More Scary Art  
My drawing of Scary Fear for the hood is finally finished. Check this out.



I'm quite happy with it and if it prints as good as this looks I'll have a great thing going.

But there are still some issues. Here's what it will look like on the hood.



I'm having the problem of the hood bumpers and that loop covering him. He's not centered or the loop would be on his face. I don't mind so much his wings covered by the round bumpers but I'm not sure what to do about it. I can remove them from the hood but I worry about there being holes and water condensation getting into my engine and then ruining the decal too. There are some flat bumpers I could get but don't now if the sticker will stick to them as it won't be a smooth surface and again I worry about water condensation getting in and causing bubbling. This is most annoying. The drawing has to be off center so it's not on his face and then I'll have to puncture it to put these things back on. So far I don't see a way to keep them off.

Well you guys may know the background was giving me a hard time. I downloaded some cloud brushes today. I found this great site called Brusheezy. https://www.brusheezy.com/ It's too bad that sometimes these brush packs come with way more brushes than I need. I have tons of brushes in my photoshop right now and really need to get rid of the ones I never use. But I'm glad I found some cloud ones as I've just been using the same cloud ones over and over and I'm getting tired of my stuff looking the same.

I had to take Sandwich to the vet today. Bullet bit him the other day. It was a small bite in his side and I didn't think anything of it. But he started picking it and it got way worse and all infected.



I had the idea to make a vest out of Vet Wrap since the collars they had were too big. There was a love bird collar but it was still too big. My vet loved this idea and said she will order a smaller collar and to use this little vest until then. He got a shot of antibiotics and a bottle to put in his drinking water. He kept putting his feet in the vest so he couldn't walk but was flopping around the floor of the cage. I knew he was just being dramatic. I put the perch low and eventually I guess he got bored because now he's standing like in the pic and using his feet normally.

Well that's been the biggest excitement today. I'm going to stop here as I'm rather sleepy.

I really love your pic. It's like, 'Look out, here I come!' I see you went with the bird feet in the end. I like them! I dunno. I thought his tongue would be pink, for some reason. (Green transforming into pink. It would match the glow behind his eyes and in the background. Or is that purple or magenta?) I'm not sure what to do with the bumpers, but I'm sure you'll figure something out.

Well, that's a bummer that Bullet bit Sandwich the other day and now it's all infected. But that was a neat idea of your's and he seems to be used to it, now. I hope he gets better soon.

He's about to land on someone and scare them. Definitely. Yes everyone said bird feet were best and I think I agree with them. I had a purple tongue originally and it just did not fit with the new mouth color. I think the glow is a magenta. More on the pink side than the purple side. Yeah I'm sure I'll think of something.

I think he will recover in time. We'll see how it goes.

Heh, heh. Good ole Scary Fear. Doing what he does best :)

Hmmm...so the purple tongue didn't look right. You already tried it. I might have known :P

I'm sure Sandwich will heal over time. I have a sick chook at the moment :(

I hope you can figure out how to get around those bumpers.

Poor Sandwich having to wear a collar, but the little vest you made him is cute and matches his colors. That was mean of Bullet to bite him. She must have gotten him pretty hard for him to pick it.

Yeah me too. I'm not quite sure what to do at the moment with them.

I have no idea why she decided to bite him and in such a weird place. Darn Bullet.

Poor little Sandwich! He looks cute in the little vest though :-)
Desthagirion on May 21st, 2017 05:39 pm (UTC)
Yeah sucks this happened but he does look cute this way.

My, mye, the final product has some impressive lightning to it, and the cloud also turned out nicely. Definitely a great hood painting, as you definitely have something with the right colors and impressive detail to it. And with your new grille, and the eep, your Jeep is now ascending into a new tier of awesomeness.

Meanwhile Bullet mistook Sandwich for a sandwich again. Poor boy, he definitely got it bad with that infected wound. But the vest does look nice, even if he hates it.
Desthagirion on May 21st, 2017 05:39 pm (UTC)
Thank you. I am very very happy with it. Oh yes my Jeep will definitely be unique once this is done. It's already starting to get its own personality. Could you please comment on the DA upload. It could use some comments.

Yes I think she did. Poor thing. And he's been tearing it off so I think I have to tape it back up everyday. This will be annoying.
audes_ljaudes_lj on May 21st, 2017 07:45 pm (UTC)
Will do. I may take a few minutes after this post here is done.

Scary Fear looks great, though rather annoying that those bumpers on the hood would get in the way. Nice that you downloaded some brushes for the background as well. I hope Sandwich will recover soon.

Sorry for the late reply. Thanks. yeah I need to talk to the guys at the print place about that. I might be going out there today. We'll see. It's nice having useful brushes. Yeah I think he will be ok.
rollertroller: Master Fiendishrollertroller on May 23rd, 2017 04:53 pm (UTC)
That's ok, and it's nice to hear that you'd be going to talk to the people about it today as well as hearing that Sandwich will be alright.
