Conceptual illustration, the original base painting by my classmate Yu Xuan: [link]
First time painting so much glass, nearly died. orz
I focused more on getting the colours right. Also tried painting with a default hard brush and gradient tool only. Halfway I switched from Photoshop CS3 to Painter in order to prevent a broken neck. =____=;;;;
This was quite enjoyable to paint despite having a bad flu and pressing project deadlines. This painting was also featured as Image of the Day by ImagineFX on 8th February 2011.
Hope you like this~
