Cartoon round robins

MACE started this set with Lucy, Linnda4atc added pumpkins and the bird, I finished it with Snoopy and background. This is actually an old Round Robin from last year's Thanksgiving period. :)
Linda4atc started this Round Robin set with Fred Flintstone, Tandy added Dino and I finished it with the house in the background.

Randomness:
  • baby slept until 7 a.m. for about 3 days
  • but today I'm writing this at 6 a.m. because he decided he had enough sleep
  • I forgot to schedule a post for today anyway so he did me a favor :)
  • It's baby's first birthday on Tuesday. :) Can't believe it's been a year.
  • I'm trying to schedule a photo-shoot for him on Friday next week. Hope the slot is open.
  • I've been spending way too much money this month. Internet shopping is a curse.
  • And there's that thing again. What should we buy the baby for his birthday? I don't know, he has everything. 
  • I should probably stop shopping and give others a chance as well. :)

Boxtroll - Shoe

Some requests I get for custom trades are just weird. But I love doing them as it pushes me out of the box. Apparently there is such a thing as a boxtroll and this one is named Shoe.
 Random stuff:
  • Baby likes books though he doesn't like it when I read to him. :) 
  • He got his first bump on the head but I put butter on it as I read on the internet and it never developed beyond a dot of redness. I was impressed as I didn't believe it would really work. And he hit his head really hard on the edge of mom's sofa, so much so there was a hole for a minute until the swelling started. No blood though.
  • Grandpa heard him cry and right after ordered to get rid of the sofa and buy a new, more baby friendly one. We bought it on Monday but have to pick it up today.

Portraits

Some ATCs I've done a while back. Not my usual style but I like them. It's like they've mature a bit. :)

Random stuff:
  • I got a new photo camera for New Years. I broke mine a long time ago and I didn't want to buy a new one so I borrowed my mom's which I dropped on the floor recently. It's still working but has glitches occasionally. 
  • Do your loved ones ask you what you want for a present? Mine do that constantly and it's somewhat annoying because I usually get what I want when I want it, so I have no idea what to tell them when they ask me for present ideas. And it seems kind of lazy on their part. 
  • Luckily for them, this year my camera broke so of course I had to find a new one. That's the other thing. I have to find a present myself, go get it and they pay for it. Which doesn't really feel like I'm getting a present since I'm doing all the work.
  • So, I found the camera I like in the price range I was comfortable with and I ordered it on-line. The baby woke up, I fed him and we went grocery shopping with my mom. I go to a shop I don't usually go to but somehow I was there that day. I glance at the cameras they have and I find a newer model of the same camera I ordered an hour ago and for less money. I was so upset with myself. Newer model meant 12x zoom instead of 8x. I wanted to reserve the camera so I could go home and cancel my order, if it was possible and then get back to buy this one. But I couldn't reserve it because it was the last one they had. Ok, to cut the suspense I figured, if it was meant to be, things were going to work out and they did. I canceled the order, got my money back and went to buy the newer model that was still waiting for me. I was happy. :)
Here's my baby boy after I cut his hair for the first time. Only a little lock on his forehead because it was getting in his eyes. From birth he had this mohawk going on and beneath it the hair was shorter anyway, so I didn't have to cut off a lot.

Victorian ladies


For this Round Robin  Linda4atc made the Victorian ladies, mcgillisj added the horse in the above set and I finished it with the background. I added some steampunk as I thought the sky was too bare.
In this one I added the dog and Tandy finished it with the background.
We have snow and baby boy is enjoying himself. :)

Feathers

I had a thing for feathers for a while. :) It was fun drawing them.
To remind you what Round Robin is. It's a set of 3 ATC cards that are worked on by 3 artists. The first player starts the set with a certain theme, the 2nd player adds to it and the 3rd player finishes it. Then each gets to keep one card for their collection.

The below one was started by Linda4atc with the pen, I added the blue feather and MissM finished it with the rest. Awesome, isn't it?! I love how it came out.

We had a little photo session with baby boy for Christmas. It's difficult to catch a child still. Half of the shots were blurry in some way. :)
Happy New Year 2016!
