- The closest I could find on Amazon to the watercolour set I use is the Sakura brand of Koi Assorted WaterColours Field Set.
- Just use any old toothbrush. I used to use the ones that my dentist would give me after a visit, just because those were kind of cheap and I wouldn’t actually use them anyways.
- I use acrylic for flicking and highlights because watercolour-whites tend to fade when they dry.
- Also, remember to keep your hands clean, because nothing’s worse than smudging graphite into your watercolours and then unable to get it out.
- Try to avoid black and white when possible. They tend to dull the colours and it loses that watercolouring lustre.
Since I started watercolouring again for my daily sketches, I’ve gotten a lot of asks/dA notes on if I could give a tutorial on watercolouring and also more specific questions that overlapped each other, so I decided to do a semi guide/tips/answering thing.
I actually started watercolouring before I went into digital medium, so I have a bit of personal experience, but I am essentially self-taught when it comes to watercolouring since there weren’t a lot of watercolour tutorials online back then to begin with, so I cannot promise that these are the absolute correct way of doing things.
Hope it helps anyways :)
Maybe I should take figure drawing next semester. Drawing people is so discouraging because it takes forever to get the proportions right before I can even think of continuing on to the details T.T
I spent maybe 2-2.5 hours on this.
Any advice? Tutorials, videos, other stuff that can help, etc? (I know the hands are VERY rough lol. Trying to get the torso down first…) I think the torso in general needs to be widened. Her left arm also looks a bit odd. Meh….Oh her boob needs to be moved a bit more.
Idk if this counts as a peeve more of an art-astronomy pet peeve
but when people draw the cresent moon and where the dark, shaddowed part of the moon is they put in stars
like studdenly that part of the moon is invisible instead of just being in the shadow
wait no peOPLE ACTUALLY DO THIS???
really stupid question though but like, aren’t there stars in front of the moon??? like??? space isn’t two dimensional so someone putting a couple stars in front of the shadow wouldn’t necessarily be wrong?? because aren’t there stars all around in space and?????? im just going to be confused forever frick uvu;
hun if there was a star infront of the moon we’d be fucking dead

“Digital art isn’t real art. You have no real talent and you’re lazy. It’s not like painting or using traditional media. You didn’t work a sweat. The program makes it for you!”
Hahaha….haha. *Although, I’m sure some people don’t actually reach 150 layers. That’s just me aahaha. /insecure /back ups of back ups of back ups
