Inktober day 16: A NEWT. He’s a magic newt.
Late night ink-a-thing - FW Prussian Blue ink and brush. I haven’t drawn the magpie lady in a really long time.
Watercolor, ink, and gouache on 140lb cold press.
Finished this up last night. Super pleased that I was able to get to play around with the colors I swapped with Allie! The teal is super vivid and makes nice with the yellow and that Azo green. But my new favorite friend is totally that Quin Rose (which I was warned about XD).
I warned you about Quin Rose!! This turned out great Amaya : D
Inktober day 13- Apple friend! Tried out the Zoisite paint I borrowed from niadraws, it is so super nice ugh…
We’ve gone deep into underpainting hell with this one! The black I mix out of my Perylene green and violet is enduring the extra washes better than I thought it would. I did a staining test with those two back a while, and they pretty readily gave up their color. Here they lose some of the depth, but I’m also counting on those dark shapes taking a big step back into a gigantic wash of blue coming up soon.
Either it’s going to look super cool, or it’s going to just mud out and be awful. Should be exciting!
Inktober day 10 - Vera Greentea, a master of the unexpected and creepy, and one of my favorite ladies to work with : D
I meant to post this before I left, but here’s more on the bonefish underpainting! I’m super excited to get back to working on this tonight if I don’t pass out - I didn’t get a whole lot of sleep over the past weekend/few days. It was crazy, but it was so fun! Still, very happy to be back at home and back to business.
