Alrighty, so the reason I chose to use "air headed" as my inspiration for this skin is because the mood of the painting really caught my attention. Even though the artist used bright, powerful colors such as red-orange and gold throughout the piece, the dark blue background gave the artwork a more reserved feel. In addition, although the drawing was done with a rough and sketchy look, I thought that the work overall gave off a feel of elegance.
I tried to recreate this mood in my journal skin by using the dark blue as the main color with the brighter colors thrown in as embellishment. I wanted to create something ambiguous, something both dark and light to reflect how the original artwork looked to me. The geometric design in this skin (the straight lines on the right and the triangles next to the headings) was inspired by the triangles in the girl's hair, and I also thought that it helped to convey the elegance in the original artwork.
