Peacock Feathers

I am pleased to say that my digital painting skills are starting to improve. From watching endless amounts of tutorials and figuring out the buttons on my tablet (Finally) I think I’m getting the hang of it 🙂

Also, I submitted my peacock to Threadless, an online site for t-shirt designs, and is now in the process of voting. If I get enough votes, Threadless will fund it so people can purchase it!

2015 Oscar Infographic

Hey everyone! Nicky here 🙂

I love the Oscars!

It is, I think, the only awards show I actually want to watch throughout the whole year. So, to prepare for the show happening February 22nd, I decided to create my own infographic showing the Top 10 most nominated films in the Oscars this year.

Here is the final:

Inkling

Hey Everyone!

This past Wednesday was December 25 aka Christmas; probably the one day a year that I can ask for anything that I want. In all honesty, I had a difficult time deciding on the gifts I wanted to receive from my family, mainly because I was pretty content with what I already had. Finally, I crafted a short list of items, including a Wacom Inkling.

What is an Inkling you ask?

Just watch this video:

Pretty cool right?

Well, on Christmas, this is one of the gifts I got from my family and it is quite INCREDIBLE!!!

Here’s the step by step of how it works:

  1. Sketch with pen and place receiver at the top of your page.

  2. Connect receiver to computer and import drawing

  3. Do whatever you want!
