--------------------------
(I explained the drawing in a story-like form. hope that still counts :blush:)

Remember how when you were a child and you could put two completely unrelated things together and create stories that could go on and on? This drawing shows something similar to that.

***

4 children living in a small, colorless village received gifts from a nearby festival, 2 fish kites and 2 umbrellas. They were amazed by the bright and beautiful colors, since they've never seen anything like it before. It was almost as if they were... magical. Knowing that the items they had were only a minor part of the festival, they began to wonder in awe of what it would be like to attend such a wonderful event. One by one, they closed their eyes and began to imagine what was at the festival, from the lovely geisha's and bright paper lanterns to the elaborate koi fish ponds and delicious sushi plates. They made everything in their imaginative festival spontaneous and colorful, and even gave the two umbrellas the ability to fly. When the children finally ran out of breath and exhausted their imaginative capacity, they opened their eyes and saw before them the festival, their magical festival, brought to life by color~

Haha, I bet a DD is better than what you probably would have gotten if you got first place. Maybe the 2nd place was portending something great. Who knows?

Magnificent piece by the way. It deserves first place in ANY contest. :) :heart:
