My grandmother is a 15 year survivor of breast cancer. Jen has beaten it twice now. If awareness spreads, more ladies would know to check themselves and get themselves checked as often as necessary. There could be more survivor stories.
Ok, another stamp. My animation works so much smoother with less transparency. This took me much longer than I thought it would. I started it, thinking "A quick entry to help `JunkbyJen surpass her entry total from last year, no biggie!" But, as I started working on it, I realized it wasn't going to be that easy. I just kept thinking of little things to tweak it. From the awkward Hope to the tiny ribbons in the corners. I am really happy with how this turned out.
If you fav/comment on this deviation, please do the same on `Synfull's half here.
`Synfull and I have been meaning to collab again for months now but we never got around to it, so we decided that ^krissi001's contest was good motivation to actually get off our behinds and get to work.
The theme we decided on is communications through the ages. The past frame is Syn writing Peeny a letter, the present frame is Syn and Peeny talking over the computer, and the future frame is Peeny talking to a holographic Syn.
`Synfull did the past frame, we split the present frame, and I did the future frame. Peeny's walls/floor (the left side of the present frame) was pixeled by `Synfull; Syn's walls/floor (the right side of the present frame) was pixeled by me. Peeny himself, his laptop, the flower, and the left side of the window was pixeled by me; Syn, his laptop, his spider plant, Robobuddy, and the right side of the window was pixeled by `Synfull.
This was really fun to make. I really liked pixeling the little alien dog and it led to so many giggles (ask `Synfull and =Kyramy, I almost died from laughter quite a few times while making this). I hope we do this again soon.
I've always been really proud of the 2008 portrait, as it was the first proper portrait I ever drew. Since then, I've only really practiced portraiture in the past year or so, and I've moved from graphite to Photoshop .
Nice to think I've improved even a little - but there's still so far to go!
NB: This is a reproduction of a promotional poster for The Dark Knight. I do not own the image or character portrayed.
And a note to the heads of the competition: I understand that this will probably be pulled cause it's a promo image, but it was my first portrait so I just wanted to see how I'd improved since my first.
