Jaw dropping.
Breathtaking.
A perfect portrait of a panda, as expressive as any human.
Well done.

Thank you everyone for the feedback, I really appreciate it. I still haven't heard anything so I'm taking it that it didn't sell and they didn't want to disappoint me. I'm not discouraged about it because there could be a number of reasons why it didn't sell at the event. I don't think it has anything to do with the quality of my work. I'm still so proud of this piece. I really poured my heart into it. Even if it didn't sell, I'll probably make another piece if they ask me again next year. Thanks for encouraging me to keep going.  Cheesy

Oh and I used prismacolored pencils, they're my favorite.

OK I just got news from the people that ran the event! The person who got it was the person that I mailed the drawing too (she was running the event). She said that she just couldn't let it go. It went for a little less, but the group that has this event is a small personal group. People in the group probably saw that she really wanted the piece and probably didn't bid because they knew how much she wanted it.

So I feel really good about this now and I have an even great faith in my art. I'm really hoping that I can get into the larger event at the National Zoo. I had the group giving me praise to the right people at the National Zoo so I'm hoping I can do even bigger pieces for their auction! Thank you so much for helping me build my confidence!

That's great, ericav! This is an amazing piece and I am glad it was able to go to a good cause and to someone who will treasure this. I spend a year in D.C. as a kid and going to see the pandas was the highlight of my life at the time. Thank you for helping out the zoo so that other kids get to know these wonderful creatures and get excited about animals, science and conservation.

You did an amazing job! When I saw the little thumbnail picture on the front page, I thought it was a picture of a stuffed panda (and that, rather than a real panda, only because this is more of a craft forum and I thought someone was showing off a toy they had made)! I love colored pencil,but I'm not that good at it. I can draw, but I can't get the lovely deep colors with it. I guess I'm too impatient.

I thought the same thing when I first saw the pic!! Again, such great work!
