All Hail Maccha and Hiro.

We have these 2 friends, they're fury, cut as hell and can literally make us crawl and beg for their attention. Wait, is that how friends treat each other? Whatever, they're sooooo cute. So naturally, we thought they deserved paintings. 

Maccha and Hiro are Instagram stars with personalities to match. We wanted to help capture some of that personality in a painting so we worked with their humans through Depicteur Studios and landed on some wonderful concepts. Maccha truly does act like a queen. Not bratty but sort of this kind, polite sass. Hiro has a bit more of an adventurous vibe. Like he's gonna save the world or something. 

Check their Instagram pages out and follow them. Their captions are wonderful and why wouldn't you guys want to see these two pop up in your feed?

Do You Feel The Bern?!

Well do ya? We do! How could you not after you peep this sick painting.

The Depicteur team and the mighty fine folks over at Reddit's PSbattle teamed up to host a Weekly Battle contest where the winning entry would win a painted version of their submission. We had a lot of awesome work entered and some truly worthy images. But triumphant was Reddit user and Photoshop sensei, MrFlopkins! 

Here's a super sophisticated GIF to show you the transformation. Truly a masterpiece. Water into wine. Magnificent! 

For us, this was such a fun process and all the mods over at PSbattle were such a freakin pleasure to deal with. We just might have to host another one. Gear up Photoshop nerds if you want a painting of that sweet comp.
