Some old stuff

These are some old work stuff that I'm only allow to publish recently. Some 3D work and photoshop paintings.

Yosemite Trip

I went to Yosemite for four days, I hiked the Naveda falls and got two very very sore legs. I also attended their free art classes and painted the falls with other artists. It's a good feeling to paint with other people, I just wish I can find paint buddies that also need to sleep in on the weekends. (I didn't like the little painting on the left corner but it'll be weird to leave it blank, so pretend you didn't see it.)

Lemons are hard

More like, painting translucence is hard. I will have to paint more lemons to practice that. I spend 2 hours fumbling with that lemon, I wish there was a translucence dial I can turn up for that material like I do at work. Oh hey but peppers are not easy either! Hi pepper!

Bunny looking far far away. Perhaps waiting for the train.

Oh man, I'm painting some weird stuff....

I wanted to say that I'm completely out of my comfort zone for doing these, but I don't really have a comfort zone to begin with... hmm. I guess everything in this real paint world is still very new to me, and that I haven't been practicing long enough. I'll be getting a new white lamp, so when I paint at night my whites can hopefully appear as white.

In other news, my boss lend me his advanced-level origami book on prehistoric dinosaurs, I was so excited about it that I ran my left arm into something hard. The bruise is turning yellow and slowly subsiding after a week.

Color exercise is tough

Oh man these color exercises are brutal. When I showed my watercolor book to Nathan, one of his comment was that I need to pay attention to color temperature, otherwise my warms and colds mix together and I get mud. And these exercises really exposed that. I need to think carefully and be aware of color temperature and don't mix them at random. Keep practicing!
