Congratulations again on such a beautiful girl! I adore the traditional work and she really stands out!! I love the way you handled her feathers and I am so thrilled she came home to you. The care and love you've put into her just makes me so happy and proud<33
Aww, thank you very much! You did amazing job with designing the whole collection so I had to try my best to make justice for the beautiful design. This particular one was my favorite of the bunch and I am so happy I won her!
There will be many more pictures of her in the future - it would be shame to let this lovely thing just collect dust.
She's just beautiful in your style Xunau did a fabulous job with that design! Love seeing more pegasi like this running around. You can never have too many peacock horses! And the way you nail digital colors with traditional work is fantastic.
I fell in love with the design the moment I saw it first time; *Xunau66 really did beautiful job. I was utterly lucky to win the design from a raffle. Hooray for all kind of birdie-horses!
Getting colors to go with the original ones required some mixing and matching and swearing to the markers that wanted to retire in the middle of the coloring process. But that's the charm of the traditional art and one reason why I love it.
I have heard of salting with watercolors! I just have no idea how to do it. lol. I haven't really done anything with watercolors anyways.
That's interesting. I haven't really been able to get into markers. I got some really nice Prismacolor markers, but because they're expensive I don't have the range of colors so I don't use them often enough. That technique though would explain why I thought colored pencils but couldn't be sure that's actually what you used. XD
Making patterns with watercolors and salt is easy: just drop some salt (the same kind of table salt you use on food) on painted watercolor while it is still wet and let the paint dry. While drying salt absorbs water and creates crystal like patterns. Then just carefully remove extra salt from the paper. Definitely worth of trying!
My problem with markers is that I cannot shade with them. So then I just use them for solid base and add details with colored pencils that are easier to handle than markers.
Both those techniques sound really awesome! I really like ink. I took a two year fundamentals of art program, and the inking was my favorite! I just really fell in love with it. I also love color theory as well, but I'm not that great with paint.
I haven't tried ink but I would love to try! Maybe I have to invest on few colors... Do you have any favorite brand or type of ink you'd recommend so that I know what I should look for when shopping new colors?
So far I just use black ink. I don't have and have never used any colored ink unfortunately. I have Speedball Super Black India Ink that I got with my art program. (They just sent me a little thing of it: www.amazon.com/Speedball-2-Oun… It's super nice and works well with washes as well. The rest of the inking I do is with pens, primarily Prismacolor line "markers" (www.amazon.com/Sanford-Prismac… or my one nib that also came with the program. My icon was made using a combination of both makrers and ink with brush. fav.me/d5ctgie I think the major thing to look out for with inks is if you want waterproof or non waterproof (aka water soluble). I believe non waterproof will bleed. bcn2013.urbansketchers.org/201… www.pendemonium.com/ink_facts.…
Thanks a lot for the useful links! (Few of them didn't work directly but I managed to track them from the address). Inks would give a bit similar transparent look like watercolors but they might be more handy because you could apply them with a pen... I definitely need to do more research and try those out! Thanks again!
Juu, takajaloista tuli vähän hassut. Lineartissa toi vasen takajalka näytti kummalliselta, mutta nyt väritettynä oikea onkin omituinen. Varmaan myös noi raidat vääristää asentoa, oisin voinut piirtää ne vähän eri kulmaan.
I love how you've drawn and captured the Phoenix feeling... those feathers! Your shading on her is to die for. I really can't get enough of your art! She is so beautiful. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing more of stunning beauty.
