here's my entry for the contest. It's mostly hand-drawn, with a few digital tweaks. Done in Pentel Zebra mechanical pencil, prisma markers and colored pencils, uniball pen on strathmore bristol board. Tweaked the colors and texture in PS2
My goal in the piece was to try and use fine whispy lines to mimic the graceful qualities of sumi and then tone it so it would appear like an old parchment or scroll. I added my OCD nature of detail and voila! I think it works...enjoy!
