Antheraea polyphemus Painting by jeffquinn Antheraea polyphemus Painting by jeffquinn
18" by 24" acrylic on canvas board.

Professor von Stephens: So, Quinn, whatcha got planned for this one?
Me: Well, i think-
Jake McKibben: (cutting in) Jeff's gonna paint himself lifting weights in the bottom corner! He'll be all, "Argghhh!" (struggling noises, pretending to lift weights)...
(awkward pause)
Me: Yep. That's what i'm gonna do.
Professor von Stephens: (shakes head, walks away)

Sorry, no self-portrait of me struggling under wights. maybe later.

I couldn't get this one to photograph well...:shrug: but i guess i'm happy with how the tape looks. but i could have done better on the thumbtacks and the moth. *double :shrug:*

hmph, i'm nearly fluent in spanish, but french is a language that i'm just starting to learn...so, i will infer that what you wrote's a compliment, and so therefore, i will say thank you.
uh, merci :blush:

Wow! I am now famous now that you put me in your comments. I'm still disapointed by the fact that you didn't put you in the corner like I said. Oh well. I just got this deviant art thing and have yet to put anything in. i don't think i'm technologically advanced enough to do it. or just smart enough. anyways, good job.

Jake! it's you! welcome to deviantART :devart:!!!

If you need help figuring stuff out, feel free to ask me. To ask questions, you can either send me a note on my front page, or you can just drop a question as a comment like you did here. About submitting your pieces, first you have to have digital pictures of your paintings in the computer...you have that, right? Then, you can click on the "Submit" button at the top of any page on deviantART, it's right next to "Browse" and "shop". You just follow the directions from there, it is all pretty self-explanatory. Again, if you have problems or need help with anything, feel free to ask. Yu may need help figuring out how your message center works too, but oh well.:shrug: Angie is here ~Rogue41 and Clay ~darkdruidsoulkeeper along with a whole bunch of other kids from our class...

okay, well thanks for the comment Jake!
