Dum Spiro, Spero by thecapturedspy Dum Spiro, Spero by thecapturedspy
While I breathe, I hope.

Hugo Cabret, as portrayed by Asa Butterfield in Martin Scorsese's Hugo. Excellent, excellent film.

Getting the hang of this digital portrait thing. I've noticed that when I attempt photorealism, I don't like it. I keep smudging things on purpose to get that painterly feel. I'm okay with this, but I guess if I want to do photorealism I'll have to beat myself into it or something. XD
