My fiance painted this, so this post is on his behalf Smiley

Our friends J and E got married this month, and they received a painting from me (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=242610.msg2676902#msg2676902) and a painting from my fiance! 

The groom, J, couldn't get his groom cake made with a specific comic book cover as the image on top.  All the bakery could do was screen an image onto the icing, and he didn't want that...so they scrapped the idea and he was pretty down about the whole thing.  In steps my fiance, who loves comics and painting, and he meshed a comic cover (the one where Scott Summers and Jean Gray get married) and one of our friends' engagement pictures to come up with this:

On three sides of the canvas, he made it look as if there are pages.

On the left side of the canvas, he painted in giant silver "staples".

He presented it to J in true comic book fashion, with a "bag and board".  The board was posterboard, and the bag was a gift bag from the craft store. 

When J was given this painting, he loved it so much that he cried!  Cheesy

That is such a great gift for a comic book junky.  I'd cry to if someone put that much love and effort into a gift for me.  Great job!

Thoughts become words, words become actions, actions become habits, habits become character, character becomes destiny, you become confused, just be nice.

OMG, I love it. Oh, how I wish I could've had something like this. Tell your fiance he did an amazing job.

That's fantastic! I saw the thumbnail and wondered what someone made out of the Jean Grey/Scott Summers cover. I totally recognized it because it's a really great rendition.

Very sweet and very clever!  Grin
