Drawing: Scale it Up

This is the biggest drawing I’ve done… by FAR! This is the third continuation of Project X, with the guidelines being a drawing that is larger than your body. For this piece, I wanted to include a self portrait. The prompt of a piece that is larger than your body allowed the perfect canvas for a life sized drawing. For this project, each piece should build off of each other. I wanted to move away from the video game aspect of the theme and go in the direction of the people and memories.

The plan:

Very proud of this! It took a long time, but it got a great critique. Estimated time spent on this piece is at least 20 hours.
