BBQ Bart …

Summer is the time our family grill out quite a bit at our house or at friends’ houses. I’ve been looking for a fun card for such grilling events – either to thank our friends for having us over or to invite them to our house.  BBQ Bart that Crissy Armstrong has drawn is so perfect. So here he is.

I have always colored Bart with Copic markers – but my coloring of him has always been rather flat. Recently, I found that Crissy actually did an amazing tutorial on her website about how she created scales on Bart and her coloring of Bart is absolutely divine. So I’m going to try and give Bart some life by trying out Crissy’s blender pen scales effect. I hope it brings some justice to Crissy’s awesome illustration.

And don’t forget to try out for Crissy’s Team – click here for more info.

I love coloring Bart so much I decided to color him again – in pink – just to see if he looked nice as a girl (sorry Crissy, I changed his gender). And this time, I also gave him a pina colada. Here he/she is …
