After several months the devil finally gets a nice velvety close up. It's hard to tell but the background is red, velvet matte board, giving him that luxurious evil feeling.
"Ooooohhhh so soft, so evil, that lord of the flies is classy fellow, what with the monocle and all."
So to kept idle hands busy I made the devil. I had the idea of making a
devil in a blue suit, a bear in blue flannel and so on.... But Doug gave
me some real nice red, velvety matte board that I want to do something
with. However, everything I've done so far relies on light shinning
through it, so to use the matte board I'll have to concocte something
that doesn't. And yes the Devil is smoking two cigarettes, he is that
Here is a little short that started off as just an excuse to mess with shapes,(just like on Sesame Street). The yellow dresses where made first, by drawing lines and circles on to paper then cut into the shape of a dress.

I'm calling it a fail.
I started this project a couple of weeks ago as something to do to keep my hands from becoming the devil's playthings. A little bit of scenic fluff, a nice mountain a few birds and some gold fish. But it's all gone to rubbish. The sky isn't working out the birds won't fly correctly, the fish won't do anything, so like the Lorax I'm sending them off. I like the waves move and will file them use later.
So what next!?!?!
I've had the suggestion of a robot unicorn, but that will have to wait. Right now I think I'm going to just make images I like rather worry about a story.
....I still didn't get a project done in February. But I did get an idea for the next project, which I got started on. It's not a "full" project, it's not a story, it's just a chance to make some images that would be cool. You know some mountains, some fish, a few really cool waves. So far I've just got the mountain...
