So this is my entry for the wacom contest, with lots of symbols in it^^
I really had to think hard about what my dreams for the future are. Firstly, because I reached quite a lot already(on my own small scale) and secondly, because things like a house in the country and publishing a children's book are quite superficial. I don't think they are what makes you happy in the end. So what I really want is to become rich, but not in the sense of possessing money, but rich inside. One day I want to belong to those people who really lived, who faced all aspects of life, the good, the bad and the crazy ones and became strong and maybe a little wise. Who did not break and have great stories to tell. That's my dream.
You know how it is.... You go to feed the baby... You loose track of things... and before you know it.... A lot of this was wanting to use the Insidious/Inside Us word play. 5700 x 8400 pixels
There is a color version which I'm also submitting [link]. Deciding to go black and white is sometimes a hard decision. Especially after you spend so much time making it color first, but I think this version came out much darker than its brother. I tell you what though, making your own film scratches and grain is pretty fun.
The drawing is bigger than my scanner so there are some parts not showing!
"You are protected by the strength of love and support of your loved ones, who always and forever conceder you precious to their hearts and you are! Be strong and fight for yourself and for them, because you are a fighter!"
Traditional drawing category: Graphite pencils, mechanical pencils and color pencils!
OK, I decided to enter the contest, thanks to everyone who encouraged me!
I made this drawing as a support for "Breast Cancer Awareness". Also I would like to participate the big contest "Think pink lV Contest" (traditional category) [link]
Unfortunately the pink color doesn't show clearly like in real life, the scanner kills it or something! Used pastel pencils, which is my first whole portrait using only pastel! It's hard to control them I like them and hopefully I'll practice more with using them
A special thanks for the sweet and Beautiful *PlastikStars for allowing me to use some photos as references from her amazing gallery
