inking is fun

I just wish I was better with it...
A woman with a lot of hair (hair again?!). May-be inspired by Marianne from the awesome novel "The Gargoyle" by Andrew Davidson...

I have magic hair, that glows...

wanted to do something with rainbows... it's only a digital doodle in preparation for a watercolour... hope I can get the mood on paper.
The areas of blue and red are broader, because they are in our reception of the visual spectrum...

no question of patience...

... is it to experiment with photoshop.

For DRSP blog. Took me 2.5 hours. Approximately 2h to paint, 0.5h to figure out layer stuff.

Just two annotations:

I use adjustmentlayers a lot - when post processing my photographs - but only recently in painting.

Other than Drop Shadow I had never used Layer Effects much. But as I learned from Anne, they can come in quite handy. :)

colouring of manga outlines by elma

I coloured this beautiful lineart by elma.

It's worth mentioning that aside from my flatting job for trenchmaker this was my most elaborate work in months.

The finished piece. It's watercolour on A5 Winsor&Newton Smooth Surface Cartridge Pad, 220g/m², slightly yellow. The lines were printed with laser printer.

I wanted the figure to brightly pop out from the background. I had put up the masking fluid weeks before and then buried the sheet under a pile of paper. I know, one should not let the masking fluid be on the paper too long. Two days maximun and stuff, they are saying.
Well, after the wash it peeled off the paper quite nice. But it took some of the printer toner with it, so I lost line detail on crucial areas...

Before the wash I had taped the sheet to my wooden table. Plus point: the paper doesn't go all wavy (so much). Minus point: you can't turn the thing.
Big pic: work in progress
Small pics: details

high key and anime

I tried high key (ask wikipedia) on one of my characters. Who is rather not qualified for it because of her dark red eyes and dark purple hair... well whatever. In the end I saved over my psd file... I'm done with this crap.

I'm so taking this seriously this time!

It's a troll - with a bee-oo-tiful torso. Haven't practised on arms and legs, let alone hands and feet, yet XD

male anatomy

I fear I forgot everything I ever learned about muscles. I forgot so much since reading Dragon Ball XD... ah, glorious days of drawing imitating master Toriyama... I'm not even sure any more about the pectoris maior and the sternocleidomastoideus (great word!)... should consume a little Bammes tonight before bed...

Also I found some canvas brushes (forgot where D=...) and doodled these
