13 Days of Creepmas with Rick St. Dennis - Day 11
Welcome to Day 11 of the 13 Days of Creepmas with Rick St. Dennis. I've got a real surprise for you today! Okay, maybe you won't be surprised! But I put this off so long with all of the elements done, just because I was afraid to try printing on tissue paper, that I am surprised I ever got up the nerve to try it.
My concept of Sad Frosty the very first time I saw him wasn't mayhem but an ice cream headache, specifically a snow ice cream headache. Maybe because I get a lot of those! I made the barely visible background with a quick sketch of hills plus Photoshop gradients and brushes. It was what was holding me up printing on tissue paper. It is on the outside of the glass window block. Frosty and a few lights are inside. The ice cream cone was made out of polymer clay. I had no idea how it would photograph but was so pleased with the yellow tones I got that all I added was a simple title, some snowflakes (brushes by meldir_ snowflakes) and a prefab Photoshop border!
I hope you're not creeped out by the total lack of creepiness in this post. The blogroll is on the right and you'll get to see more Creepmas if you follow along. --->
