"This is a digital painting I completed recently on Paint Tool Sai with a drawing tablet. I was really fascinated by how striking and dramatic gray, white, black, and red look as a color combination, and I had also been inspired by the pattern on a woman's dress at church. Some of my favorite things to draw are flowers and cute outfits. I also really like paintings with a lot of different details that still go together and create an interesting pattern."
"My favorite style of art is Hyper-Realism, since it has a raw way of demonstrating how people are feeling. My grandparents were a great subject because I wanted to share the connection they have with me to everyone else. I used charcoal with Q-Tips to create a more Hyper-Realistic look to capture the emotions in my grandpa's face. For the background I also used water and brush over my charcoal to help create a more dramatic texture. This was a time-consuming process and took about 36 hours. I ended up gifting this piece to them because of what it meant to me."
