Since my birthday was last week, I’ve been less than excited being 21 now. I don’t know about you, but growing up isn’t all its cracked up to be. In honor of that, I have for you RU-FI-OOOOooooo, accompanied by my design if I were to be a lost girl in the world of Neverland.

“Night, the beloved. Night, when words fade and things come alive. When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again. When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree.”

-Antoine de Saint-Exupery

“But I don’t want to go among mad people,“ Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat, or you wouldn’t have come here.” 
~Lewis Carol, Alice in Wonderland

Here’s the process for my Scorpio piece. The original image can be found here

First I sketched and inked the image. Then after a layer of gel medium, I used aging and cracking varnish to create the aged look. Then added some shoe polish to emphasis the cracking. After I scanned it, I made a few more edits in Photoshop, and there you have it!
