Feanarth by Shinerai Feanarth by Shinerai
So I've been working on this for a while xD; This is for *Psydrache of her boyfriend's character, Feanarth, in return for a dream catcher she made for me. c: In real life, the yellow isn't quite that saturated and it's a little more contrasty. I won't say the irl looks better than the digital since they're both really pretty in their own way XD;

Anyhow, took me several days since I'm not used to traditional media. The paper is some sort of thick cardstock. Basically we get our truck shipment at work that comes in cardboard boxes and this sheet of paper is found in the box with sandwich bags. So i took it. I suggest you never watercolor on this type of paper since it was a huge pain in the ass. It would get SO DARK with being wet and I'd have to wait for it to dry so I could see what it even looked like.

Anyway, this is Crayola brand watercolors and Reeve's gouache on some mystery subway paper. The outline is in gel pen and is yellow in real life, not white.

guess that's all I have to say~

xD I think it's a lot easier if you mix them with something you're already comfortable with. I was pretty confident in my gouache skills, so most of what you actually SEE here is gouache while the watercolors are underneath c:

Ahhh I see, very nice, I'm learning how to use acrylics 8D I need to try mizing medias sometimes, I see some traditional artists do some pretty freaky stuff with a bunch of mediums, that it really has this essence that digital art's got nothin' on.

have you ever tried to paint on a feather?

I kinda made myself a blending technique to make things easier though xD(on a humid surface, apply the paint that will be blended, and use a rough-ish cotton shirt to blend as you would pencil shading with a tissue), while I sometimes apply what I know with pencil, but with a brush, it's weird!! But yeah, they both have their own effects, and if I just blended it all they'd call it cheating =p (reminds me, I haven't yet uploaded my new painting T_T)

Christ no! Though I think it'd be awesome and difficult @u@

Oh hey that does sound like it works! would you mind if I tried it out myself?

you know, it kinda IS hard. I've only done it twice and it was definitely. . . interesting! I have a lot of cool feathers though D; so i do plan to paint on them at some point

Knock yourself out :3

Well, having an odd canvas makes the work that much better, I need to try it myself :3 (though I've no idea where I'd get the feathers other than robbing the local zoo xD)

Is lovely traditional work, actually like this much more then when you work with markers. The dragon looks much more alive and the details that you have done. It's look like a lizard skin.

I can't believe this is watercolor. Geesh, Shin, is there any medium you don't excel at. This is completely beautiful. I love the textures and that beautiful pose. You really are amazing, you know that. Just beautiful work once again.
I would love to see you work with watercolor on webcam or something, babe. Really top notch.

I was going through my messages, and actually originally though this was a Neondragon pic (I watch her too.) Your style's actually very different. Woops. XD

But yeah, it's amazing. Love the details, colors, and the pretty pretty background. ;p
