This is my favourite time of year!
I’m pleased that I finished this one, I haven’t been finishing much anything lately because I’ve been a little down. Seeing all the pumpkins and decorations on people’s houses though has perked me up a bit.
Have a Spooktacular Halloween! (Pardon my puns)
Kuretake Pens, Black ink, white ink, watercolours, glue, holographic gold glitter.
So I recently purchased a pack of 12 of Kuretake’s Clean Color Brush Pens. Here is a review I have done of them so far.
So I first swatched all the colours to see what they looked like. They have great pigment to them, are really bright and don’t appear to bleed through the paper (I used a plain moleskine notebook). Afterwards I played around with some doodles. These pens create finer lines than Pentel’s brush pen, which I like. You can see with the flowers I tried blending the colours, I learned afterwards that there was a better way to blend them. The tree branches and leaves were testing brushstrokes.
Overall, I like these pens, they’d be amazing for when I do gesture drawings. Furthermore, I’d like to see if I can use water with these pens, so you may see a secondary review on them in the future.
As you can see, my skills for creating titles are ah-ma-zing. *Sarcasm*
This one took over a year to finish.
I wasn’t working on this on and off for a year, I started it, did 8-12 hours of work on it, then left it there sitting on my hard drive until exactly a year later. Like most of my purely digital work, it started off as a doodle/practice painting of the deer skull. If you haven’t noticed by now, I like bones. They are, and probably for a long while will be a common occurrence in most of my work. Also, I really like antlers.
Suprise! This too is a print available for purchase on my Society6 page! Go here to buy one!
