As I mentioned, I used this month's SketchFest as an exercise in speedpainting, so I ended up with seven images that are not quite finished, but that wouldn't take much more work for me to feel comfortable with calling them 'done'. I'm thinking of cleaning them up and making them available as prints from Imagekind. What do you think? Does anyone want to see finished versions of these? Would prints be of interest to you?

Here are my reactions to the sketches.

Hippo: meh.

Keeper: My second-favorite. I love the chalky style and the contrast between foreground/background. More, please!

Fairy ring: Again, I like the chalk, though it's different here; cute.

Rat race: Probably has a good story behind it, cute, not as gripping in the imagery though.

Egg hunt: Most interesting imagery in terms of surprise, good colors and framing. I'd like to see more of this.

Not your usual: Cute dragon, cute concept. I actually like this one the way it is. I'm not sure more detail would add much to its charm.

Reading the future: My favorite! Much love. This is adorable already, and would really benefit from added precision. I wouldn't want to lose the soft edges, but you could put more detail into the room. Also you've got a whole bookcase of books -- if you write small, you could put titles on those, or if you're worried about size, maybe face some of them outward. I love titles on books in art.

Keeper of the Forest is my favorite, is that the white stag?

Why is nine-year-old you in Lorelei's bedroom?

lol! It did end up looking like Lorelei's room, didn't it? It's probably because it was nearly 4am and I was getting too tired to be creative :P
