Post Numero Uno!

So...I suppose this is now my first ever post on, practically, my first ever blog! Here is where I'll (hopefully) post art of mine for friends, family and random passers-by to know what I've been up to in my artistic world. :) For this post I think I'll just put up a work in progress of the banner I made for myself over the course of today and yesterday.

More than once has my mom stated how much she wants miniature elephants to exist. Since such a creature will not be a part of our world in the unforeseeable future, having them exist within an art piece is an acceptable alternative, no? I just wanted something fun and cute as a banner, so this is what I came up with. I wasn't too focused on anatomy of the elephants and whatnot, as there was no need to be. A friend of mine pointed out that there's a ton of water pouring out of that bowl, probably more than the bowl would allow, but heck - art goes beyond such laws of the universe! In hindsight I could have made the water a bit transparent, but ehhh whatever, it's just a header! Hopefully there's nothing I want to change, because I mistakenly destroyed the PSD file just a few minutes ago... 
All of the pieces that I digitally color end up being very softly shaded. It's just what happens when you pair me up with Photoshop. Many times I've told myself that I'll try to develop another, more painterly, digital coloring style, but I have yet to actually do just that.
