2007-09-20 [Jitter]: It's insane that you did all that stuff without a tablet o_o <3

2007-09-20 [Elisha Kelly]: yeah :P I know :D of course what made it easy was that I sketched then scanned. After that I would select the area to colour, and painstakingly build up the colours with airbrushing on a very opague setting so everything was smooth. smudge, blur and airbrsh are my friends... now i love my tablet, but sometimes I still use the mouse, depends what I am doing :D

2007-09-20 [Jitter]: I I see :) I did some crazy stuff with a mouse once or twice but yours looks really pro no matter what o_o /kneels and worships again

2007-09-24 [Elisha Kelly]: it helped that I built the colours up slowly, it hid the unsteadiness, and I had my cheats that kept the lines neat :D and you should not worship!!!! >:P you work is fantastic, I might not comment much but I am always watching **0.0!** :P

2007-09-24 [Jitter]: *blush* Thanks :)*huggle*

i guess it's as they say "Evryone in their field" I suck at lineart but I'm quite glad with my 'romantic-school' paintings ^^

2007-09-24 [Elisha Kelly]: exactly... I haven't really improved as much with my drawing as I have with colouring... I love colours!!! :}

2007-09-24 [Jitter]: I know what you mean ^^ Sometimes I feel like I want to bathe in my guache x)

2007-09-24 [Elisha Kelly]: :D I used to feel that way about paints... but it's too messy with kids about :D and I think digital suits me :)

2007-09-24 [Jitter]: Haha same here. I was messy even without kids around. I imagine it will be worse with a baby around x)

2007-09-24 [Elisha Kelly]: yeah... if I turn my back she's into the paint before I can blink, and usually it's to help me out by finger painting all over my canvas x)

2007-09-24 [Jitter]: I can't wait ti have 5 kids so I'll have to move in a bigger house where I'll have my own secret artdungeon /cackles evilly and rubs hands Mr. Burns style x)

Yay for Little artists ;)

2007-09-24 [Elisha Kelly]: >.< yikes 5 kids!!!!! :D I am staying at two, two are a handful, imagine five!!! :P though I admire people who can be as organized as that :}

2007-09-24 [Jitter]: Haha I'm not organised at all xD

Actually I always say I'll have as many as they come my way. But I always wanted a lot of kids ^^

2007-09-24 [Elisha Kelly]: i did until I had my last >.> the labour hurt, and she's pure trouble!

2007-09-24 [Jitter]: I'm not stopping till I have at least one girl


2007-09-24 [Elisha Kelly]: I have two, but no matter what anyone says, i am not deliberately trying for more :P If a happy accident happens then more joy to us, if not then it is fine :D

2007-09-24 [Jitter]: hehe I had only one brother and always wanted to have more siblings so I'm having many kids xD

2007-09-24 [Elisha Kelly]: I can understand that :) I have two brothers close to me in agew, and in my early years, my three cousins where at our house constantly :D

2007-09-24 [Jitter]: haha my two (male) cousins were always around too but they were teaming as boys and usually left me out *goes emo and cries about life being unfair* x)

2007-09-24 [Elisha Kelly]: hee hee, I was one of the boys... :P I gave as good as I got :D, I kinda miss that about myself.

2007-09-24 [Jitter]: hehe :)

2007-09-24 [Elisha Kelly]: XP 

2007-09-24 [Elisha Kelly]: I type really bad! >.<

2007-09-24 [Calico Tiger]: You're so wrong! You've improved with all of your artwork, not just your colors! *lurves*

2007-09-25 [Elisha Kelly]: :P not as much as with my colours though :P

2007-09-25 [Jitter]: I luurve Courtney as a fairy, the shells one and the pencil one from 1998 :D I suck at pencil drawings I am so bored with it because I can't just splash large areas with colour x)

2007-09-25 [pixish]: bweh *fangurls you so much more now* :) Some of those are amazing :p The seashell one is like something I'd expect to see a print of

2007-09-26 [Elisha Kelly]: It's the best artwork I have ever created... and the only one I ever actually sold. Oils it was... much loved by all :P It went for a bargain price of $180 dollars, and was bought by another artist!!! I think I was flattered that an artist wanted. I am very rusty with paints now though... I am kinda scared to do them, in case the kids get into it, and because I might not do as well as I used too... :)

2007-09-26 [Jitter]: I'm really eager to try oils but it would be such a bad idea in my house -.-

2007-09-26 [Elisha Kelly]: hmmm not necessarily. you can get oils these days that are more like acrylics. try windsor newton. :) you can also get acrylics that are very rich and put in a retardant so they are similar to oils... the possibilties these days are endless! :D

2007-09-26 [Jitter]: Awesome, thank you :D As soon as I get some money in hand I'll go rampage some art store ^^

2007-09-26 [Elisha Kelly]: :P Rampage is fun... though I haven't able to in a while... whenever I go the kids do all the rampaging :P

2007-09-26 [Jitter]: Heheh Luckily I still have some years ahead to rampage for my own till the baby will be old enought to be allowed to rampage x)

2007-09-26 [Elisha Kelly]: lol, you'd be surprised at just how quickly they learn to rampage. :D

2007-09-26 [Jitter]: x) If he becomes an artists he may rampage as much as he wants *giggles*

2007-09-26 [Elisha Kelly]: are you pregnant now? I read your journal, but I forget whether you are or not?

2007-09-26 [Jitter]: Yeah 16 weeks now :) And I'm not really showing yet x)

2007-09-26 [Elisha Kelly]: oooh still early, so you have had your first ultrasound... did you find out whether tis a boy or a girl?

2007-09-26 [Jitter]: Actually my OB scans me every visit and does measurements etc ^^ I've had about *counts*3 ultrasounds so far :3

And he's a boy ^__^ ->Jitter& Lif's baby :)

2007-09-26 [Elisha Kelly]: wow! 13 scans!!!! :P I was lucky to have two the first time and just the one the second XD

2007-09-26 [Jitter]: 3 lol, not 13 xD

But I'm going to get 9 in general I guess :) 1 per month

2007-09-26 [Elisha Kelly]: darn it!!! that star had me confused :P I do that quite often, speed read and don't look at the words properly... :D thats my excuse and I am sticking to it XP

2007-09-26 [Jitter]: xD

2007-11-27 [Lite]: Its funny how your actual drawing style changed through the years!

2007-11-27 [Elisha Kelly]: not really it is a progression, as we grow more comfortable in the years we develop a certain style. I can draw realistic If I must, but I have spent the last few years developing a more stylized drawing style, which I very much prefer. you can see some more of how I have progressed at
