Thanks! Though I was aiming for the perspective mostly. Don't feel like I practice enough of that.

(Thought it was a photo from the thumbnail!)

I really like the inkblots which seem to fall down from above- very apocalypse-esque- and you've created a great contrast between light and dark, so the sun rays look brilliant and bright :heart:

Ah thank you Lovely! I did use a photo to paint this, but it's far from it. Really just wanted to capture the perspective, as I don't seem to practice enough. Glad it worked out. Took some thinking.

How've you been, math genious? :)

Most welcome- what's the fun in creating something that looks EXACTLY like a photo? I'm not super into ULTRA realism :p

I've been a busy busy mathsy bee! Got some computing projects to do and exams when Easter break is over...had some time to do some folding though, which has been AWESOME. ^___________^
And yourself? <3

Ultra realism in painting shows skill, but it's boring. It's what you have a camera for, hehe :D Only ordered myseld a 6D last Sunday, can't wait! Farewell, old 400D.

Yup, saw the effects, it's incredible! So crazy-tiny. No Easter break where I work I'm afraid, but it's ok. They pay well. I'm also developing new skills, which I'm terrible at. Next Thursday I'm supposed to deliver a short presentation about the project we've been working on to about 200 people. And it turns out I'm not a very good public speaker (very nervous, shaky hands, sweaty forehead, blush, lol). So, new skill is - how to smuggle a small bottle of vodka, and have a few shots before it starts?? Any tips on that? ;)

Oooooh I am very envious! Getting serious about the camera now? :eager:

Predrinking seems like the way to go...what time does the presentation start? :lol:
200 people is a pretty big deal so firstly, congrats on having to make this presentation in the first place!

Whenever I've had to present stuff or do public speaking, I always try to track down someone in the audience who I know and whom I can fix my eyes on when I'm getting nervous (they usually make encouraging faces during the talk, which helps =P). And...I guess just remember that this isn't the be all, end all of your LIFE or anything. It's just a few short minutes on stage and then whoosh, you're free again! :dance:

I borrowed Nikon D800 to take photos at out annual party in Feb, and I just can't get back to the old 400D. It's just not the same anymore! Something's missing. So, going fullframe :)

Hahaha that might work! Though my stupid friends will probably just make funny faces. Might be a good thing, will keep my blood pressure down. These are the people I work with. They all know me, but I know very few. I know the names, yes, but no idea what these people look like. Sort of comes with what I do. Yeah, a glass of wine should do the trick :) still have till next Thursday to prepare!

Hmm, sometimes I really feel the crop, but I put up with it. One day (hopefully) I'll join you in the wondrous land of full-framedness...:ahoy:

:hug: You'll be just fine, Kari, try and have fun with it!
