These are a very you concept. Ecclectic and intellectual. Very cute.

If someone ever made such a wonderful present for me, I'd probably marry them. :P

Really though, these are great! Awesome work! Did you airbrush the yellowish color first, and then paint the rest, or is it all just painted?

:iconjeffquinn:
jeffquinn Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2007
that's the idea.

and yeah, the vignetting is all painted.

thanks :)
