I eat pixels for lunch

I am a rusty machine that never sleeps. I follow a boring routine. Wake. Eat. Work. Sleep. Repeat. The only part of the day that has a a lot of life is when I spend time with my son.

That has been my life ever since I graduated from college.  Yes, I usually spend most of my time in front of the computer writing articles and mostly Photoshopping.

To others, my life seems so boring. Some would even say that I must get a life. But hey, I am actually doing something worthwhile, something that makes me happy, and it's something that I love.

And from that moment, I know they are wrong.

I have a life. This is how I chose to live my life. I am happy with it.

Anyway, enough of that drama-rama. Last week, I was able to make my first digital painting. And I like how it turned out. I still need a lot of practice though.

scanned a sketch. sketch is not mine. i just borrowed it from a friend. :)

added colors. and a bit of details on the trunk/branches so that i would be guided.

brush.erase.brush.erase.brush.erase.smudge.dodge. and repeat until i get what i wanted

added vibrance.

made it more detailed, especially the leaves. took me a long time to do this. varying tones and colors are my weaknesses

finished product! whew!
