Ok this is a scene of mountains in Guilin, a province in China (I think it's a province..^^" me bad at geography). I copied it off a photograph...and erm..yea that's abt it.

Rough pencil sketch, then added water colours and then added lighting and adjustments on Photoshop CS.

yeah I suppose, my uncle bought one. its like a water filtering system, and you just put a water container on top of it and they have those lil switch for hot, warm, and cold water and it filters the water as it is poured into the cup.

Its so pretty. T__T *stares at it for hours* I think I'm not sitting at my computer anymore, feels like I'm in China again or in paradise. It reminds me of an island I went to in Thailand.

yeah, you gatta stay for a few days to get use to the air, and remember don't drink water from the tap. That's why they give you bottled water in the hotels.
