You wanted an update here you go!  
I took a class called color and design these are my big projects from it. It was all on color theory and required us to use cold press illustration board and artist quality goache. Which basically translates to cost me 400 dollars. So enjoy. The pics aren't the best quality but my camera is from 2nd year of high school so give it a break. First assignment was from between midterm and begging of the year. Not sure why but we always get a big assignment around that time at this school. This is a portrait of the chinese actress Fan Bing Bing my favorite chinese actress. The assignment was to make a portrait using only two complementary colors, and black and white. I used yellow green and red violet. 17 hours total time spent painting. BingBingFull BingBingCloseUpThis assignment is our miderm. We could do anything we wanted as long as it invoked a mood. I love geisha's so I made this design. We also had to do analogous(sp?) colors so I used blue through violet. 16 hours total time spent painting. C&DMidtermFull C&DMidtermCloseUpTop

So if my lazy ass can do it so can you!

Change the post from "Rich text" to "source/html" mode.

Also use an lj cut! After the first image insert

Nikki! Brittney's right: If you move just to the right of the subject line you can switch from rich text. If you want to do a cut, highlight all the stuff you want under the cut and then click the button right before the calendar looking one (it looks like lines with an ECG underneath...) I had a similarly rocky transition from dj ;)

*super excited for your massive amount of pictures*

Still not working. I changed it to html. And I have't the slightest clue what a live journal cut is. Clearly my training in web design and computer science has not prepared me for the subtle nuances of online communities.

Warning: this comment has huge images
hahaha, you should complain to your superiors

Alrighty, I tried it on my account and got it to work, so I took some screencaps to make sure we are on the same page. Copy the post you have here, and stick it in the html tab of the update page.


As soon as it is in here, switch back to rich text and it should appear like the post will. To to a lj cut, select everything you want under the cut. When it is highlighted, click the lj cut icon.


When you do this, it will prompt you to give the section under the cut some sort of label. Write whatever you want here. It will then appear all pretty and cut on the update page, like Laura has here:


Hope that helps!

(PS- highly approve of the music choice)

Oooh omg those are GORGEOUS, Nikki! :D I love all of them. The first painting using purple and green is stunning!

I also love the geisha design, that's your own design? GORGEOUS. I haven't seen any of your art in so long, I'm loving seeing your work.

And the mandala is super cool. Was the assignment to use the horoscope signs, or was that your own personal flava?

Ty for all the nice comments guys. It's surprising how much work you can get done in 16 hours with no breaks but the bathroom. Glad you guys liked it. That class ate my soul. And it was any mandala we wanted I just felt like designing zodiac symbols.

Jeeze man, only 16 hours? I could NOT have done that level of detail that quickly. Seriously hot.

These are all dauntingly impressive. One hell of a first post lady.
