PostSubject: Caleby   Mon Dec 31, 2007 12:39 pm

I had actually posted this before, then took it down before anyone else saw it. I thought! LOL! Then Rob PMed me asking me why I took it down. I took it down because it isn't really very good - BUT, you all have heard so me talk about the Opie Adventures so much, and about the children, I thought I'd go ahead and share a little of the "illustrating" with you. I'm hoping to do a little "portrait" of each of the children in the Opie tales, and I'm starting with Caleby, since he was the one who asked me to start writing them in the first place. SO.......here's Caleby, and then I'll be putting Opie in his arms. I've said it before - I wish I had the artistic talent of Tasha Tudor! It would make things a lot faster! But the children are stuck with my drawings. I can't afford Tasha's prices! :Hahaha:



There, Rob......you convinced me. batEyes

And Caleb is really much cuter in real life. grinsmiley

Well, I sure didn't see it the first time you posted, so you don't have to worry about me PM you, Savannah, unless it's something I need to get out of my system.......... grinsmiley

I think this is a great idea for you to share with us. Unfortunately, I can't view the pic at my work computer, bawling they block some images. Ranting But, I will view it when I get home tonight. :sillySmiley:

What a beautiful drawing. It must be great to be so talented, Savannah. I can't even draw a straight line!

And don't be afraid to share your talent with us. You under-estimate yourself.

I'm glad you had a change of heart. That is just a wonderful picture, Savannah! Sure wish I could do that. Is Tasha Tudor an influence? I looked at some of her work online, and the style is similar. Though if you ask me, yours is just as good.

Rob... *sniff* What a kind thing to say.
You know, I think that Tasha Tudor's work probably has had an influence on me, whether I realized it or not. I've loved her work since I was a little girl. Of course, I didn't know who she was at the time - I just knew that I loved the pictures. Now, even my town's librarians know how much I love Tasha's work, and they watch for books of hers that are being taken out of rotation, and save them for me. grinsmiley

Thank you all again being so encouraging, and for all of your kind words!

That's beautiful, Savannah! People are the hardest subjects to draw, IMO. You have a wonderful talent! Thumbsup

:shy: Thank you. It's my first attempt at something like that, so I wasn't sure how it would turn out at ALL.

Lily, thank you for your compliment on Caleby - he's an absolute doll in real life. Love I *could* be biased - but I don't think so. grinsmiley

I've sketched animals, and things like that - especially lately, for the children. But never people. They scare me. batEyes

I've read somewhere that Garth Williams, the "Little House on the Prairie" second illustrator, had never draw persons before his work in Laura's book. His former work was drawing animals, and he wasn't sure he could draw persons accurately. Adding to this, his art was all for fantastic tales, and he wasn't sure he could do a good job with realistic stories, as Laura would write His more famous character before LH was...an ANT (and not the "Atomic Ant", precissely)...But all of us knows what an absolute succes Garth's "Little House's" drawings were!

Maybe you may become as famous as Garth Williams, Savannah! batEyes

How interesting, Vanesa! I never knew that about Garth Williams! As for me.....I really don't think there's much chance of me becoming famous for my drawings! Or anything else, for that matter. :Hahaha:

I love hearing about the knowledge that you have of things Little House related!

What do you mean it's not good, Savannah? I think it's wonderful!!

I'm telling you, you should look into getting some of those stories published. Not only are you great at telling stories (just from the stories that I've seen you post here), but you are a talented illustrator as well.

I'm glad you decided to repost the picture. :)

I agree Pam.

With Opie being so adventurous.... a children's book could be done about his adventures and the kids.... the book would be centered around Opie and there would be illustrations of the kids and Opie. I'd read it!! :sillySmiley:
