Meet Creeper Jack


Creeper Jack, one of the new digis from The Greeting Farm, is described as "a little punk, a little Emo". I must admit, I didn't know what Emo meant. I know Goth. I sorta know punk. But Emo? Does it have to do with black hair?
(ETA: The very sweet Kim directed me here for info on everything Emo! Thanks, Kim....HuGs!)

I can't imagine Jack with any other hair color and he has the funkiest guy hairdo I've ever seen. I tried to color his hair the way my friend Lysa does but she makes it look way easier than it is! Did you see her video? Totally awesome. Makes you want to color shiny black hair.

All I can say is practice, practice, practice and it helps to chant: "Feather strokes, feather strokes...." Thanks for sharing your technique, Lysa!

And I hope you all have a great weekend...
