Street fighter challenge- Chun Li

Where did sexy go?

While on my colour high, watching Kung Fu Panda the other night has gotten me even more stoked about learning (more) about colout theory! That film was truley lush.

After doing this painting, im starting to see where i could hae improved my Pharrell attempt (...he looks too rubbery me thinks).
I'm gonna keep trying.

Caricature and Painting

After listening to some great Joe Bluhm videos...

Um...he's a music artist.

Hello...2008, the story thus far

Hi blogreader,

I thought i'd take the time out to share a little bit about whats been going on for myself so far in 2008.

So i've taken the gamble and travelled back to Vancouver after a great year in 2007; gamble as i only had a 1 month animation contract as a draw card.

I want to continue to grow as an artist, and as a person, and i thought the best way was to keep throwing myself at challenges and risks.

If you think there is something you would like to see on my blog, or things you could suggest about my art, please comment and construct!

A challenge that i have set for myself is to learn more about colour and painting. There seems to be a recent influx of great colour and painterly work that has just blown me away. And i've been listening to some very inspiring youtube tutorials by digital painters Bobby Chiu and Joe Bluhm.

I recomend for any artist to watch or atleast listen to this particular video by Bobby (aprx. 40min!) He talks about finding and rekindling that passion for art.

Hope we continue to inspire each other friend!

-May Wa
