Happy Niu Year by Grishend Happy Niu Year by Grishend
新年快乐!
恭喜发财, 身体健康, 歲歲平安, 年年有餘。

Speed painting done for the Chinese New Year. This is my first ever speed painting and first ever picture made for Chinese New Year. Anyhow, Happy New Year to anyone who celebrates it!

P.S.: Title is not a typo. "Niu (牛)" means ox/cow in Chinese, and this year is an ox/cow year.

Time taken: Roughly 2 hours.
Programs used: OpenCanvas 4.03, Adobe Photoshop 7.0

I give permission for :iconchinart-club: to post this art into their gallery.

This is a pretty neat picture, especially since it is your first time using the program and the first time you tried making a picture for this holiday! I must say, it is rather simple, but I like how you did it. The colors look lovely. :heart:
