Man I had this longass description written down here and then when I tried to submit this my internet fucked up and now I'm too damn lazy to write it all again...

This is a piece done for the Aqua Leung contest over at the Satellite Soda forums. Make sure to head on over to the thread and check the other entries as well: [link]

Pencils: Chris Copeland
Colors by me, in Photoshop CS.

Aqua Leung is created by Mark Smith (of the Amazing Joy Buzzards fame) and Paul Maybury . Added bonus for me on this piece is that I needed another new painting for my portfolio which I'm putting together to apply to colleges right now. Keeping my fingers crossed on that one!

Why are you even applying to college? Seriously? You've got it all figured out, and only practice will take care of the rest. I guess college can be a good incentive to draw and paint, but that's pretty much it I think for someone of your level...

Art is all about educating the eye and self-discipline for you now.

Ah also, at college, there are girls.

Ok, go to college if you can afford it then.

Ah, I forgot: great colors as always, stronger than the drawing itself.

Well for one it's kind of a whole broadening my perspective thing. If I surround myself with people that have similar goals and ambitious, the input and influence I'll get on my work will be totally different. There are somet things I'd never even think of, and personally I think I'll learn much more much faster in a creative environment than alone at home. Also I want to buy myself some time before I rush into the job world, that shit will come soon enough anyways, no need to speed it up even further.

True enough I guess. But a studio is also a creative environment ;) And it will pay you to do stuff it asks you for (and not the other way around).

But yeah, I totally understand where you are coming from, the main thing Uni will make you do is PRACTISE. And this is precisely the key. I'm very curious to see where this will bring you!

Best of luck for your application (secretely, I'm not worried one bit hehe, I know you'll pass with flying colours!)
