Watercolour work in progress by GaarasMeltdown Watercolour work in progress by GaarasMeltdown
EDIT// Holy crap guys, I didn't know you'd like my traditional work so much ;C;
Just.. Ughhh, thank you haha<3

______________________________________________

BET YOU GUYS DIDN'T KNOW I DID THINGS TRADITIONALLY HMM?

I actually do a LOT of traditional work, but I never find the time to take pictures of them (And they're all usually pretty big pieces. Or they get sold before I remember to show you guys)

But yeah, this is my current watercolour piece, lined in a simple sharpie. It is a $20 commission for a friend of mine over on FA.

( I still have to add the background and markings asdfghjkl; )
This canvas is going to have six soft blue lights situated behind it (They're battery operated and will be screwed in with a flat wooden box covering them) The canvas is very thin so it will give the whole picture a fairly pleasant, gentle glow.

If I remember to, I'll take a picture of the final image ;C;

Use a picture...? Do you mean a reference? No, I don't use references. It's all just memory and stuff.

And no, I haven't had the chance to finish this piece yet, I'm waiting on some blue lights to come in the mail.

And it might be a while, I still need to get ahold of some soft blue lights that take batteries, because the site I was planning on buying them from has discontinued that line.

This actually took me about an hour, sketch/lines/shading and all ;C;
It's pretty simple compared to the usual, this is just a bust/headshot.
