The Far East Grows Horns

Here is my second submission for this week's
over at Barb's, Haunted Design House blog. 
'Gothic Asian Persuasion" is the theme.
I think I nailed it.
This guy was just begging' for some horns!
I also elongated his ears and then I clear embossed the entire image
so I could blend in the background color.
Note to self: be neater next time you clear emboss.
I went over the scroll work inthe background with a Sakura glitter glaze pen.
Aside from the shoddy clear embossing, I think it turned out pretty cool.


  1. I just noticed you need to change your 'about me' info - you're on the Hambo DT now, aren't you?!

    Anyway, what I came by to say was, if you didn't mention 'shoddy embossing' I wouldn't have noticed. I thought it was intentional; looks like dudeman's grounded, sitting on one of those giant floor pillow thingers. I think it looks awesome! (Love his horns, too, btw.)

    I also wanted to ask you if you've ever heard of Bombshell Stamps before... They sell classic tattoo & pin-up stamps, as well as an array of Dia de los Muertos sets - thought maybe you might like them. You can see some of them used on my blog ( or at the store at

    Have a great day - hopefully you stop by my blog for a visit!
