YAY I’ve finally drawn something! :D

It was so nice to bust out the watercolors. I really have Dustin Nguyen to thank because I was checking out his recent work and his watercolor paintings always inspire me. Anyway, I’ve always liked Psylocke (she has an awesome costume AND nice hair, ha) so I decided to draw her. I also wanted to use this new paper that I got called Yupo paper. It’s super smooth and not very absorbent, but it’s advertised as “suitable for all watercolor techniques” so I gave it a go. I’m digging the smooth finish, but the absorbency is another issue. Next time I will have to try hotpress watercolor paper… well, after I get some money, ha!

Also, the colors look way better in real life… much more saturated than what my terrible scanner produced here. :\

Watercolors Again

I got bored and came up with this. I’m still trying to figure out the secrets to watercolors. Meh.

So after a the successful completion of my final project, I rewarded myself with a brand-spanking-new set of watercolors because A) most people have confused my work being a watercolor painting, B) Dustin Nguyen is an idol of mine and he uses watercolors beautifully, and C) I use inks the same way as watercolors, so I wanted to see how my pictures would look in this medium.

My conclusion: WATERCOLORS ARE FUN AND AMAZING. Go buy yourself a set.

On a random note, can anybody tell me what exactly the difference is between watercolor and inks? Anybody?

By the way, I was burned out on drawing men from the final project, so I drew just women today. :P


Left to Right:

Poison Ivy: She has the honor of being my very first watercolor. The rest of her body turned out hella wonky because I did this and the others in pen against all better judgement. Also, this pen likes water, making the ink smear. I kind of liked the effect it created though.

Wonder Woman: Here the pen became an issue because WW looks freaking blue… but she was a fun test subject. I like her hair; normally I draw her with wavy hair.

Selina Kyle: I always imagined her as a blonde with longish hair, rather than the more modern black-hair-boy-cut femme fatale she’s being portrayed as. Anyway, the black again smeared into her eyes. My bad.

X: I like to draw hair.
