Art Dump- NYC

So, I went to NYC in October for my first art show there, which happened to by in the Coco MoCA gallery (that would be the Museum of Conan (O'Brien) Art).  It was funded by a promise of art, and the pieces I did there are below.

Macy's Day Parade

 Narwhal of Liberty

It's a Trap(tor)

It took me a total of 25 hours to do these. I would like to spend the rest of my life in big cities doing this kind of art. Not necessarily silly art, but architectural art, as that is my true artistic background.

Art Dump!

I've done a bunch of non-blarg related pieces lately, but I guess I haven't been particularly good at posting them. Some were done for contests, others, for the hell of it. Enjoy... or else!

I had had takoyaki with my dinner, the night I drew this.  Tako is Japanese for octopus.

This was created for a contest on Deviant Art where you had to use their squiggles to make a picture.  I like drawing narwhals, and zombies, so this happened.

I'm totally bummed that I didn't even place with this piece. It was also for a contest on Deviant art where you had to use a panda, a light and a pie to convey "Plans Gone Wrong. "  This is called "The Chaperone" and I spent a really long time drawing all of those lines. A really long time.

JRose Dress-Up

Again, as with da Cheeseblarg, since I had to make stuff to do a tutorial, you guys get to reap the benefits! Drag and Drop to dress the Jodee doll up!

And should you want to pin this, here you go! Two versions to link to.

How to make a Drag and Drop Dress Up Game using Adobe Flash CS5

I made this step-by-step tutorial to make a drag and drop game in Adobe Flash Pro CS5 because I have not been able to find one online.  I hope it helps you!

Please read this whole thing before starting, or at least read the extra information at the bottom to keep you on track.  All pictures can be made full sized by clicking on them to see details. OH, and SAVE EARLY AND OFTEN!

On to the tutorial:

First things first, if you do not already have a copy of Adobe Flash Professional CS5, go download a trial from their website and get it started. Google can help you if you are not sure where to go.

Now that you have the program open, choose the option  “Create New Action Script 3.0”

At the top right, by the search box, make sure you are on the “DESIGNER” layout as that is how I am working in this tutorial and it will make it so that you are able to find elements more easily, (and I have found it to be the easiest  layout for this application).

Step One
The first thing to do is to get your background ready.  Adjust the size and color of your background on the bottom left panel.  If you are putting your Dress Up game in a blog, like Blogger, you should make it no more than 650 wide, or about 50 pixels smaller than the maximum width of your post.
I’m making mine 650 x 900.

Step Two
In the same dialog window, you can choose your background color.  I suggest making it something other than white, to make sure that none of your dress up pieces end up accidentally transparent.

Blog Banner

This was a banner I created for my friend, Tracey's, new blog, "Sugar and Spice, My Ass!"

Which is a blog about her darling adorable Tasmanian devil of a child.

I've been looking at steampunk stuff lately, and had a hankering to draw this a bit ago.  Enjoy.

Amanda Palmer

I was just listening to "Vegemite" and laughing and thought I should most certainly paint the lovely Ms. Amanda Palmer.  I guess it could be considered a wedding gift, too!

I'm fairly pleased with it.
