My First EDM challenge post


This is for my first post to EDM flickr group. It was a quick sketch, done to test out the new drawing desk my dad built for me. And no, I didn't mess up on the finger; it's a scar!
I don't know why, but I picked up a prismacolor col-erase pencil, in terra cotta, to do this. It took a little tweeking with the scanner to even get it to show up! Quite honestly, I hadn't expected it to turn out since it was so quick.

  6. Thank you all so much! I love EDM and spend hours each day looking through all the great artwork.

    Funny you should comment on the banner-I hadn't even thought of it being art! One day, when I was still fumbling around with the blog (I had it for two months before ever making a single post), I decided that I would do a quick banner. It didn't matter what it looked like, I just needed to get one up. Thus this came out in under five minutes. I've been planning to replace it when I came up with an idea of what I want. Maybe I don't need to worry about that afterall!

    Thanks for commenting!
