Ok here's the pics of the Valentine Hang Tags....There in order of painting. The first picture I have floated the edges of the tags, and then I transfer my pattern. I draw a pattern of my own and then using tracing paper and transfer paper put the design on multiple tags. Once transferred I will begin basecoating the wings, body, and bottom...then I will do his hair. You will see as the pics go on.
Once I have basecoated everything I will proceed to shading to add definition to the little guy. As you can see in his wings I used a French Grey Blue to define the feathers. Then after all floating is done I will add specific details, ie Love and Cupids Bow and arrow. I will also float on the outer right a darker brown to add depth to cupid. You will see as the pics go on.
As you can see in the picture above I have added some Sweet Annie to the Hang tags. This is just something to give the little tags character and more smell. Hope you enjoy if you have any questions please feel free to ask. Have a good evening.
Some how the pics got reversed. I will come back in and fix it. Be patient with me...I'm not a pro at blogging hehe!
