Day 15, 16 - 29 Faces, PPF & Doodle Fun for the Butterfly Effect... Yep it's Friday, let's party on!

OK this is REALLY cool... you don't need any artistic skills, truthfully, but you need to be able to doodle & be ready for a little digital magic... yesterday I was eating my lunch at the computer between jobs & visiting blogs... I finished lunch (except for the bits that got stuck down those gaps in the keyboard) & was/am still checking out your awesome posts when I barged on in to visit Denthe & check out her 29 Faces offering... and she had a link... well... MangaMem & I got so excited about it... last night we decided to do our next faces in the online program... It's like creative meditation... (yep & additive) do yourself a favour & have a little fun with this Scribbler link it's doodlriffic :)
Face 15 - Cougar


Face 16 - Ebony

Both times I started doodling hair (Doodles is the theme for this week's Butterfly Effect if you want to join the fun) actually, it wasn't hair but evolved into hair & well... into a face & the bird? Don't even know how it got there! This is the first time I have put digital art up for Paint Party Friday... the computer is a tool just like a paintbrush or camera, so why do I feel like I cheated LOL... maybe because no clean-up was involved?
Oh yes I have something else I am doing, my buddy Stacy from MagicLoveCrow is doing a PIF... so of course I had to partake (love those crows), for those interested here goes...

Pay it Forward 2012
I promise to make something handmade for the first 5 people who say "I'm in for the Pay it Forward" in my comments below. Absolutely positively (I insist) no pressure please feel free NOT to partake as sometimes we can take on too many things & many of you have already taken part of this before :) but if you want too... go ahead...

You in turn must post this and make something for the first 5 people (only) who accept the challenge to spread the magic. Rules are simple - created by yourself & received by 2013 (assuming & hoping the Mayans aren't correct)... That's it :)

Well dudes it's my hubby 'The Big F's birthday today, made him French toast for breakkie before his surf & I have sushi to make, tequila to buy (not exactly seamlessly nationally themed I've just realised unless we are doing 'all nations') & the babes & me will probably stick a couple of sparklers in a Mudcake for that party feel... sounds like a sweet Friday to me... have a great weekend ya-all!

I have loved all your faces...with big eyes and sultry looks and sweetness but this hair is kick a$$. Way to go girl.
Happy BD to your hubby...lots of Piscean folks related to the folks I follow...hmmmmmm maybe there's a theme. My own daughter is also a "fishie". Have a tequila for me. Oma Linda

Hey Shelle ;o) I didn't know Fraser's birthday was in this month too! Happy Birthday Fraser!!! It's so funny because he is tall, like my brother ;o) I love both your creations and it's not cheating!!! I would love to do your Pay It Forward ;o) I could make you something extra ;o) Think about it ;o) I don't mind! Shelle, I don't know if it's my eyes, but your writing on your blog seems to be smaller?? Have a perfect day ;o) Hugs ;o)

Loving your wonderful doodled faces. Happy PPF and enjoy the weekend, Annette x

Nordljus said...

These faces look fantastic! I'll definitely have to try that out! Happy Birthday to your husband, have a great day, both of you! Happy PPF!

Pointy Pix said...

Well, you've gone and changed the whole look of your blog since the last time I visited! I like it! (apart from the writing which does seem smaller so I have to squint!)

Happy birthday to your hubster - all the best folk are born in February - mine was last week ;0) Sounds like a pretty eclectic food party you have planned!

I love these doodles. I'm a bit unsure of graphic design (probably because I don't know anything about it) but these are brilliant!

I would love to do the whole pay it forward thing because I love the idea of it but I've promised myself I'm only working on an exhibit portfolio and/or commissions this year so I wouldn't be able to do much paying forward. It sounds like a great idea though.

Lesley Edmonds said...

These faces are wonderful. So much detail and doodling perfection. Great!!

ArtMuseDog and Carol said...

Fun faces ~ terrific! ~ enjoy the weekend ~ namaste, carol (A Creative Harbor) Happy PPF ^_^

denthe said...

OMG! Your faces are amazing! Can't believe you only just got to know that program. So full of character, and the colors look great! I haven't even tried out the colors yet (it took me a few weeks before I even discovered one COULD use other colors....)

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

I LOVE these faces! So very cool- I'll definitely have to check it out- 'cause I also LOVE new toys!
Happy PPF,

These are total awesomeness Shelle, I can't even use an etch-a-sketch so there's no way I could have created these :D XXX

Faye said...

Wonderful drawings, Shellie. I have Photoshop Elements but I don't think I could have done this. Your ladies are gorgeous, even with their unusual hairdos.

Catherine Denton said...

These are gorgeous!! And I don't think you cheated at all.

Ayala Art said...

Shelle this is fantastic! No, it is not cheating! lol in my case it would involve more work, since I'm not so great with the mouse :oP
Congrats to your husband, I hope you all had a wonderful day!!

I love your doodle faces, they are sooooo colorful and awesome!!! I have had fun with that scribbler before but never produced anything worth publicizing as of yet lol You obviously have much better control with your mouse then me, honestly great job!!!

IrelandBrady said...

I am embarassed to say that I was so stunned with your new art style that I completely forgot to read your accompanying article!

That Scribbler is amazing ... I popped over and had some fun with it, but (to be quite honest) I couldn't even become close to the beautiful illustrations you created.

I am still way impressed!

Jenny said...

Love your faces Shelle... I can see I am going to have to spend a little time playing with Scribbler...lol... looks like so much fun... and sounds like you had a perfect day planned for your hubby's birthday...

Hugs

Mina said...

This digital doodling is just amazing! I love what you created and you somehow got a bird out of nowhere? Now that is pretty crafty! ;-)

Happy belated to your handsome husband, Miss Shelle! I hope you had a fabulous party night. I am off to visit Miss Memphis. Hugs ot you always, my friend. Mina

Magaly Guerrero said...

First things first, I hope the hubby got SOME... um French toast and, yes, some, too.

Then I'll tell you that none of my doodling could match yours; that includes digital. These lady look amazing. Cougar's hair... well, awesome.

Simona Cordara said...

What you made with Sribbler is awesome!!!
