Muddy Colors Rising Star 2016 Submissions

challenge, the journeyVictoria SuppanComment

The wonderfully inspiring blog Muddy Colors has recently posted a call for entries for the Rising Stars 2016
Three emerging artists will be chosen to show their work at the next SFAL in Kansas City.
Well, that is a great opportunity and I decided to try to finish a piece that would (hopefully) stand out and be of better quality than anything I had done up until now. Challenging.
After many thumbnails, sketches, composition tweaks, choice of medium (I am planing a longer post on the creation process of this piece) I came up this.
For me, this is a bit of a breakthrough piece as it is the first for a story I am working on and in a very challenging style.
But no colour - I am still not comfortable with colour...

The submission deadline is on November 31st and the participants are asked to send in three "different works that you think represent you as an artist".
I added these two older pieces that I find to fit with the style of the main piece.

Thanks for taking a look at my post. I will keep you updated on results of the call for entries.
