Funny how things work out...I had no idea what I was going to create last night, all I did know was that I wanted PINK! I wanted to do something with pink in it...I was skimming through images and found my face page that I'm embarrassed to say I don't remember who I got it from...and loved the girls face and knew I would be using herrr...then found the wings......then already had the legs from a magazine, so got that all done and then she had no hair...great....I have never been able to do a good job cutting hair off one image and adding it to another... never works out for me. So I realized I HAD to draw the hair....at that moment I didn't even know what my quote was going to be, but now I wish I had made it bigger and more all around her face...more wilderrr! But got that done and it was toooo yellow, so I added some lo-lites to her hair! Actually she has several colors involved! I guess she was high-maintanence! But she looked so happy and glad to be there, so then I realized she had to have arms that raised up to the sky! So I then realized I would have to draw them too!!! Great. They are more the whimsical style arms I think! I actually found this opaque pink/fleshtone-ish marker I used to color them in. Since I already had the blue background when I drew them, it was difficult to make them look opaque enough to show up. I can't say enough about glittery pens and hi-liters! I have a glittery pen fetish, I'm pretty sure. I usually do not outline my letters in them but I did this time and I used hi-liters on top of each other to create different colors in places. So then I finally got it all done and I was having some mild anxiety wondering what the letters would be.....I looked through some of my quotes and nothing excited me....then I read the simple quote I used and I just looked at her hair and her happy face and thought..."yeaaaaa" that's the one!
So thats the story of "Wild Fire"! Have a good day!
