Congrats to D & A! :)

As I've been getting to explore more digital painting on my own, I find that I want to paint whenever possible. So I got on a roll this weekend and painted this for D & A's wedding. I'll be printing it out and framing it for them. Their wedding color was a muted green, so I thought I'd use that for the background. Also, the clothing wasn't as detailed so I decided to blur it on photoshop, so the focus could be on their faces. As I was finishing, I also played with the composition, and decided that I liked them on the left side of the frame.

Anyway, it was fun and I'll be doing more exploratory paintings...

D & A, we wish you the best and congratulations on your recent marriage! =)

Happy us. :)

I painted this on photoshop from a picture of me & craig for our 4th year's my first digital painting so I struggled a lot with it. Took me almost a week (or was it 2?) working at nights. I think I learned a lot from it. Hopefully it'll get a little bit easier as I keep doing this. He doesn't ever check my blog so I think it's safe to post it today...:)
