Hey You Guys!!!!

Hey everyone! I'm in a charity auction art show that's tonight in Pasadena. The theme is 80's kids movies and there will be a screening of Goonies at the historic Rialto Theater.

The charity we are working to help is Donorschoose.org, they provide materials to needing classrooms. In this case, we are concentrating on classroom in Southern California that need art supplies. We are trying to help the next generation of artists! We need your help, and they all need our help! So if you can't make it to the movie, and don't want to bid on the art, please give any small amount you can. DonorsChose.org, TTG's donors page
Check out the flyer above for more info!!! And click this link to check out some of the other artwork: http://www.ttgcharity.com/auction/index.html


For my painting I chose The NeverEnding Story. And, if you seen the movie, you know that one of the sadness scenes is where Atreyu's horse Atrax dies in the Swamps of Sadness. But I didn't want to paint such a gut-wrenching scene, so I painted them right before, when they're walking through the swamp. Above is my first rough thumbnail for the painting.



And here is the color comp the I drew to size in Photoshop. I also nailed down the composition a bit more.


Here is the final drawing based off the color comp. Noticed I used some post-its to redraw the characters. I didn't get it right the first time.



And here's the final painting! It's 15x7 and painted in Cel Vinyl on illustration board. I am quite happy how it turned out!
And finally my girlfriend Kellie Smith made a Falkor wool plush. He's about 15 inches long!!! Pretty awesome!!!

Your wife's needle-felting skills are the tops! MY wife just gave me her heart in needle-felted form for Valentine's Day. I've got blurry pics up on our blog.
Our buddies at Grumble Toy here in sunny Winnipeg also do some needle-felting:

Hi Sean! Sorry for commenting on an older post, I hope you don't mind. My friend Faye & I recently watched Never Ending Story, & we both were curious to know if there were any Falkor plushies in existance. We stumbled through your blog through google images, & saw the Falkor plushie Kellie has made for you, & were wondering if she were willing to do a commission. Price isn't a problem.

Please contact me back at lilithiasama@gmail.com


THANKYOU SO MUCH!!

Stef.

Hey Sean,

Like others have requested, I'd like to know if your lady would be willing to design and sell a Falkor plush. My girlfriend has wanted one for quite some time and it'd be great if I could obtain one from you. You can email me at Kickboxer415@live.com. Thanks so much!
