My entry to the LBP2 contest. I love Little Big Planet! Does anyone out there have this game?
I checked out all the stock items they gave you, and thought it'd be fun if they had a level that kind of existed outside the main ones...where you were in your home pod, defending it and rescuing the poor lost bots and shooting evil ones
PLEASE check out my husband's ( the co-creator of the comic) entry here:
If you like it, please favourite it! I LOVE his idea of the Grimm Brothers!
Okay, so here's the story . . . %100000 TRUE BY THE WAY
'Once when I was younger, probably around seven or eight years old, I was spending the night at my grandmothers house with some of my older cousins. My grandmother, who loves to shop at thrift stores and antique shops, had happened to have picked up a new mirror for her bathroom that day. It was a beautiful mirror. Really! It had a golden border with a fancy design at the top. Definitely a good buy on her part. Or so we thought.
My older cousin, Cynthia-Dale, had heard of some new scary game that everybody at her school was playing. I wish that i remembered the exact words now, but I'm also happy to have forgotten them. The game was very similar to 'Bloody Mary'. We lit two candles, shut off all of the lights in the house, and read this poem three times. and we waited.
At first . . . nothing.
But a few seconds later (and till this day i don't know if it was just an amazing prank played on me by my cousins) i saw her! A ghostly pale woman reaching from the mirror. she had pure white eyes, raven-black hair, and a necklace covered with tiny eyes.
In shock, I ran out of that bathroom faster than I'd ever run in my entire life.
I will never for get that night.
Needless to say, i was not sad when that mirror mysteriously broke a few weeks later '
This is my attempt at recreating that moment. I still don't even like thinking about that freaking mirror -__- sheeesh
So this is my creature for the 9 beast creation contest and whatnot. (: you had to make a mechanical looking creature with found objects in basically any medium. I made a sculpture cuz I had a bunch of weird stuff lying aroung; why draw it when I can just make it?
anyway, he's made with: part of a pigeon skeleton, keys, a watch, gears, a ring, a bead, an old toy I cut up, copper wire, gauze, sculpy, a gold chain, and a teeny tiny violin.
seems like everyone has a cool story for theirs. I didn't really think that far lol. sorry everyone ): maybe he'll show up later in my art...
I think that's it. It's all held together with the wire and glue.
Another figure painting from Angel Academy, done from life. In the class of "Maestro", we use a different style/method pretty much everytime time, and I love it.
Size is about 110x60 cm. Took several days to paint. I used Winsor&Newton oil paints, and some by Old Holland.
I can't believe it! Just came back home from Italy to my parents' place in Germany, and there is my mom baking cookies! Berliner Brot, something between a biscotti and a brownie, and they're quite good. Even more so because she rarely ever bakes. Ah, the wonderful Christmastime!
