So I work for my sister, sewing frilly lacy girly clothes. I wanted a break and took a few afternoons (and late nights) to do my own version this image by Dmitri G. Pavlov - dpavlov on DA (look him up!!) called 'Russian Fairy Tale'. I'm obsessed with Russian culture, and have loved this photo for a while (it's at the bottom of my post). I changed some things, like the fullness of the dress and her jewelry, as well as her hair-hat. I also didn't like the weird position of the light she's 'holding' in the original so I added a necklace for her to toy with.

I used black pen, a pinch of Sharpie (which died all too soon), black acrylic, and glittery nailpolish! Yes, nailpolish. First I sketched her basic shape, then pit by bit painted her face and torso. Sometimes I used pen for smaller details, and the cross hatching in her dress. I put glitter over every black thing on her, but left her border plain black. You should see how it catches the sunlight!

Final Closeup (it's huge!)

I'm a nerdy flourescent curvaceous artistic musical lover of life and personal swaps.

I could make that for you, but I won't.
