Booked for a major event....HELP!!!

Post by Skidzz on Mon Apr 11, 2011 7:57 pm

Hey all!!! I just was hoping for some help, and I knew this was the place I could get it, cuz you all are soooo friendly, incredibly kind, and well just amazing!! cheers I have been a FP for about 20 years now, but I have not ever done a MAJOR event. This happens to be at a citywide Easter egg hunt albino that they are expecting over 1000 people to attend. affraid They are putting over $900 worth of cash in the eggs so I think there is probably going to be a ton of people! I am not the fastest painter, and my composition usually stinks, I would appreciate some ideas for really quick ideas! Oh and I forgot to mention that its a PPF type event. They called me, mostly because I am the only FP in my county. My county has at least 6 towns, and 1 major city. The city is where the event is going to be. Needless to say I am a bit overwhelmed at the moment! affraid scratch But extremely excited!!!! cheers

This is what I have so far, please let me know what you think! And any ideas you might have to help me out would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!! Oh and because its a major citywide event I am getting about 4 weeks of free publicity from it, several weeks before and after the event. So I want to put my best foot forward!!! HELP!!!

Hey Skidzz, like Angela said, breath and relax, you did a wonderful job. The full face bunny is great and the ears are right on. I also like the little bunny on your hand and the flower design.
You are going to do fantastic!

Thank you guys for all your kind words!!! I was happy with the bunny, here is a question???? The bunnies... should I do the teeth or not??? Like alot of you I don't like to add the teeth, but does it look like a bunny without???

Here are a couple other bunnies.... what do you think???

Thank you all for your kindness!!!

You are one smart cookie Smile that bunny with the bone poking out is too cool.
The very 1st picture I think it looks like a bunny without the teeth because you did such a great job with the ears and you added the whiskers, the teeth usually get all smeared up.

yeah the smearing is why I really don't like to do the teeth!!! But if you think it looks ok without I am glad!!! I wasn't sure about the whiskers, so I'll add them!!! Thank you guys!!!! This is helping soooooo much!!!! *:hugs:*

It went great!!! The event was freezing cold but there were at least 50 people in line until about 1/2 hour after the event was over.... The last person I painted was a teenager... she was so cute she asked for a full face...
