Okay, so ooooooooooooh man. This was such a crazy experience for me. I'll try not to drag on so much though!
Basically, Art Battle is a competition across Canada where artists (12 in my session, professional and emerging) are put against each other and are given 20mins to paint whatever they want in front of a crowd of spectators. I was in Round 2 and I was basically a wreck. I'm not entirely confident in my art abilities (at least, before the end of the night) so I was psyching myself out.

So my turn came and I did my thing. I painted a girl as I had with all my practice paintings (which are for sale, and one is already sold~ ) and just went for it. I turned back every now and then to see the people, and they had their phones out and everything ; A ; So freaky! But the 20min ended and I got to run away and hug my family and bf. I was shaking it was so bad xD I was proud of myself though and was happy to be done... or so I thought

Voting was done and they moved on to announce the two finalist of Round 2 to join the finalist of Round 1. When I heard I had made it to the final round I almost cried out of fear. I hadn't prepared to make it to the final round! And I was against 3 pros! Needless to say I was a nervous wreck once more, and I only had 10mins to panic. But alas I went on and I just painted another girl. I wasn't nearly as happy with it as my first one, but it was still a lot of fun!

I didn't end up winning, but it was just an amazing moment for me. It gave me the confidence to keep painting, and that people would actually buy my paintings! I did end up selling both pieces at the show which was completely crazy! For 40mins of work I left with $55, which sounds great to me xD If only life could be that easy~

But on another note, I am selling the practice images! Click the image below to see what's still available :)

Hello there,

I'm one of the admins of :icontoronto: and I was wondering if you were coming to January's DevMeet? It's on the 25th with casual skating and followed by dinner and we'd love to have you. If you can't skate don't sweat it; I can help you or you can just hang out with some of the others.

Here is the full info toronto.deviantart.com/journal… , if you can make it then please RSVP here toronto.deviantart.com/devmeet… . If you're not comfortable coming on your own feel free to bring a friend or family member to accompany you. It's an all ages event and I can assure you we're all nice people.

Hope to see you there and if not then maybe next month,
