Flying Fish II. A present for a friend.
First proper sketch in a while…
Thinking about colors and background already. Should take my time with this one.
Hey guys. I present you my newest (quick) drawing.
I was browsing through my drawings to put order into the mess on my computer and discovered some old characters of mine. I couldn’t stop myself from having a try, remaking them. And voilà!
Considering there are almost 9 years between those drawings, I haven’t really made great progress. Maybe I should focus on drawing a little more…
Above you find some steps of the newer work
(I had no reference for the poses, so it might look a little bit weird)
I made the sketch back in November, but never dared to color it. I knew I wanted to do it with watercolors, but I also knew I hadn’t a lot of practice. I wanted to do it the same way like back in 2012, when I painted my first picture with watercolors (-this-). Well… I can’t say I’m unhappy with the result, but also not completely satisfied either.
I really liked the coloration in the beginning, but I kinda screwed it up with the background I think x)
I put a lot of effort in this picture though, and can say, that I kinda learned sth about watercolors. In the end I allowed myself to enhance the magic part a little bit with Photoshop… it just wouldn’t look good to me >__<
However, I hope some of you like it.
The watercolors I used, by the way, are mainly some very cheap ones from the supermarket I got about 10 years ago from my mum. I mixed them up with some Schmincke Watercolors I got for Christmas :)
Size is A4 (the tiny face was a pain in the ass with all the details!)
Yeah, Probably a lot of you (girls) know him already.
I’ve only discovered the art of Kai (also known as khaoskai) recently. It’s not only the Visual Kei/Punk style that fascinates me as a former Visual Kei Fangirly, but mostly also the watercolor technique. It’s so precise and strong in colors it makes me go from admiration to jealousy back to admiration and motivation to try harder myself.
Take a look, enjoy, support:
