Discover a Muse/End of Week 6 (A bit over due)

12WC_week6

So here I am on the first day of week 8 posting my last image for week 6. I’ve been hustling, but never could make up the time from the about face I made at the mid point of week 5. However now I’m finished and I hope to be back on track by the week’s end.

The final image I chose to do was kind of a two for one for me. Prior to the 12 Week Challenge I’d run across a contest run by the most excellent ArtOrder blog who joined forces with Veronika Kotajic for this particular challenge. This was an awesome contest, run by an awesome blog (one I can’t believe it took me so long to stumble across), oh and judged by awesome judges. All for a good cause to boot? Sign me up.

It posed a lot of interesting problems for me. Not the least of which were the delivery dimensions. The final output was set for 13.5″ x 17″. Since I work traditionally I like to work larger pieces at least a bit larger than the final. In order to let scaling tighten up the image for me just a bit. So the original ended up being 16.875″ x 21.25″ so around twice as big as I have been working lately. It proved to be a lot of fun. I plan to work on more drawings at a larger scale as my schedule allows it in the near future.

Any way here’s what I was able to come up with this week. Let me know what you think.

***ETA*** In my haste to post this I left off the link to Veronika’s page, and any mention of her being part of hosting this contest.
