watercolour textures

Young Nick Wilde and Skye

Recently i found some watercolour brushes for free and thought I’ll try it cuz digital watercoloring sounds interesting.  So far I think the brush is o k.

Reflections on wet pavements. The city itself is a natural watercolourist! It’s been a long rainy day at the library, and although I feel frustrated with myself and my work right now, it was worth rolling up just for this.

Hey Ami, so I'm not sure if you were already asked this, but how do you incorporate the watercolour texture into your drawings? I know you said that you got them from cgarofani, but how do you go about manipulating the textures into what you're colouring?

You take the texture you want and copy paste it into the file you’re working on! Position the layer with the texture over what you want (for me, I put it over hair. Make sure the texture layer is right on top of the layer with color), resize/rotate until you like where it is and select “Clipping Group” so it only covers hair. I use Paint Tool SAI but I’m sure photoshop and etc. have similar ways to clip the layer over another. I desaturate the texture till it’s gray (black/white), and set a layer mode for the texture layer. In SAI, I use “Shade” or “Lumi and Shade” (I have to darken colored layer though if I use Lumi/Shade), but for subtle effects you can use Overlay or anything really. Just try all the layers LOL
And then I change opacity!!

EXPERIMENTS: These are some experiments I’ve done to get some more inspiration. I’ve used similar styles and techniques to the practitioners I’ve researched and for the moment I’ve just used visuals from the Disney version of the film and the live action film of ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’

I’ve really enjoyed doing these experiments, especially the watercolour onto a book and the collages. They also taught me that the techniques I want to use for my final outcome are going to take me quite a long time so I need to get started soon. 

I still like the idea of combining a variety of techniques to create a textured and visually stimulating images involving the main characters and scenes.
