My drawing of my daughter Katie (a.k.a. Defiance) was accepted in the publication "Strokes of Genius 2: The Best of Drawing Light and Shadow" by Northlight books due to come out in October 2009.
This was special news because it was a portrait of my daughter that will be published. :) I wasn't going to even enter this competition, but my friend Ranjini, at the last moment, said I needed to send this portrait in. So I sent it in, and only this image in and it made it! Thanks again Ranjini for the push!
The drawing is done with colored pencil on Fisher 400 paper. The first piece I tried on Tim Fisher's paper, which I now am in love with. The paper, not Tim, btw.
Now I have to have it professionally photographed. The call asks for 4x5" transparencies or good digital images. Does anyone have any info about transparencies - if their better etc?
