Something I'm working on! This is the first time I paint a night-time scene (as far as I remember). There's much work ahead, I've just started it. I hope I'll finish it!

An unfinished self protrait. Used just a mirror to draw it, and I wasn't liked how the coloring was turning out (surprise!), so I decided to scrap it. But since it doesn't look like total crap, I decided to put it here.
Currently I'm trying to confince my dad to lend me some money to buy an Xbox 360. Dunno if he'll agree! I want to buy it just to play Soul Calibur 4 and Banjo-Kazooie. I hope the console has more games I like.

My piggy bank! I wanted to paint from real life, this piggy was right there looking at me, so I decided to paint it. Up to 160 reais (aprox. 89 usd) fit in this little bank :3
I also discovered that turning both "shape dynamics" and "other dynamics" on give a very nice painterly effect. I might use it again.

The first one of a collection that will soon grow. That was me giving a try at realistic painting. And, as always, it turned out horrible.
I really hate it when a painting doesn't turn out as I envisioned it. Even worse is when it also turns out bad. I guess it's just a matter of practice, but it sure gets frustrating sometimes.
Gonna go test some random brushes on Painter now.
