encouraging friends // digital painting

School has started up again, hence the sudden quiet sleep that has descended upon both of my blogs.

It’s February, so all the students around America are beginning to causally lose it. Coffee intake is going up; hours of sleep are going down. Insanity is on the rise.


Here’s a challenge for you this week: every day, write a friend a “you can do it” note. Make the front cute and just write some words of encouragement. Doesn’t have to be anything fancy!! They’ll appreciate it, I can guarantee that!

This is a digital painting project I  just turned in today. We were given just the outlines of the building, so the beginning looked like a coloring page.

I really wanted to go for a watercolor feel so I downloaded the Kyle’s brushes available on the Adobe website. I’M SO EXCITED WITH HOW MY FINAL PRODUCT TURNED OUT.

I got a burst of inspiration. So I just went with it! I spent so many hours on it, and everyone was freaking out because, regardless, I got done before anyone else. I may or may not have been working on it during certain classes.


How do you encourage friends? Are you inspired right now? Or are you having writer’s/designer’s/human’s block?
