From my own experience, I find using 2 layers of glow effect works better for painting glowing sunset artwork. One layer with "overlay" blend mode to bring up the saturation and tint the surrounding area. Another layer with "Linear Dodge" to brighten up the artwork.

I am always interest in using 3D to render a 2D painterly anime style background. This is due to the strong re-usability of 3D assets. Here are some of my Blender3D test to render 2D foliages. The main objective is to avoid the use of texture plane and uv projection mapping method, which I am pretty sure it will give a 2D look easily at the cost of more limited camera movement in the 3D space.
Did this test last year to see if Blender3D can be use to render anime style cityscape scene. The result is quite good to be use a starting point for paint over. I believe if more time are spend on the 3d side, we can skip the 2D paint over process.
I was trying to use Blender3D procedural texture to generate an anime style sky and cloud, so I can save time on painting them. The result turn out ok only but I guess it could be use as a starting point for a sky painting.
Lots of peoples were crazy about the Flappy Bird game a while ago. Although some said the gameplay itself are not that original, but I think it is a interesting game to be recode. So, I spend a saturday night in 2014 to remake this game together with some small changes.

Did this quick landscape painting using default Photoshop brush. In my painting, I used 3 different default brush tips from Photoshop which are, Chalk, Round and Grass. It is possible to paint with just one type of brush tip, as I had seen some peoples did that.
Sometime when my friends were talking about latest films they watched in cinema, I felt a bit left out as I don't watch that much films. I post this comic online, seem like a lot of people can relate themself to this situation too.

Pipe Dream (Pipe Mania) is one of my favourite puzzle game that I played during the DOS game era. In this game, player have to construct a path from the starting pipe for the ongoing water, which will begins to flush after a short delay time. I am always interest with its game logic and mechanic. So, I spend some time to redevelop part of this game with Flash AS3 in 2012.
