Me and my Patronus by sparrowcrazy Me and my Patronus by sparrowcrazy
Expecto Patronum!

If it wasn't for the fact that :iconROSESareBLUEinMYBook: has extended the contest date for so long on my behalf, I wouldn't even be posting this....
To say that I messed it up is the kindest thing I could say about this... it started out great, until I began coloring it. It really hasn't been my week.. and I say that with good humor.. seriously it makes me laugh. Everything just turns upside down these last few days. :P

Normally it makes me angry when a good work gets ruined but this time I didn't even bother.. it was almost to be expected. A pity because it was the first good selfportrait I've ever done.. I really wanted to make a good contribution to this contest...but what can I say.:shrug:

So yeah... don't be to hard on this piece.. it's been through a lot, it deserves pity.  :XD:

My House is obviously Gryffindor and my Patronus is Snow Leopard. ^^

Edit: looking at this again I really like how the shading on the scarf looks.

I can't believe I haven't commented on this. O.o What is wrong with me? :o ANYWAY. This is truly spectacular! It's so lovely and colorful! I love your fall colors. That's one of my favorite times of year :D.

 Are you feeling better? I just read what you said about the hard week. I know that this was posted a while ago, but I am hoping you are doing better? :)

This is beautiful :D. It most certainly was not ruined and your Patronum looks very lovely. I think you did a super job and it looks like a Patronum! You even won 2nd place (I may be a little biased, but I believe you should have won first. Not to be rude to the other contestants though. :)  I mean it in good nature :). ) No pity either. Just honesty! :D :iconsupertighthugplz:

And hey, don't be so hard on yourself :D. You are a very talented artist and I know you will succeed in whatever you set out to do! I have seen many people (Again, I don't mean to be rude) that deserve 'pity' and you are most definitely not one of them. You are spectacular and amazing and deserve to win :D :iconspazhugplz: :tighthug:

Really? :O_o: Well that's odd... looks pretty bad to me.:P It should too considering that I just floundered with the brush in the end just trying to cover up the blanks. :XD: But thanks for the vote of confidence. :hug: I can agree on the colors though, those were fun to do. :nod:

Definitely redoing this one day though.. :P
