Winning Drawings

A few weeks ago, we did a giveaway where I asked you guys to submit a quote that speaks of who you are. I picked two winners and drew them incorporating their quotes. Without further ado, I would like you to meet two friends of DA, Josh LaFayette and Ellie (aka comfits). Josh's "favorite hobby is breakfast." And Ellie is "like an octopus on roller skates."

Take a look at the process, from the initial pencil drawing to pen to watercolor and collage.

Josh and Ellie, check your mailboxes soon. I think I may now know your faces better than you do. :)

E-mail me at jamieetao{at}gmail{dot}com if you'd like a portrait of your own.

Hahahha. No sneaky Petes here. I need you to send me your address. Via e-mail, of course. :D

So glad you like it. I had fun drawing you guys!
