Project Description

Thanks for creating with me! Please remember that the most important thing is your individual expression!

Your assignment is to create a fantasy portrait. It can be your friend, a famous actor, imaginative character, magician, game character, anyone! Maybe a self-portrait? Be brave!

You don’t have to upload the final project; you can show me your sketches. The community here is very friendly and helpful.

You can also post it on Instagram, just don’t forget to tag me so I could find it. And of course get inspired by my Pinterest Maria Antoinette inspiration board.

(UPDATED!) Don’t forget about awesome Giveaway! Post your project in the Project Gallery before December 31st for a chance to win one of TWO awesome art supply sets I’ve prepared specially for you.
