I've been meaning to post this eventually, but never go around to it 'till now.
This was the final project for my drawing class last semester. The object was to use a photo and duplicate it in color. Naturally, I chose a Disneyland subject, the Haunted Mansion. I did it all in colored pencil on black paper, because that's the media that I'm best at. The black paper is what gives it that neat effect. It's about 16.5" X 18".
When I showed the teacher the photo I was going to be drawing off, she thought I would be working on it for too long because of the detail. (This was a basic drawing class, where that much detail wasn't needed for a project). As much as she didn't want me to do it, I did it anyways and knew it could be done, since the colored pencil media is nothing new to me (Ex: Ernest S. Marsh/ IASW Art; Ward Kimball Locomotive Art). I was able to knock out the drawing in 10 hours (two class sessions). The teacher was quite surprised when I finished it!
Anyways, here it be:
Bonus points go to the first person that figure out what photo I based it off of!
