Here's a close up of my chalked girl fae. -- again, the colors are enhanced a bit with photoshop. Does that mean I'm cheating?

Lol, nah it's not cheating, it's 'enhancing the picture for the betterment of others.'

wow look at all the colors in her dress! And her wings! Ah she so cute! Kawaii!!

1 Glo 'the Bug' Bowden replies: "Kawaii! That's something I haven't heard in a long time! 1 Thanks Catrina! -- I had a lot of fun making her wings -- they were my favorite part...well, I enjoyed the whole thing, but coming up with cool wing designs is fun to the max! ^_^"

*First comment "And All That Jazz"*

That's not cheating! I have to darken my drawings on the computer all the time because the scanner makes them too light. Oh well. 1

This is so cute! She's PRECIOUS!!

:-) Glo 'the Bug' Bowden replies: ""I'm gonna rouge my knees and roll my stockings down -- and all that Jazz!"

Thanks Em! --the colors really do look better when they're enhanced, but they don't look like this at all in real life. in real life they're duller and softer and just plain harder to see. This enhancing method I use brings the pictures to life I think."

I think I know who she's dreaming of. She has such an adorable expression on her face. *sigh*

I love the candy-hued colors and the enhancement is an artist's tool, just like any other. It's how you use it that counts and you did a great job on this sweety.

:-) Glo 'the Bug' Bowden replies: "I almost get the feeling she's gonna open one eye and catch him peeping. --He panicks. -- The mushroom breaks. --Much blushing and giggling ensues from both parties. Yeah. 2 "

She looks so sweet in her sleeping state... so sweet and somewhat pink...

She's so cuuute! 18 I love her wings to death!!! I can never draw wings right. -_-|||

:-) Glo 'the Bug' Bowden replies: "All it takes is a good reference. I ddin't use a reference on these, but I started doing some paintings with wing references, and it helped lots. Now I have fun designing my own wings, even if they aren't realistic looking. "

No no, tweaking colors is OK. Photos and scanners always twist the colors so you're entitled to poke around.
I think you took the photo well, it looks as if she's actually glowing! Purty wings. 18

14 Glo 'the Bug' Bowden replies: "It's just that I adjusted them beyond what they really look like. They're still pretty in their real pastels, but I like them in the more vibrant form I created in photoshop. ^_^' eh, well. I suppose I've been outvoted that this is cheating. 12 "
