Here is another painting I did for Don Seegmiller’s workshop. This painting stuff is a lot of fun, but it can be a bit frustrating at times… it’s tough to know when to stop noodling the painting. I suppose that is why you save often – that way you can back up to a previous version. There are also a hundred million different ways to approach a painting… light direction, paint quality, style, and the list goes on and on… I suppose that knowing what to do and when to do it comes with practice.

Oh, by the way, if you tried playing my Hover World mini-game that I uploaded (see below) and if you had trouble steering… just remember to tap the left and right turn – it’s a bit easier than holding those keys down for a length of time (also, I find using the mouse above ground is easier than below). So, did you find the tunnels? Did you find the ‘purple lizard dog’ in the cage in the tunnels? There are a bunch of things that I’d change on it now that it’s done (mainly in the control of the hover craft), but it’s a lesson learned and it’s time to move on to bigger and better things.
