MachinimUWA IV: Hypatia Pickens' 'Yeah'


"Yeah", is Hypatia Pickens sublime creation submitted to MachinimUWA IV: Art of the Artists, which unites the powerhouses of virtual worlds, Artists and Machinimatographers!

  1. Terrific paintings as well - you not only shot and edited a video response to the works, you drafted and painted responses too

  2. Thank you so much, guys! Yeah... painting those pictures held the machinima up for weeks. ;)
