I would love to have one of these lamps.

I had a delightfully low-impact weekend. With Ren Faire finally over, and Dickens workshops starting up this coming weekend, it will probably be the last mellow weekend I have until next year. Lots of sleeping in late, and lazing around.

I even found time to put together some new remakes.

Will & Ragani Will & Ragani
I found a great portrait of a couple for me to use for a remake featuring Will and myself. I will probably redo my face, but Will turned out well, thanks to the lovely selection of photos from Stephanie of The Naughty Minstrels.
Kate as Miss Bella Willfur Kate as Miss Bella Willfur
From a painting by Ingres of Countess Haussonville. Again, the source for Kate comes from a photo taken by Stephanie.

I am temporarily putting my retouched paintings up on my web site. I am in the middle of updating my entire website, and this is one of the sections I have made some progress on. You may view them, but please do not take them without getting permission first, unless you are either the photographer or subject.

In an effort to avoid work, I am taking this time to supply the answers to a couple of things I asked recently.

The first was my "what am I?" poll about an image.

Not surprising, most people got this one wrong. Before I reveal the answer, I must know, [livejournal.com profile] lysana, what exactly made you pick Beer as the answer? Foamy minds want to know.

Now for the "who am I?" queries in regards to the images I manipulated to include faces from various friends into existing paintings. The first batch (not counting the ones for [livejournal.com profile] emberleo) included several people, and the second had two images of just one.

Below are the images (not cropped) that have been altered, with a little description for each.

Shiney! (behind a cut for your bandwidth protection) )

So yeah, those who commented figured out who they were of, which seems like a good thing.

Now, I have a whole batch of new ones I want to work on of other people, but many of them are photos that either [livejournal.com profile] terpsichoros or [livejournal.com profile] tsgeisel took and I want to get permission before I use them, and perhaps some higher resolution versions (hint, hint). Speaking of obtaining photos, there are several of you that I know have photo I can use that I would like to get copies of. If I can get copies before I leave on Monday, I can take this with me as a fun project to work on while on the flight to Mexico. Specifically, I would like decent resolution face shots of [livejournal.com profile] tshuma (from that photo shoot you did earlier this year), [livejournal.com profile] smittenkitten61(profile), [livejournal.com profile] zhaneel69 (without glasses), [livejournal.com profile] labelleizzy (3/4 view, thoughtful expression), and [livejournal.com profile] fan_boy (3/4 view). Hey [livejournal.com profile] abditus! Do you still have the photos we took of [livejournal.com profile] shipofools999 we took at BayCon a few years ago?
