a Howl’s Moving Castle piece I did in 2010. i took a lot of photos of this while in the process of painting it and had these posted on my (now abandoned) livejournal, thought i’d revive them and make them into gifs. click on each photo for description and steps.
media used: watercolor, Copic markers, ballpoint pens, chalk pastel dust, and white ink. paper: vellum bristol. || you can purchase a print of this piece here at my Society6 shop!
one millionth rescan of an old work. this is ballpoint pen and light watercolor wash. character is an OC of mine, a cranefly fairy (Tipulidae fairy i had called her)… thing. need to work on a backstory for her sometime
now that i’m a bit better at making gifs i thought i’d take these ancient progress shots i posted on livejournal years ago and turn them into step-by-step animation thingies. since i don’t use LJ anymore i wanted to have these old WIPs saved on my blog. i’ll be queueing a couple more gif posts like this :o
this is a copic marker + watercolor legend of zelda piece i did in 2008. kinda hard to believe i took these photos 6 years ago, some of the copics seen here still have ink left in them after all this time
i had never taken any photos of these while in the process of painting them, and i’m a bit sad about that because these turned out to be some of my pieces that i’m most proud of! (´,_ゝ｀) i guess this post is more or less intended to fill that void! there’s just something really nice about taking wip shots of real media artworks and seeing how they’ve evolved from pencil sketches to fully painted pieces, it’s my weakness.
levi hatechuu. painted with coffee and gouache on bristol
it was a good choice for me to use a brown-ish palette since this guy is a fan of poop jokes n shit. he is not out of his element, surrounded by a mass of brown. (that is nasty, but see, i made a poop joke there, i bet levi would like it)
