:O - The art of Thornwolf — LiveJournal
Holy Hopping Hornytoads Batman, I got Editor's Pick on Epilogue.Net with "The King's Mercy" ! What's really ironic about that is half my images I submit get rejected XD



This is the best year ever so far =)

Current Mood: ecstatic ecstatic

Man. o_o I would love to do water color/colored pencil like that. How do you do it? Bristol/illustration board + water color + colored pencil = awesome?

... Any tips? :D

well, firstly i tape down the smooth bristol (smooth..not vellum) so it doesnt buckle so much, then i just keep doing light watercolor washes over and over and over again. let it dry, do a new coat, let it dry, do a new coat. I put the watercolor where my shadows are going ot be and leave it lighter where my highlights will be. Then I start doing the same with the colored pencils, do a base with one color and map out my light sources, then darken and darken using the actual colors of the figure, then i add my shadows later once i have things mapped out. working light to dark is always key.

Oooh, well done. Now that IS a gallery to be proud of, too! ^_^

How large is The King's Mercy? Is it on Bristol board or some such? It's absolutely gorgeous, and I do hope you do more art like it. *nodnods*
