Another finished page.

On a won't last haha, good job I only had 2 ARC pages to finish off. This one is from the November post. 

At the time, I managed to get the background done, and got it to this point..

next I needed to draw the boy who is the main character of the book. 

the book is basically about how he feels different from his friends, in that he really wants to wear a dress. 

I coloured it using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils and stamped a football onto a bit of scrap paper that had bits of paint on it. 

I worked out my positioning in the book

then added in some text, it needed a border, so I cut strips of paper to look like goal posts. 

All done. tho I won't be hosting ARC here on my blog this year the FB group is still open, and the monthly challenge will continue in there. Of course as and when I have time to do a page I will also show it here.
