Since I suck at traditional painting, maybe (without wasting money) digital painting would be good practice. This is the (5 hour) start of a thumbnail I started in my Moleskine. I've still got a LONG way to go, but it's been pretty fun for the most part! (I should be reading a world lit only by fire...but I'm procrastinating with practice)
Crap I'm going to have to upload the image later! it's not working right now :/ enjoy this instead
I had to do an assignment for my software class turning myself into a zombie. It was fun learning how to use textures to manipulate a photo.
