  • 08:36 EMG Sketch Fest starts in 3.5 hours! #
  • 13:14 - Sketch Fest is open! :) #
  • 13:45 Mrr? I've been summoned for state court... and federal court. For the same time? #
  • 18:29 I'm halfway to my goal of 12 sketches, but only 1 is good for PA, and none are in new media. So, next up: 7 pieces in unfamiliar media. #
  • 22:02 Merp! I've overdone it a bit. Taking a vicodin and clocking out of the #sketchfest until morning. You guys have fun! See you in the morning! #

2nd Sketch Fest - personal wrap-up

This was huge! I have several ideas for both the website and the next time we do this, but as a whole, I'm very satisfied with the event.

I did 9 pieces (aiming for 12), only one of which is appropriate for Portrait Adoption (aiming for 8). I did do one in charcoal, which meets my 'new media' goal. I didn't do as well as I wanted, and I'm not entirely satisfied with any of the pieces, but I had a blast, and learned, and did stuff I wouldn't normally, so as a whole, thumbs up to me.

Probably the most fun, the prompt was bellydancing squirrel, prompted by draken_art!

Maybe my favorite. The prompt was Daddy-lion in dandelions, by an anonymous poster.

This last one is the one I'm most likely to finish. The prompt was "Gardens of the Queen Mermaid with peacocks" by lindseyhodder. Peacock fish intrigued me...

If you are interested in owning any of these originals, please contact me. Several of them, I will be exploring further on my own. To see what else was created - some of it from the same prompts I used, check out the full event:

A big thank you to our uploading form sponsors: selinafenech, draken_art and Jeffrey! I felt like having that form available for the participants was an enormous help, and really improved our ability to share our work. I am still accepting tips towards the webpage I am building to host this event in the future:

The next Sketch Fest is tentatively scheduled for June 18-19, at the same time. (I have jury duty starting the following week. For THREE months!)
