    Umm well I downloaded lots of fun brushes for photoshop.. the ones that make grass and stuff, then made oodles of layers to get everything just right.. took a pic of Dekka and turned it into a silhouette and did the same for a pic of a woman. The woman was a tiny model so I used the liquify feature in PS to put some pounds on (not enough .. but hey its a dream right? :D)


    And thanks everyone. It felt good to make it. I can't wait for firefly season so I can sit out on the grass with Dekka on my lap. Listening to the horses munch away and watch the fireflies.
     
  4. Dekka, that is amazing.

    Thanks....I'll tell you she was not an easy dog to draw. Poodles are easier but I wanted to try. And ofcourse it kind of turned out cartoonish but still cute

    I love all three of those pictures! It's good to see drawings from people I've never seen draw before.

    I am trying SO hard to get back into drawing. I somehow got to a point last year where it just wasn't fun anymore and had about 20 pics I needed to get done. For some reason I just couldn't draw anymore at all.

    Anyways, here's one I've done and redone about 6 times. I didn't like the character design so it was hard for me. I sat down on Tues and colored for 6 hours straight and boy did my hand HURT! I'm slower than I used to be. I used to pop these things out in 2-3 hours.

    The BEST part though is it's been actually FUN. I think I needed to try another simple little cartoon to get back in the swing of things. Hopefully this is the boost I needed.
    Hopefully I can finish it this weekend. And now I'm realizing I have no scanner anymore. :(
