Digital Caricatures for Elizabeth Arden

On Saturday 17th.  I was referred to them by Sharon Tang, a talented caricature artist. Thanks Sharon!
This is the setting:

These are the caricatures I drew:

it was a quiet period I drew this just to keep myself busy.

This gentleman apparently bought the product just so that he could be drawn by me.  Then he told me that he's seen me a few times before, in Portrait After Dark.  I was so pleasantly surprised, and kind of ...well, I don't know.  I guess I had a fleeting moment of feeling famous :P!

The Making of: The Onigiris' Visit

This is a post documenting the process of The Onigiris' Visit.  It is not going to be full of technical information, but just what was going through my mind at that time.

I painted this picture almost entirely in OpenCanvas, only because this program automatically records the process of the painting, called 'events', which can be saved into this file format called 'event file' and played back, which makes it very easy to be recorded and mixed into a video, which I planned to do and upload to YouTube.

Alas, it wasn't meant to be.  I copied some part of it, edited in Photoshop, copied that edited image and pasted it back on OpenCanvas (Photoshop is a lot better for precision and colour adjustment), and I totally screwed the event file up.  For some reason OpenCanvas cannot handle that. UGH! SO MUCH FRUSTRATION!  Cue tearing out my hair...naw just kidding. I put in way too much work on my hair to justify pulling it out.

Anyway, here's the next best thing.
