30 Day Sketch Challenge

Day 1

Okay I’m preeeetty late posting this– it’s like, less than 30 minutes till midnight  and it would really suck if I missed day one of the challenge >_<

This past Halloween, I co-hosted a party, and I was in charge of one of the party games. It was a Trick or Treat, with a twist. I laid out about 20 boxes, each with either a trick or a treat in them, and one of the treats was a voucher for a free illustration from me. Long story short, a really nice guy happened to win that prize, and his request was that I do an illustration of the Virgin Mary.

After doing my research, gathering references and coming across some really really weird Virgin Mary art, I put pen to tablet and rendered out this sketchy painting !mary
