Joshua and Miyazaki

 This drawing is 11x14" and uses Prismacolor Markers and Pens, Copic Markers, Sharpie Oil-Based Markers, and Graphite Pencil. This was the first time I used the Sharpie metalic markers, and I was pleased with the results; they were reflective and shiny almost like a gold leaf painting!

 The reason for the painting title, "Joshua and Miyazaki" is the t-shirt Joshua is wearing. I debated on whether or not to use the details in his shirt, but in the end I decided it was one of the things that made the original photo so successful. This shirt was purchased on Teefury (I think) and depicts characters from several of Miyazaki's movies.

I definitely like how this drawing turned out.
