I Wish This Was Home by Christa-S-Nelson I Wish This Was Home by Christa-S-Nelson
Hello everyone!! I'm finally done with this semester!!!!!

This is the last drawing I did for my drawing class. It went through a lot of changes and cover ups to get it the way I envisioned. The falling snow was my teacher's idea.

And Just in time for Christmas!!!!! I would offer this as a print but the quality is so bad :( I took this with my phone because my camera finally quit. It's dead!!!!!! Finally!!!!!!!!!!!! I can get a new one without feeling guilty!!!!!!!! actually i can't afford it so i'm crossing my fingers for a new one for Christmas ;)

Anyway! I'f you are interested in buying a print of this please note me and maybe we can work something out (original is not for sale).

oh and i'm finally getting around to selling my artwork so if you are interested in a piece let me know!

I used this [link] gorgeous reference by ~vivstock:iconvivstock: for the group #Draw-Along:icondraw-along:

I drew this with soft pastel, it is 16"x20"

It looks very painterly! What did you use to draw it?
Reminds me of the entrance to Narnia :P
