I do not like this drawing but posting for posterity. And yes there’s a story to go with that.
This was an assignment for my first art class. The objective was to use environmental/atmospheric perspective. Technically it’s successful in that respect, and I got ok marks on it too.
When the fair rolled around I was going to submit another environmental concept which I did in my second art class that turned out better ( I will post that at a later date) but at the last minute I decided to add this drawing to the show as well. Family gave me funny looks because they don’t like it either and I was also having my doubts. I remember trying to hide it under the other drawing while taking it into the show.
Come to find out, this drawing came in second in its category. The other (better imho) drawing came in third in its category.
I never found out what came in behind it, nor in front of it.
Neither the family, nor I, can still believe it.
Indeed, beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

Earlier this spring, my mom asked me to make her something for Mother’s Day. We had gotten a lot of adult coloring books for Christmas, and I was short on time due to college finals, so I asked her if she would like me to color a page from her. She picked out the page and I colored it. Fortunately, she said I could take as long as I wanted with it, so it ended up being finished shortly after graduation.
Not great, but it was my first time using colored pencils outside of school assignments. To quote one of my favorite instructors, I see in grayscale
I’m responsible for the coloring only. Original lineart is by Eileen Rudisill Miller from the coloring book here:
First of all, I prefer to call myself a creative person, not an artist. This is because my creativity comes out in many ways, not just drawings.
Ok, important stuff's out of the way!
I'm a still slightly horse crazy girl from the Chicago area with a degree in Computer Animation, specializing in animation, from Full Sail University. I love playing video games, messing around with Maya, drawing, building my backlog of LEGO BIONICLE's, collecting Breyer horses, video editing, writing whatever hits me over the head, and finding new ways to express myself creatively.
I originally made this account for my third class at Full Sail but never did anything with it. Now that I've graduated, I'll be posting some of my old and current work.
Enjoy your stay!
