I finally got around to doing a photo shoot to make a size reference sheet for my handmade roses.   

plus, new large large rose with some lovely automotive blue/purple chameleon paint.  It’s absolutely dazzling in the sun. 

I drew a thank you for Minkishly, who is the most lovely person.   When I sent her a box of samples I had no idea she’d try to tackle each and every one with her review!    I just sent a variety so she’d be sure to find something she’d like, but instead she did this amazing massive review which had to take FOREVER to write.   It’s here if you’d like to take a peek.I’d never drawn a mink before, how about that?  Turns out they’re furry noodles of cuteness.   Plus my digital skills really suck and I need practice.   :)

So, I got a wacom bamboo for my birthday from my other half.   I LOVE the thing, but I’m generally pretty terrible at drawing/sketching digitally.   It feels foreign compared to sculpting.   

Tyson Murphy over at Blizzard did an amazing paintover from a 101 Dalmations screenshot a while back and I recall thinking, “I’m so going to try that someday.”    

So, to practice using my new wacom, and hopefully eliminating that foreign feeling of drawing via computer, I did a semi-paintover on one of my favorite WoW screenshots. 

Top is the original, bottom is my altered version.    I love Kharazan.   Given that it’s an older area however….I took a couple liberties with tidbits that didn’t make sense in the scenery (random square of blue sky anyone? what about beams that end in mid air? lol)

It was a lot of fun, plus I have a new header for my WoW blog!  :P
