so my old shoes kinda looked like the ones on the right :
and i got really bored of them

so i decided i wanted to paint them over! these are the second shoes i've ever painted (i'll upload the first soon!) and i used about thirty million coats of paint

here it is! :

both shoes!


right shoe: the woman [the paint's kind of cracked cuz i was .. uh.. too lazy to heat seal it.. but i'll get around to it soon! promise! Cheesy


left shoe! the man

most people i've shown these to dont realy get that they're people
can you guys see the people?

and the reason that theres silver streaks/ patches and stuff was that originally i wanted the blue to be a bit shiny so i added a thin coat of silver.. but then i decided nah i didnt want to cover all fo the blue. so now its kind of .. streaky.
should i fix it? leave it?

any suggestions?
(:

I think you should just leave the silver like that, it looks pretty cool Cheesy  It also reminds me of American Idol, at the beginning where it's all blue and there are a bunch of silhouettes.  Good job!

I get that they're people its just a tad hard to see (maybe its your cam or something). If you wanted to make them pop out more you could just define their outline more with that lighter blue

i definitely saw that they were people right away. and i like it the way it is... streaky and patchy. it kinda makes it look like they're out in a foggy but shiny night.. sounds weird, but i know what i mean. kind of magical, i guess. but i definitely love them the way they are!

Leave the silver streaks. i like it. i just saw Xanadu for the first time. This reminds me of that movie. It's very Xanadu-ie magical.

those are really nice.  You could use some rhinestones or glitter for stars.
