OOOoooo! I love sky pictures! hehee and usually when it comes to photographs of clouds I'm a nut considering all the ones I've taken recently. ^^; This is really good DBA. Very nicely done indeed and can't wait to see the finished version!!!

aw farts you covered up the pretty skyness : (
davincipoppalag (Feb 26, 2004)
I like the idea of lightning..but I think there are too many branches.. it takes away from the beauty and drama of those incredible clouds...
DeadlyBlondeArcher (edited Feb 26, 2004)
Yeah, I thought the exact same thing after I submitted and looked at it. But I was looking at an actual photograph, and the real one has even more lightning branches. The clouds behind were sort of a figmentation of my imagination cuz I couldn't see them that well. At least I can still go back and look at v.2...Oh welll.. *long sigh*
staci (Feb 26, 2004)
you didnt use layers? if you did you could beg for more space and fix it
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Feb 26, 2004)
Yes, but I merged them, and don't they stay permanently merged? This just makes me sick... I was thinking if I could get some space & could get back in at the point where I posted on v.2, it would be soooo easy to fix this.

The silhouette of the closest bush against the orange could be a painting in itself.
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Feb 26, 2004)
I love you, Axil. :) One of my art teachers used to tell me I was the "overworking queen" of them all. Overwork everything, I do. Don't know how I got so carried away. I hate myself. Please, please, Marcello, read my memo and let me fix this baby!
davincipoppalag (Feb 26, 2004)
then after you fix have to do another of JUST the bush...
laurael (Feb 26, 2004)'s in showcase...the clouds and sun are awesome. I love the bush...uh, wait...that didn't sound right. The bush in your picture is fab...heheh...
Axil62 (Feb 26, 2004)
We should all do an honest depiction of our own genatalia....well, you guys should, not me.
laurael (edited Feb 26, 2004)
So is that another theme board suggestion? You first Ax...
oh wait...there are 'children' using this site that have access to the porn...
Axil62 (Feb 26, 2004)
hehe...hey, don't be surprised....
laurael (Feb 26, 2004)
Why am I 'not' surprised that I wouldn't be surprised...?
Axil62 (Feb 26, 2004)
Why am I surprised that you are not surprised that you wait...why are you wait that's not it...why is a surprise not like no no..ok wait....
laurael (Feb 26, 2004)
Hilarious Axil...funny man...
Gigandas (Feb 26, 2004)
Another Thomas Kinkade like drawing.That lightning would be cool to witness your own eyes...great job with that nice colored sky there^^.It's really interesting how you contrasted the sky colors though.If it were me, I wouldn't know where to begin.But you do a great job....not only here but all your drawings.Very very nice^^.
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Feb 26, 2004)
Okay, I got a couple of kb thingies to go in and friggin mess this thing ALL up. Going in now. If I don't make it back, was nice knowin' ya'll.

I took out as much lightning as I could - (Had I been able to take out most of it and get back the original clouds, I would have) I had to repaint the clouds because layers are gone in Lascaux after you submit. Doing this fix-it stuff was harder than all the rest of the drawing. I like this one better than the first finished version, but v.2 is still my favorite, that was a feeling - and I don't have it right now. Since this is what I intended for this one, I guess I'm okay with it. I did not touch the bush. :)

*gasp* that is just amazing!
marcello (Feb 27, 2004)
because layers are gone in Lascaux after you submit.
They're only gone because you merged them. =P If you hadn't, they'd still be there.
davincipoppalag (Feb 27, 2004)
Wow.. much better! this is wonderful! and Axil... I cannot participate in the "draw your own genitalia theme" ..I would have to ask for more space...(I wish).. lol
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Feb 27, 2004)
Oh. Thanks for the info, M. I thought it just automatically merged them when you submit finished. You boys are really trying to kill them theme board, huh? lol
method3 (Feb 27, 2004)
Hrm... well, I like version 2 better too. One reason is that the foreground is kinda flat with vague forms aside from the bushes. The main reason is obviously the lightning, which is understandably hard to do realistically, I just don't think it's quite there.
DeadlyBlondeArcher (edited Feb 27, 2004)
hmm. yep you're prolly right, but it's time to move on now, I don't have a feeling for this one anymore. OMG! I just looked at the foreground again, and method you are so right, I must have gotten so tired and wrapped up in the rest of it I forgot to finish it! There's supposed to be some silhouettes there, not jump outatcha ones, but I didn't friggin finish them. Oh well. :)
