Moon on the Range by DesignZ by DeDe

Moon on the Range by DesignZ by DeDe

I love texture in kits - but usually I rely heavily on commercial-use textures that I love to mix-n-match and make my own. The challenge this time was to create everything on our own and not use commercial-use products. I loved being able to draw these silhouettes with Adobe Illustrator and then texturize in photoshop. I was able to accomplish it and I'm very excited how it turned out.

I am the daughter of a cattle rancher and I grew up with horses and cows. So I was able to use my photos to create barnwood-like texture to this kit. The other texture that I used was mulberry paper/handmade paper that I have created.

The palette and the fact that I grew up on a ranch, was the inspiration for this kit. The idea behind the kit is that the light of the moon makes beautiful silhouettes and a ranch has the perfect characters to show off!

** I should add the fact that I did do a google search for western silhouettes and I used images that I saw as inspiration - but I did draw them on my own.

I hope you enjoy it and find a way to use these fun images of the range in the moonlight!

Great western kit. The accent color you chose goes very well with the rest of the palette. The silouettes are a nice touch.
