Previously in Geek Shoes.
The lovely Mel asked me to transform a pair of pumps into slayer shoes. She sent me the shoes and a TPB of Fray and I got to work (as soon as I finished reading it, that is).
Everything went faster this time because I knew I needed:
1) 4 long panels with visual interest for the sides.
2) 4 kick-ass close-ups for the heels and toes
3) A selection of smaller rectangular shots for the in-between spots
4) Some tiny pictures for the inevitable gaps
So I marked illustrations I liked as I read and picked ones to cut out only after checking to see if they'd fit on the shoe.
Then I decided to get faaaancy and layer pictures:
The goal is for you not to be able to tell, but this shot is three separate illustrations: The shot with the tattoo is the bottom, with the picture of Fray with her arm out and the red blade layered over it.
I was really happy with the results.
And Mel was happy too, which was the best part!
A couple of people have asked, so:
To get your own geek shoes, just send me the shoes and comic of your choice. My jar of Mod Podge and I will do the rest!
