My sister and I have a deal: she is going to help us build or renovate our future house — she's an architect — and I'll help her out with all her futher graphic needs: wedding invitations, birth announcements...
I thought I had the better end of the deal since she actually isn't engaged yet and so far it doesn't look like their will be any babies on the way soon. But then she moved into her first rental house with her boyfriend... And she aked her big sis to design a nice mural for their bedroom.
So I knocked out a design and started painting with some help from the boyfriend.
I'm not that good at freehand drawing so I made the design in Illustrator and we then projected it on the wall using an video projector from my boyfriends work.
We traced the outline with a pencil.
And then started filling it in. This step actually went a lot faster than I thought. It did however take about 3 coats to get the color right.
And here's the result.
