I had waaay too much fun making these. Greg says they look like cel-shaded masks, which is exactly what I was going for.
Ammy! Whee! I wanted to capture the swirly brush-strokes in those wing patterns. I know the game-version has a simpler face, but I just had to include those wing elements because they look SO cool.
See? Fun fun. :-)
Anyhoo, that's what I've been making for the last couple of days.
In other news; I know now without a shadow of doubt that I am old, because I am VERY excited about the new king-size bed we're supposed to get this weekend. SO happy. :-) Though I've been warned that when you get the king size bed you quit snuggling with the significant other...I guess it's a common phenomenon. All you get is a sprawly leg-touch and that's it. More than one person has warned me about this. I'm willing to lose the occasional snuggle in exchange for the ability to reclaim my territory. Greg is a horrible pillow-stealing sprawler, so I'm thinkin' a little extra room won't hurt. :-)
And (I'm afraid to announce it, in fear of jinxing the situation further) we should close on the house this Friday. Finally. I hope. Thwarted in August by a sump inspection certificate, in September by a title search, and in October by a freak storm that shut down the entire region for two weeks. Crap! Guess we'll see. If the entire state of New York suddenly implodes in a flaming ball of doom, you'll know it's just 'cause I was getting a little too close to actually closing on this house.
So wish me luck. Next time I yap at you I should be a home owner. Again. Maybe.
