Considering the semi-disaster that was the masking fluid pen here (WHYYYY!) this one finished alright. I might go ahead and say this Aequis custom might be up there in the top 3 for design challenges I’ve done so far.
I mean, at least they look striking, right? Based on a rufous legged owl, but with a touch of my own flair. Watercolors, Caran d'Ache Supracolor pencils, and touches of gouache and gel pen on 140 lb hot press Arches. (With a smidge of suffering in the form of masking fluid failure!)
