Ghouls ROCK!

Halloween Candy up for some Trick or Treater... Click HERE!
Hello everyone! 
     I hope that you are all having a Ghoul old time with my Halloween cards.  :O)  Let me warn you ahead of time that this might be a longer than usual post as I really want to share this with you all.
     I don't know what got into me when I got home tonight, but I was trying to look for a specific digi image that I have on my PC when I came across this ADORABLE image that I am almost positive I got off of a sight called 'Deviant Art' last year.  I am so so sorry to the artist that drew this image, I  wasn't able to make out the signature on it, so I am going to try my best tomorrow when I get home to research it for you all.  I want to make sure that credit is given where credit is due.  At any rate, I just could not resist printing her out and coloring her.  The only thing is, as you will soon see I must have been  in a crazy mood or something as I decided that instead of just a cute teenager listening to her music that she needed to be an undead. Yes, a ZOMBIE!  lol.,.. I just don't know what happened.  I swear I don't watch anything zombie or even half way scary.  I hate, and I do mean hate,  the move 'The Wizard of Oz' for goodness sakes, but I will confess that I just let loose and went for this one.  I had the best time just coloring her and the more I got into it the more I really wanted her to look undead.
     As I was determined to make this girl into a Zombie I remembered that my blogging friend Amy  has made a couple of videos on Zombie/Vampire skin combos using your Copic markers, so I headed over to here and was able to come up with this little gals skin.  :O)    While I was busy giving her a very bad skin condition my DD suggested that she needed to have red eyes as according to her the blood pools and turns them a reddish brown color.  (!!!?????!!!) I don't know...  :O)  Well, as fate would have it,  Amy also has a great video on how to get the most out of your red Copics.  Click here to check it out. I just know that you will enjoy that video as well.
     Lastly, you might have suspected that once upon a time she might have been a blond, but since she has been dead  her hair has kind of mildewed, hence the greenish tint to it.  :O)  I truly am sorry for the long post, but WOW what fun I had with this. I guess I have a somewhat dark side to me after all.  Baa ha ha ...
     So, before I let you go (if your still here) I do know  'NOW'   that my sentiment says ROCKS! and I have already fixed it, I just didn't feel like pulling everything back out to retake the picture. :O(  If you were to see my desk at the moment you would totally understand. 
     Well guys, I have taken up enough of your time for one night so I will wish you all a great day tomorrow.  Talk at you later.  :O) 
Hugs, Lisa G

Sammy said...

Brilliant! My daughter is also obsessed with zombies, so at least in the event of a zombie apocalypse she'll be able to tell me what to do, lol.

Love this card though and with the zombie-mania going on at the moment, it would make a great card for most teens, I think! x
