wyld_dandelyon: An exuberant dandelion I painted (dandelion art)
[personal profile] wyld_dandelyon
So, every year, Capricon has an artist's challenge, where artists have to include several things in a single work of art. Lately, I've been arriving at the con and painting one at the last minute--fun, but I know I could do better if I wasn't rushing that much. So this week, I looked up the particulars ahead of time.

This year the criteria are as follows: Artist’s Challenge Award: goes to special works which incorporate a goat (the convention’s mascot, so a goat is always one of the things that must be included) and three of the following: a humanoid child, blown soap bubbles, a flag, an imaginary friend, a set of (balance) scales.

I did a sketch background yesterday, and hoped to do a lot today, but work up feeling sick and unfocused. So not a lot--but a little, at least. Better than nothing.



For some reason, the first picture came out really green. Bad choice of lighting conditions, I guess, since mostly the cell phone gets really good color matching.

The plan is to include a kid (likely a child-satyr) swinging from the tree blowing bubbles with her imaginary friend. Her real companion, the goat, is in the tree and looking on or perhaps trying to bite the bubbles. I'm still pondering what sort of imaginary friend I should include.



As always, suggestions and comments are welcome.

Nice tree!

Maybe a tiny imaginary friend, either riding on the goat, or leaping at the bubbles?

Alternately, goats and trolls go together ...

Brainstorming gets me ideas, too. :)

Looks like it's coming along well! ^_^

If @sphinxhijinx were doing this, I'd imagine the imaginary friend would be a small winged kitten being surprised by being trapped in one of the bubbles. :)

So pretty! I like the idea of a tiny monster riding one of the bubbles, myself!
