He Who Follows the Wind

Something I did whilst being caught up in the olympics hype. The news that Liu Xiang was forced out of his competition by injury was pretty devastatng. But he is still a great hero of the games.
I tried a few different techniques on this piece, which was referanced. I think I learnt a thing or two more about lighting. Painting skintones is something I need to get to grips with better though I think I picked up bits about it in this study. Played around with some filters on this too :P

A Journey to the East

Inspired by a recent trip to Hong Kong and China. I tried out some new ideas here. I dont use adjustment layers much but thought it would help here and the experimentations helped me to discover some new things. Whoop Whoop!
