Be in my art  
Hey, everyone. :) I have been hit with inspiration, and I need y'all's help. I need pictures. It'd be nice if they were pictures of my friends and people I know, but not required. The pictures should be portrait-style-- profile, three-quarter, straight on, whatever. One person per photo. I need men with and without beards, with and without long hair. Women I need with some length of hair, but not necessarily waist-length or anything like that. Whoever has long hair, if it could be loose, that would be good.

These are supposed to be nobility characters, so that's the look I'm going for. Clothing should be renfaire-type stuff, or just something plain and loose. No glasses. The "cheese" smile is right out. :)

Please, please, do this for me! I need, as far as I can tell, about fifteen different people. You can send me as many pictures as you like. Post them here, or in your LJ and point me to it, or email them to me at andlorr@gmail.com. In return, you get to be in a piece of art, and if you go to the con I exhibit it at, you will have the satisfaction of seeing it and knowing that someone might pay for a picture of you. :)

I might have a full sized pic of this icon.

Would you like it?

Yes please! :D Woohoo!

Here's a bunch of pictures of me faffing around in an LOTR-ish costume. I can see if I have better quality ones, if you need them, but these were scans of printed photos. As you can see, the swans weren't impressed...

*weeps from joy*

You look amazingly beautiful. I'll play with these in Photoshop and see if I need higher quality, but I think these should do it.

The guy who took these is a really good photographer, lucky for me. Can I ask what your project will be? And can we get or see a copy of it?

Amber trumps. :) Individual quilt hangings at around 6x9, and hopefully one massive one with all of them. I was struck with inspiration today at the quilt show. :)

I will definitely post pics. I have three subjects so far, so I'll experiment with them and hopefully have them done in a couple weeks.

Neat! Looking forwards to the results.

I'm not sure if you still are in need of any pictures... but a friend of mine read your plea and directed me to the post. I'm a ren rat myself and have some pictures, if any of these can be of help, please feel free to use them. http://pics.livejournal.com/snafu_07/gallery/0000f8hz

Oh hurray! I do still need pictures, but it tells me I don't have permission to access that gallery. Do you know how to fix that?

Oops! Sorry... I bet I need to friend you or something... one sec. Sorry about that!
