MAC PHOTO REALISM WITH A TWIST

PLEASE, PLEASE
SIGN IN AS A FOLLOWER OF MY BLOG
OVER IN THE SIDEBAR
PLEASE & THANK YOU!!! IT'S GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!!


The Photo Realism quad was obviously my favorite otherwise I wouldn't have bought it. I've been wanting to do a tutorial with is for a couple of weeks and kept just staring at them swatching them on my arm in all different orders, using different bases underneath to pop the color and still wasn't satisfied. Then the other Guru's on YouTube started coming out with their tutorials on this quad and I was really excited to see what they had come up with....pretty much the same ideas that I had had and the comments people were leaving seem to express the same frustration with this quad I was having. Don't get me wrong, some of these Guru's are my favorite!!! but I still was not inspired...until, I took the shadows out of the quad and put them in my palette I had with the starflash colors in them and BAMM inspiration!!! I guess that is cheating a little bit, but that's what being an artist is all about FREEDOM!!! So don't feel like just because you bought these colors as a collection or because they are in a quad that you are restricted to using those colors together. If you happened to go to a MAC store and had an artist use this quad on you let me know what their interpretation was???
