This is my "Hero Tree" project for Ani 113B. The original one was done in acrylic, but I didn't like the way how it turned out in the photos I took of it. So rather than use the original I decided to take this piece into Photoshop.
Over the summer I practiced portrait painting in Photoshop, and I think about, roughly, a month and a half into it I got sick of doing portraits. Then again I tried to challenge myself to trying to finish a piece once every two days. If anything I've learned that tweaking the brush settings is important to get different textures or else everything just falls flat while using the same brush.
Here's a parody music video made last year for the SJSU AACF (Asian American Christian Fellowship) promo video to describe the fellowship's theme. The song is a parody of Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night" which we changed to "Last Wednesday Night"; AACF meets on Wed. nights.
I helped my sister out with the animation sequences in the music video since they needed another animator. It was fun collaborating with my sister on this project and I hope to be able to work on more art related projects with her in the future.
