Oh yeah, and before I forget, I'll be announcing the new contest for November in, well, November, so stick around to see what you can win. With the holidays soon upon us, I imagine it will be a themed prize for once. =0) Well, seriously, I gotta go. I still haven't gone to bed yet and I'm supposed to get up in two hours, so we'll see how that works out on my body. This might not be too pretty. Hopefully this portrait however is, though I say portrait loosely because it's not really a portrait, since it's fictional. Is it then just a drawing or a fictional portrait? Oh man, no more posting at 6:30am for me! Well, it's off to bed for me now - I hope you're sleeping comfortably in yours and I hope to be posting again soon. Take care of yourselves out there today!

Oh, and by the way, this picture is also taken by my phone, which is good, but not perfectly true to nature in coloring. After all, it's indoors and it's nighttime, or morning, but yeah, you get the point I'm sure! I did find that I really rather enjoyed drawing on Tracing Paper and then placing it over some Drawing Paper in my Sketchbook. It gave the drawing a certain sheen and a softness to it that I've never felt or seen with Drawing Paper alone, and you can be sure I'll be testing what other effects I can get with this in the future. So many ways you could manipulate this image by what paper you use underneath it - if I come up with any cool combinations I'll let you know. Okay, seriously though, I really am going to go to sleep now. I mean it... Goodnight and good morning! =)
