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!
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
