uggh!! it's about time the update showed up!!
i thought i was losing my mind. T.T
is having her first fan art contest.... >.>OMG.... i finished it!!! I spent 18 hrs on this!! and that's not including the sketch T.T but i think it was worth it.
the sketch was sooo tough
i kept changing my mind, and couldn't make a decision that I was happy with, but I'm really happy with this pose. ^^ i tried to do my homework on her, what she likes...what she might wear...
soooo tough! she does a bit of modeling so I visited all of her listed sites...i went through her hubbie's page...even her photographer's page O_O just to kind of get a feel for Alice, and what she likes. I saw this one awesomely shiny baby blue sequin shirt that i just had to mimic. And I stared at all of her plushies over and over again..
i tried to pick out specific ones that really stood out to me, and i realllllly loved making the little beads and necklaces. ^^ i hope she likes it. even though i know it's mostly a popularity contest, i hope i'll still be in the running.
All of the plushies are specifically *SplitxMindxPlush
and I did a little research in her etsy account, and found some of her favorite fabrics to use...[link]
the entire piece is vector...the fabric swatches were live traced. ^^ I used her likeness for the girl:
the tattoo was difficult to get. T.T it's a live trace of two different pictures of her tattoo fused together in photoshop, then live traced.
