Okie Roughneck

First, I want to thank everyone for their encouragement! This week I have once again, "stepped out of the box" and tried something new. I love the artwork of Marsha at Tumble Fish Studio. Her colors are vivid and I love how she takes different elements to create a piece of art. So, this week, I've tried my hand at her style, but of course, toning down the colors.

Digital Artwork by Andrea

Head is from Suzee Que, body from FrenchKissed, Background from Tumble Fish Studio - Flickr, Texture by Playing with Brushes, Tags from The Vintage Moth, Ammonites from Art-e-ology and I created the crown from a piece of emphera by Art-e-ology, Wings from Cemerony, Sneakers from a magazine, Rigs and Truck are free images. I hope you enjoy!  


  1. Andrea, I'm a HUGe "Marsha" Junkie, and your piece is a wonderful tribute to her distinctive style. Fabulous! Using a more subdued palette has really give this piece a lovely "look"! Beautiful! Hugs, Terri

  2. Beautiful!!! I love her crown so much. Aren't you a clever Sweetie:) Love, Jamie

  3. This is such an incredible piece! Your work is amazing! Found your blog today and I'm your newest follower!

  4. Well, of all days to visit, I had no idea what sweet words I'd find! Oh my goodness. I am blushing. I've meant to have you in my links forever and as I went through comments tonight I decided that needed to finally get done and here I ended up. I am so far behind on blog visits and hope to get caught up over the next few days.

    You are such a wonderful artist and do so many things with your work I wish I knew how to do. You have such exquisite delicate but important layers in your work and I am so "bold and slapped on there" in mine. I'd like to have a little of you rub off on me. I'm in love with this piece, by the way. Gorgeous work.

  5. Yes - I agree with Terri, Marsha and Ophelia in all of their comments and I too especially love how you've played with the colors to make it an Andrea! Beautiful.
