Verdant Woods by Agaave Verdant Woods by Agaave
Sorry about deviation spam but I got a crazy obsession that I had to also draw the horse I am trying to win in a story auction... (my entry and more info about the auction can be found here). I thought that if I don't win, I am probably never ever going to draw that particular pony so I had to draw him quickly so that I don't miss my change of drawing him. :giggle:
Aaand I don't draw things quickly so I have been sitting still the whole evening and drawing (ok, not the whole evening: I got up now and then to dry watercolors with my hairdryer…) and now my butt hurts. Sorry if this was too much information for you.

Well, if I win I can draw him as much as I want and if don't win, then the lucky one who wins can use this picture towards Veratis points. :meow:

Tools: watercolors, markers, colored pencils, gel pen.

Did you just color the horse with colored pencils in this one? Or was it watercolor too? The texture and shading / color tones are AMAZING in this one!

Thank you! :aww:
I have colored with markers underneath the colored pencils on the horse.
Watercolors have been used to paint the background. ^^

Okay, sweet. So how do you paint the backgrounds around your lines? I'm curious, cuz your painting is so flawless!! :heart:

There are no special tricks, I just paint very carefully around the character. I use bigger brush further and as I get closer I change to smaller brush.
If I mess and paint inside the lines that can be fixed by quickly cleaning the extra paint with water and paper towel.
I paint the background first and the character afterwards so there is still a chance to hide mistakes while coloring character if previous tip didn't work. :D

I also wish to get better in digital art but at the moment my poor drawing tablet is just collecting dust...
Hopefully inspiration to improve those skills will hit me sometimes but if not, I am glad to keep doing traditional works and trying to learn more of it. ;P

Ya I'm the same way! I'm getting into these Digital Art magazines that come with tutorial disks in each issue. They're expensive but so worth it. My fave is Imagine FX. Try it out sometime. :D

Minäkin tykästyin tosi paljon noihin valkoisiin merkkeihin ja harmaan-ruskeaan väritykseen; harmi etten voittanut tätä designiä itselleni...
Mutta ehdinpäs piirtää sen yhden kerran!

Eihän mua mikään oikeasti estä tekemästä hahmoa itselle, mutta ei se ois sama asia, koska toi Cavitto-homma on vähän niin kuin "peli", jossa hahmoa voi mm. halutessaan kehittää tiettyjen sääntöjen mukaan ansaitsemalla pisteitä. Ja onhan se aina kiva voittaa jotain. :D
Mutta onneks voi tehdä fan arttia, ei oo pakko saada kaikkea itselle. :w00t:

Feel free to deviation spam my message center all you want. Your art is worth it!! This is no exception. I love how glossy the mane, tail, and tufts of fur around his feet look. And I love how the hair looks like its being whipped around by the wind. Love this! :love:
