An Artist..I am not.

Okay…don't laugh.

I entered a swap in where I have to draw.
I know I can't draw and have stated this many times.
So why you may ask, am I in a swap that involves a talent that I don't have.
Well, I have always admired those that can draw and I love the "big eyed" girls.
I have been following Megan from "My Creative Bliss" and Ady from "Dream Dolls" for a couple of years now and can only dream to draw as good as they can.
When I was on the Face Book page Creepy Cute art (where the swap is taking place), I fell in love with all those images and I think I got a bit carried away, teehee.
They only needed one more person for the swap they were hosting and informed me that I could use a stamp…I thought I could rock this swap.

Then I started to over think the swap (as I always do) and felt bad that everyone was drawing their art and I was copping out and was going to use a stamp.
So I came to the big decision to draw my girls/images.
So here is my swap card.

I drew her first with pencil, then outlined her with black marker and then coloured her up with my Copics.
Because the swap was Creepy/Cute. I had to add a bit of creepiness to her.
So I added buttons to her eyes like Coroline ;)
I also added some washi tape to the edges.
Look I even drew a bit of her body…look at me go, lol.

This was actually the first girl I drew.

Here is her close up.
I wanted to add shine to her eyes, but my white gel pen is dried up. Those suckers dry up before I get a chance to use them :(
So I used a white pencil, but it doesn't give the same effect.

I am still having some lighting or recording problems, so I'm hoping to share my layouts tomorrow.
Just to share how important lighting is.
This is the same image as above, but I took it in a different area of the house.
Pretty big difference.

Here is a video I did on these girls that I drew :)
If you would rather watch the video on my YouTube channel just click on the link "Tracy's Treasures24"
I hope you all had a Creative Day :)
