So, I've had this pair of all-white high top converse for about a year now (I got them only for the purpose of coloring all over them), and they've just been sitting in a corner of my room (I still haven't even laced them!).

Before:


When I finally got around to cleaning my room today, I found them again and decided that it was time I did something with them...so I colored Van Gogh's "Starry Night" onto one side of one of them!


With black outlines:



After:




They're definitely not finished yet (I want to do more doodling!! haha), but I thought I'd share with you guys Smiley

(Any suggestions for what else I should draw on them?  I want to put some red on them, and I think I'm gonna stick with the Van Gogh theme)


(by the way, I had had the idea to do Starry Night on something, but this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39446.0 was what really motivated me to start this Smiley)

Wow, oh, wow. That's MAJORLY impressive. And I'm not impressed easily. I think it would be really awesome to wear that with the skirt. And make a shirt with Starry Night on it, lol. That would be too hardcore for words.

Those are STUNNING. Thanks for posting those, the preliminary sketch pic gives me a good idea of how to do similar things to achieve the effect I'm going for. Amazing.

PART TWO!!
(haha)

So, I got bored, and I decided to do more tonight.
I colored another Van Gogh ("Poppies") onto the tongue of the first converse I'd already started

In pencil:



A little color:



Completed:



Shoe so far:



Oh, and here's what "Poppies" looks like, if you haven't seen it before--http://www.globalgallery.com/images/isi-y677.jpg

Awe. Some.
It seems the Van Gogh phrase is catching on, there's skirts, pants, shoes... what next?
I must have chucks. Apparently, there are lots (fake, mind you) in Fiji for a few dollars. I must buy hundreds of pair(s?) and go crazy.
I'm loving the shoes, btw.
