    Oh, yeah, prismacolors are expensive. Sometimes they go on sale, that's the only way I was able to get them. (And I only got a set of 8 or 12 I think) I would give them to you but I'm awful at sending things in the mail. I have a whole box of planner stuff for @April@April that I haven't sent yet.

    Can you buy one and see if you like it? I'm not sure if Michael's sells them in singles like they do the pencils.

    can't decide the color of the unicorn/girl's dress. I'm thinking blue or purple. (Because blue is the opposite of orange, and yellow vs purple. (IIRC))

    I meant to ask :D And thanks. I'm trying something weird right now with pretty paper but if it doesn't work out I'm gonna have to figure out blue/purple.

    Or both :eek:

    The scrap book paper didn't work because I keep messing it up, so I did a little test with purple blue, I think it looks cool :eek:
    [​IMG]

    I'm worried it's too much fading overall though. Like the hair fades, then the dress too?

    edit: I did a test and it didn't look quite right, so I'm gonna figure out a solid color for them. Maybe blue for one and purple for the other so it doesn't end up a big blob

    I think it looks really good! but if you want the hair to be the focus point then yeah, it kind of detracts from it. I think doing them different colors would be good too

    I should've taken a picture of it, but I did a little test on a protector sheet with a marker and when both dress and unicorn were faded it ended up looking kind of blobby because it lost some of the definition between dress/unicorn body. The only other solution that i could think of would be to make them opposite fades. (Unicorn = Blue to purple , Dress purple to blue)

    The name of the picture is "Like You" so I wanted them to be matchy.

    edit: Or I could make them both purple to blue, but diffeerent shades :eek: idk, I think my brain is getting more complicated than my actual skills XD

    I made the wrong choice. I tried to fix it though. The different shades would have been the right choice I think.

    I realize now I should have completely inverted the two. one with purple/blue hair and one with flamey hair and then the dress/body opposite.

    Great time to realize it now that I'm done and didn't scan/copy this one.

    edit: Forgot to attach the picture, lol

    Can I post my 3D artwork in here too? It's artful, just not drawing, coloring, or painting.
