Purple and flowers by Julia-Riley

Now I notice she has a bit of a mean look ^^;

This was kind of an experiment, I tried using normal drawing/sketching/painting paper, like the universal one you use in school because it's slightly more thick and due to the heavy use of water the sketching paper began to deform. Turns out the universal paper is too absorbent for the Kuretake markers. You literally can't blend the colors with water or between themselves and it all starts to look plain, like big chunks of color. So it was back to the sketching paper :D

Animated Color Bullets Materials used:
  • Cretacolor Fine Art Graphite F pencil
  • Rotring 0.5 mechanical pencil
  • Kuretake ZIG Art & Graphic Twin markers
  • Kuretake ZIG Water Colour System H20 brush, medium tip
  • Windsor & Newton white calligraphy ink

Started using Kuretake markers, kind of a cheapper replacement of the Copic markers, although I am not sure Copics can be mixed with water to obtain lighter shades. Correct me if I'm wrong about this, I just never saw anyone use a brush and water with them. Anyway, I'm proud of this one but in the same time I am really disappointed that the colors don't look like in the original painting. Either my scanner is messed up or I need to change some settings... or just post photos of my traditional works instead Sweating a little...

I really couldn't think of any other title for this. I'm also not very pleased with how it turned out but I guess I can keep it here to "fill up" my gallery.

  • Rotring 0.5 mechanical pencil
  • Cretacolor Monolith 2B, 4B and 6B graphite

  • Windsor and Newton white calligraphy ink
  • Post-processing in Photoshop CS6

Heart Border [Pink] by RevPixy

Hello, everyone!
Here is the first part of September Favorites. And, again, had a rough time picking them up because every day I find so many beautiful artworks and I don't want to make these posts too long. Also, a lot of Featured Artists this time and more to come. For the next post I will try to make it more category based and have some variation.

I will re-upload some of my drawings and new ones in the following days. I wanted to actually have something to post here, rather than bring back dusty old works that nobody bothers with (not that the new ones would be more impressing ^^;)

But in the meantime, enjoy these lovely deviations from our talented artists! Tiny Panda Icon [FREE] by socksyy

I wanted to start out with a literature piece because it has been quite a tough period these last couple of weeks and reading it gave me a bit of courage. I hope it will inspire and help others out there too.
