Sketch Fest #53 starts in: 1 days 2 hours and 55 minutes! (July 25-27!)
Work by: Jenny Heidewald
I am one of those self-taught artists that has been drawing since I was little. I remember the exact moment I decided I wanted to be an artist; interestingly enough it was while watching my mom draw the hand of God reaching from the clouds to His followers. I was floored, it seemed to be magic, an image appearing out of nowhere. I thought to myself, "I want to do THAT!"
I have worked in many mediums. My current favorite technique is working with colored micron pens, and coloring with watercolor and/or Photoshop.
For any of the ACEOs on the Sketchfest site: If you miss buying the original line version, I now offer a limited run (three)of any of my Sketchfest ACEOs. These will be printed on watercolor paper and hand painted, numbered on the back. They are $7 each, with half of that donated to Sketchfest. If interested in one that hasn't been "activated" yet, drop me a line via e-mail. :)
Please check out my Portrait Adoption, Sketchfest, Deviant Art (go to the website link below), and Elfwood pages for a more diverse selection of my art to browse through. For tutorials I have written, please check out EMG-Zine
. I also have a Facebook page for my art.
