THINKING........ and WISHING......

This wonderful digital illustration is available from New collection from FITZTOWN CHALLENGE BLOG.
it's a wonderful soft image that can have a wide range of scope when it comes to our crafting.
This image along with a wonderful selection of other Mystical Imagery is from CRAFTS BY FITZTOWN [ART FIRE.COM].

For this project i decided to go softer and use muted colours.. okay the hair is a bit on the bright side but i thought it gave a nice balance and interest.

This project was all done using my graphics tablet [if you would like to explore digital illustration to a high level then l do make a small suggestion that you can if possible invest in a graphics tablet. They come in all shapes and sizes as well as prices. i have one that cost a few pounds that's used when i'm on the road, the one i use when i'm at home cost just under £200 but l paid for what at that time i could afford.

if i ever win the lotto then i already have my eyes on the tablet i would like.. and that one could cost me almost £2000's so as you can see there are tablet that allow you to do this kind of illustrative work and not break the bank. All i can suggest is RESEARCH..... RESEARCH and then some more.

Y-Tube is a wonderful place for looking into this kind of tool, there are hundreds of people who are willing to share their knowledge with you.

I can highly recommend a visit to Crafts By Fitztown to explore what they can give to you for your crafting projects at a price that's just right for your pocket. They don't just have Mystical and Magical imagery they have a wide range of digital images to fit any project you may want to do.
