Hot Air Balloon Eyes by KatieAlves Hot Air Balloon Eyes by KatieAlves
I forgot to actually put this one up! This is the winning entry for my Beautyuk contest I was holding!

This idea saved my butt, I owe it to this girl for creating a design that helped me so much! I can't express how thankful I am for this idea! I would have been screwed without it! I did a TV interview and they wanted a design done, so I chose this one, which would roughly take me about half an hour to 45 minutes. I got to the studio and just as I'm going on, I find out I've got 10 minutes to finish my entire design AND do the interview. I have never done a design so fast in my life!

This was taken the night before the interview. The interview one was missing the clouds and the darkness to define the hills. The rest was all there!

OK, THAT'S IT!!! YOU ARE A SUPERHERO!!! "PEOPLE SHALL MAKE STATUES AND LOOK UP IN AWE AND ADMIRATION!!!" You, Katie Alves, put a whole new meaning to the job description, "makeup artist," but instead of artist, put in insane genius!!! these balloons are detailed even when tiny!!! i've seen them up close, but never on someone's eyelids!! were you watching these ballon when you came up with the inspiration, because out of everything you've done, this is perhaps one of my favorites; the beginning of change, adventure and life. PLEASE KEEP DOING THESE DEVIANTS FOR THE WORLD TO SEE!!! YAY!!!!
