Upcoming Thing

This is going to be an upcoming event. This is a cartoon of a drawling I made but my dad helped me to make it better. So this is going to be a character in a story. The name of the story is not named yet but we do have the design and the characters. We will try to get back to you when we have more upcoming news. This is also going to be the main character. If you want to see more please leave a comment down below. Also we are going to do more characters soon once we have the time. Thanks for reading this. The Grau kids. 😉

Historical Fashion Drawing

I am a very big fan of historical fashion, and I like to draw dresses from some of my favorite time periods during our school breaks. I’ve saved up a few, so I thought I’d share my favorites with you guys:

Spring Art Contest Round #1

During last Christmas, my Scratch friend, Birdah, had hosted a winter art contest. I wrote a short series of posts on each round and, eventually, the results. Recently, Birdah announced that she is hosting a Spring Art Contest, and I’m happy to announce that I’ll be  entering and blogging about those as well.
For Round #1, Birdah requested that each contestant draw their Scratch username in a spring-themed font. Here are a few of the drawings, including mine:

This is Birdah’s example. It’s very unique, and the bird forming the “B” is absolutely adorable!

VioletShirtGirl created a brilliant design, and the way she lined up the words is really pretty and compact!

My entry wasn’t the most distinct, but I tried to make the letters spelling “Bravestar10224” as special as possible.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed looking these scratchers’ wonderful drawings!

Art Style #2

As I mentioned in my previous Art Style post, I’ve been trying out new styles of drawing. Some are more cartoony, some more realistic. This particular one that I chose for my second post is less realistic and more of a cute cartoony kind. So, I hope you enjoy my newest style of art and thanks for reading!

Disney’s Club Penguin Coloring Pages

If you go to Disney.com you can find an online game called Club Penguin. Club Penguin is a great game where you can play your own customized penguin and meet friends, decorate your igloos, care for your “puffle” pets, and so on. It’s an amazing online world full of icy fun!

During the past year, Disney has released coloring pages based on Club Penguin, so you can color your favorite characters and places from the website. I don’t normally do coloring pages, anymore, since I prefer to draw my own stuff, but I’ve had tons of fun playing with the options that these designs gave me. Here are a few of my finished pages:

This is a finished coloring page of Club Penguin’s Coffee Shop. My favorite part about this one was that none of the books had titles on them, so I got to choose what the penguins were reading.

These are “puffles”.

Basically, I just imported these to Adobe Photoshop CS3 and let my creativity go! If you‘d like to try it, here is a blank coloring page. Thanks for reading!

“The Ultimate Game Creator” Project Review

Screen Shot 2016-02-04 at 11.50.36 AM

For my third project review, I’d like to bring to you one of my favorite projects “The Ultimate Game Creator”!
It’s a great game featuring tons of detailed choices for you to make! In this project, you can create your very own platform game level that you can share with the entire community of Scratch, without creating your own project.
Made with lasers, bounce pads, unique characters, anti-gravity blocks, and so much more; Yllie outdid themselves! It was started on Dec. 12, 2014, and officially released on Feb. 26, 2015. Since then, it has been being updated and improved. The most recent release was Version 6.1, which came with lava, teleportation blocks, and more evil minions to spawn in.
The best part about it is that you can let your imagination run free by creating your own levels… and then let others rate it! You can share it on Scratch iCloud so that other users can judge your levels and you can judge theirs.Screen Shot 2016-02-04 at 12.35.12 PM.png

So, that’s “The Ultimate Game Creator”, all wrapped up into one package! Thanks for reading, and don’t forget to check it out here!
