I wander around the internet a lot, usually to things on Pinterest or links from the blogs I read. I'm also trying to find new ways to improve my art process. And that's when I discovered that I actually like watercolors.
For years I belittled watercolors as something you used if you couldn't afford other paints. I didn't mean to be like that, I just hadn't seen how beautiful watercolor could be with the work I already do. Pinterest is full of art like that. I have been humbled.
And then I remembered I still had some watercolor sets from high school and I went crazy! I think I'll be incorporating watercolor into my sketch process more often.
|This one looks better in the sketchbook. Less bruised...|
|She's the best one I did. And the first. I'm not sure I improved or not.|
|This was the last of my face studies. I think I was getting tired because she's way messier than I'd normally let happen. By the way, this is my character Firestorm.|
|This is Ayseirah. I did her before Firestorm and she was turning out really well until I did the hair behind her face. Don't get your paper too wet...|
|Here's my character, Lark. I'm bummed the picture turned out really blurry because she is the best one of the bunch, especially since she has white hair. The blue worked perfectly as the shade color.|
|This is Laine. I'm most proud of her because she's not a dark brunette like most of my lead females and it worked fabulously.|
|Yay Meira has green eyes! She was the first one face I painted. I really struggled with her hair when I drew it and then again when I painted it. Curse you fauxhawks!|
|This is my Fluttershy cosplay redesign in color. Unfortunately, the color was eaten by the digital process.|
