More than one picture!  
Let's get the nerdy stuff out of the way - more Elphaba.

"AW MAN I AM GREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN."


I watched some rhythmic gymnastics yesterday, and thought it was actually pretty awesome, especially the hoop.



I am actually pretty proud of these.  Intense poses and perspective are my mortal enemies, but I think these turned out okay.  (I used a reference for the first one but not the second, so if her foot is backwards, that's why.)

And finally, I know this is neither gross nor a bird, but I am SERIOUSLY PROUD OF THIS and it took me like THREE HOURS because I am a MORON WHO DOES NOT KNOW HOW BIG PHOTOS ARE:


I am also proud of my photo printer for not being a bitch.

FOUR DOODLES MY BAD.

This was sitting out when we took the KGU kids through our apartment.  One of the guys was really freaked out.  >_>

OOH OOH I AM SO JEALOUS OF YOUR ... BIG ... PICTURE... THING. I really want to do that with like, 12 of my different prints. I should totally get on that, since I have a photography showing in December. :\\\

Elphaba... how on earth do you pronounce that? She is AWESOME. I love her response and her pose is like, perfect. I mean, it's an easy pose to make cardboard (see every single one of my human drawings) but it's really fluid and natural looking. I also love the colouring job you did, even the smoke (?) at the bottom.

Aaand gymnasts! Oh man, have you ever tried to play with a ... what's it called. Streamer? THEY SUCK SO HARD. I know JB doesn't really talk about Colour Guard, but we had streamers for awhile and it pretty much ended up with us being completely tangled up in them and falling over, it sucked sooo hard. Buut your gymnasts are pretty too! Curvy and fluidly moving.

I don't know what to say about the claw drawing. It's pretty rad, though. It's the sort of drawing I would do and then my Mom would find it and freak out. "WHY CAN'T YOU DRAW NICE THINGS"

Kevin actually found the frame while he was cleaning out dorms, which was pretty awesome. FREE STUFF. It would have been fun to make if I hadn't measured out 3x5s instead of 3.5x5s and spent ten minutes trying to figure out why it didn't fit.

It's pronounced EL-fa-ba. The author made it out of L. Frank Baum's initials, and it happened to be the same pattern as DO-ro-thy. /nerd. I'm glad you like it! I spent forever on her hands/nose and changed her hair at the last minute, and I think it turned out pretty cool.

LOL I wanted to do ribbon SO BAD when I was little. The announcer guy said they're like 19 feet long? Yeesh. I DID NOT KNOW YOU WERE IN COLOR GUARD TOO.

You can blame the claw girl on Jessica, because she is always drawing monsters. IT IS ALL HER FAULT.

That is amaaaazing. FREE STUFF IS AWESOME. Hhaaha, that's probably why it was abandoned in the first place.

Ooh, I love nerdy crap like that. Like, L. Frank Baum got the name for OZ from an "O-Z" filing cabinet, and the jacket that the wizard wears in the movie actually belonged to L. Frank Baum... crazy stuff!

Ribbon issss SOO FREAKIN HARD. IT IS RIDICULOUS. I WAS TOTALLY IN COLOUR GUARD TOO. I WAS CO CAPTAIN WITH JESSICA FOR A YEAR AND A HALF. IT IS ALSO WHY I HATED HER FOR NINE MONTHS, IRONICALLY.

Lmaaao. Jessica has this magic ability to make us all want to draw strangely awesome things. Tee hee!

SERIOUSLY I was all excited until I saw it was 3.5x5, and then I was ONLY SLIGHTLY LESS EXCITED.

Ha! That jacket thing is cool. I haven't seen that movie in years.

HA CO CAPTAIN. THAT IS PRETTY HILARIOUS. I THOUGHT YOU HATED HER BECAUSE OF TAYLOR BUT I GUESS IN HIGH SCHOOL THERE ARE JUST LOTS OF COMPLEX THINGS LIKE THAT.
The Loch Ness Monsterinkytwist on August 26th, 2008 04:14 am (UTC)
YES WELL, TAYLOR TOO. BUT ALSO SHE ABAAAAANDONED ME FOR THE BOY I WANTED.

ALSO: SHE WAS LEONARDO. I WAS RAPHAEL.

O I SEE.

SOMEHOW THAT LAST BIT ACTUALLY EXPLAINS EVERYTHING, WHICH IS SORT OF BIZARRE.

JESSICA AND I FIGURED THIS OUT THE LAST TIME WE WATCHED TMNT. IT WAS, AN ILLUMINATING MOMENT, TO SAY THE LEAST.

HOLY SHIT TRU FAX. IT'S ALRIGHT TO CRY BRITTNEY.

Holy WOW. You just did some mondo-ly complicated poses there, and they all turned out GREAT! That is a super impressive post Laura! Kudos, man. *had to scroll back up to look at sexy coloring job on Elphaba again*. DAYUM.

Also: Picture/window/sunset thing is absolutely beautiful. That is a fantastic concept!
