Look at me!

This is a charcoal based portrait of a young girl in poverty.
I chose charcoal because it represented some natural life in the slums and I thought it would fit well with my story and compliment the drawing.
The young girl I named "Myla" in my daydreams inspired me to draw this piece.
My drawing tells a story about a photographer on vacation in Nepal where he visited the slums and came across a young girl playing in the mud, Myla curiously went up to the camera and posed catching the photographer’s attention.
The photographer was fascinated by her breathtaking facial features and got a few shots of her.
Myla was overjoyed knowing she was noticed and the photographer blessed he had made someone’s day.
This shows us that even the little things bring joy to those who aren’t as lucky as us.
