Doing MY FIRST Belly on this Friday......(Update) I DID IT!!!!

Post by ChangingFaceDesigns on Tue Jun 07, 2011 10:56 pm

I am super excited. She is 7 1/2 months so no way this one is gonna go into labor on me...lololol The baby's name is going to be Christian Lee Billingsly, the first boy in long time for eiher side of the family. The colors of the shower are blue and yellow and the theme is ducks.

My dilemma......

I don't wish to do anything too realistic looking duckwise or setting wise. Don't want it to look like a page out of National Geographic or animal kingdom.

But I don't want it to be overtly cartoonish either.

Thoughts on how to strike a happy balance would be appreciated.

The person paying for this is giving this as a gift at the baby shower the following weekend. The expectant mom will not see the photos until she unwraps them at the shower.

Well I did my first bump this evening. I just realized when I made the original post I had my Fridays mixed up.

Well the belly is done, but it almost didn't happen. The expectant faher was not at all thrilled about the idea and did not want the mom to be to do it. She explained this had been purchased as a gift and that the photo would be presented at the shower next weekend. For a while i didn't think he was gonna change his mind, but he did and i got right to work before he could have a change of heart.

She was absolutely floored over it, because she had never seen one and until this point had never heard of this kind of thing being done.

The theme was duckies and her colors blue and yellow. She had also asked me to find a way to tie her daughter into the design.

I took lots of pics, but she will not see the final photo until she unwraps it at the shower so it will be a surprise for everyone even the person who paid me to do it.

I will try to get the pics up before I go to bed. I have a very busy day tomorrow with an early start in the a.m.

For my 1st time out the gate I am more than pleased. Not even gonna get into all that I now see wrong with it, because after it almost being squashed i am just glad I got to do it. I had to wing it since I had procrastinated so much about doing a preliminary design....that I actually never did one. So here it is.............

While I was glad that I got the chance to do one and I was okay with how it turned out, I don't know that I would do another one. I felt sooooo out of my element. IDK maybe because it was the first and the added pressure of the dad not being on board. I found it harder to do this a relatively flat surface, than doing a face with curvatures and indentations and such. People always say stick to what you know.

Painting faces and arms and necks comes second nature to me.... This not so much.

Well if for nothing else I can at least say I had the experience. I just hope she and the father will be overjoyed when it is presented. I won't get to see the all the reactions at the shower, as I am booked to do a festival that weekend

That's sooo cute. You did a fab job with all those added pressures!! Specially being your first too. I don't really get why someone would be so against getting that done??? Oh well, you came up trumps! I'm sure they'll be happy with it.
