Rock Band icons for sale

I like statistics, and when I've looked at the stats for canvas and paints, one image gets more hits than anything else, and that's of the Rock Band icons. So, in a shallow attempt to please you, I've painted another, this time with the keyboard icon the right way up!

It is 25 cm high, by 60 cm long, is on canvas board, and will cost you £85 plus postage and packing. 

If you'd like it, email me here, and I'll tell you how to pay for it.

FF VII airship started

I've been away for the last week - busy doing family stuff up and down the country. I took some paintings away with me at the weekend, to try to catch up with them, so I'll be posting several images over the next couple of days.

First of all, I've started the airship on MegaMan001's painting, so here it is:

I'll be doing some more later this week.

Final Fantasy VII background completed

I've done some more of the FF VII painting, and I've finished the background. I had started on Aerith's boots as well, but hated the pixilated look from the source image, so I've overpainted them, and am going to paint them realistically, instead.

I'm planning on starting the airship thingy next.

And yet again, I've had my tea cup too close to my paintbrush, and have almost been mixing paints with Lady Grey tea! I'll learn, one day ...

Guild Wars completely finished

Hurrah! The Guild Wars painting is complete!

This was fun to do, helped massively by Thayer sending me a link to a video of Kitten and Snake interacting with the dragon - I could see the characters from all sides, which helped so much.

Guild Wars, Snake finished

It may well look completely finished, but there's still a little of the background to do, but I have to stop as I'm going out for dinner in a few minutes. here's Snake finished:

Guild Wars, Kitten finished

Its my birthday today, so I've taken the day off and have painted. I've also been taken out for lunch by my son, and am going to my daughter's for dinner Bliss. I also believe my husband has made me a birthday cake, judging from the smells coming from our kitchen last night!

Anyway, I've painted Kitten in the Guild Wars painting, and I'm about to start Snake. I'm hoping to finish this today.

Guild Wars - dragon and bones done

I've re-worked the sand dunes on the right - I watched the video again, to get a closer look at them, and I'm happier with them now.

Its absolutely raining stair rods here, so after getting soaked just nipping out, I'm staying put! I've painted for a couple of hours, and as well as re-working the sand dunes, I've painted the dragon and the dragon bones.

Its not far off finished now, just Kitten and Snake left to do.

Guild Wars sand dunes and shadows completed

I've finished the sand dunes, its the dragon next!

Here's a close-up left:

Not too sure about the sand dune on the right - I'll see how I feel about it when I've painted the skeleton in, it might look OK. If not, I'll have another go at it.
