The Art Store Members

Please add your name to the list on The Art Store Members. An invitation is not necessary to join but a commitment to bettering the art of Elftown is. You must do something, even if it's only from time to time. We want this place to flourish. If you aren't nice and you just give lousy unhelpful criticism or steal art then the Art Store Sentinel will kick you out, otherwise please enjoy the wonderful artwork. It is my hope that we can encourage one another and make our art even better. ^^

2006-07-13 [Dark Side of the Moon]: oooh! Looks like everyone took happy pills today! :^D

2006-07-13 [Urmando The Elfling]: Urmando takes a happy pill too....OOH Look, now he is jumping all over the place.....

2006-07-13 [Lady of Lore]: happy pills? (cocks head to one side) I'm just high on life ^_^

2006-07-13 [moonscale]: My friend was acting all silly and we thought she was ODing on her happy pills. turns out she wasnt :)

2006-07-13 [dayah]: urmoando jumping, hummm..interesting...I personaly like the little padded rooms when I get in those moods...then I don't hurt myself..heheh

2006-07-13 [Lady of Lore]: *hands urmando a helmet as he jumps by* ^_^

2006-07-13 [dayah]: lol

2006-07-13 [Dark Side of the Moon]: Been awhile since I've been this happy! You know what's really fun? Stay up late, I mean until 2:30 or 3:00 in the morning. Then, when you're good and tired and all silly from lack of sleep, eat a package of chocolate covered doughnuts with a large Coca-Cola! Woo-hoo! A caffeine dream! *ducks as Urmando jumps over*

2006-07-13 [moonscale]: I stayed up late and biked over to my friends house at about midnight, when I cam eback I climbed a tree and went on ET till about 4. *laughes crazily*

2006-07-13 [dayah]: I am always up that late, but I try to refrain from the choclate donnuts, but have been eating those over sugured frosted cupcakes..ack...and always coke...*gets knocked over by urmando as he passes by*

2006-07-13 [moonscale]: Even better though, I stayed up until 2 painting this water color I've been wanting to do for ages now. I just don't know how I can scan it...

2006-07-13 [dayah]: oh man....yeah I do my best art at that time at night it seems...oh I hope you figure a way..I take pictures of mine, don't have a scanner..kinda sucks...but hey..

2006-07-13 [moonscale]: we have a pretty good one because my dad scaned all his slides. he had a LOT

2006-07-13 [dayah]: oh yeah....yeah...all I have is a rather crapy digital cam, that my brother and sister got me last cristmas...

2006-07-13 [moonscale]: My sister and dad are camera fanatics(hence the many slides) I like painting from photographs

2006-07-13 [Cia_mar]: i like painting from photos too... the lighting never changes...*grins*

2006-07-13 [dayah]: heheh..some lighting on pictures makes it so easy to draw and othere just get me confused...

2006-07-13 [moonscale]: I do mostly landscapes- so lots of details from a remote location. I prefer to use photographs from natl. Parks and stuff like that. Do we have some place for references? I could put some together and it would be nice if someone else would too...

2006-07-13 [dayah]: oh thats kool..I am horrible with backgrounds....

2006-07-13 [Urmando The Elfling]: Urmando stops jumping...*getting tired of knocking down several people* ..... using differend references, for a background is ok, as long as you keep the lightsource right, and perspective....

2006-07-13 [moonscale]: for background? I meant landscapes actually...so its sort of ALL background. If you wawnt to see some of my pictures Through my window... they are almost all just like photographs in watercolor. (Not meaning accuracy.)

2006-07-24 [Dr.No]: Well well....this is a nice little enclave I stumbled into, I must say.

2006-12-26 [Dark Side of the Moon]: Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! [moonscale], as far as watercolours, don't worry about learning techniques. Art that looks like everyone else's is no fun. Develop your own technique by practicing and find out what works best for you and what you think looks good. That's what I did. I didn't study watercolour painting at all but it's my favourite medium. Good luck to you!

2006-12-27 [(eeob)]: I wouldn't say avoid techniques. They are very useful, and will only improve your art. But it's restricting to keep your face in a book learning someone else's methods every step of the way. I find it best to practice techniques for the sake of integration. This way if you work more intuitively your mind is open and focused on the idea and not restricted with the rights and wrongs of watercolors.

Here's a link with some techniques and tutorials,[moonscale].

2006-12-27 [Lady of Lore]: Please note that there are now two pages og galleries up and put into the new layout. You are wlecome to add to them or change around your pictures. Please give me some feedback in it. Is it easier to look at and find galleries you want to see? Also it seems that the life here has petered off a bit. I think things will pick up again after the holidays and then I will begin adding some more contests as well as spiffing up things to make this place run more smoothly.

2006-12-27 [moonscale]: wow. Thanks. I have discovered a few interesting things on my own, and I do like to use books (I currently have everysingle book on polymer clay the library has!) to get new ideas.

2007-02-02 [Lady of Lore]: ^^ Freshening up the page a bit and made a new area for the member's names to go...

2007-03-19 [Yncke]: I think Show your process is exactly something for the people of the Art Store, what do you think? ;)

2007-08-22 [Lady of Lore]: Alrighty with school started back up again I'm geared up to get back into this place ^_^ yay! Regular contests to come and hopefully all will be worked out with the archives very soon. If I have made an error or missed you or you got lost in the move please message me and I'll fix the error. It's not that I forgot about you its just technology can be faulty from time to time. More of my own art to come, espacially since I have been oil painting and watercolor painting! ^_^

Hullo again to all and be keeping an eye out for new things to come to here! ^___^

2007-08-22 [Lady of Lore]: Oh and Yncke I did see your post, I just hadn't looked into it yet. Will do asap, sorry about the delay.

2007-08-22 [Yncke]: I was just dropping a link, nothing more. :) (Well, not really, I like seeing other people's progress. :P )

2007-08-22 [moonscale]: I was wondering, if any of you have seen there are some wikis where people critique each other's work on Elfwood. Wouldn't it be very helpful if we could set up something similar for the galleries here? I think it would encourage people to share their ideas and experience. It would also encourage people to see more and different artwork. 

2007-08-22 [Lady of Lore]: Hmmm....good point...maybe something with links to elfwood art....I'll see what i can come up with. i'm also always open to suggestions!

2007-08-22 [Yncke]: Well, there's The constructive criticism club for the Elfwood side, and I think there's a page where you can put your drawings to get criticism, but I can't remember the wiki name. :(

2007-08-22 [Lady of Lore]: Maybe i'll make a devision of the art store for that and see if the managers of those other wikis would mind if I put thier link in here for others to see and go to. I'll look at how they have things set up and figure out some more particulars. Thanks Yncke ^_^

2007-08-26 [moonscale]: I don't have an Elfwood account, I do have a adeviant art account. I think the most efficient solution would be to put together a system where the location of the gallery wouldn't be as much of an issue and the location of the comments could be arranged to suite each person. 

2007-08-28 [Lady of Lore]: Its a good idea, I was thinking about putting in a spotlight thing for artwork on elfwood. I'd put the link to the work and put my own comments on the page and anyone who wanted to comment on the work could comment on it on Elfwood. I thought that may be a simpler solution. I could also do a similar things for deviant art...

2007-08-28 [moonscale]: I just tried using tube watercolors for the first time yesterday! It was loads of fun. The ones I have now are so much nicer than the old ones I had. I can't wait until school starts, then I'll finally have time to paint. 

2007-08-28 [Yncke]: @[Lady of Lore]: Perhaps you could cooperate with The Elfwood selections?

2007-08-28 [Lady of Lore]: Sure ^_^ I'll see who's in charge of it and see what works for us to team up a bit.

2007-08-29 [jsun]: Hi guys, I just created a usefull tool for artists that I think some of you could be interested in. I've only posted it on my website so far but with expressed interest, I'm sure i could incorporate it into elftown. If you like it, spread the word. 
It's action poses to use as reference for your art.

2007-08-29 [Yncke]: @[Lady of Lore]: I think that's [iippo] you'll be needing. :)
@[jsun]: That looks very useful. *bookmarks*

2007-08-29 [iippo]: Yes! I'd be happy to have some kind of co-op with you Lady of Lore! :) Is The Elfwood Selections anything like what you had in mind? If it is, you're welcome to just use it as it is (I'll take of the pw), or if you had something else in mind, it could be worked into it?

2007-08-29 [jsun]: Thanks Yncke ;D I should be able to get some more up not too long from now. Would really enjoy outside models too... you know... someone else as well.  Check out Dynamic Poses More people should be able to participate now. And Lady of Lore, if you want to exchange links, I'll be happy to do so

2007-08-29 [Lady of Lore]: Sure ^_^ All of these are great! Iippo, I haven't had a chance to take a look at The Elfwood Selections but I am very excited to. Once I get a bit of time today or tomorrow I will let you know ^_^.
jsun, that sounds great ^_^! I'll be sure to put the link here in The Art Store as soon as I get a little bit of time (got a test today but after it I should be able to work on somethings here ^^)

2007-09-27 [Lady of Lore]: New competition now open!!!!!

2007-10-11 [Lady of Lore]: Yay the galleries have finally all been phased through to the new page, give me a shout if you got lost in the move!

2007-10-11 [Lady of Lore]: Two new divisions of the store, News and References for Artists are up.

2008-06-03 [Lady of Lore]: Whew! I gotta get rolling here again!

2008-08-01 [Lady of Lore]: The lessons section has its new class starting today and the topic is Feathers and Wings! Come take a look!

2008-09-01 [Linn Scarlett]: It looks good :)

2008-10-08 [Lady of Lore]: The next art lesson section is up! yay! Everyone is welcome to go back and do the other lessons if they'd like! It's good practice!
