Two arty stuffs

We were doing 'crowd scenes' and the tutor suggested I try a battle scene.  By coincidence, I'd just drawn a battle scene with pen and ink so I decided to try re-drawing it with the support of Colin the Art, changing the things he suggested.  As usual it has photographed badly - contrast around the edges has been lost - but  I'm still pretty pleased with it. It's a battle of Elves, Dwarves and orcs.  The orcs are losing.  Hurray!   I'm particularly pleased with Colin's suggestion that I add an elf-archer on foot bottom right, so that the Dwarves become clearly short people (on goats) rather than simply breaking the perspective.

And the rescue that I adopted Rosie from has a christmas card competition, so I decided to make a very unseasonally festive image for that.  I don't know if it will be lurchery enough for them, but I tried!

I'd buy that Christmas card!

I wonder if before he met you, Colin the Art would ever have suggested a battle scene as a subject for a crowd scene. I like to imagine that you're broadening his perspective on suitable subject matter to suggest to art classes. :-D

I have to admit, my choice of subjects is not typical for members of the class... :-D

I argue it makes for a bit of variety.

Love your artwork. The Christmas card deserves to win.

Well, I hope that the judges think it will sell!

Wow; these are amazing; I'm very impressed, and would hang both of them on my wall, if I could! :-)

I'm delighted to hear you like them!

That is a gorgeous card - I love the swirling shapes of it.

I'm not sure why it makes me think of Eddi of Manhood's End - I suppose because they're both so pleased to see each other.

Oh! I hadn't thought of Eddi in years! 'On such as care to attend'.

When I was in the SOUTH some of the little churches I walked past were Wilfrid's foundations, and one of them had a copy of the poem - I had read it before, but not for years. (I thought he was a Northumbrian saint, but he seems to have fallen out with them!)
