X Files Backpack

Anyone that knows me in real life knows I love the series. I own the collector's edition on DVD and have shown it to anyone who is willing to watch. So a few months back my school held a raffle and this is what I won:

Yea the stuff on the top used to be white... I already started to paint it before I took the photo. Any who I did not feel like being a walking advertisement for a fruit drink so I decided to change it into something I might actually use.

So I gathered my supplies:

I used some sharpies, sliver, blue and black fabric paint and some old paintbrushes.
Firstly, I covered up the existing images with the fabric paint and waited for it to dry. Next I drew on my design with a sharpie. Lastly I traced over my drawing with some sliver fabric paint.

This is the outcome:

Close up:

If anyone has any suggestions for what I could add to the left of Mulder and Scully... because it still feels a little empty to me. All righty, that's it for today...
See you tomorrow.
