Almost human by frostyshadows Almost human by frostyshadows
watercolor, and a little bit of pencil crayon

okay it was supposed to be a practice drawing but I ended up having too much fun with the hair and spent a few hours on it.

I'm going through a purple eyes phase .______.

Looks good. One of my friends that is an artist has an interesting trick that helps her bring more out in her work. She paints on neutral canvas or backgrounds like a grey or medium tone and then paints the shadows and highlights. I know in art class we did stuff on black paper. I like the idea of working forward and backward though. It's interesting to see the various techniques that artists use and try new techniques. Keep working on your dreams. They say the Beetles played and practiced over 10,000 hours before they got to the point of fame and notoriety that we still remember them for today.

As long as you believe in yourself, your work, your skills and ability and you know you can do it and you are willing to do the work, you are  going to achieve some awesome and wonderful things.

I've seen videos of artists doing that, and some of the resulting artworks are gorgeous! Do you know if she uses acrylic or oil? I don't think it would work for watercolor.

10000 hours is supposed to be the amount of time needed to become amazing at something c:

And finally, thanks for giving such a thoughtful and nice comment d'aww :hug:

I just do lots and lots of layers :P for watercolors it's usually lighter colors first, then add darker layers until you get the contrast you want.

aaaand for watercolors I usually mess up at some point and end up using whiteout .__.

I like it. The mix between pencil crayons and watercolor is a unique and creative twist. Overall, I can tell that you worked on the hair the most. So much detail..! I like how you can most of the strands. I also like how this is on the line between real and 'unreal'.

The background also really makes her 'pop'.

Well done. ouo
