This is actually my least favorite picture in my AP art portfolio for '05, but I still don't think it completely sucks. The scan is bad, too, because the blues are much more vibrant in real life and the silver paint I used in some areas appears muddy and greyish here. Anyway, Maryanne seemed rather bored/sad/contemplative when I drew her, which is why I chose to make everything blue (plus I was on a deadline and didn't have time to mess around with many other colors). The original sketch was more balanced, too. Drat.
