Free Portrait Giveaway

An acrylic portrait I did for a close friend.

Okay guys, I feel this is waaay over due.

I owe you a giveaway!

So I think a lot of people would be excited about this.
I'm going to do a free portrait of you in watercolour!
Anyone can enter the giveaway just
as long as I haven't done a portrait of you.

I'll send the original anywhere, where ever you are.

It's going to be on a standard-size A4 (8 x 12") paper with a leather grain finish.

What to do in order to be valid for the give away.
I would love to know more about you!
So please leave me a comment telling me:
  1. Where are you from?
  2. What are you interested most about my blog?
  3. What are your hobbies?
  4. Something random about yourself.
These below are optional.
You do not have to do them to be
valid for the giveaway.
  1. You can also ask me a question (I love answering questions) but look through my Q&A first so you don't ask me the same question.
  2. Follow me on FB, Twitter, Tumblr or Blogger.
Leave all comments under this posting only. Please comment once!
I'll randomly pick one person using a random generator.
The giveaway starts now and ends
Friday 20 April 2012 at 11:59pm WAT (West Africa Time)

Good luck!

Mode, you know I will enter this contest parce-que je suis le grand 'fan'! This is Eniola btw. lol

*crossing fingers for random selector*

My name is Eniola, I live in LA. I check your blog from time to time because I love your style of drawing & painting. ut I love your arbitrary use of color, shape and line.
I love anything fashion, culture, food and art and will dabble in it anyhow.
Something random: I have an unrealistic fear of clowns. Arggghhh!!!

On a more serious note, I have a question... I started drawing a lot more (as per fashion illustrations), I notice that I usually get the left side of the lip right but the right is ALWAYS off, it takes me at least 7-10 more attempts on such a small feature. Seeing that it's your specialty, any tips?

AHHH! I'd love a piece of your work.
I live in London, but I'm originally from Nigeria.
My internet/blogger alias is 'Onyxsta', I choose not to disclose my real name online as I aspire to be a Human Rights Barrister in the future and want to keep my professional life aside from all this. I love you blog before it showcases your raw talent for art. There aren't many blogs like it, and I especially like when you show the beginning stages before the final work...brilliant. I love how authentic your pieces are...
I love dancing, shopping and philanthropy so I have volunteered and worked for a number of charities in the past.

Something random? I'm double-jointed in my fingers and have endured several nicknames like 'spider' cos of the way they look.

I want to ask when you started drawing/painting and what you love most about art?

I follow you on GLC and my email is nkeks@hotmail.com

I, myself, have enjoyed drawing and painting from a young age so seeing your art work really inspires me. Something random about me...ummm... I've never broken a bone. (random, i guess)
My question: If I happen to not get it would you still paint a portrait of me? lol!

I love love love your vision. I was immediately drawn to the random pieces of your work I'd come across online and had to know more about Mode! I'm so glad I found your blog... I spend soo much time on your site just looking at all the awesome portraits! I love color and your use of color is simply inspiring. I'm a photographer and your work totally makes me jealous that I can't draw or paint lol.
