Breakfast with Grandpa

This is a re-creation of an adorable picture that I found in an old children's book. I used watercolors and indian ink.

Practice II

This is a re-creation of a picture by another artist. The original picture is a computer generated image, and I just wanted to see how close I could get to it using watercolors.

Practice with Disney Characters

Nothing special, just some watercolor practice with Disney characters.

Photoshoped Pumpkin & Happy Halloween

Right now I'm on a self teaching high, if I can teach myself to sew (which is going very well), then I believe I can teach myself anything. Moving forward with that ideology, my newest project is to teach myself Photoshop CS5. Not an easy task, but after week 1 I'm off to a great start thanks to "Photoshop CS5: The Missing Manual" by Lesa Snider (very informative book that was 100% worth the $32 I paid) and YT tutorials by (great tutorials, because they speak slowly, provide great explanations and have focused, well filmed screen shots). So, thanks to tutcast, here is the before and after of the photoshop carved pumpkin that I made. Enjoy!
