Canadian Eyes for CanadaAM by KatieAlves Canadian Eyes for CanadaAM by KatieAlves
So this was done for CanadaAM. It only took me 45 minutes to do (thank GOD!) I had about 2 hours to finish it and then I had to go on LIVE! So it was kind of a lot of pressure! Thankfully because I had practiced it a few times the days before, I knew how to do it! This picture was of the one done the night before, I sadly didn't have my camera for a high quality version for the day of, but it was pretty much the same. I think the C.N Tower was a little wonkier in the CanadaAM one, but MEH!

So in this, starting from the left, we've got the Mountains and a little bit of the ocean. Then it goes to the prairies with a little tractor. Up top we have a little inukshuk and Canada Geese flying above it. After that, on the next eye is the C.N Tower. Next is the Chateau Frontenac and above is the moon and some stars. And finally a light house, that if it was black would look like the Eye of Sauron! XD

Oh my gosh I just love this!! I'm not even canadian, or know what canadaAM is, but I know this is awesome! My favorite part there is the lighthouse light! It really looked like it was coming out from your eyes! ^-^
That tractor and plane are way cute, the mountains are awesome, that space needle and castle looking thingy majiggies are so mistical and stuff! I love the nightish looking sky too. It's beautiful!!!
This is what I meant on my first review that I knew your works could be so much better! Fabulous, way cute. Awesome job! Keep working

Just watched your video on canada am's website. You have a lot of makeup! Been following you on here now for a month and your art is lovely. Way to represent Canadian art! Loved the eyes for the segment. Being from Canada myself, I think you represented our country well. :dance:

Hey, congratulations on getting on TV. I just watched the interview, your art is so awesome.

I noticed that you said you use pins for tiny details, I was wondering if you'd tried nail art brushes? There are some really delicate ones, and nails are even smaller than eyelids. :)
(I hope I'm not being nosy XD)
