The Competition

I came up with this sketch because I was told I needed more females in my portfolio. I dug into my past and remembered a number of my friends who were girls were always so competitive with each other - whether it was academic, athletic or social. So I thought this would make a pretty decent subject for an illustration. So I gathered up what reference photos I could find and pieced this together. It's mostly about facial expressions - I wanted to show some sense of jealousy while the other one was not only oblivious but very proud. The writing you see at the bottom is something I sometimes do: I'll write a little paragraph or story to go with the drawing. I'm not a writer. It's just part of my creative process at times. I think it "grounds" the image more to have a story to go with it.
