trials and tribulations



I recently decided that photoshop knowledge, while being very useful by itself, is not enough if I really want to upgrade myself as an artist. So I decided to take a stab at the more traditional media, and am taking oil paint workshops. These are my first attempts.

It's a tricky medium, but I'm (very slowly) getting the hang of it.

alice


I have wanted to take a stab at designing Alice's wonderland for a while, but it never really came to be. So now I have some spare time available to invest in this.

This is the first basic sketch of Alice. I'm trying to be faithful to the story, and so my alice is more or less based on Alice Liddell, the little girl that was Lewis Carol's inspiration for the character.
