Ramen Noodles watercolor by pikajane Ramen Noodles watercolor by pikajane
The first assignment in my watercolor 2 class last semester was to take a photo of some food packaging, and paint it. The assignment itself was simple, but the execution was very time consuming.

I decided to paint ramen noodles because as a poor college student, this is an embodiment of my diet. I put at least 15 hours of work into this and I am really thrilled with the final result.

Wow, this came out amazing! Very realistic. The lighting and shadows are amazing, and i find that watercolors are extremely hard to work with so kudos to you!

Nice composition! I love Ramen! My personal favorite is creamy chicken flavor! I'm not much of the cup-o-ramen fan. Check out ramen girl: [link]

Also a Sailor Mercury picture that made me think of you: [link]

WHOA!!!

At first I was looking through my messages, and I saw this random picture of a whole bunch of Ramen, and I thought "What? Who randomly took a picture of some Ramen? Were they trying to take a shot at photography?" Then I saw your username. Then I thought, "What? I don't think they do photography... Right? This isn't even a good photograph..."

... Then I saw "watercolor" in the title.

... Then I clicked on it.

... Then I saw the page load.

... Then my brain gasped ten million times.

... It's a not a photograph at all... It's a painting.



YOU. ARE. AMAZING!!!

Yeah, photography isn't my thing. I took a stab at it briefly in high school but it's not my gift. I definitely enjoy watercolors more!

Hah, well this is amazing!! I'm GLAD I clicked on it. XD You're awesome with watercolors AND etch-a-sketch! Speaking of which, how long does it take you to do your etch-a-sketch stuff? You're FRIGGIN' AMAZING. O___o

most of my stuff on the pocket size etch a sketch takes around 1-3 hours, sometimes more, sometimes less.
When it gets to the travel and classic etch a sketches, I can take from 3 to 10 hours...sometimes even longer!

Ah, wow!! XD That's a lot of patience! I knew Etch-A-Sketch was fun, but who knew someone could make such amazing work out of it? X3 Seriously, that's an awesome art medium.
