends

It will now be on tee shirts that you can give to friends, or wear in order to imply that you have friends, or that you like cats, or oriental carpets.

The cats, carpet, and floor are models I bought from DAZ, a 3-D model store.I posed the cats and arranged the elements of the scene. It’s not as impressive a job as if I drew all the art myself, but it’s faster, once you’ve learned how to manage the 3-D system, which has it’s own difficulties and quirks.

Someday when I have time I’ll post more aboutmy progress in learning to create 3-D art. Pretty soon I hope to be learning 3-d modelling as well.

Cheers!

Learning 3-D Art

My husband, Prodos, is creating a hilarious, astonishing fairytale based on a few characters I drew for one of his websites. That was a few years ago, before we ever knew we would fall in love.

The original plan, once my drawings inspired Prodos to make a story out of them, was for Prodos to write the story and for me to illustrate it. It was during this project that we fell in love with each other.

But once I came to live with Prodos, we decided to combine our talents to create a storytelling show, with pictures and songs and the two of us performing it , before we try to make it into a book (or several books). The story has now grown into so many episodes (which are both self-contained stories and part of a story arc), with so many characters and events, that it could easily become a TV series or a series of movies, not to mention the illustrated book.

But we want illustrations – many illustrations – of the characters and main events. For the book. For the show. But I was having trouble drawing the same character in different poses and perspectives, without a visual reference. So Prodos took a look around the ‘net and found Continue reading
