School assignment: Digitally paint an homage or parody in the style of any artist, taking into consideration their technique, content, subject matter, and use of color and light. Rockwell was an ambitious choice because he's incredibly hard to duplicate, and obviously I waited until 9pm to start it. And I just finished. And it's 3:46.

Thank god for 5-hour energy shots. Omgz.

Amazing, you actually managed to pull it off! Rockwell was the first thing that popped into my head when i saw the thumbnail. I think that's a testament to a successful duplication of his style, bravo :clap:

Awesome as always! I'll have to check into this artist; their style seems rather interesting as does you take on his subject matter. I might have to try this color scheme, really light yet heavy at the same time.

Btw, you said you attended NYC state right? Might know a person of the name "Aya Encena?"

Even though I'm a fan, here comes some critique! Ho-snap! ... :
... He's not holding the umbrella.... ?
If he isnt supposed to, good on you. If he is... then there is a tiny error. It looks like it is behind his hand... :/

Yeah I noticed that a bit too late haha. It's fixed on the print but not on the deviation. I suppose I'll get to that later when I'm slightly less lazy ^_^

You didnt have to~ (especially since you had edited it for the print). It was just a perfectionist with an eye out for tiny flaws. It comes with the eye that is also easily pleased by the simple things. :'D

But yeah... thanks for not being lazy. Something that I know oh too well. C:
