Help me! Help me! Help me! Help me! Help me! Help me! Help me! Help me! Help me! Help me!


Medium: The marvelous #2 pencil

What should I do with this!?!?!?! What should it's center be????!!!! I really need help, any advice for trying to figure out something to but as its center point?

As you can (hopefully) see it's a scene by a small pond, a (odd) tree, rocks, castle and mountains in the back ground and billowing clouds... but where do I go from there? (as you can see in the bottom picture, where the center scene is better)

Add Frodo Baggins, reading! I know that sounds kinda cliche, but seriously, the picture looks wonderful already...Frodo would fit in perfectly without detracting from the rest of it. :)

Frodo?
Or maybe a naiad?
A stag?

Those are good ideas, I like them, Thank you both. =)

Everyone! I even (dare I say it?)need your most wild ideas... (shoot, I said it...)

(*pretty please with 3 cherries on top?!*)

um.... paint it. acrylics, not water colours. Add a sun in the background and have the water reflect the colours, making it more brilliant, so that the pond (or lake, i guess) is your focal point.....

just a suggestion... ^^

Hmmm...let's think of some thinking for poor Libby to put in her picture...

1. A beautiful princess with a very long train (that'd fill up the left side)

2. A group of.... monkeys having a BBQ :P

3. A cottage with a flower garden (that might be too much work...)

4. I know! Since there's a castle on the hill, you could draw a whole little peasant village in the clearing where all the poor serfs spend their days :)

How about a flying car?
I'm kinda in the harry potter mood right now.

Jare and Lib said...

Whoa... These are all great (I love the one of monkeys BBQ! Hehe, made me do that silly giggle that only comes once in a while here *rolls-eye at self*)

Thank you all again!

A peasant child with a basket...

What to add? It should be something different,unexpected. Like
-A garden. Except this garden should be growing things that your can't grow. Like paint brushes, or something like that. You could combine that with an elven girl in a cloak gathering these things.

I borrowed one of your quotes but posted a link to your blog. Great blog by the way.

Perhaps a princess, staring thoughtfully into the pond...
