MY first ATC created - pow-wow dancer

my first ATC created for the ATC exchange at drawingtogether2 yahoo group.

i was mainly enticed into the project because i saw the wonderful examples of artwork that these artists in this group are capable of -- so i wanted to get into the exchange so i could own a beautiful piece of artwork.

to do that, i had to create a piece of artwork to put into the exchange. i also signed up for the "prints exchange" where artists make prints of their own original works and send them to the other people on the list.

it turned out to be a great experience, but i was very intimidate by the quality of art that i had seen produced by these group members. i was afraid that whoever were to get my ATC would be disappointed in that my artwork wasn't as good as everyone else's artwork -- but it all worked out good.

this ATC was done on white Bristol Vellum paper with prismacolor colored pencils and sprayed w/ matte finish sealant to protect the colors from smearing. the picture was based on a photo that i had taken at a pow-wow near miami, ok a couple years ago.

This is lovely! I've just started creating ATCs too, thanks to the Monday Artday ATC community, and I'm having tons of fun with the small format :)
