I have another tutorial posted over at Make it Crafty Blog today and this one was in request by Alyce who wanted to see how I had colored my last night time sky.  I've merged Ashlyn and Hollywood Sign together from Make it Crafty and came up with a little scene to work on.

All sorts of crazy ideas were going through my demented mind as I was coloring this image and trying to think of the true meaning behind it.  I was originally going for a glamorous model with the Hollywood Sign which would represent movies and fame but after reading about the history of the sign, I couldn't keep my mind from wandering.  LOL 

I could have colored the hair blond then I could have made some reference to Holli Would from Cool World.  Maybe it's a tribute to Hugh Hefner, founder of Playboy magazine, since he donate over $127,700 dollars to preserve the sign.  Perhaps if I had drawn a little body underneath the 'H' then it could be a tribute to the Broadway actress Peg Entwistle who committed suicide - morbid, I know.  Oh, I know - maybe this is a later version of "SUSAN" from Monsters vs Aliens after she grows her hair out for a photo shoot!  He he he

Anyway, I hope you get a chance to see the tutorial over on the MiC blog and that it helps a little.  Both images are a fun to color and an odd combination, I know.  Thanks for coming by!
