Catching Up: Harry Potter ATC's

So, Im not going to lie, I am a big Harry Potter nerd, I have loved the books since before they were HUGE and I like all the movies. I saw #8 at the midnight premiere, in 3D. I had to go a few towns over to get tickets, but I didn't care, it was awesome.

So.... I happened to find a Harry Potter ATC swap and I jumped on it. It was simple, make an ATC for each house and one for Hogwarts. I decided to use the house colors as a backdrop and feature each house's mascot. Simple but classy. For the Hogwarts ATC I used all the house colors and an object representing each house, and a quote from book seven that I like.

First up is....
Griffyndor! I think my lion looks kinda sleepy, but I think it turned out pretty decent, although my girlfriend pointed out that he has no ears, but the picture I was referencing, the lion was SOOO fluffy I couldn't see his ears.

I really like this one, I think the background looks awesome, and the badger is super cute. His body is a little too long, but, he is still super cute.

Ravenclaw: I like the colors, although it is hard to see it in this picture. I am not sure how I feel about this eagle, it's fierce but oddly chicken like. I think... o0

Slytherine! I really like this one too, I like the background, I think it looks awesome, and I really like the snake too. I made it not look fierce on purpose, 'cause you know not all Slytherine's are bad.

Here is my Hogwarts ATC, I think it's pretty cool. I like the different patterns I used. :)

So there are my Hogwarts ATC's, for all you Harry Potter nerds (and not) enjoy!

Bad Blogger, Bad! Recent Projects Part 1: Scuply

So.... I am a bad blogger, I haven't updated anything in FOREVER. Okay, about five months, but it feels like forever. I am going to try to get caught up with posting my recent art projects, I won't even try to put it all on here at once, that would be CRAZY but I will do things in batches. There will be a LOT of Halloween stuff, since it's my favorite Holiday. But I will try to disperse other stuff in between bunches of Halloween stuff. :)

So I made some Sculpy stuff over the last few months. Most of it is spooky or Halloween related, but not all. :) Most of it was divided up between three swaps and a WTA on swap bot (Tiny Halloween, 13 Days of Halloween, and candyLESS Altered Box Halloween Swap and the Winner Take All). Except the dragon and short squashy pumpkin.

Sleeping Fire Dragon. I think he turned out super cute.  Sleepy little dragon. :)

My spooky 'haunted' tree, one of my favorites. :)

A trio of mini pumpkins.

Mini Cauldron. It turned out taller and skinner then I expected, but still cute.

Mini spider cake, my other favorite!

Mini graveyard. The tombstone is crooked and the rose is way big but.... Ooopsy?

So that is all my sculpy stuff for the last five months, although most of it happened in the last month. Enjoy. I'll probably do another update on Monday.  Maybe tommorrow ;-)
