7 shots of Ada Hayden

Again, mucking around with filters. Not surprisingly, using a yellow + blue combo along with a polarizer is better than using a green filter in order to get a greenish effect.

Cloudless sunset

Cloudless skies are not the best conditions for photographing sunsets. That said, with a heavy dose of CPL, this is the best I could do :(

Charcoal and chalk

First attempt at making a sketch with charcoal and chalk. Ran out of patience towards the end and messed up. Notes to self -

1) Need a better way to "make" colored paper than simply paint it. Might try colored washes
2) Got the facial expressions okay, especially for the girl on left. Messed up the one on right somewhat
) Should stop if I run out of patience rather than ruin the entire picture *biggest lesson learnt here*
4) Need to observe what women wear a bit more carefully. Kind of clueless about sketching the dresses

update !!

Lifting 165 lbs over your head can cause some damage if something goes wrong. But at least the splint looks cool :)

'dem boats

The original version I painted looks much better than this snap. Poor light :(
