Day 341 of my 366 Drawing Project by secrets-of-the-pen Day 341 of my 366 Drawing Project by secrets-of-the-pen
Day 341 of my 366 daily art project! A lot more are on the way! Please read all about my project and charity below and in my journal.

I would LOVE to take a stroll here.

>>Created with pastels and chalk. on 2.5x3.5 ACEO gray 500 series Strathmore charcoal paper. About 2 hours.

:bulletred: See all my ACEO's in my gallery here: [link]





-----------------

♥ For every day of 2012, I will be drawing one ACEO sketch card. Every single one will be for sale - ALL proceeds to be donated to charity at the end of 2012.

My charity of choice is a local foundation called Alternatives to Violence, who is currently raising money to build a safehouse. This safehouse will provide a secure shelter to men, women and children who have recently escaped physical and sexual abuse.

With the safehouse, 312 individuals every year will receive crisis intervention, counseling, safety planning, advocacy and shelter.

Together, through art, we can help make a difference.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
If you love this piece and the safehouse project, you can see the card to purchase at Etsy for $8+ shipping: [link]

You might want to credit bioware for this

But regardless of bioware or not you may want to credit your source on images you use

I've already been through this with someone else. This is the scene from Mass Effect you are thinking of: i.imgur.com/kK6W1.jpg
Note how it's darker in tone, the lens flare, and the two people at the bottom.
This is the actual reference I used: i.imgur.com/kvZmy.jpg
Much lighter in tone, no people, etc.

Easy mistake to make, but clearly, it's not Bioware's image. :)

Very pretty. I like the trees in particular. They look nice and wispy-like.

Haha no worries! And yes, that was my inspiration for this one! We haven't had any snow here and it's such a wintery scene. :)
