The Sun Conure Parrot
This project was to do a realistic rendering of any animal/insect of your choice.
now when I look at it again, I see so many mistakes :(

The Sun Conure Beauty
This is the final of that class, we had a choice to use the animal we picked from the previous assignment and make it into a product/character, or to make a CD cover/book cover.
I kinda combined the 2. To fit the elements of the Sun Conure Parrot completely with my character, I gave her red hair, fur(feather) coat and purple stockings.

I also wanted to mimic the styles of Gustave Klimt and the way he incorporates gold, but personally I don't think I did that good of a job.

Head n Hands 2 FINAL!!

omg, this took waayyyyy too long, I think I spent about 25 hours on it! This of course counting in the couple of hours I screwed up and had to fix it.
"funny" story though, so on the day I had to turn it in, I decided to varnish it in the morning.
During the simple process, I accidentally dropped my picture reference into my palette. i didn't think much of it and just roughly wiped it off. But when I was finally done with everything, I used my picture reference to fan my painting, and a HUGE CHUNK OF BLUE PAINT landed right on my nose of the painting!!!!!!
I had to scrape the blue paint off, and repaint the nose :(
All and all, I'm happy with it, Tae suggested me to touch it up a little bit more. (on the left pinky) then maybe submit it to a contest or something.
