I expect you've seen the Rainbow Cards that I'm starting to do.
Over the course of the next year or two I hope to make a whole series of these, which would eventually be up for sale - most likely not the originals, but good-quality prints of them. This isn't something I'm intending to make a living out of, but making a little bit of cash on the side won't do me any harm.
So far I have these planned:
I'm going to start keeping a little list of them down at the bottom of my journal to help me keep track of the ones I've done.
But I would really like suggestions as to what else I could do! At the moment I want to keep them on the rainbow theme, but if you have a suggestion (maybe for a b/w Halloween one, or particular combinations of colours) then feel free to throw the idea out at me. Also, they don't have to be animal-themed, but try to give me something that is the focus of the image; flowers tend to be rather background things in these cards.
Also, should the versions I upload definitely be themed at birthdays? At the moment I'm having the cloud with the text written on them, but could I maybe leave it blank so people write their own messages in? Just throwing the idea out there. I'd really appreciate feedback!
If you comment on this journal, I'll go through your gallery and pick out my favourite three pieces with reasons, with the proviso that you'll try to do a similar feature sometime - it's a good way to make people look through each others' galleries, and spreading the love and art is always nice. I'm putting down 10 slots, but if I'm getting lots of feedback I'll add more. I will go through your galleries... in the next few weeks.
Slots 1 and 2 go to !chefhalfnote and ~DragonDreamer93 because they already did this and I commented on their journals.

This guy's been practising his drawing, and it's coming through.
It's always nice to see people rewrite old material and improve on it.

Steel FlowersRan Fan fiddled with the hair ornament that she'd inherited from her grandmother. She liked it; it was pretty, but...
She pulled her hair from the practical knot at the back of her head and began to comb it out.
The high laughter of a woman broke through the quiet of the end of the day.
She sometimes wished -she wouldn't admit it, but she did- that she could just be a girl. She'd grown up among men, wearing pants, not caring about her appearance, preferring anonymity to attention. She had never had the chance to wear dresses or makeup, or worry about her hair. She'd never gossiped and giggled with friends about boys, but she'd been gossipe
Because LingFan fluff is fluffy and nice. It's well-written too.
An interesting style, nicely done.
