Calves Of The Corn

Aaron had a great birthday, got to see a ton of people and picked up some more Halloween/FX supplies. :) And I'm finishing off The Week of the Cow with my entry into the Polish Yer Hooves Giveaway. Admittedly I've never seen Children of the Corn, but I get the gist of it. Aaron watched part of it a few nights ago while I was falling asleep and inspiration hit! Cows and corn go together like peas and carrots! And so was born Calves Of The Corn!



Moo? lol Okay okay we all know I suck at art. Still, it very nearly came out exactly the way I pictured it.



I started with two coats of essence Catwalk Pink (swatch post for that coming tomorrow). I drew on the shadowy cow figures with Zoya Evvie and Noot, using a dotting tool. Finishing those off with essence Divalicious Red for their evil glowing eyes.



Next I sponged on some spooky fog with Julep Annette then added the cornstalks in China Glaze Tree Hugger.



Stuck on some little corns with China Glaze Solar Power, little more fog, matte topcoat and voila!



Calves of the Corn. Do I think it's a winner? Not after seeing the super cute and skillfully drawn zombie cow. o_O But that's okay. I had fun coming up with this idea and trying (even mildly successfully) to pull it off. I hope you enjoy it as well. (^_^)"/" Take care, everybody!

    1. They can be both. ;) Interesting note: on the Zoya website Evvie and Noot are both counted as greens.... >_>
