Halo 4: Myxie Invasion

Good Day Folks!

So last week I was watching my boyfriend kill stuff with a gun bigger than the screen...I should specify this was on the x-box, sos not to alarm anyone. :) As I watched the pixilated aliens run for their lives I thought...I should make some Myxies. I assure you it was the colors that made me think of Myxies and not the violence.
Anyhoo to get to my point of this story...I have brand NEW MYXIES up on Etsy! Oh Boy!
So Please check them out.

Tootles,

This Procrastinator hates to wait.

Hello Art Friends.

So I set myself a few goals for this year. Organize my bills, Clear out my storage room, and submit my art to Spectrum…well at least I got one of those done. No, I didn’t tackle the storage room, I’m scared to go in there!
I submitted a picture to Spectrum. Spectrum is an annual art book that show cases contemporary artists. http://www.spectrumfantasticart.com/books.php?id=567
I try to get one every year. I love being able to see so many different artists in one place…also it’s a picture book, no reading involved…gotta love that :)
This is the picture I submitted, it is one of my newest drawings. It was done with pencil and ink and then scanned and colored in Photoshop. I call it Yo-yo Tricks.

The deadline is today, I mailed my picture in last week…normally I’m a major procrastinator but this is important to me so I got on it early, well earlyish. I’m so excited to see if I got in, unfortunately I won’t know for a few months. So I will have to play the waiting game, CURSE YOU waiting game! But I will make sure to let you all know as soon as I do. Wish me luck.

Have a Great Day!

My Inspiration

I never really knew how much I would enjoy sculpting until about two years ago when I created the Myxies. I have always appreciated sculptors and their work but never considered myself one. Before I got started sculpting I often surfed the web for different artists. I gathered ideas on materials and techniques from them and along with watching “How to” videos on youtube I was encouraged to create my own.

These are a few amazing artists that inspired my sculptures.

http://www.goddess-dreams.com/sold.html Aidamaris Roman’s sculptures are so realistic, from the glass eyes to the fingernails, she is a very gifted artist.

http://pixiwillow.com/faerie_gallery.htm Michelle Bradshaw is incredible, so much detail in such little figures.

http://www.eirewolfcreations.com/ Erin Metcalf, her art is adorable, colorful and her creations are some of the most imaginative I have ever seen.

http://www.gossamerglen.com/gossamer%20glen/faeriecollection.htm Marchella has inspired my Myxies the most, her fairy tale, cartoonish creations are similar to what I was striving for with my own.

http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/hoax/weblog/permalink/huge_sculptures/ Ron Mueck, his HUGE sculptures are incredibly detailed and beautiful.

http://data.fineartstudioonline.com/dataviewer.asp?keyvalue=8165&page=Works Willy Whitten not only is a friend of mine but helped create some of films most memorable creations, like in The Thing and Aliens.

I hope these links can help any future sculptors find their inspiration the way they helped me.
