The address has changed, so if you want to play along, click the link above. The prompt this time was "Autumn/fall" Mr. Toast, Creative Tuesday's very talented owner, wanted us to be specific to the theme. In case we wanted to "sell" (*giggle* *snort* hiccup* as if i ever would try to sell my sketches!!) or use as a seasonal card. Now THAT'S a great idea!! I have shrunk it and made a few cards from it already!! Thanks for the idea Mmm!!!
So here is the fun part. I got to play with my Copic markers!! I haven't used them in like FOREVER!! So I got to get fancy. I used them to create a shadow across the front, and blend them for a strange fall leaf look. I love coloring.
And the FUNNY (not fun) thing is that I attempted to make a real shadow, like from the light? know what I mean? Um. the weird dark brown thing on the left side? YES! that bad banana looking thing. I thought I would get all fancy and try this new thing that I've never done, and as I am not usually a drawing/sketching/painting type artist I figured it would be so EASY!! Really Daniella?
It looked good when it was just a pencil, but then I tried to go monochromatic with the shadow color. Black would not have been very festive. And each color I tried only made it worse. So then I tried to make it into a leaf. ?????? What? You never saw a leaf that shape before? me either.
So there you can see, a pretty good picture with a weird thing, that I AM STILL SO PROUD OF that I made copies of it for cards!! See? Although I am horrified with the weird brown thing, I am proud enough to send it to others!! Weird, right?
