A Flower that Huong Cheng chose for everyone to paint during one of our hangouts.
Not too bad for a quick painting.

MoonRise Kingdom


Study of a shot from Moonrise Kingdom. The composition of this shot is pretty simple, so I tried to focus on picking accurate colors. It was... difficult to say the least. There is this sort of "yellow haze" over everything and it really made me think about how to achieve that with the color picker in photoshop. I also did this because my friend Melissa really likes this movie!

GlassWare Still Life
   Hello Everyone! Over Winter Break I've been painting digital still lives in order to further my artistic eye, and to better understand Photoshop! I created a"Digital Painting Club" where I assign topics and hold little hangouts (Google Hangout, Tues/Thurs @ 6PM) and i'm really happy with the enthusiasm people have shown! Critiques flow freely and I think people are really learning and growing from the experience! Good Job everyone!!

   Hopefully, I'll be able to keep this up throughout the rest of the year!!
