on to the next one

man, nothin like the new Jay-Z album to get u pumped!

at any rate, i finished it! Zatanna is done! i tried my hand at some art nouveau stuff (which i can barely spell as it is). i'm a big fan of Alphonse Mucha stuff and this is my first attempt. try not to look at it too long cuz then all the flaws come poppin out. i'll keep workin on it to see if i can make a better attempt.
the first one is the finished colors as is. the second is what i plan on making for the print to sell. i desaturated it a bit so that the colors aren't so jarring and somewhat has that older look. the background was done solely in photoshop with shapes and erasing shapes with brushes. it was a lot harder than it looks to decide the different shapes in there. as i said, its my first attempt so it's not perfect. heck i'm not even sure i'm in love with it but whatever. if i didn't stop, i'd have overdone it more than i have already.
i also just finished a harley quinn commission but i won't post it till i send it to the client. hopefully, with permission, i can color it and have that as a print as well. i've been given a list of characters to draw by the hubby so i guess i gotta get started. these ladies won't draw themselves. ;P

that's what i really wanna do! but i'm so afraid that they won't turn out like i'd like and i'd be so ashamed of em that they'll never see the light of day. but that's the whole point of trial and error, right? =/
