I went into 2007 with a commission list a mile long, and spent most of the year worrying about it. When I looked my art memories to do this review, I was staggered and ashamed at how little art I managed to do this year! Then I realised I had neglected to put a lot of art into my memory file. ;~P As it turns out, I wasn't as slack as I first thought. And considering I was dealing with a major house extension and a trip to the US and Canada in the middle of it all, I didn't do too bad at all! I didn't get through my commission list, but I'm halfway and determined!
Favorite drawing for 2007:
Would have to be the piece I did for the Deathly Hallows coverart comp at TLC.
My best drawing for 2007:
I painted a portrait of my (deceased) stepfather as a birthday present for my Mum that made her very happy.Most under-appreciated by the universe, in my opinion:
The Bill I did as a get well pressie for my nutnatz
, but that's to be expected since I didn't post it anywhere. *is an idiot* Most fun drawing:
The big Yule Ball at Malfoy Manor painting. It had so many characters in it, many I've never drawn before, so I did enjoy that. Sexiest drawing:
The Harry/Ron I did for Shocolate's birthday. Sometimes my Muse is kind, and I do think this piece radiates love and caring with a strong sexual pull. This piece drew itself. No references.
Picture I want to be remembered by:
"Holy crap, that's wrong, even for you" drawing:
No... don't think I qualify for that one this year. ;~) I must aim for one this year! Oh, I did do a Harry/Hermione piece at Prophecy... Heh. But I haven't seen it posted anywhere so I can't post it here.
Drawing that shifted my own perceptions of the characters:
The Founders. It really made me think about them.
Hardest drawing to do:
I think that would have to be the SW Weddings one I did for may_child
. It seemed to take forever. So many layers. And the lace... And I got all anal with Han and Leia's clothes, which I was happy with in the end, but... a lot of time and effort in that one.
That I had to close my Commission list, and still haven't got through it. And that I haven't managed to do more Deathly Hallows art.
That my DH coverart piece is still the most viewed piece in TLCs fanart gallery.
