Twenty Minutes - Arting Spirit Contest by KmyeChan Twenty Minutes - Arting Spirit Contest by KmyeChan
Copyright © Kmye Chan 2012. All rights reserved.

On Easter week-end I was invited to participate to Arting Spirit, a painting contest held by the Polymanga 2012 Convention in Lausanne. The goal of the contest is to paint in live on a large canvas (80x80 cm, so about 35x35 inches) over two days, on a subject given to all artists when the contest begins.

The subject this year was "20 minutes".
I had loads of fun doing this painting - it was my first time working on canvas, on such a large piece (my largest so far was 40x50 cm, so just larger than a quarter of the surface of this one), entirely with actual paints and brushes, and in such a short time. So it was a complete challenge for me !

I hope you will like it although it's quite different from what I usually do ! :)

(And it was Easter - I felt compelled to draw rabbits for some reason !)

Two of my friends were attending too: check out their awesome paintings !

And `zancan was at his usual level of amazing greatness : [link] !

c'est dommage,surtout comme t'a dis que c'etait un peux une experiance pour le format etc.Ca aurait été bien de pouvoir la garder :P

En fait elle a pas osé te le demander,sous pretexte que t'étais deja pas mal occupée et qu'elle voullait pas passer pour une conne a dire 'bonjour,j'aime trop ce que vous faites,jpeux avoir un dessin'...Elle est timide des foix ou réagis béttement :P

'Tout cas j'éspère que le Poly' t'a laissé un bon souvenir (mis apart la foule de geeks qu'il y dés foix) et qu'on aura ptre la chance de te revoir l'année prochaine :D

AH! et surtout Bon Anniv' aussi!!!J'ai raté de te le dire avant

Holy Molly no ! I'd never be able to draw this in twenty minutes, it took about 16-17 hours, I think. :)
Thank you !
