Ok, so I've been taking this class from Sam Nielsen (plug!) who is an incredible digital painter. We've been discussing the properties of light and the way they interact with surfaces, which while enlightening, has made a bi-hemispherical omelette of my brain. Resultingly, I've been trying to sort out some of the thoughts from class this week, and I thought it would be useful to do so on a simple form. My girlfriend's grandparent's were kind enough to visit us on campus this week and bring some fresh-picked tomatoes (et. al) from their garden! It was an opportunity I couldn't pass up. Thanks Baa -Chan and Jii-Chan!
