Oh, boy, this one is different for me.....I've had a great day, and I think I can
Finally say my "Muse is Back" So happy, didn't want to say anything last week, just in case it was a fluke....:wink2: :rolleyes:
It's been months, was getting worried......:eek: :D
So last night I was going to do the cupcakes, and that Witch keep drawing me in, so I decided to do a quick sketch of her first. Well, I wasn't happy with her hair
so scanned her into the puter and opened my Photoshop Elements program just to see what she would look like with hair,
I played with my mouse. Well, an hour later she had skin, hair and hat all photoshoped over the sketch,
and I was pretty happy ( I'm not that savvy with image programs, never even learned how to do layers yet.....:) )

so continued on with her and finished her today.
I've never thought about doing digi painting, still learning to paint first,
but after this, with my mouse, I may explore further with the Art Rage,
as it was fun seeing it all come together this way.....though, I miss not having something physical in my hands....

So here she is, my drawing was 9x12 so kept that size.
I also used some Tangerine in there on her skin face and hands for the Challenge. Thanks Tangerine for Hosting and the great Refs...:)

I'm posting some of the stages and a close up of the face etc.

An adorable witch!

03-31-2013, 05:15 AM
very nice she does look like a wicked witch... although that cup cake looks delicious I think I will pass....

03-31-2013, 05:23 AM
Except for the background this doesn't look digital. Very well done!:)

03-31-2013, 09:36 AM
She's wonderful!
Speaking of layers, I'm finally starting to "get" them because my tablet programs are less complicated than the pc ones. So if you have a tablet...

:clap: :clap: This is so awesome and I'm so proud of you and your muse. Keep her too busy to leave.

Hey Sharrm:wave: love her wicked looking face:clap: seems you are getting the hang of digi but agree with Connie,only the b/g looks digi.
As well as Cher one of the other witches might have been Goldie Hawn,come on film buffs who was the other one.

03-31-2013, 01:59 PM
Great news on your muse being back Sharron! Love the digi and you've caught her expression so well. I like the combo of the cupcake too!

Thank you all for your lovely comments, much appreciated.

Gullie, darn, I remember a movie with three witches, but can't remember then name.....I give up.....who was the other one?????

Connie....Gullie....not happy with the background, just didn't have time, or know quite how to do the background. Will have to see what I can do to finish it better. Thanks for the input.:D

yaye, super, love that you saved the sweet lizard and gave her a cup cake, made me smile... :D

Oh you clever girl!
That face is really good - very 'real' - and you did it with a MOUSE!! Love the idea of adding the cupcake - add nice bit of whimsy instead of making her a horid witch.
If you enjoyed this, you'll enjoy ArtRage - and you'll enjoy digi work even more if you have a drawing tablet and stylus.

Have to say 'Well done Shar' :D :clap: :clap: :clap:

04-02-2013, 05:19 PM
Skappy......Thank you:D Smart man, I wouldn't take it either :wink2:

WooHoo.....I got a "Well Done" and "3" Clappies from Teacher!!! :angel: :cool: :D
She doesn't give those out easily, so I'm happy ;) ....Thank you Maureen, appreciate your comments' was waiting for you to see her. :heart:

I'm going to go in and do something with the background now, to pull her all together.
A tablet and a stylus, hmmmmm will have to message you on what kind....

04-02-2013, 08:06 PM
Wicked! Great job with that digi stuff!

04-03-2013, 07:12 PM
Thanks Jen for the comment...:D much appreciated!!

Great job with the mouse and first digi image. She looks wonderful, and the cup cake was the frosting on the "cake.":)

looking great, well done!!!

I finally got back to this painting, and worked on the background.
The photo reference had the dolls in a store window which had lots of reflections etc.
so I tried to give an abstract sort of appearance to it. I'm happy with it, looks much better now in my eyes.
Still only worked with a mouse, and no layering. So the "Old Hag" is now Finished!!! :D :lol:
Thanks for Looking.....:wave:


04-09-2014, 03:26 AM
