Me as a teenager (color!)

    Newer Older

    Because I really should be spending my time doing more productive things like getting ready for Mother's Day coming up.

    Here's my "draw yourself as a teenager" meme again, but this time in TECHNICOLOR! I really did live my life in purple hues back in the 80's. And yes, my life is now in various hues of greens. Makes total sense.

    Larger, please.

      oh that's great!
      you make me want to do one too!

      I would have to add a few different stages in my life though, because it would be fun.

      I love the way you drew your 80s hairdo.

      hahaha.

      You know, the badge fits nicely in a wallet. Nobody's ever asked to see mine.

      Amy, ha ha! My secret identity.

      r8r, makes me feel important to have it on my hip. Although, I didn't think to keep it in my wallet. Might have to do so now.

      those fake dry-brush-strokes are great, mind revealing the secret formula?

    12. wardomatic 114 months ago | reply

      No trickery, I'm afraid -- it's the "chalk" brush found in the main brush set in Photoshop. When I use it, I have a finger constantly on the eyedrop tool so I can make sure I blend the colors nicely. (I don't like the Blend tool -- too computer-y for me.)

      I'm a sucker for bandwagons, I'm afraid.
