Stockholm Pride by ElinKarlsson Stockholm Pride by ElinKarlsson
Right now Stockholm Pride is taking up the whole city!
I was supposed to dance in the big parade today, but since I have a cold I couldn't...
This became my contribution instead.
I think it's a very important thing and it brings so much joy to the city and to sweden. <3

Some days before Pride started I dreamt I coloured my hair like a rainbow, I take it as a sign. ;)

I sketched this with a graphite pen, lined with copic fine liner, coloured it with copic markers and faber-castell colouring pencils, added text and frame in photoshop.
I used a picture of myself as a reference.

Edit: I logged on to deviantart and had over 1000 messages in my inbox and thought. "Whaaaaat...? Is this one of those bugs people have been talking about?"
But it wasn't, it was a DD apparently and I became very, VERY happy and danced around the apartment for quite some time.

Thanks for all the love, both faves and comments, it's gonna take some time to reply though and I hope that's ok. ;)
And a big thanks to :iconpetrova: for suggesting this picture and to :iconastralseed: for featuring it. <3 <3 <3

The suggester said: This under appreciated piece caught me not only because it's beautiful but because it has a strong message. In the background it says "I'm proud of me" and the artwork was inspired by Stockholm Pride (for LGBTQ rights). Stockholm Pride by *ElinKarlsson ( Suggested by petrova and Featured by Astralseed )
