Okay, first, allow me a brief pregnant-lady rant: so, non-alcoholic beer? It’s not good. One of my husband’s friends had a beer-tasting party last weekend, and I went anyway, and brought some different near-beers so I could taste-test those, and…yeah, they were crap. I love a good beer, especially in the summer, and these just tasted like weird, bitter, vegetable-soup-flavored sodas.
But then, that was just O’Doul’s, St. Pauli NA, and Kaliber (the one that’s made by Guinness…still not good, not vegetable-y, but sort of cinnamon-coffee-ish in a bad way). What’s a good non-alcoholic beer that tastes somewhat real, internets?! I need help.
Other than that, we’ve been having some nice days, so I’ve been using my back porch “office” some more…
This was so fun. 🙂 It’s done using the same technique as the Easter eggs where I drew the shapes in Illustrator, then brought them over to Photoshop and layered watercolor texture on top.
Here’s the shapes without texture, which I also kinda like, although it’s plainer:
And here’s the “sketch” I initially did in Photoshop with my Wacom. Very rough, very ugly, but hey, it’s part of the process.
I’d also done a pencil thumbnail sketch in a sketchbook, but I was too lazy to scan it in so I just redrew it in Photoshop instead. 😛 It initially had a bathing suit on the girl, with just a strap slipping off to show her sunburn, but I thought it would look clearer and more striking with no suit on.
