Survivor by artsaves1228 Survivor by artsaves1228
This is my entry for the "Think Pink" contest for breast cancer awareness, the contest is being held by `JunkbyJen

I saw that the contest only had a few more days left and really wanted to do an entry. For some reason I immediately thought of doing a girl looking over her shoulder with a little smile and the breast cancer ribbon tattooed on her. I saw this episode of "LA Ink" a few weeks ago and this girl was getting the ribbon tattooed on her and kind of got me inspired to draw a girl with the ribbon tattooed on her. I used a reference of Amy Lee cause I just really liked the pose, was perfect for what I had in mind so if it looks like her...I know :)


original drawing SOLD!!!!!!!! :dance:
Original drawing is for sale for $200 and half the proceeds will go to breast cancer foundation. I may even donate more than half :nod: note me if interested

I love the way this one says to all "I'm a Survivor!" "Nothing will stop me now!" "Live life, don't waste it!"

I have to say you turned an upside to to whole breast cancer thing, I love this female you've drawn. The background is awesome(despite my dislikes of pink things.) -SMK

I have a pink ribbon tattoed on my ankle.

My grandmother's cancer started in her breast, spread to her lungs, and eventually a brain tumor took her.

I myself have fibroadenomas, not so harmful tumors.

This peice is beautiful!
