Art It Up! - Elsa (DA)

Art It Up! is a weekly feature hosted by Tabitha @ Not Yet Read.
Ta-da! Meet digital art Elsa! I've seen other people do similar work, but with really pretty watercolor brushes (and a better sense of the color wheel), but this was a fun little exercise. I used Pixlr's free online editor, which only has so many options, but I kind of like the results I got with this set of brushes. Not sure I remember how to replicate it though... *fail* Which one do you guys like better? I'm leaning toward the blues, but the pink version is more dynamic.
If anyone's interested in giving it a shot, find a photo of a character, preferably with no or little background (so it's easy to get rid of), select pixels, create a new layer and splatter-brush away! I used multiple layers for the different brush colors so it was easy to kill anything that wasn't working or adjust the opacity to tone down certain shades.
And there you have it! Easy enough any doodler can give it a try and have splattery, new artwork for a kid's room in half an hour. One last word of advice: pick a base piece with a readily recognizable character/pose. :)
