SMASH 2008 Traditional Art by ShenKhort SMASH 2008 Traditional Art by ShenKhort
I got kinda bored of working on some of my other drawings so I decided to play around with something along the themes stated in the SMASH! 2008 Art Competition that is due on the day of the convention on August 2nd. [link]

The theme is a choice of any or all or some of the following:

I decided to do a fairy princess of mushroom-land. Yea, not that original. Was originally going to have her carry a parasol-like mushroom to shelter her from the sun's rays and a mushroom dress...but I could never make it work out the way I wanted it to. It just didn't look too good. ^^;;

Anyways unfortunately I can't actually enter the SMASH! Art Competitions because I'm part of the Committee. Well, I technically CAN enter, just that I can't be judged or win prizes that include Wacom tablets and other stuff.


Might or might not add to her dress and a background...

You draw faces really well. :wow:
The only thing that bothers me a bit is the foreshortening in the arm, but maybe it's just me. :D Took me a while to notice it too, so maybe it is just me.... :paranoid:

Thanks! ^__^
Yea, I was using a reference for the arm...but perhaps the other parts of the body don't match up too well with the arm. >_<;;

Hey, no worries. :D
Oh well, at least you were practising the good habit of using a reference.... :)

Awesome! The mushrooms are so cute! ><
It's a pity you can't be judged etc, [you could have won! ><]
I'm glad you're deciding to colour, it'll look much better coloured, looking forward to the finished product! ^^

Welcome ^^
Nah, it's really cute ^^ At least it isn't the old fairy princess living in a toadstool house thing...
I love interesting ideas, I have to so many ideas and sometimes I'm not sure how to put it on paper haha >< But it's fun just thinking about them lol
Oohh lucky you ^^
Btw: I checked the art comp details on the SMASH! website and it said prince instead of princess. Which one is it actually o_O?

Ahaha, no way would I win. My idea is so...bland.
The judges judge on a whole range of things, one of the main being idea and concept.
Like last year I'm really looking forward to seeing people's entries and their ideas. I was amazed for instance at :deviodine-soup: entry. That was such a good idea and looked really good. I even got a free print of the entry on the day. ^_^ (cause I was his first customer. o,o)

love the pose. That's really nice. Just wondering, you always seem to draw girls...
ShenKhort Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ahaha. Yea, I draw girls...
Hmm...I guess my excuse is because I find the female body far more beautiful than that of the male body.
Plus, I'm more comfortable looking at naked female models or other such references compared to naked male models. *nods*
