April 30, 1999
I did this picture to enter an online CG contest my friend, Bao
Ngo, held for May. The rule was to draw one of Bao's original
characters. I used a lot of PhotoShop's Gaussian Blur feature to
make the even textured skin tone. The background is an actual photo of
a red orchid, which i motion-blurred and adjusted to a magenta shade.
