Re: Expect the Unexpected

Heh Thx Guys,

It may be a couple of days before I have really have time to sit down and play with it more. Today I have to play dog whisperer. My sister, bless her soul ;) found a 6 year old yorkie on a country road here that had been abandoned and was still lactating. Very malnourished and front teeth worn down. The vet says she was abandoned because of her condition and theorized she had been in a puppy mill. My sister couldn't keep her but fed her up and foisted her on me :shock: The thing is I have a year and half old puppy who weighs 50 pounds and Loves to play. He is half rottweiler, quarter german shepard and quarter "Who Knows". He is a very sweet dog but rough. I have training to do today to keep the little yorkie from tearing his throat out :D She is actually a very well dispositioned little dog but she has a mean growl when he comes to close :lol:

Re: Expect the Unexpected

I'm sure they'll figure out the ranks, hehe... with dogs sometimes size doesn't matter all that much. :mrgreen:
Very sweet that you do that, though! We have 5 stray cats...4 of them are mother and kittens from a span of 3 years, haha, but now we got her sterilized and her oldest daughter. The 5th we found in a parking lot...but let's not corrupt your beautiful thread, hahaha! :lol: :P
Here to help! :D

Re: Expect the Unexpected

Ah good luck Tartan! It's already nice of you to agree and take care of that dog. Best luck with the training, I'm sure it will go just fine!

Re: Expect the Unexpected

It seems to be working. She is a laid back little dog but can be feisty with the young dog when she needs to. It's hilarious :D I want a kitty too ;) Started to get a little frustrated with Cass's nose and did this. I will try and get back on track after breakfast. I also added an extrapolation of the abstract. It's a great learning experience! No worries about corrupting this thread :lol:

The henchman looked at the Professor from a safe spot on the Hammer and well away from Cass, while they waited on her final transformation, " So tell me Professor. What does she really look like?"

The Professor turned a haunted gaze back at the henchman, " She is close to what she Should look like, Hench. But I can tell you, I have had nightmares..." The professor shivered and turned away.

Re: Expect the Unexpected

Re: Expect the Unexpected

Thank you Borhani, Abstract symmetry has been a favorite of mine for years. But I am about to break out of the mold so to speak. So far I have been using symmetry to give me an anchor to learn by before I cut the anchor loose :D It felt good doing the abstracts and freed me somewhat.

Sidetrip to the Mountains

I had to take a quick side trip away from that last project and will return to it when I have learned more. Instead I wanted to play around with landscapes. Never did this before, not this way anyhow and results were interesting enough to post screenshots so you can see the process I went through. Number 8 brush rocks!!! Lots of layers to this, in some cases enough smudge to create almost transparent looks. Lotsa white lol. I started with the brown layer and increased the bump all the way and started streaking the canvas with the default color until I had played enough that I could see a mountain range hidden in the brown. From there I started adding layers with different opacities. The blue gray I used on the sky was important and I pulled it down along the top and started adding detail. No I am not completely done but Very fun and worthwhile. Next project! :D

Sidetrip

Thanks Borhani. It is 2:21 AM where I am at and rain woke me up. I was going to leave this unfinished but did a little touch up. I almost want to throw in another layer but I will resist that temptation. This is the final in it's original resolution. :D
