Oh, wow! That's so amazing! That really looked EXACTLY like David Tennent. I'm in awe.
Only your second attempt at watercolor?! Could have easily fooled me! I love how you went and accented it with the white pen; the sharp, scratchiness of the pen creates a nice contrast to the smoothness and fluidity of the watercolors.
i used ink, but it was to strong/permanent for my taste. but i'm still using it to create textures i work with in my digital stuff. regarding the other: alas no, i'm more the oil colour type when it comes to traditional painting.
whee, thank you kindly. the new forum (gallifrey base) is kinda anonymous, people just post their stuff and wait for the praise to come in. i don't like it very much there - so far. maybe that will change once the community spirit takes off.
the old one was busy, too. i rarely stepped outside the fanart section. but the spirit between users there isn't what it was over at the old forum. maybe it's because many of the old warriors are missing. they found their new home over at braxiatel.com. it's cozy, but too calm for me. 3-5 posts a day in a forum of over 200 members isn't much.
