Yep still posting: Elias Island Special Projects (oops meant Ellis Island... whatever)

 Hey still alive and posting, This semester I enrolled in a special arts class that was only available this semester. The instructor is William Low a very talented painter and illustrator  you can check out his work . What makes this special is while he teaches us his techniques in both the digital and traditional media students get work on pieces based on a central subject matter. The subject is Ellis Island at the end of the semester we will have a body of work that will have its own show ( we have no idea where could be just a school show or whatever). So here was our first assignment



 First assignment was to use a reference picture he supplied and recreate the image on photoshop. I have always wanted to use photoshop but ended up getting overwhelmed by all the bells and whistles. I have learned a lot of practical tips and tricks that helped remove all the smoke and mirrors I couldn't see  This was good assignment that got me out of the shell.
