EDM #11-Draw Your Glasses or Sunglasses

For this challenge I went ahead and drew my eye glasses. One, because I love them...Two, because I can't find my sunglasses :-).

I did these Saturday morning while visiting my mom. I wish I could have captured the way the light streaming through the window made the Burgundy plastic shine. I tried to add some color with my handy crayons...but that just smeared the pencil detail I had done. Once I took a picture of the page with my camera...(scanner not working, another lament) was so fuzzy and just didn't work. So I decided to add some ink. I'm still not real happy with it. Oh well, it's an experience...LOL

Art Supplies-Priceless!

 in the mists of poking fun at my supplies. Yet making a statement about the way us artists (I'm using the term "us" loosely ;-) get hung up on our supplies' brand/quality. I happened to, quite purposefully, get a plug in for my Yahoo group...Bad Spellers Anonomys . Yeah, that's it...
If your wondering what I am talking about....Look at the "Not Worrying About the Medium" again.
If you noticed, and didn't comment...Thank you!
If you didn't notice, then you are invited to join Bad Spellers Anonomys ...LOL!
It took my Mother-in-law to point it out. Thank you L.A.;-)

EDM Challenge #1-Draw a Shoe

My Beloved Ecco...

Well, I do have two of them actually :-).

I bought this pair of shoes when I was pregnant with my second son. My husband freaked when he found out how much money I spent on them. Rightfully so, they were $160. But they felt so good. The whole pregnancy, I didn't have any back pain. Which is saying something since I worked over 60 hours a week...on my feet.
Here it is almost seven years later, and I still wear them daily. Last year my husband bit his words when he bought a pair of his own. ;-).

EDM Challenge # 13-Draw Your Telephone

This is my little AudioVox phone through Virgin Mobile. It's not about the phone for me. It doesn't do anything special, like take pictures or play Mp3's. It is the basic cell phone for the "just in-case". It's a pay-as-you go...but if you ask me the best plan out there. We generally don't pay more than $20 every three months. Obviously, we don't use it that much. It's a way for the kid's schools to get ahold of us if we are out on errands. So it is :-)

EDM Challenge # 33: Draw an Eye

EDM Challenge # 33

I'm not exactly sure if this qualifies as being "drawn", but there is a lot of computer drawing to accomplish the final result. It was sooooo fun, too.
To see it in it's original size, and un-pixelated, double click and that will take you to the Flickr site.
Originally I did mine, and my friends liked it (on top)...So I created a glamor eye for each of them. Dave wanted a dragon eye, I think I accomplished it :-).
Goes to show us how unrealistic the images of models that we see are. Anyone, I mean anyone, can be "beautiful" with PhotoShop.
