2011 Bellies!

Post by Kristal on Wed Apr 27, 2011 8:38 pm

I had a very last minute call to arms for bellies and photographers to replace my Cat in the Hat belly for promo cards, and I had my first of 2 for the week, today!

I have NEVER done so little prep for a belly before...(this is belly #6) I sent out messages on Thursday/Friday last week, and finalized the time for todays, yesterday, haha. This was the photographer's client, so I only knew that it's their first child and a girl, and had a couple of quick pencil sketches for them (no time to add colour to the sketches!) - and they wanted to go with the rose/butterfly design, which I've a seen a few different variations for, on FPF.

I *am* pleased that this took 1.5 hours of taking my sweet time - better than a couple of 4.0 hour sessions I've done before!



She was sitting here, and when she stood the painting dropped to a beautiful oval shape...can't wait for the professional photos!

Watch this space for Friday's belly!

Thank you, ladies! I love painting bellies, and the fact that a paper and pencil sketch is so different than brush and skin, that something as simple with a brush as dots and starbursts don't come across the same way with a pencil, so the final product blows their minds Razz

Oh, and Darlene, that reminds me - a couple events ago I heard some girls comment, "wow! She paints really good dots!" and it just cracked me up!

Beautiful!!! I love all the swirlies & dots! They enhance it sooo well!
It reminds me of the belly I did on Whitney at our July 4th Festival! It was a 5 minute design & an old lady looked at her and actually said, "Disgusting." Everyone else loved it!

Haha, thanks for the love, loveys! I tend to take your feedback and comments more to heart than those from non-painters, since we know what to 'look for,' so to speak - so thank you I love you

Thanks Lonnie!

Here's a peek at today's belly, while I wait for proofs from the pro photos...I am mildly obsessed with dots right now, haha.

Beautiful as your work always is Kristal. I have to ask you, is there a difference in brushes when you make dots? Are some kind of brushes better than others? With some of mine the dots are a little better, but what kind of brush do you prefer Smile. I would really like to be able to make nice dots! *G*

Thank you Kathy, Lilly and Lonnie Smile

Lonnie, sometimes it's just whatever brush is in my hand Razz Usually my #4 or #6 La Corneille rounds, or my #4 Mark Reid round. Any smaller and I can't vary the sizes as much, and any larger I find all the paint gets sucked up and doesn't stay at the tip of the brush.

If my white is a touch on the thick-watery side (does that make sense? Like dippy-pot consistency, I'd imagine) and my brush is loaded up well, 99% of the time dots turn out great - and the 1% is nothing that can't be fixed with another dab Smile

Hope that helps!

Whoops - totally missed these. Lol.

Thanks Carolyn and Tazzle! And sheesh - some people! What a tool. I painted a bald head with the 'Nux logo at a birthday yesterday - I think just about every adult in the room took a photo - then we won the game!

Pro photos!



...ok, I've tried to dl the 2nd one 3 times and it keeps going to 99% then disappearing...bunk. Maybe later
