I painted a pretty cool painting (for a newbie), but she was not my first
idea for the Drop Dead Gorgeous theme.
I am on the Rick St. Dennis EDT, and he is very well versed in the
drawing of gorgeous ladies. His etsy shop is filled with beautiful
women of all ages, sizes, and time periods. He really knows how
to draw scary chicks too, but I had the idea to take one of his
pretty gals and make them dark with my coloring.
I have done this in the past with other, "non intentionally dark"
images, and they turned out pretty good. Well, not this time.
In fact, it turned out so freaking bad that I actually
threw the image away.
I NEVER throw out images that I mess up on.
I always try to salvage them, or at least let them serve as
a cautionary tale for others.
I had to redeem myself with the intention of using a RSD image in the
way that it was originally intended.
I used the image of Meena from RSD's etsy shop
(I'm not sure that she is still available, though).
I followed the "choose a sketch" challenge over at
Simon Says Stamp challenge blog, and this is what I came up with.
I used a sentiment from Stamp Insanity's True Blood set.
Those are some great sentiments (thank you, Catherine), and I get
quite a bit of use out of them. Unfortunately, it appears that
Stamp Insanity is no longer in business.
