From there, you will learn how to draw the rest of the figure and put it into a unique, textured, mixed-media background.
—Learn to design costumes and personalities for your girls and adapt them to fit your own artistic style.
—Create vivid, exciting backgrounds by layering paint, collaging with fabric, carving beeswax, distressing wood, and building up texture with mediums and pastes.
—And on the accompanying DVD-ROM, which you can play on your Mac or PC, there is a mini-workshop full of whimsical mayhem, motivation, and real-time video with Suzi Blu showing you detailed drawing and shading techniques for faces, beeswax finishes, and how to make a mixed-media art journal start to finish.
