Here is what I made for the idea I got from the final person I talked to on Omegle chat. They said "Turtles" and that it was for their friend Casey, who likes turtles. In addition to the colored doodle, I included two other doodles I made as well.

Omegle Stranger Idea Number 5

Here is what I came up with for the idea of "Stapler Orgy". I made some different crops on it and I'm just including four of the different crops here. As with my other illustrations for this project it's pretty rough and simple but it gives me some ideas for things I could do in the future (like either expanding and working more on this sketch specifically, or taking style/color choices and applying it to other illustrations I do).

Haven't forgotten about Omegle Stranger project

I haven't forgotten about the last two people I talked to for the Omegle illustration project. The second-to-last person wished to go by "Molality Party" and suggested the idea "Stapler orgy" or if I had too much trouble with that, "Hitler intensely observing the atomic number of Hydrogen" (the atomic number is 1). Two very strange ideas, and the guy also had a great sense of humor when I talked to him further.

The last person I talked to suggested "turtles", and said to just mention the name Casey, because it was their friend Casey who likes turtles.

I'm sorry this project has taken so long (I told the people I got the ideas from on Omegle that I would try to have each of their pieces up by the end of the week, and that was about two and a half weeks ago now). It was a bad time to start the project, when I was just about to move, and I've been trying to apply for jobs and also hang out with a friend who is going to be going to Denmark for six weeks soon. But, enough explanation/excuses. I am working on sketches for "stapler orgy" right now.

"A flower with different color petals to show we are all different no matter what color."

That was the idea offered to me by the next anonymous Omegle user I talked to for this project. Like I said before, they disconnected without giving a name. I was also a little confused about the "to show we are all different" part, but oh well. It's what they told me.

The illustration as it is now is not that bold in terms of how I did the color, but I saw some potential to experiment more with that while I was making it, and I included some examples of it with and without the outline. I plan to go back and play around with it more. Also, the flower in the photo I was referencing was actually split at that top part, so that's why it is split in my drawing. I thought it was kind of interesting. Also also, credit to my mom because the flower was one from her garden.

Illustration "Monster Eating Pizza..."

Ok, here is some sort of final version for the illustration "A monster eating pizza made of eifle towers [sic], on Neptune's ring. But Neptune is painted in the style of mondrian." As I mentioned in the previous post, this idea from a random Omegle user who asked to be called "A Daiquiri named Bishop".

There was a brush in Photoshop that I randomly chose that had an interesting-looking effect. I noticed that some of that frayed effect on the right side is not present as much on the left, but when I went to look for the brush again I couldn't find it (or maybe my brush settings had changed - either way, not sure how to get back to that effect again). There are also other various qualities about the piece that I know are not as good as they could be. There are some things about it that I like too. I'm already sort of behind on this project, though, so I'm going to keep moving on, and go back to this piece later to add/refine things.

Also, as a side note, I made the Mondrian-style ring from scratch (well, looked at some of his paintings for reference, but I made my own I mean) - that part took a little while to make.

Doodled ideas for next drawings

The next idea for a drawing came from a random Omegle user who asked to be called "A Daiquiri named Bishop". Their idea was this: "A monster eating pizza made of eifle towers, on Neptune's ring. But Neptune is painted in the style of mondrian."

So here are the small doodles I came up so far with for this idea (sorry the quality is so bad, my access to a scanner has been limited lately):

The next user who offered an idea disconnected before I could get their name, but their idea was this: "A flower with different color petals to show we are all different no matter what color." I'm not sure if they meant to say "to show we are all the same no matter what color", but I guess I shall never know. Anyway, just one idea so far for that one.

Update on project coming soon

Sorry, but not all of the illustrations for this Omegle Stranger Idea project will be done by tonight. It's probably going to take a few days into next week as well. Moving in and settling into my new apartment has taken longer than expected. :/
