Believe by Zindy Believe by Zindy
October is the breast cancer awareness month.
It's something I want to support as I feel strongly for the subject. It’s such an unfair disease in many ways and it hits so many women. It’s scary that you can’t prevent it from hitting you, even if you live healthy and well. Cancer is a frightening disease.

This is my entry for the Think Pink lll: [link] held by :iconjunkbyjen:
(I'm entering in the Traditional category).
I think it is beautiful what she is doing and it’s great to see many people support the project.

I wanted to create something soft, beautiful, symbolic and a bit fragile, to symbolise the whole thing.
As with many things hope and belief can do a great deal to your health and help you heal. The sky is to symbolise how sometimes our blue sky gets clouded and grey. Most of the time the “clouds” passes by and leave the sun to shine on the beautiful blue sky. Even in the worst and hardest time of our life we have to believe and hope for better days.
I used this pretty model for my drawing: [link]
Made with Caran D'ache Supracolour colour pencils.
I've worked on the drawing on and off the past 14 days, as I really wanted it to be just right.

:bulletpurple: I will be selling prints and tubes with Believe as well as my Hope drawing from last year at my shop all October month. Half the amount of everything sold will be given to the Fight against Cancer organization.

Prints available here: [link]

Is this a submission for the contest? I am just asking because some people have submitted to the gallery and are not clear of whether it is a submission for the contest or not, as they have not sent me a note.

paulineaubey Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2008
Sure, Zindy :hug:
Butterfly in French is "papillon" - I was listening to Maria Carey's Greatest Hits this morning and the cd cover - on which she poses with the "papillon" ;) - made me think of you and your artwork :)
How do you say pink in Danish? :D

Zindy Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
Ah, Ralf said something which sounded like that but I had to make sure :D
Mariah :love: She is awesome. I should draw her again sometime soon, in colour... or maybe you should(your new poll) :D
Pink is the same - pink :)Light pink, which is my fabourite is lyserød in Danish.

:iconpaulineaubey:
paulineaubey Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2008
She's really pretty indeed and I love her sultry forms and cute smile - I always thought you Summer Glow girl [link] looked just like Maria :nod:
Funny you mentioned Britney in my poll, because I was actually thinking of drawing her again, she's so pretty in a recognizable way with her innocent dark eyes and her light hair - this is how I see her. I like the drawing I did of her, but I think I could represent her in a different way, more sexy and womanly. Curiously, I like her better than ever right now, I always liked dual ambivalent people better :nod:

Weird pink remains pink in Danish! :)

I hope Ralf is doing fine - say hello to him for me, okie?
