Also, some of you are probably too young for this one. If that's true, please don't tell me. I'm almost a quarter of a century old and I'm cranky about it. I feel there's probably some sort of sick irony in all of that, but I don't want to hear about that, either.
Let's talk Zipper! He's from the Rescue Rangers, which starred Chip and Dale. If you don't know who they are, I can't help you (my, I'm awfully cranky today, aren't I?).

Okay, enough waxing nostalgic. Here's the look. I was trying to go for a shimmery sheen, like a fly's wings. And teal blue, because Zipper is blue (and because Laura requested it! Never say I don't listen!).

|Erm, so yeah, those are supposed to be fly wings! Except when you look at my eyes like this, it looks like a fish. Or a whale. Oops. All in all, I'm not really pleased with this look, but Zipper is so cute, I had to feature him.|
|I was trying to give the wings that gauzy, gossamer effect, but that's um, hard.|
Emancipation Grid is a gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous color. I need to use this one more often. That is one of the great things about doing this series; I need to pull out all kinds of colors, and I am forced to shop my stash, as they say. I foiled the colors in this look with a wet brush - it really does bring out the strength of colors! I was completely amazed. And I thought, "Why don't I do this more often?"
Oh right. Because I'm lazy and I don't like to use more than one brush, and if my brush is wet, I'll need another one. Plus dipping a wet brush into a pot of shadow just makes me feel kind of icky, and I don't always have time to tap some out on a paper towel or whatever.
Okay, go check out Tracy's look! Also, if you have any cartoon character ideas, let me know!
