This was the submission for the MEFCC art competition but unfortunately it didn't get shortlisted. So I might as well post it online after 3 months since its completion.
The theme was Middle Eastern elements incorporated in the the drawing. After reading that my mind went blank as I didn't get any inspiration whatsoever which is bad because I AM AN ARAB SO I SHOULD KNOW THIS HOW TO TACKLE THIS CHALLENGE! So I guess I took the safe route and drew a portrait of a girl in traditional Emirati clothes with arabic calligraphy in the background.
I can guess why mine wasn't shortlisted but I'm still very proud of this drawing, especially drawing/coloring the henna which was a pain in the neck X-X
