Our Favorite creation

Today, over at Scrapper's Delights, we are reminiscing our favorite DT creations.
While I had only a couple months with SD,
 I had given Janice a card just before beginning with her.
This is my favorite
Janice had an awesome giveaway with most of her new release collection
and this was just one of those.
She is Vampire Witch
Hope you love her as much as I do.

Steampunk Christmas

Happy December
It's that time again when MIC is offering a spot on the Facebook Design Team.
I sooo want that spot Zoe ;)
 
This time, there's a twist. We've got to use the FB current sketch. 
 
 
I love this. Took all the guesswork out of the design. 
I've joined together Annabelle and the Carriage of Love
Colored with Copics
The bow is a svg freebie
A couple gears in place of the snowflakes. 
The pebbles were added from a tutorial Zoe provided a while back.
 
 
Here's a close up of the image 
 
gears
 
and the paper bow
 
Hope you enjoyed my project. This was so much fun to do. 
I'm entering her into MIC FB Challenge
(I'll try do one for the hard challenge ;)  Hopefully will have time to get another done.)

muscle tone

Note: please scroll to bottom for challenge entry

At Make it Crafty, Zoe is having a challenge to use a "new" skin tone and to challenge ourselves, add muscle tone.
This seems to be a scary task.  I'm no muscle expert but my darling hubs is a fitness junky. As easy as it was for me to visualize how the muscles should be, transferring to paper was not so easy.
As I've chosen a darker skin tone, it became more difficult to get the results without going too dark.
So I've decided to do a step by step, so to speak, of how the tones are achieved.

Starting with the arms. One of Desiree's arms is held up by her face. Similar to the position of this lady. The woman is not actually flexing to create a sharp muscle so this is perfect example of typical muscle tone appearance on a small/medium frame

http://skinnyms.com/summer-arms-challenge/

 If you look a Desiree's arm in that position, the muscle cut will appear from her armpit angling down around the "belly" rounded  part of the bicep. There will be a slight definition from the elbow area rounding out the bicep at the top arm


Desiree's arm that is down, will have a very sharp, thin definition from the shoulder muscle. I would recommend using the tip of a pencil to achieve this line. If using pencil, remember to do so after using your copics as the wax can clog the nib
http://idrawgirls.com/tutorials/2011/10/25/draw-arm-muscles-front-view/
http://www.muscleandstrength.com/articles/womens-body-bible.htmlIn this image, the woman's arms are more defined than Desiree but it will give a better idea of how the muscle can appear. As does the sketch to the left

http://atelierpoupee.blogspot.com/2011/12/thoughts-on-modeling-legs-n-2.htmlmybodyhealth.net/page/20/In the leg, the quadriceps is the prominent muscle one will see more defined. It's going to be oval or elongated from the top leg then curving in at the knee. the image on the left is a great one to demonstrate this area at the knee.

Then, you would go in adding the shadows and more subtle definitions as seen the lighter shading.
http://edinaus.deviantart.com/art/Girl-Muscle-Arms-Crossed-269702904And if you really want to beef up your character, here's some inspiration for that :)


Here's my finished image of Desiree. I will get her carded, up and ready with a better picture soon.
I hope this has helped ease your worries a bit. 
As this was my first tutorial, I'd be thrilled if you'd leave some feedback or tips for future posts.
Thanks for stopping by.

Card added 11/12/13
Here's is my finished card
A nontraditional but totally cool Christmas Card


 
 
Colored in copics with prisma pencil. MS punch, other items from stash and my second go round with my new cutter :)  Still working on that...
Happy Holidays All
