A Foxy Watercolor

A fox watercolor painting:

I am planning to tweak it further and add in more blues and splatters for the background. I didn’t mix most of the pigments; I used a set of watercolor paints I obtained from a long time ago and each tube is already some manufactured shade (…at one point in my life I’d like to try my hand at using the traditional watercolor pigments like burnt umber and vermilion…) It was a fun experiment and a nice diversion from the usual art I do.

Rogue.

The Martyr

Promised myself I’d get back in the swing of posting once a week, so here’s a sketchbook scan:

The Matyr

My scanner hates my sketchbook – the blurry side and off coloring are after-effects of its perpetual anger. I’ve also learned a new lesson- use a ruler when drawing chess pieces!

Anyway, the image was first a doodle of a dragon head and then I played with some new black micron pens. The bottommost swirls are actually purple micron pen, but the color’s off.

Someday I’d like to write a full story about dragons and knights and castles. I have so many ideas; one day I’ll sit down and write them all out.
