Livin' Among Roses

It felt really nice putting my new set of watercolors to use! I recently bought a lot of Cotman colors.The colors are a lot less vibrant than the paints I'm used to working with (mainly, Dr Martins liquid watercolor), but I like the pastel look for what it is. Also... I like the expression in the original drawing better. Don't you hate it when that happens?

Happy Girl!

Yay! I just realized how super easy it is to add color to a grey-toned drawing! I feel like a slow caterpillar for not seeing it sooner, but... rejoicing has commenced! This only took about two hours. It's not often I post something with such little labor to it, but I'm too happy to hide my doodling today! I drew and inked this by hand and then added my photoshop magic sparkle powers. It sure was fun!

Cutie Yunie

Phew! This piece has been in the works for too long! I spent a whole lot of time drawing a neat background for it, but I decided not to use it because I wasn't comfortable coloring it... but that's ok! I like her as a cut-out. I think I'll do some more characters like this while studying up on my color theory and how to integrate characters with backgrounds! *Determined nod* And it will be quicker, that's for sure! There are too many other things I want to do to let myself get stuck! =D And hooray for cuteness! It makes me feel good. <3
