Obama MLK - Contest entry

Edit: Thinking of submitting this to the Obama administration because he is the bomb! (perhaps that's not the figure of speech I was going for :slow:)
Anyway, I'm so friggin happy that we're finally away from Bush that I made this in art class to celebrate. :dummy:

It would be an honor to have my work selected. :eager:

21 x 30
Pencil + Charcoal
Horrible photo


Man have I been waiting to submit this. Perhaps my best piece ever made so far in pencil art, and it's my entry to =Cataclysm-X's awesome Couples and Duos Contest.

ENTER NOW. :iconanimefaceplz:

PS: yes I know horrible picture. Everywhere I call doesn't have a flatbed scanner, and no way in hell am I ruining this.

I see what you did there. :<

I had a feeling you took it home to post it on here. xD I still need to put mine up, but the contrasts are nowhere near as good as yours...

Lawl, thanks. But yours had way better detail! :noes:

Anyway, my still life drawing this year is going to kick major New Art Teacher Ass. Or at least the soft folds in that box on the left. :slow:

I saw the box, looked great. :meow: I didn't have the heart to do all those folds, so I went with the stupid flower. xD Laziness for the wiiiiin.

Yeah well yours is amazing. Don't know how you can possibly make charcoal so soft, but I can't even see which direction you hit the paper or anything!

I gave up, so now mine looks like poopy.
