Warnings: Angst. Mentions of sex. Everyone pretty much goes bonkers.
With a small groan, you forced your eyes open. It was supposed to be your day off, meaning you could sleep as much as you wanted for as long as you wanted. Why was she calling you now?
“Yes, Friday?” you murmured. She always found a way to bother you, especially during nap time. Delta’s needed more rest than everyone else, but of course, nobody knew that but you. You hadn’t told anyone about your true status yet.
“Mr. Stark requests your presence in the common room.”
With a tired groan, you threw the covers from your body and sat up.
What could possibly be going on this time? Did Tony blow up another suit again? It took weeks to get the oil out of your nails, much less your skin. Did Peter run out of webs mid swing again? You loved the kid almost like a little brother, but the kid needed some kind of rockets in his shoes for safety. You made sure to scold Tony on that; he wasn’t exactly a responsible crime fighter. You understood now what Pepper went through.
You slipped on the nearest form of clothing you could find before making your way towards the common room.
The sounds of hushed whispering rung throughout your ears. Your eyebrows furrowed in confusion. Was Tony having guests over? Why didn’t Friday mention that to you? Looking down at your clothes, you felt a blush break out on your cheeks. You were nowhere near dressed for guests. It wasn’t anything near provocative, just an oversized sweater and leggings, but still. You didn’t like drawing attention to yourself and you strongly disliked strangers.
Entering the room, you spotted the entire Avengers assembly. Literally.
You recognized Thor, who stood taller than everyone else, speaking with Bruce Banner quietly. You spotted Vision and …were that Scarlett Witch? Jesus, she was even prettier in person. You may or may not have read her file religiously.
You saw Hawkeye standing next to the redheaded assassin herself, Black Widow. Immediately, you felt your instincts kick in slightly. She was a suitable alpha, no doubt. Her red hair made her pale skin seem almost vibrant and those eyes…god she was so perfect. With a subtle shake of your head, you pulled your mind out of the gutter. As nice as she was, you were still wary of the woman. She was extremely intimidating.
In the corner of the room, you spotted Falcon and Ant Man standing side by side. You could tell how nervous the two looked about the whole situation. You couldn’t blame them, from what you heard about the whole airport thing that happened in Germany, you’d be a bit nervous, too.
You smiled when you spotted Peter standing by himself, his hands in his tucked into his pockets casually. At least you knew him. Even though Peter was a newly legal Beta, he still remained one of your closest friends. He didn’t know about your whole…status problem yet, but he something told you he knew there was more to you than what you were telling him. But being the polite person he was, he decided not to push it, to your relief.
When Tony entered the room, everyone instantly got quiet. You had a feeling you’d be receiving some really bad news this evening.
“Alright, I’m sure you’re all wondering why I called you here,” he began, clapping his hands together. You could spot the subtle sweat beading across his forehead. Why was he so nervous? “I can assure you right now, I’m not dying!”
Everyone seemed to relax a little bit at the news. Jesus, he had a way of being the biggest drama kind on this earth.
As Tony continued, you felt someone’s eyes on you. Ignoring it, you kept your gaze on Tony.
“Why are we here, Tony?” Rhodey asked, crossing his arms over his chest. A cliché alpha mannerism. You snorted softly at the realization that your instincts hadn’t kicked in at the sight of him. Maybe he wasn’t as alpha as he thought he was. Alphas were so fragile underneath the whole macho exterior.
Again, you could feel someone’s eyes on you. And it was honestly irking the life out of you. You couldn’t possibly focus on Tony while whoever it was stared at you like that. With a causal turn of your head, you caught sight of Natasha glancing over at you. Her blue eyes were set on your body, trailing them up and down. Suddenly, you felt so small.
You felt the arousal slowly growing between your legs, making you blush. Before she could look back into your eyes, you looked away quickly. That wasn’t a very practical idea after all.
“We’re here because I’ve decided that I was a little bit hard on Rogers,” he admitted, avoiding everyone’s gaze. But when he looked up at everyone’s smirks, he sighed.
“Okay, maybe I was a bit dramatic about it.”
Someone let out a snort.
“What I’m trying to say is, I was wrong. Incredibly wrong about the entire situation. Rogers, although he can be a little shit sometimes, is a strong asset to this team. And without him, we’ve pretty much got nothing going for us.”
Everyone nodded in agreement, much to his dismay.
“Hey! I did pretty well those couple of ti- anyways,” he cleared his throat. “I’ve decided to try and make things right; for the sake of the team. I offered Cap a place back on the team.”
Everyone let out small approvals at the news. You even cracked a smile. This was so mature for Tony, you were so proud of him.
“He agreed to come back on one condition.” Everyone practically leaned in with anticipation. Peter even stood on the couch to get a better view.
“He’ll come back, but only if Barnes gets a place, too.”
You felt like one of those cartoon characters. Your jaw practically dropped straight to the floor. Peter instantly looked down at me with wide eyes. But Rhodey, though…he was not having it at all.
“Are you high?!” he shouted, clenching his fists in fury.
“I wish I was,” Tony said under his breath with a sigh. “No Rhodey, I’m just trying to fix things for once.”
“And by fixing, you mean letting the man who killed your parents live under your roof?”
That’s when shit hit the fan.
“Hey, Barnes was brainwashed!” Scott shouted. “He didn’t mean any of that!”
“Oh yeah? Well, why didn’t he just walk away?” Rhodey retorted. “He could’ve at any point. He’s a damn master assassin!”
You glanced over at Peter, feeling a bit fearful. He gave you a reassuring smile, patting your shoulder gently. You absolutely hated confrontation. Especially when it involved your work.
“Tony!” Rhodey exclaimed. “At least think about this for a couple days!”
“Yeah, about that,” Tony said, glancing at his wristwatch. “I kinda already agreed to it. They should be here any minute.”
Your eyes nearly flew out of your head. You weren’t too sure about this. You knew Steve was a trustworthy man, but this Bucky guy…you were a bit wary of this. The only thing you knew about him was that he murdered a lot of innocent people, including Tony’s parents. Tony told you the entire thing personally after he’d nearly drank himself to death one night.
“Mr. Stark,” Friday chimed again. You all instantly went quiet. “Mr. Rogers and Mr. Barnes have arrived.”
“Oh, cool,” he sighed. “Send them in, I guess.”
The elevator chimed mechanically, opening swiftly.
That’s when you felt it.
Your vision instantly blurred, creating kaleidoscope like patterns. You placed a hand on whoever was near you for support. Whoever the person was, they placed their hands on your shoulders, steadying you. The next thing you know, you’re on the ground surrounded by everyone. You feel hands cupping your face, forcing you to look up. Natasha stared back at you, her blue eyes widened with worry.
The heat between your legs was unlike anything else you’ve ever felt. It was almost unbearable. You felt a wave of arousal hit you at full force, preventing you from thinking straight.
Natasha leaned in far too close, inhaling deeply. Her eyes snapped open, her eyes completely dilated.
“Delta.” She whispered, licking her lips hungrily.
“Delta.” Peter repeated, his eyes dilating as well.
“Delta!” Wanda gasped, prowling closer to you with matching dilated eyes.
“Delta.” Sam followed behind her, his nostrils flaring.
You looked over at the elevator, past all the people slowly crowding around you.
Bucky’s eyes were completely dilated, his breaths coming out in short puffs. He was the one. He was the perfect mate and you wanted his knot and you wanted it now. You didn’t care if everyone watched; you needed him more than anything. You didn’t care who was in the way of your alpha.
“WAIT WHAT?” Tony practically squeaked, staring at you with wide eyes. “What do you guys mean delta? She’s not…oh no.” he inhaled, catching your scent of wild berries and pine trees. Of course you were a delta. Jesus, he was so stupid not to notice. You had no scent up until now.
Natasha dipped her nose into your neck, inhaling harshly. You let out a small whine, gently trying to push yourself away from her. It was no use. She was an alpha, far too strong for you.
Bucky let out a growl, snapping everyone’s eyes from you to him. The gears in his metal arm shifted threateningly as he clenched his fist harder. Your eyes instantly went to his, begging silently for him to take you away.
Before anyone was able to touch you, Tony scurried past everyone and snatched you away from Natasha. Well, he tried to.
Natasha grabbed ahold of your legs as tight as she could, planting her feet onto the ground to prevent him from leaving. “God damn it, Romanoff!” he spat. “Get your shit together before I make Fury fire you!”
In a flash, Thor scooped the redheaded woman up from the ground and threw her over his shoulder despite her angry shouts.
“Ah, I remember my first encounter with a delta!” he laughed, snatching a kicking and screaming Wanda up as well with his other arm.
Tony began dragging you away as fast as he could, trying to dodge the crazed people that darted towards you.
Peter had managed to grab onto your arm, only to be snatched up by Clint and thrown into one of the coat closets. “Jesus,” Clint sighed, placing a chair in front of the door. “You guys are so embarrassing.”
You caught a glimpse of Bruce running out of the building, his body shifting inhumanly large. Oh god, he was hulking out. Vision and Sam were practically rolling on the floor as the android gathered the man into a headlock. “Let me go, you fucker!” Sam spat, wiggling in his grasp.
Suddenly, you felt a cold, metal arm grab onto your ankle, tearing you away from Tony’s grasp. You cried out with glee at the sight of Bucky practically dragging you through the hall, ignoring Tony’s shouts from afar. You jumped into his arms, wrapping your legs around his waist as he carried you away. Bucky raced down the hallway, zooming through the halls for any empty rooms. He didn’t care if it was a janitor closet, as long as he could get his knot inside you and fast.
You dipped your head into his neck, pressing small kisses along the warm flesh. He let out a growl, kneading the flesh of your behind. You let out a small squeak at his actions. Bucky smelled like heaven. His scent was a mixture of cinnamon and the ocean, your favorite two things combined into the perfect alpha. You tangled your fingers through his hair, breathing in his scent as if it were oxygen.
“Rogers!” Tony’s voice echoed from down the hall. “Get your friend before he impregnates my successor!”
Suddenly, you and Bucky were on the ground. Steve’s shield rattled against the ground beside the two of you. Bucky let out a string of curses as he stood. Before he could get to you, he was tackled to the ground by Steve. The two men wrestled on the ground, throwing punch after punch.
Not knowing what else to do, you crawled towards the men and pounced onto Steve’s back.
“What the hell? Get off Y/N!” he shouted, stumbling backwards. Before Bucky could get to his feet once again, you were snatched from Steve’s back and hauled away from him.
“What the hell is wrong with you two? You’re like rabid bunnies on Viagra!” Tony exclaimed, dragging you away with all his might.
You cried out as you got farther and farther away from Bucky. Your heat slowly became more and more intense the farther you were apart. You watched helplessly as Steve planted his shield on his friend’s back and sat on it, preventing him from following this time.
You reached out and grabbed onto one of the door handles and tried to pull yourself away from Tony, only to have him swat your hands away. Turning the corner, the last thing you saw was Bucky lying helplessly beneath Steve.
Tony practically threw you into the first bedroom he found.
Unfortunately, you completely missed the bed and landed on the floor with a loud thud. You picked yourself up and cradled your bruised arm, snarling at Tony. The older man let out a sigh of relief, plopping down onto the bed. It was a spare bedroom, but it would do for now. He just needed to rest a bit. He really did need to get back in shape soon. Gosh, Pepper would be cackling at him right now.
“You are such a handful, you know that?” he sighed, watching you intently.
You glared up at him, your eyes still dilated completely black. You were still in heat. Great.
Tony let out a small chuckle, staring out the small window. You let out a small growl.
“You know, I remember these days when I was a kid.” He recalled, watching the birds fly past the building. Your eyes widened. What was he talking about?
“You see,” he said softly. “My mom was a delta, too.”
Hello! Just dropping by to say that I check your blog religiously and worship you, the actual Scenario Writing Goddess of every century ever. I love your characterizations! It's like, they're not so obvious sometimes, they don't fall into the exaggerated stereotypes that certain idols have attached to them and it's so refreshing! Thank you for sharing all your lovely writing with us all! I was hoping you'd write a small wonho au if you have the time or inspiration? Thank you! 💕
that’s,,,,,such a nice compliment im ????? floored,,,,,thank you for liking my writing so much, it means the world to me~~
loves doing full color, vibrant tattoos,,,,,especially of animals
always pays great attention to detail and loves putting his own style into his drawings which make him really popular among younger people who are looking for something unique
and it’s kinda cute because his style is so so SO much more different from the kind of tattoos he has on his body
which is mostly black and grey quotes and flowers. some traditional korean elements incorporated in his sleeve
has got the intimidating, muscular tattooed guy look if he’s frowning
but the minute he smiles it’s like,,,,,sunshine???? pure angelic??? sunshine????
and he’s always so sweet and gentle with people who haven’t gotten tattooed before,,,,,he’s always got water ready and asks if they need breaks and tries to distract them with nice words
people don’t expect it, but he gets super embarrassed when people compliment his art he’s like,,,,,,i wish i could be better!!!!! and he hides his face,,,,,,this actual CUTIE
you’re actually an apprentice under another artist there and while your artist is kind of demanding and stern
and very very,,,,,,,,not rude but,,,,,,straightforward with his criticism
wonho is always there to motivate and encourage you about your own art
and he’s always staying with you even after everyone’s gone to go over your portfolio and to clean up your teacher’s station
and since the shop closes super late, around one am every weekday, wonho always offers to drive you home
and it’s just,,,,,something you two do. he’s being the considerate friend
but one night as you’re making way to wonho’s car you run into a friend of his and the friend is like “where are you going with this cute person wonho?” and wonho is like “im driving them home”
and the friend winks and is like “you’re totally his type, i can see why you’re dating”
and you and wonho look at each other and wonho’s ears go supER red and he’s like “i-uh we’re no-”
and the friend is like “sure,,,,,,who else drives someone home if not a boyfriend? anyway, there’s another party across town i need to go to, don’t have TOO much fun tonight love bird~”
and with that they’re gone and you and wonho are on the sidewalk, two blushing messes
can’t even look at each other again until you turn and see his profile under the street light and ,,,,,,,, there’s no denying it,,,,,, he’s handsome
and the way he takes care of you,,,,the way his laugh brightens up anyone in the shop,,,,,,,,,,it’s,,,,,hard to not fall for
and wonho is like “im,,,,,,sorry about my friends they always-”
and you’re like “it’s ok,,,,but um,,,,,,”
and you shyly put out your hand and wonho looks at it before biting back his lip and taking it in his own
and silently you two walk to his car, holding hands like a couple for the first time
and it feels so right,,,,,like something that should have happened long ago,,,,,,
in the morning you and wonho arrive to work together and kihyun is like “they finally did it, the finally started dating” and the whole shop goes into cheers
until your artist is like love is great but GET OVER HERE AND DO YOUR JOB
and you’re like yikes, but lean up to give wonho a kiss before hurrying over (A kiss wonho thinks about the whole time he’s working and sneaking peeks over at you)
There are few places that feel as raw and wild as the west coast of Vancouver Island. Rocked by storms and rainy grey weather, the rugged beach-lined coast, mountains, and old growth forests always recall a place almost beyond time. Even a quick action-packed trip leaves me feeling at once rested and brimming with excitement.
Last week Samsung invited us out for their west coast #UnboxYourMoment / Galaxy S8 event. I met up with a bunch of friends, caught a tiny bumpy lurching plane over the mountains to Tofino, hopped on a whale watching tour, got seasick, walked through the dripping rainforest, fell asleep to the sound of the ceaseless crashing sea, and spent the whole day playing with Samsung’s exciting new flagship phone. Fun! It was really neat to see the world through its vibrant edge-to-edge display.
It’s always so nice to be back on the Island, even for just a for a little while, and it was especially nice to be there testing out great gear. Thanks for inviting us!

has a bit of a crush on one of the regulars (who he might have come out to,
Notes: Written for the Aro/Ace Wolves Mini Bang! (On AO3)
I forgot to add that this fic now has some lovely art! Check it out!
Derek looks up from his calculus textbook when he hears the
bell jingle, and he has to suppress a smile. This guy’s a regular. He usually
comes in every couple of weeks, awkward and overly-enthusiastic. He gets in to
animated conversations with other patrons, flails a lot, and almost always
manages to knock something off a shelf.
Eyeshadow: BH colors. I bought this cheap ass feild of colors, cause you never know what you need for cosplay. But I always buy BLACK and WHITE in larger, singular pots. The .99$ wet n wild ones.
Eyeliner: Fabuliner. I favor FELT Tip eyeliners. But they dry out fast, no matter how fancy. So I always buy a bulk of 4-5 cheap ass ones. They’re all the same honestly, just nice to have a ton on hand. They dont last long so its a waste to buy some 24 dollar one.
Lipstick: Covergirl is my favorite cause they have every fucking shade under the sun. I really love the Katy Perry matte ones! The color is nice and vibrant without being too sticky or cheap. And If its too much, I lay it one and dab some off.
Mascara: L’Oreal Manga. I BOUGHT THIS AS A FUCKING JOKE 4 YEARS AGO CAUSE ITS LITTERALLY ANIME MASCARA. BUT ITS AMAZING 20/10 THIS SHIT GETS YOUR LASHES SO THICK AND HIGH AND I LOVE IT
Here is my baby boy Jumin to continue my little Borrow series. I don’t know why, but I instantly felt drawn to this guy when I started playing this God forsaken game and he’s remained my favourite even after playing Seven and Yoosung’s routes.
on earth possessed you to come here? To think this was a good idea?” I
laugh, awkwardly scratching my elbow as I follow my friend inside this dodgy
strip club. We’re looking at possible to-do’s for another friend of ours her
bachelorette party, but as far as I’m concerned we haven’t gotten anywhere at

the best thing about the whole day.” Sheila wiggles her eyebrows in my
direction as she walks further into the club.

uncomfortable.” I groan, following behind her as I try to avert my gaze
from half naked ladies serving drinks. “As if you don’t enjoy the finesse
of a toned male figure.” She scolds me. All I can do is shrug my shoulders
as I slide into the bar stool beside her. “Of course, but if I’m willing
to pay to see one is a whole different ordeal.”
I see her
lips purse and I can’t help but grin. I didn’t mind going to a strip club but I
know Sheila would be blowing this way out of proportion. “Y/n, do me a
favour and give it a chance before you completely blow this off, alright?”
She turns to me and grasps my outstretched hand, squeezing it as she grants me
with her puppy dog eyes.
because you asked so nicely.” I laugh, clapping my hands together before
beckoning a waiter over. “Rum coke. Double. Thank you.” I immediately
mumble as she approaches us, making sure to make eye contact instead of staring
at her voluptuous bosom.
I see him
right away. Slight darker skin tone, carbon black messy hair and an arrogant
yet vibrant smile uncovering his pearly white teeth. He’s wearing nothing else
than a pair of boxers, and I can’t help but imagine him alongside Channing
Tatum in Magic Mike. He would fit right in - and I would’ve watched the shit
out of that movie.

size - which is usually quite big already, might I add - as she gives the
mystery male a very thorough once over.

evening?” The male speaks as his eyes twinkle underneath the dim lighting,
leaning against the freshly polished stage in front of us.
what you have to offer around here.” Sheila speaks without a hiccup,
making the blush rise on my cheeks. “Our friend is getting married and
we’re planning the bachelorette.” She adds, smirking before she throws me
a look, showing the male I am also involved in her shenanigans.
guess I’ll have to show you what we have to offer then. Calum Hood, lead dancer,
if I can put it like that.” He chuckles and I think it’s my new favourite
sound. If this were a movie, my eyes would be twinkling underneath the dim
lighting of this rather filthy strip club, and he would be smirking down at me.
Well, the last part was true.

eyes, “We do offer an arrangement for bridal parties. It’s a private room, a
few dancers if I’m not mistaken. Isn’t that expensive either.”
you think? Sounds like something Sophia would be happy with.” Sheila turns to
me, seeming unfazed by what was in front of us.
sure she’ll be happy with that? I mean…” I trail off, frowning and staring off
into the distance. I hear Calum scoff and I glance at him through the corner of

tune starts playing and I momentarily jump in my seat when a harsh white

appears on stage and while he walks to the centre, he sways his hips to the
beat of the music. It’s mesmerizing to watch how he immediately takes over the
stage, owns it and seems to have fun
up there. He is in his comfort zone and that makes watching him all the more
mesmerized by his movements. It’s sensual, almost freeing and a real pleasure
for the eye. Now that I give it a second thought, I think this would be even
better if he was wearing more clothing so he could take it off. Just the
thought of him doing said clothing removal during the bachelorette party gets
my cheeks all tainted pink and a weird, unnerving feeling to erupt in my

brightly towards us. I bite my inner cheek as I try to suppress the grin that’s
growing onto my features, before I speak.

as Calum lets out a loud laugh. “Then I guess you’ll see us again.” Sheila
smiles as her fingers curl around my arm, hoisting me up to my feet. “But for
now, we have to leave. We still have a lot of things to figure out, right Y/n?” Sheila gives me a pointed look,
smirk half hidden by the bad lighting. I feel the blush creep onto my cheeks as
I glance from Calum to my mate. “Uh, yeah, yeah you’re right.”
We bid our
goodbyes and I can’t help but glance back once more over my shoulder, seeing
Calum still staring at our retreating figures. The sun light is harsh on my
skin and I shield my eyes, trying to figure out where we were again.

‘Right Where We Are’
The tweets of birds could be heard as a fainted sound by his ears. Gaining his conscience, he could hear the subdued voices more clearly. He attempted to open his heavy eyelids, inhaling, he finally managed to do so. His vision was still blurring and it took a few seconds for him to adjust his perception. The first thing he saw was his wife’s pink hair.
A smile crossed his lips as he realized he hadn’t woken up in a dark cave or a life-less cottage he’d normally wake up in. He had opened his eyes to see the place he was very familiar with. The matress, the sheets, the ceiling, the walls; they were all well-known by him.
He was finally home.
His eyes were focussed on the woman laying next to him. He noticed the slight changes in her form. Her hair were shorter than he had remembered them to be, her shoulders were a little broader, her waist slimmer. She was petite- yet curvy, as always.
The sweet @silvernightsky requested a coloring tutorial on this gifset of Jace Herondale and Alec Lightwood in Shadowhunters. There are plenty of ways to achieve this effect, but today we’re trying to keep it simple ✌🏻✨
So today i’m going to show you how to go from this:
Here’s what you’ll need! ● Photoshop (I’m using Photoshop CS6) ● Basic knowledge on making gifs ● Please like/reblog if this post helped you in any way! ● If anything is unclear, don’t hesitate to ask ● Click ‘read more’ to view this tutorial
You’ve just gotten a job as one of the makeup artists on the set of Supernatural. Nervous on the first day, you become completely awkward, winning the affection of the divorced Jensen Ackles. You try to fight your desire for him, but he thwarts you at every turn. Will you be able you separate work and play, or will you let Jensen win?
Waking up the next morning, you could hear the sounds of the landscape company outside, already hard at work in your backyard. As you lay there, you were glad, happy that your backyard would soon be ready to enjoy. But then you remembered the events of yesterday, and you could feel the panic start to set in. You had no idea if Brad would be stupid enough to show up again, and the thought that he might be out there, while you laid in bed with Jensen was enough to have you sitting straight up in bed.
“Wha…what is it?” Jensen asked, waking up instantly. Rubbing the sleep from his eyes, he glanced at you, watching as you climbed out of bed. Wrapping your arms around your waist, you headed straight for the bathroom. Leaning over the sink, you could see just how frazzled you felt. Your hair was a bird’s nest from sleeping, and you had the start of dark circles underneath your eyes. But it was the pale skin and the wide pupils that showed how upset you were.
pphew! sorry for the late reply to these >.< i figured id just reply to all these in one post with some pics. Below are the watercolors i use and the the gold paints (keep in mind those pics i posted were like first attempts @_@ im still getting used to these…)
The water colors are Mjello Mission Gold Watercolors in the 34 tube set and the gold palette are the FineTec Artist Mica Watercolors in the Pearl set.
Now I’ll state first– both these sets are kinda pricey. The FineTec palette (about $27) is so worth it though because it comes in different golds and one tube of gold gouache is usually like $9 each or more depending on the amount of mica, so def worth the price and variety.
Below: from lightest to darkest on ivory tinted paper [Silver, Moon Gold, Gold Pearl, Arabic Gold, Tibet Gold, & Inca Gold] they look SUPER outstanding on black paper as well!
my fav is the richest one, the Inca Gold.
They are super nice, but if you plan on getting them, they are super HARD palettes! It’ll take a lot of scrubbing to get them activated and to have that nice gouache-like thickness, so if you don’t want to ruin your nice brushes, I def recommend getting some Ox Gall. Adding a drop or two of this will get them activated in no time, and with a nice opaque thickness. (the brand I have below they dont sell anymore, but other brands still make it)
As for the water colors, ehhh i feel weird cuz those vegetas were like my first attempts with this brand. Ive always used the Sakura Koi 24 color set palette because theyre super nice and super cheap (like $20) and Ive had them for years. I only got these because I wanted higher-grade watercolors in tubes. But they are very expensive, but for good reasons: they have a lot of pigment, which makes them so vibrant and bright and theyre designed to be very close to natural colors, not to mention theyre so SMOOTH when painting and they’ll probs last me forEVER because you get so much color with very little water.
(opera is best color IMHO) here’s a color chart I made (that took FOREVER btw) to give you an idea how beautiful they are and how many nice colors they make
so yea! those are the paints I used for those particular pics. Course if you would like a nice, cheap watercolor recommendation that works pretty well, Sakura Koi’s are a fantastic substitute. …..SORRY IF THIS WAS LONG i just akdfhalkfhd i like talking about traditional media..lol. hope this was at least a little informative >.< if anyone has questions or wants some recommendations (while also saving some money) feel free to ask! I’ll help in any way i can with what i know, cuz despite posting mostly digital art, I am a traditional art supply FANATIC.
