Everybody get out there and make a picture of your mom for her birthday. Follow my example...I'm looking in your direction, Georgie Porgie.

wow, that is really really awesome, aaron.

question- just noticed the texture of the background couch on the left of your mom seems to only be there? or you didn't want to distract the faces by continuing it across? it kinda distracted/confused me a bit, but not a biggie. good stuff overall though, me likes.

chris chUa! said...

oh and I meant to say I like all the different subtle colors and that you kept it texture-y and didn't super blend.

Aaron said...

Na. The texture looks like that cuz the painting isn't quite finished. Good eye, Chris.
