Project of a Lifetime

Several months back, my husband and I decided to start this life long project. It's our second actually. I've put a lot of time and energy into it so far, and Jamin has been working hard to help too. All of our hard work has paid off big time and we finished phase 1 of the project. Here's what we've got so far.

His name is Kyler Lamar Mills. Isn't he beautiful.

Delicious vs. Disgusting

The idea behind this piece is to use color to show the same food in the two different conditions; delicious and disgusting. The idea was to use color to demonstrate statements and reaction of color. The top one needs darker darks for contrast and I wish the kernels were smaller, and the bottom one needs more saturation to make the reaction more shocking. I just didn't know how to go about it without reaching for the Hue/Saturation slider, and I tried to just paint the whole thing rather than using shortcuts to help me understand the colors better.
