If Santa were an elf?


Thomas Nast created the Santa that Coca Cola later made standard, but what if Santa really were an elf, albeit Jolly? I did this tonight just to remind myself that Santa could be nice. Seems none of you creative people out there are contributing...not even evil Santa's can get a response. There really is a Santa out there. He gives passing marks to failing students. Now do you believe?

Mall Santa with one kid too many


I used to look with suspicion at the Santa in stores when I was a kid. They never really looked that real to me and often quite bored or irritated...who could blame them. But I just thought what if Mall Santa got just one kid too many...

Santa when I was a kid


ok, so no one is trying. Here's the Santa I knew.

Yes I am lame....

Hey everyone,

I wanted to finish this painting and submit something awesome, but I've been crazy busy this week, so this one never got past the doodle stage. So instead of a roar, its more like a meow...it was still fun regardless.

Topic Three: Cats

Since no one has suggested a new topic to me I thought I would move ahead and put one out there. The new topic of the week is cats. I figure Miguel should like this one. As always feel free to take this painting to where ever your hearts content. This painting will be due one week from this posting date. Enjoy!

DINO

One good turn deserves another...mmmm dinosaurs...

I was inspired by Werner's post, so I thought I would avenge Freddy's poor dinosaur...or maybe I thought both would make a great meal?

I'm not sure if I'll do any more to this, but we'll see.

New Adventure



This piece is about a newborn dinosaur looking forward to it's adventures up ahead.
Colors turned out nothing like I wanted so I'm gonna stop working on this for now.
Once again it feels muted again. Gonna go try out some colors then maybe I'll rework this.
