Dr Digi Friday with Andy

Hello folks :) It's a fortnightly Friday slot for Dr.Digi's DT-ness and I have used Anglin' Andy.

I actually made this as a commissioned card for a friend, but then they decided they didn't want it so... I was pleased with it anyway! It felt a bit of a cheat using the pre-coloured background for him but... it was just so perfect! :D

Tried out a few new things with this one, I have left quite a lot of pencil stripe texture on his chest-high waders, It was tempting to make them completely smooth, but I stopped before the final smoothing session, was it a good idea? Love doing the fish ( Ok... it might not be a realistic looking one tho!) and thoroughly enjoyed doing a different kind of plaid shirt. (It actually looks like a shirt the intended recipient wears for fishing, was aiming for Andy to be dressed pretty much in the same clothes that he wears.)

Bit of a close up on the check details, tho it actually took a lot less time than the fish and the waders! :D So he is all coloured with polychromo pencils on kraft card and then cut out and mounted onto the background with 3D foam.

Font is Scoobydoo again! Just like how informal and friendly it looks. I added some real flyfishing hooks (they are attached by a blob of glossy accents over the sharp bit of the hook) and the twine is metallic thread, a stash item virtually older than me.

Here is Andy in the shop. And also the backing paper you can buy for him.

Thanks for reading this far! If you would like to check out Dr. Digi on Facebook and the rest of the team (new posts everyday) then please click the picture below. Thanks.
