I started working right after the video was posted XD Im painting/drawing with makeup. Im kind of midway, Im outline the sketch using eyeliner right now. Im taking chunks of the eyeliner pencil, shoving it on my normal pencil, and drawing with it like led. Even if I don't win, I'm having so much fun doing this, working with something that I normally wouldn't work with, thank you for this opportunity Jazza! <3

Can I use digital art if I'm exploiting the fact that my printer prints weird and that I'll colour with untraditional means?
