Over the past few months I had been contemplating changing my medium from pastel to digital. I love working in pastels because they have such vibrant colors that can really add to the beauty of art. I never thought that I would switch away from them. I started to realize that the pros of working on the computer might outweigh the cons. I can work much faster digitally, I can work anywhere, and it doesn't make nearly as big of a mess! (Though I never minded being covered in pastels, I really felt a part of my work) :)
Below is my first try on the computer. I love to run, but I am slow but would love to run fast some day, so my little symbol for myself is a snail wearing a rocket on its back. This inspired my illustration below.
