So I was looking for contests to enter, and found this by mistake! Tried emailing but kept getting a mail delivery failure, so guess I'll post my entry here. The image was reduced to 1004 by 777.( Sorry, couldn't do 1000) Original size is 1645 by 1340. This medium used was pencil, done on paper. Took approx 14 hours.
Ever since I was 8 I had these strange goals, I just dreamed of doing big things. I wanted to be an entrepreneur. Then I wanted to be an inventor, but I lost interest. One day I wanted to be a pianist and even a scientist! Everyday I encountered others, I wouldn't say a word, I stopped talking to my teachers, anybody in public. I wouldn't talk to one person,then, I wanted to talk again but I couldn't. It was too hard, there was nowhere for me to go.That all changed when I met this friend.
I always think of her,the image of me on this hilltop at night while the wind blows, stars shining till the last stardom with the rain pouring down, and the lanterns floating in the sky with the creatures hovering around. I would be standing on that hilltop and she'd come running up to me,she would hold me as the laterns in the sky started to sway. She was the one that gave me the confidence to speak again, then one day, I promised her something... I would be the greatist artist with this confidence that she gave me. I'm going to do this for my family, for my friends, for everyone because I believe that everyone should feel this confident, and I know that if I do this I can motivate everyone to reach their goals!
Ever since I had this goal, I started drawing in a different way, my own unique style. It's hard to describe the times I had with this friend. Once sentence can describe it all. Together, we flew in the sky, over the oceans, in a dream that lasted forever! We cried in the most magical legendary lake of all time. One day, this friend died from cancer, but even till this day, I still try to reach this goal for her, and that's all I can about me for now...
So I will....at all costs, reach this goal! If that means I have to do everything it takes, win every contest out there! Learn to use every medium there is, I will not stop!
