Awesome drawing! But most of all, I love your poem and I thank you for it in the name of all women of the world who are treated as inferior to men or have trouble to get the recognition they deserve. And you are so right, the "quest for equality" is foolish, there are so many differences per se between a man and a woman. Each genre has their own role which should be complementary to each other.
i generally use pencils myself, but i wanted this to be special. oil pastels are very messy, and difficult to use. i hated them the first time i used them, but that actually tickled my stubborn streak. i took it as a challenge, and now have decided to use them more! the colours are so VIBRANT that the end result justifies all the pain.
I'm glad it paid off. Do you use a particular brand or anything? I don't know anything about oil pastels, but I want to try it! I've been switching to traditional art in the last month, before that I did almost everything digital.
