This is actually a different style then what I usually do in my other pictures. I used a marker like pen to draw this and it took me a while to get it to the point that I wanted it too. ^-^ (let's say it kinda got a little confusing after a while).
What I usually do with this type of drawing... is play a game. I don't have a name for it, but the goal is to try and draw completely freehand without messing up, (with a pen of course ^-~). If you do mess up the second step is to cover it up by improvising left and right, and using the mess up to become part of your masterpiece.
I'm actually really proud of this one, I have a few others, but I've worked the hardest on this one. Hopefully you can see the contrasts well enough so that you can almost see color, though it's obviously not.
I do want to win in the competition, but if nothing else, just enjoy it as much as I do... and oh yeah, play that game. *wink* It should be fun.
