Emily’s Drawing

I did do all of these pictures on the computer with Adobe Photoshop CS2. I am hoping that when we upgrade to CS5 they will be surely a lot better in details. Most of them took about 5-7 hours to do or less. You surely can see the difference by style and type. Dates are on them. I was inspired by songs & other artists.

*On the one picture with the brown and white dragons I did it with the dodge tool and different brushes. My second picture ever done. I am still very proud with it!! Dragons names are Jake and Vixena*

*The one titled ‘Let Go’ I did in Febuary. But finished the highlights and foreground (not back) like yesterday. I liked the foreground style  form a video on youtube so I tried it out, it worked out great! It is on a filter called glass, I really liked it. The dragons name is Sunna. (Grandma LaRene should known whose name it is. He He)*

*Spyro comes form a video game I adore. There is two images that I used in this picture, the sky and sand. Tried a style and turned out great! Layers where softened to look like so. Took only one day to do. ^^*

*The dragon in the dance lights is mine. I liked to make it look like SuZair was dancing. Another one dayer.  I loved the name form grandma LaRene’s book ‘Stones’ Quest #1’*

I don’t love the way I shaded. I dislike how the smudge tool and blur tool works. Just gotta work with what you have. :shrugs: I do sketches before line art. Basic Colors. Dark Shading, then light. Details, next background.

Questions are always welcome. I can do requests for FAMILY ONLY or good friends. Just my type of things I draw. I will try my best to put more on here.

Family Skiing

For those small number of readers out there, you probably thought we gave up on our blog.  We have been busy and I need to record more for the world to see.

As a family we went skiing the other day.  We had a lot of fun.  Something that we wanted to start having more of was hobbies and activities as a family that we do together.  A family that plays together stays together.

Here are a few shots of the fun.
