Caught In The Downpour! by ArtBYbeverly Caught In The Downpour! by ArtBYbeverly
When I first saw the original photo, I was a little distressed by it just because the boy looked so lonely out there in the torrential rain, and soaked through to his core.  It connected me with some experiences I had had when I was young and had no umbrella!

My biggest challenge with this piece, was trying to depict the soaking wet t-shirt and realistic water on the umbrella, I think I did alright considering it was my first experience with it :)

You did great depicting the wet tee shirt. I was more convinced by yours than the photograph. The skin color coming though really makes it real.

I love this picture.

Aww thank you so much, I was so pleased at just getting the T-shirt to look wet so I'm happy that's what I achieved with him.  I felt so compelled to draw him, because of the way he looked standing in that torrential rain.  Thank you very much for your lovely comment!! :heart:
