View Full Version : (my brag): this is what my daughter does...

July 2nd, 2001, 11:48 PM
she's got tourette's syndrome, obsessive-compulsive disorder, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, a sleep disorder, and various stress syndromes. she's also stunningly gorgeous (ask gunner!) and creates "stoof" like this: she began with a pencil sketch, and has since been laboriously colouring it using photoimpact 6.0 and a mouse....

WOW!! That is worth a brag or two!

July 3rd, 2001, 03:09 AM
Absolutely Wonderful! WOW!!! is definitely right!!

Please repost this when she is all done. That is really great talent.

simply awesome. i love the pose. i'd love to see more of her work, if that's okay.~raven

July 3rd, 2001, 05:00 PM
more of her work? we're *drowning* in it, lol! she's quite prolific, now that she's gotten over her obsession about not displaying it.

hmmm... i wanted to show one before and one after computer enhancing, but it looks like i can only attach one per post.

this one, chicksitting, is the "before" -- a simple pencil sketch.

July 3rd, 2001, 05:03 PM
this one is another pencil sketch, a self-portrait, coloured in using ... i think it's adobe photoshop 5.0, this time.

she's rather good using those graphic editors and enhancers. me, i just fix ruined photographs, lol!

Thankyou for sharing those terrific pics.
You have a very special child.
She may have been given challenges in life, but she was also given gifts.
How lovely that is it a gift that she can openly share with anyone willing to take the time to look.

Very enjoyable pieces to look at. Thank you for posting them. BB.

Beautiful! Is all I can say about your daughter. Her pics are absolutely stunning! I can't wait for my older bro to visit so I can show him! He's an artist too.

Amazing. You have a very special daughter. Thanks for showing them to us.

Her work shows dedication, it'll serve her well. A fun software she might enjoy having would be kidpix- WE got it for the kids, and my husband and I often start an image in it before we import it into photoshop or suchlike.

These are amazing. :D Your daughter has a real gift. ::runs off to melt into a puddle of green envy:: :D

she gets it from my mother, although if you ask pilvikki, she'll probably object most strenuously.

July 16th, 2001, 08:01 PM
"she's also stunningly gorgeous" "ask gunner", o.k. if i'm asked i'd say "stunningly gorgeous" is a conservative description of threenorn's daughter nikki, bluntly she makes most of the current crop of hollywood "beauties" look like stale cheeseballs by contrast and i'm not exaggerating one little bit. if threenorns gives permission i'll see if i can figure out how to post the pics she sent me here.

(and threenorns is also right about her intelligence, wit and talents)
and threenorns is nobody's "dumb blonde" herself!

it would clash most horribly with my now-magenta face!

<dropping a curtsey to gunner>: thank thee most kindly, sirrah, and you may certainly post nik's photo... (being as i'm vain enough to brag "those are MY girls!" -- fathers were total losses when it came to the practical application of daddyhood, but as gene donors, they were first rate, lol!).

July 16th, 2001, 11:36 PM
i thank thee milady but i speak only simple truth (honors the lady's curtsey) now we'll see if i can sort this out. the titles are, i think nikkis

July 16th, 2001, 11:39 PM
didn't i say she was a stunner

July 16th, 2001, 11:39 PM
her famous "deer in the headlights" pose....

July 16th, 2001, 11:42 PM
all this and a sharp mind too

July 16th, 2001, 11:46 PM

July 16th, 2001, 11:48 PM
one more

July 16th, 2001, 11:50 PM
last but not least... threenorns does good work, doesn't she.

July 16th, 2001, 11:56 PM
i think threenorns has every right to brag on her daughters, the younger one's talents run in a different direction but she's got her young head on straight too.

July 17th, 2001, 02:44 AM
She reminds me of one of my cousins...Good thing, don't worry. I think it's the smile. ^_^

July 19th, 2001, 01:23 AM
dear treehorns, you are sadly mistaken about nik getting her talents from my - directly anyway.
there is plenty of talent in the branches of my tree, but the damn things skipped over my generation!!!
but yes, cute wee shit, ain't she?

July 20th, 2001, 09:22 PM
i think it's not so much that the sap missed your branch of the family tree, just that a squirrel made its home in it, LOL!

July 21st, 2001, 11:35 PM
you're both good people and i'm pleased to have you as friends
