SciFi and Fantasy Art How It Feels by Chelsea Stebar

Sometimes I feel like my art defines me more than I define my art. This is how it feels.

------------------------

My final project for Intro to Drawing. The assignment was to think of something we really cared about, something important to us, and show through a picture just how much we care about that something. So ya know, at first, I thought of the typical things like family and church and friends and stuff, but I really wanted to do something more specific to me. Then I thought, art is one of the most important things in the world to me. So after a lot of thought and sketching, always moving farther away from the blunt or direct approach, I came up with this. Being an artist means the world to me. And this is how it feels.

(watercolor, Prismacolor pencils, graphite - 18 x 24 inches - 10.5 hours) Sorry if the values look a little weird in places. I had to scan it in 8 pieces.

Major props to my roommate for being the best gravity-defying model ever. How did we do it, you ask? Magic.
