The Sweet Life by awkwardalpaca The Sweet Life by awkwardalpaca
What would be sweeter than drinking a Dr Pepper alongside the silhouette of New York City? I'm guessing not much.
There are 23 bottles of Dr Pepper - representing the 23 flavors in Dr Pepper. The straws make up the silhouette of NYC!
I drew this with pens and colored pencils, since I don't have any cool digital art things ]: But I almost prefer working with traditional media [:
And that's me standing on top of the 23 bottle caps drinking from one of the bottles!!
I hope you guys like it! I had a lot of fun making it!
[:



EDIT: WHAT?! I can't believe i'm one of the 15 semifinalists :DDDD I'm SOO excited right now! Go traditional art!! And thank you for all of these wonderful and supportive comments, they mean a lot to me!!

Out of the 15 left, I said that yours and Gramps were the 2 best; the 2 that actually look like a mural and followed the rules. The other 13, while nice to look at, don't deserve the win. And while Gramps is nice and I like the sentiment touch, yours would look the best in New York! So please promise me one thing: YOU WIN THE CONTEST!
