Anything painted directly, on the spot, always has a strength, a power, a lively touch that is lost in the studio. Your first impression is the right one. Stick to it and refuse to budge.
- Eugene Boudin
Nothing makes me so happy as to observe nature and to paint what I see.

    Cool Pix!!! It´s way cool, but is it computer-drawn or drawn by hand? I´m always curious about that.

    I don’t know about this image specifically, but my impression is that most of these are drawn on paper first, then scanned and finished in Photoshop. See the links in the article to Tutorials and in the first comment to instructional DVDs.

    Also see my more recent post about Feng Zhu’s involvement with Gamma Ray Studios.
