Strange Sight

So here's something interesting. The other day I'm driving down this long road, on my way to a Christmas party I'm drawing for. As I'm driving I happen upon something I never thought in my wildest dreams I would ever see. I couldn't tell what it was from far away, but as I get closer I just can't believe what's in front of me: there is a real camel sitting in an old brightly colored school bus! So as I'm driving behind it and at the same time I'm fumbling to find my camera, because I know that later on I'll just think I imagined the whole thing. So here is the proof for the world to see. Enjoy.

Photoshop landscapes

I was inspired by a post on Marco Bucci's blog and Xiangyuan Jie. So I used some photos from my trip to Los Angeles a few months ago, and tried to do some small photoshop sketches. I tried really hard to NOT use the eyedropper tool, but I did end up using it quite a bit. I spent about 20 minutes on each one. I've never really just tried to do any landscape stuff just for the sake of the landscape before. Honestly I barely put any backgrounds in anything I do, which is not a good thing. I would really like to get a better grasp of light and color as well. Plus I live in friggin Florida and this place has plenty of great landscapes to paint, so I guess I don't have any excuses. Enjoy!
