Sunday Postcard Art - Altering Mona

I have morphed Mona Lisa through a couple of centuries to become a Marie Antoinette look-alike.  The face was Googled, as was the dress which is taken from a painting of Marie Antoinette.  I found the wig on Google too.  It was blonde and brassy so I gave it a touch of "powder" (white semi transparent paint).  Other elements are by Creativewing Designs.

  21. Mona + Marie = fantabulous. I love the colors, the composition and the clock elements and of course the scallops. My favorite part is the French artisocratic makeup, complete with beauty mark- love it!!! How did you do the background?- I think I NEED to get into digital art.
