As part of a school assignment I was taught how to create custom brushes, paint in strokes over a photo, and I was allowed to choose my own subject. Picking my gorgeous and photogenic wife enjoying her favorite meal ever (my mothers Sloppy Joes) I then proceeded to lose myself. The original image is HUGE and I have plans to have it printed to a nice wrap frame. It was extremely tedious to paint each stroke and some of them were painted multiple times in order to get the colors right.
