so this is what i was up to in my digital illustration class for the past few weeks! we were given a few pieces of Gary Soto writings and asked to render either a kitchen or garage set in Fresno, California around the 1950s based on those writings. one of the pieces was set around the protagonist going into his cluttered garage, climbing over junk, to get to a deflated inner tube that he wanted to bring to a pool party soooo i went with that lol. i’ve never painted something to this scale digitally before and it was… an experience lol. i’ve never been very good at color but hey i gave it my best.
