Yes, I love the Chinese lantern festivals, and thought to myself..."HOW AWESOME WOULD IT BE TO MAKE THEM 100 TIMES BIGGER AND THEN PUT THEM IN A GIANT FOREST." And so this painting was born...

I have never changed the composition of a painting so much, honestly more than ten times at least. Thanks to Maureen for teaching me that sometimes the best way to make your painting work is to destroy it. Falling in love with your initial ideas can be dangerous and keep it from reaching it's potential. One day I would love to go and actually see one of these festivals in the flesh.

Anyways, hope you enjoy it! And until next time...well Halloween is coming up and thus parties so...still stay thirsty my friends!

I'm in love with a robot!...head in a garage...

Title inspired by a sweet song! "The Girl and The Robot" Jean Elan Remix! Anyways.... ;)
Here is my layout I did for our assignment. We had to separate it into layers which was super annoying since I drew the entire thing on one page and then had to redraw half the background digitally. And yes the perspective is wonky in some areas, got a bit lazy. I especially butchered the Nissan GTR, will fix that. But is done, can't say the same for the painted version, we'll save that for another post. Until next time, stay thirsty my friends!
