Thanks! They're one of my favorite media to work with, but I can't do some things with them (like furry animals, those are epic fails if I use oil pastel >.<)
Lol I think I tried them maybe once... and it was a disaster! :) Of course, I'm no artist at all, never took any classes or anything, but I do like to sketch in just plain pencil. I have a lot of respect for people who can work well in lots of different media! :)

I quite like the skunk, though my room mate last year said it looked like the skunk was farting out flowers lol. Now I have problems not seeing that.

It is a hard media, fur and backgrounds besides water give me trouble, but I'm working on that slowly but surely! My worst media is honestly watercolor, I can't seemingly get the hang of blending the colors, but I do love some of the techniques like sprinkling salt on the paper when the paint is still drying! Really, it all boils down to practice. Right now I'm learning a lot about clay just through trial and error, particularly in throwing, since I've never done that before.

Just some photography pieces from my art trip to Chicago (may be repeats if you've read my other journal).


Where does the sky end and the water begin?


Love this shot of Chicago!

Several of my glazed pieces have finished firing, so I'll be getting pictures of them today (since I forgot my camera last night >.<) and I'll hopefully be posting them here tonight!

I need to stop saying I post things at a certain time since it usually fails XD. Anyway! Here are the ceramics that were recently fired/finished.

Candle Holder



White Lion-still selling this one at the clay club sale this semester, but not fond of how high the wax was on the bottom of the lion (not on there anymore-burned off).



Black & white dog-not sure if I'm selling this one since the floppy ear broke off and the apoxy glue just made a mess of it so that the dog just doesn't look very nice, in my opinion.



Phoenix-my personal favorite, though I wish the plant I had sculpted with this hadn't broken off/since lost in the first firing.
