i have no traditional art here so i had to call in a lot of favors super late at night looking for whatever i could get my hands on. i had some water colors, black spray paint, drawing paper, colored prismas, and some tape. so i wanted to try and reproduce the last frame of this comic.
i thought first of using water color for the colors and stenciling out the black areas for the spray paint. so i did a quick grid drawing and cut out the stencils. then traced a second one to paint and well... the paper didn't take to kindly to water color.
so it was so crinkled up i couldn't lay it flat. meaning there is no way the stencils would even work. did i mention i didn't even have a paint brush? well i had one that was for painting houses but that made things a little difficult... so i said screw it i'm going to take my chances and just spray paint a page and hope for the best.
this was the first attempt and i didn't have any glue or anything else so i just taped down what i could and laid flat the other pieces. it actually worked out better than i thought and those misty areas where the paper wasn't perfectly flat i actually liked. kind of a happy accident. although what is not a happy accident is i forgot the girls mouth on the right... so i had to cut a page just for the mouth.
so that big page with the hole in it is the page for the mouth. you can see the black pieces on the cardboard that i used for the stenciling and the white cutout from remnants of the stencil.
that's it cut out with her mouth there, and look! there is a yellow spot from paint i spilled... i need more room to work. after all of this i just started coloring and well... pretty self explanatory
the paint made it difficult to color but i still did the best i could. i hope she likes it and i hope that she remembers it. it was like 4 years ago after all.
Oh well, i guess i should say Merry Christmas everyone. i hope everyone is happy.
