Paper Digital Art- Interpretations "Handwritten"

I know I've mentioned Paper Digital Arts before. It's a great online community for sharing art, joining groups and swaps, plus tons of free images. Best of all- it's free.

Our theme this month was handwritten. I had tons of ideas, some pretty, some kind of odd. That's the cool thing about these themes, you can run in whichever direction you want.

So I started by trying to make a hand out of wire. I wanted it kind of skeleton looking, but I couldn't get it to bend the way I wanted.  I think I may need a thinner wire. I envisioned it looking kind of Terminator-like, with some scratched message on the page behind it. Oh well, maybe I'll revisit someday...


I made her instead. Her first set of wings were made from a sheet of transparency. They looked cool, but the acetate isn't forgiving- i.e, get a little glue on it, and it doesn't wipe clean. SO, they came off, and some guinnea feathers went on instead.

My page came from Sally. She did an amazing job:





Cool, huh?? Now go JOIN.
hugs- Lee
