star girl by beckawalley star girl by beckawalley
a stencil i made of my niece, blowing stars into the sky.

i suppose i should explain this more thoroughly. it's all done with a dual action airbrush and acrylic paints. it took around 3 hours in total, including the times i had to go back and try to fix parts i screwed up on. it's all freehand except for the girl and a couple of the star twinkle-y things. the bottoms of the arms were kind of strange, so i photoshopped them to the best of my ability, so if you see weird blotchy things on the arms, that's a tribute to my horrible photoshop skills.

aand thanks for all the lovin' everyone!!
haha this was my final for airbrushing in school and i only got 87.5% (which is pretty darn low if you go to makeup school). in the breakdown, the concept and design was the worst marked out of everything! so all this attention is ridiculously surprising and it makes me very happy. i'm totally telling my teacher how awesome i am :P and i'm setting up a print account right now, so you know, i'll totally take your money if i can figure out how the hell to do this.
thank youuu<3

This was when I was attending classes for makeup, so they provided a photographer and set up. I'm not quite sure what he used, sorry!

You should make this into a teeshirt design on Threadless. It wouldn't be as cool as body paint, but if it was a shirt, I could wear it, and that would be nice.
