Nice job Nolu--did you sketch it out first or trace from a photo? You should cover it with something to protect it--maybe an acrylic varnish?

Good god, girl. How do you ever get anything done?

Bax, I had a VERY loose sketch down in the first place. In the earlier pictures you can sorta see it. It was surprisingly accurate, so I didn't have to do much erasing and re-drawing.

I'm not sure what I'll use to protect it yet.. next time I pop into an art store I'm going to browse and see what should be best. In the meantime, it's safe and the lid won't be messed with for quite a while. Now I'm on to obsessively decorating the bottom half.

I don't think I do really.

I like the new photos! It's so pretty.

Next time you come over I'll beat you out of that, don't worry.

Thank you! I think so too! I keep looking at it and going "Did I make that? Wait, yes I did, it's in the style I use for my models..."

Did you already say if it's acrylic? (It's 3am, give me a break here.) I hate acrylic. As in - I HATE acrylic. But I LOVE gouache. So so much.

Going to bed. Leave me alone.
