Even though I promised myself I wasn't going to do any more bird photos for my Photo of the Week, there was a beautiful egret out in the north field this morning posing just for me. I grabbed my camera (yes! the long lens was still on!) and ran out, snapping away happily for a few minutes. But when I tried to call up the photos for review, all I saw was a blank black screen with the words "No CF Card" in stark white letters. Arghhhhhhh!!!
At least I get to keep my promise of no more bird pictures, LOL.
Instead I set up my light box and took some more photos of my Fairy-in-Progress. Her second sleeve is on the floor by her right foot ready to add to the dress, but I wanted to show her skin and how it was attached before it all got covered up by her clothing. Oh how I love that color of blue!
I didn't make her smile on purpose, but I didn't realize I had sculpted her face so cranky! I need to give her dress a bodice yet, then add her hair, and then I can attach her wings and finish her. My favorite part!
In between stitching and gluing and letting things dry I managed to get the first layer of texture added and baked on to my dragon eggs. I'll play with them some more tonight.
I am adding one more photo of a sculpt in progress - this is the photo I took in order to check whether or not it was ready for a final smoothing.
Darn it... not quite!
And just one more... I took this one of my daughter and her boyfriend Saturday night before they left for Prom. I got others that were more formal, but I absolutely love their expressions in this one. Don't they look like they're already having a wonderful time?
