Art Is My Passion by GIR9942 Art Is My Passion by GIR9942
This is my contest entry for an event in my town called, 'Art In The Park'. I'm entering this picture into the division for up and coming artists. First place gets a whole bunch of free stuff from Dick Blick AND gets their picture printed on all Art In The Park merchandise next year! :D I'm really excited :3 Art IS my passion. I draw everyday, even if it's just simple doodles. I love drawing, it's my life. Each detail in this picture was done with a different art tool. I sketched it all out with a mechanical pencils, did the lineart with a fine-tip Sharpie, colored my Persona and the easel with colored pencil and applied graduated shading to it, colored the 'paint' on the sketchpad with oil pastels, colored the background with a Crayola marker, and colored the floor with an Ebony pencil. I'm very proud of this, and even if I don't win, I'm happy that I got to enter :)

**Also. This picture is dedicated to my great grandmother, La Verna. She passed away about an hour ago at the age of 103. I will miss her terribly, but I know she's in a better place. I love you great grandma :heart:

Ooh, awesome drawing! I love how you made a spotlight effect on your persona and the art easel, it looks lovely and really concentrates on the colours. And of course the amount of detail is amazing, as usual. :) 

Also I'm sorry about your great grandmother, my deepest condolences to her.

EPIC! I like how the colors are darker near the lines and get lighter. And I'm sorry about your grandma.

Thank you! :D My art teacher taught me how to do that :) To smooth out the lines, you either rub on them with a tissue or cotton. It leaves a cool effect! ;P Well, at least she's in a better place now c:

What's the difference between an Ebony pencil and colored pencils? Is it just the brand?

Ebony pencils are graphite pencils, they are a lot messier than colored pencils, but also provide a 3D effect cccc:

This looks great, you! :D The colours are beautiful and vibrant, and the overall theme really, in my opinion anyway, represents what the even seems to be about. >w< Keep up the amazing work! You're improving with every piece that you post!

 

Also, I'm sure your Grandma is watching over you. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. :heart:
