I was going to Photoshop this to make it look a little more like it actually IS, but I was worried I'd just mess it up more than the scanner already did.
Anyways, YES, I have indeed submitted a Deviation, and YES, it is done traditionally. Granted, these are more like doodles and quick colouring with my Prismacolors but I really like how it turned out.
Through the circle you've basically got everything I love and everything that keeps me above.
Yeah, I put teh Pokeymahnz on there because I love them. You've also got my music, my faith, the future, my love of Nebraska (and the Huskers!), patriotism, and of course my art. The arrow in the middle is me and my most-used characters, Talia, Ashlee, Jeff, Dawaine, Kaleen, Todd, and Kim. And, of course, a little penguin.
My imagination keeps me ABOVE!
Being someone who has had family with alcoholism and drug abuse, I feel very strongly about this. I've pledged to keep drug-free, and I intend to keep that pledge. I've seen how drugs and alcohol can destroy somebody, and not only them, but everyone around them (friends, family) too. I love how dA has collaborated with ATI for this. If you don't like it, or you hate my project, or WHATEVER, I don't want to hear it. I will take it personally.
What a great cause. Thanks, dA, for doing something right.
