"Despair" Another painting/collage thing. This one is 12"x18" (scanned in 6 parts! woo yay! x.x). Honestly, i don't know where this came from cuz im not depressed or upset at all... It just happened lol\r\n\r\nMixed media (black canson paper, brown paper bag, marker, inkpen, gel pen, magazine clippings, fortune cookie papers, temporary tattoos, grade reports, sketchbook doodles, and oil paints) on illustration board.

Rats...are so evil.\r\nThey worm their way into your hearts...you love them...so much..and then they just die after a year or three. Evil critters... they break my heart time and time again.\r\nBut i wouldn't trade my pet rats for anything! They are so worth it. Yes, that means i LOOOOOVE rats :D\r\n\r\nThis is just a random sketch that got way more attention than it should have :P

Okay, okay, yes, this is just a bunch of sketches, but i really liked how it looks. The hap-hazard image placement kinda works for me...\r\nThese are just sketches of my brush fox (http://vcl.ctrl-c.liu.se/vcl/Artists/Laura-Westrate/bristle.jpg) for an art project at college.

OpenCanvas session with my Roo boy. Top image is me trying to figure out how he really wants to be drawn. He wants his half meerkat-ness back ^^ \r\nBottom image is what he drew for me :D

As usual, little stuff like this takes waaay longer than you'd think it would; at least for me it does XP\r\n\r\nFlash5 pic based off images i drew with Yahoo Messenger's Doodle IMvironment.

Reupload (edited some, and a better scan)\r\nThis didn't start out meaning anything, it was just a sketch of myself in a dress similar to my prom dress..but then i kept adding things, and it took on lots of meaning. Lyrics are from the song "Don't Fake This" by Chevelle, only the word "in" has been changed to "with" in this image. \r\nInks, Prismacolor markers and coloured pencils, and gelpen on 8x11inch sketchbook paper.

Painted the other day... Took just over two hours. Clean-up was great fun *sarcasm* Just a collage of images and thoughts.... ... .. .\r\n\r\nOil paints, newspaper, brushpen, prisma markers, ballpoint pen, ink, crushed dried rose petals and leaves on an 18x8 inch slab of mattboard.

A scribble for my college dorm door cuz nearly everyone here calls me Cricket, and some don't even know my real name... and there is no mention of any such "Cricket" on my door :P It can cause confusion!\r\n\r\nImage is 8x13.5 inches; inked in sharpie, coloured in Prisma marker with sharpied-over-by-hand computer text, all cut out and glued onto a slice of mattboard (i love that stuff!).

Reupload: Final version of a pic i started in March of this year (yes, i take forever and a day to finish pictures). Original sketch can be found here: http://vcl.ctrl-c.liu.se/vcl/Artists/Cricket/Sketches/waterwings.gif\r\n\r\nInked with a brown chocolate-scented gel pen, cut out of the paper in my sketchbook (yes, that took a few hours! *rubs her poor hand*); on a "scrap" piece of mattboard (about 11.5x7.5 inches) i drew the waterfall, rock and fern (various colours of brush pen and gel pen), then pasted the wolf-girl on it, coloured her, drew the border with purple gel pen, coloured it in with coloured pencil, and added more to the water Fern is standing in.\r\n\r\nOh, and the bird got the same treatment.\r\n(btw, the mattboard is off-white)

*sniggers* I had to do it sooner or later; trying to figure out what a Roo/Cricket would look like :> I like 9 the best (hence the "*" and it being bigger), but your imput is welcome as well. I've even included an uncoloured one in case you feel like suggesting new markings all together ^^

Coloured version... I hate Microns...if you put enough layers of ink down, the markers pick it up and smear it all over >.< I think i salvaged this okay though. Too bad my scanner hates my 'blonde wood' marker colour; it's so much more vibrant than the dull tan areas here!

Don't mind him, he's just thinking he makes the dodge and burn tools look good...\r\n\r\nPhotoShop7 colouring test.

Random something i painted in my sparce spare time here at college. I don't know what it is..but hey, still kinda fun. I recorded this into a little .rif movie file and its really fun to watch over and over again...

It's all really just a test to see who knows what's a fruit and what's a vegetable ;)\r\n\r\n(What food group can we shove up our noses next? :D)

Stupid little crooked picture of Cricket. It's taken a few months to 'finish' as it has been forgotten about many, many times...

Quick test for the new scanner i got for my birthday. It..kinda failed :( That orange highlighting... you can barely tell it's there irl. The apple though, well, my old scanner would totally flatten out red tones, but this one doesn't :D I don't like how it handles sketchy pencil lines either, or slightly off-white areas. Totally washes stuff out, and i can't manage to fix it :( But, so as not to be too hard on my scanner, i'll admit that i too failed at drawing this image...it's so stupid and ugly!

Yes, i saw her head in the carpet pattern at our cottage...\r\n\r\nHB pencil colourized in PSP7.

Roo saw a street sign that he wanted really badly, but i told him it's not a good idea to steal such things...\r\nBy the way, my shirt says 'LP' *fangirl* His is '3Z3K137' ...or something like that...\r\n\r\nSketched in pencil, scanned, inked and coloured in Flash5. Copyrights added in PSP7.

This is the cover of my current diary. About 3 hours total of ball-point pen doodling and coloured penciling here, off and on over the past few days. It's rather silly, but oh well.

For three years you were my companion... i thought you loved me... but i must have been mistaken. I'm hurt. You're evil.\r\n\r\n(edit desc.) My computer is currently dead. I know, before it was just my scanner, but now my whole computer is down, so i shall not be posting for a while. I will be back by August 23rd though cuz that is when i leave for college and i know i will get the new parts i need before then...

Dern scan line... But hey! i did get this finished on time; only took staying up all night long o.O Wendy's such a good friend though, she makes it worth it. Here's hoping she likes her graduation gift *crosses fingers* These are twin elf rat-fairies, just to be sure you know lol\r\n\r\nMicron ink, Prismacolor marker, watercolour, and gel pen on 11x14 inch Bristol board. Note: Bristol board does not like watercolour...

Roo wants a tattoo... He made a little sketch for me a few weeks ago, and i took it from there; making my own version and inking it in Flash. I then tried to draw it on his arm today, but it didn't go as well as i wanted. The one photographed is on his right bicep, and the mostly-white one is on his left, but i really screwed that one up, so you don't get to see it :P\r\n\r\nOriginal image idea © 2003 Alan Brown, art © 2003 Laura Westrate
