Let me start by saying I am VERY hesitant to post these pictures.
This collection took me months to complete; they're pretty much my babies, and I want to share them with you.
As for how long they'll be up, I'm not sure. I'm very nervous!

PLEASE do not copy/ steal my work. ;__; <33

All are done with Prismacolor colored pencils.

Lemme hear what you think they mean <33

What do you use for the outline before using the Prismas? :)

I use a white charcoal pencil then go over it with the prisma's : ) The charcoal erases away, but the colored pencil doesn't.

I just want to start out by saying this is a stunning piece! I love how you chose black paper for this picture it makes the girl and stars stand out making this piece that much bolder!

As for what I think it is... heres my guess. It looks as though shes holding a jewlery box, or maybe a music box? And it seems as though the box is bringing back a memory to her, or a story. As for the star in a cage I'm guessing it's suppose to be the north star and it's trapped in a lamp because it was used by the slaves to help lead them to freedom(like a light/lamp in the dark is used to guide you). So I'm guessing the box is an heirloom that was given to her from a family member and it helps tell the story of her families past and how they got to where they are.
Hope I'm not completely off!
