Vacation Time!

:new:Attention, commissioners!

I realize I owe some character paintings to some of you for winning contests. I haven't forgotten! Sorry to put it off, but some RL has been keeping me busy. I will get on these as soon as I can. My sincerest apologies! I just wanted to let you guys know that I haven't forgotten, and I am NOT cancelling these, k? :)

Info

I apologize in advance if I fall behind in my notes, messages, comments, faves, watches, replies, deviations etc. I will be leaving for Las Vegas today straight after I get off of work today, and returning Aug 15th. I am bringing my laptop and we'll have net in the hotel room, but I can't promise I'll be in the room much!

Details

:bulletblack:We'll be staying at The Flamingo
:bulletblack:We're gonna be there over our 4th anniversary of being together (wee!)
:bulletblack:No, we're not gonna get married in Vegas :P
:bulletblack:We're totally trashing our diet on Vegas Buffets. Suggest some if you would!

Shows!

:bulletblack: Crazy Horse Paris Show
:bulletblack: Jubilee
:bulletblack: Cirque du Soleil - O
:bulletblack: Tournament of Kings
:bulletblack: Penn & Teller

Boy those shows are expensive, but it will be worth it! We're not big gamblers, so we needed something else to blow a lot of money on at once!

What about you?

If any of you've been to Vegas and have some suggestions on where to eat, what to see, what to do, or even just stories about your trips there, share 'em!



Seven Deadly Speedpaints

Challenge!

The Seven Deadly Speedpaint Challenge is still underway! If any of you out there have not joined yet, but are interested in participating, let me know either in comment on this journal, or note and I will add you to the list!

It started out as speedpaints in digital or traditional media, but we now have a photographer participating and will gladly add more artists of other media!

There's no deadline, no prizes or anything, at this time, as this isn't a contest, but it WILL give you some practice! Once I get a note/comment saying you want to join, I'll put your name down in the below list in my journal.

:bulletwhite:When you finish a submission, send me a note with a link or thumb of your image! I will be featuring these in my journal until I feel like doing something else :)
:bulletwhite: Tell your friends! :D The more examples we have here, the more fun this will be!

Some suggestions (There are NO rules!):
:bulletblack:Use these to practice things you need to work on!
:bulletblack:Use these as an opportunity to speedpaint!
:bulletblack:The works don't have to be super original, or perfect!
:bulletblack:Use stock photography to speed the process up!
:bulletblack:Try to push yourself to finish all seven! Don't get discouraged!
:bulletblack:Have some damn fun!

The Sins:
:bulletgreen: Envy
:bulletblack: Wrath
:bulletred: Lust
:bulletyellow: Greed
:bulletpink: Vanity
:bulletorange: Sloth
:bulletpurple: Gluttony
