Love Lift Us Up

Hi all.... I have actually been able to be a little crafty this weekend - thank goodness... I needed some crafty sanity!

I  had a blast with the "blast off" of Planet Transport from SCACD Digital.

I went all FUNKY Colored with this. But my favorite part of the coloring was, surprisingly, the background.  The light background I colored with B000 in a circular motion, making it a little wild and wonky. Then I used the blender pen to place polka dots everywhere. I mimiced this with the dark blue - but in this one I airbrushed with B06 and then did the same blender pen polka dot technique. 

For the image I went all whimsical colored. The octopus is bright green - colored with YG11, 13, 17 and the purple is V12, 15, 17. The Airlift Batopus (or is it a Batsquid) was colored with V20, 22, 25, 28 and BG23 and 18 for the teal colors. 

The Silver and gold of the steampunk elements are C2, 3, 5 for the silver, and Y11, 23, 26 for the gold with crystal stardust gelpen over it. Once done I added some silver cord and some steampunk gear elements. 

I am going a little nutso here and entering several challenges. WOO HOO. 
Ok... Now back to watching movies and coloring - thankfully my headache is mostly gone.
