Decided to update my pencil sketch digitally.

Caught my second Civil Wars’ gig last Wednesday and it was hypnotising.
The March theme for the Collective Thinking blog is ‘Zombies’
Okay, so it’s more the zombie hunter than the ACTUAL zombies, but you say ‘zombie’ & I hear ‘Zombieland’ 😀 The idea of putting Emma Stone’s red hair against something dark was appealing…plus it’s Emma Stone haha!
(Belated) post for February’s Collective Thinking theme http://collectivethinkingblog.blogspot.com/2012/03/things-that-protect-you-at-night_09.html
I’ve been going back to basics and avoiding my MacBook Pro a lot lately and I’m loving it. I’d forgotten what it’s like to try and make a marker last ’till the entire background is coloured in, haha. Anyway, I’d given up on submitting anything for this month’s post until I heard the familiar sound of the Garda Horses passing my bedroom window. I wanted to do something different to my usual stuff (whether that worked or not is up for debate though) so I broke out the marker and coloured pencils. I messed about with the levels a wee bit after scanning and darkened the black (’cause thanks to the aforementioned marker-wastage it was a tad patchy), but aside from that it’s 100% traditional.
