Entry for *mizzd-stock's Midnight Circus contest.

This is also a birthday gift for :iconbabsartcreations: who is a wonderful artist with a heart of gold. Happy birthday, Babs!

I have always been fascinated by and loved early 20th century circus and carnival sideshow/freakshows and have been wanting to create my own interpretations of what some of the exhibits might have been like. Here we have a beautiful, buxom bearded lady. This is just one of a new series of artworks I would like to make. Feel free to add me to your devwatch to see when the next piece will be uploaded!

I will say that painting facial hair on someone who normally shouldn't have any did prove a challenge, especially to do with a mouse!

I began working on my contest entry the very day Ida posted the contest info as I immediately thought about creating a bearded lady and knew exactly which stock photo of hers I wanted to use. However, I have been having nothing but trouble coming up with a background I liked. I created probably 5 different backgrounds and something just didn't feel right to me. Finally, on the last day of the contest things came together for me to where I am satisfied.

This is my first time entering a contest here on deviantART!
