Befriended by ODDITYILLUSTRATION Befriended by ODDITYILLUSTRATION
Hi everybody!  Here is my entry for the Transformation Challenge!

I feel like the most important transformations occur within rather than externally, and the transformation from loneliness to being befriended is relatable to almost all of us.  My inspiration comes from someone who, although he is not around so much, can pull me out of loneliness as soon as he comes home.  My best friend.  Being alone is something we all go through and have to deal with, but sometimes the answer to our most difficult problems is just having someone beside you to withstand them.  I hope you all enjoy this piece. 

I used Cold Press Watercolor paper to create three initial sketches.  Once each sketch was done, I colored each one with marker.  Then I scanned each picture onto my laptop and cleaned up using Adobe Photoshop CC.  The entire process took about eight hours.

All it takes is for someone to talk to you and then most of the time you kick off a friendship :) Very touching and meaningful too.

Very cute and I love the idea of an internal, emotional transformation through companionship instead of a physical change. It's true, the people around us change who we are! Great original take on the challenge prompt.
