Here's my enter for DA's 16th Birthday Coloring Challenge.
If you enter, you get a badge for entering the birthday coloring challenge.
Of course, I wanted to join in on the fun and earn a badge. At first, I wasn't sure how I was going to create art out of the template that was provided. I finally settled with creating a birthday cake with the number 16 candles and a few other things such as the DA's mascot, a drawing pencil, a heart, and the letter "D" for DeviantArt. I was thinking of adding more things, but I felt like that it would be too cluttered. I then added a radial gradient to have the number "16" on the cake be the main focal point of the artwork.
I've been on DA since May 27, 2011. So that's 5 years! I've even browsed on DA before I joined. So, a lot has changed.
