There's Nothing on TV

My wife and I have our TV shows, but we decided to watch them online after they air and not sign up for cable after we moved. It's such a relief to not have constant TV commercials blaring through the house. Woo hoo, Hulu.com!

Quick study painted in Photoshop CS3.

Nice, I really the textured paint strokes in there. The lighting sets a nice mood too

nice job...How long did it take to do? did you bring your Cintiq home or was it the WACOM?

Thanks, guys!

Dad - No I used my Wacom Intuos3 and it took me longer than it should have. I probably spent 45 minutes on it whereas I could have cut that time in half had I really been focusing. I think I was painting more for the therapeutic brain massage than actually designing and painting a meaningful piece.

Since you don't have a cable now you have the time to paint the TV insted of watching it. Nice painting and marvelous idea. I am tempted to get rid of the cable as well. Maybe one day,

Thanks, Dorota. Yeah, it's a real relief to "unplug". A lot less distractions and as I stated in the post, No blaring commercials. I hate commercials...unless they're really funny.

Nice! If that's the same model television I have in my living room, it's quite heavy....not so nice.
