    simplistic style, and
    pure fun with colors and shapes...
    all this together creates beautiful artwork that inspires!

    Man, I knew it was just a matter of time before you got an ESB. Your brush strokes look as juicy as ever man!

    ZhuZhu,

    I like your new black and white sketch. The question I have, and hopefully I can get some tutorial from you is: How do you construct the complex form with planes.

    In the hands area, I only see planes and a beautiful hand. Do you have some type of workshop for us to try or practise?

    Is there any book that illustrate that approach?

    Thanks

    Oooh, that woman "in" the red background is just so awesome! The red works for her whole look! I want to use those brushes, but I can't. I have an earlier PS version. Beh!!
