Digital painting, that's what.
These were all done using photoshop. The first painting was for my digital illustration class. We had to paint a landscape twice, each portraying dawn or dusk. The project gave me the tools and knowledge to do a digital painting, but the next three paintings of the snow scapes were the real catalysts that got the ball rolling. I painted the first snow scape for fun, and then decided to make a storyline out of it. I guess the story is about a lost soul searching for something. I started painting on my free time and from what I noticed, I got exponentially better after completing each painting. The last painting was done straight from my mind, which was nice because it showed me how creative I could be. The face came out too Asian, though.
I always wanted to get into digital painting, but I didn't know where to start. Sure, I could have watched tutorials online... but that never occurred to me. Learning how to do it has opened a door of possibilities for me. A door I plan on walking through.
