Minis 01

In the future I'll try to make less and less digital retouch for this kind of work :) Until I find the comfortable medium for colour (I'm thinking watercolour right now).. I'll stick with digital for a while.


Medium: Pencil rendering & some digital retouch

Hope you like it.

Love it! I've said it before and I'll say it again: like ice cream man..

I've fallen in love with gouache personally, but if you're looking for quick washes it'll be hard to beat watercolours. The reason I prefer gouache right now is since it's opaque I can always go in and make changes to the sketch, something that watercolours won't let you do but you work around that issue by doing various colour thumbnails to test out your options if you're ever unsure about something.

Very fun and loving characters. Try Ecoline watercolor. I think it is much easier to use than fx regular watercolor.

ambuj joshi: Thank you for the visit :)

Michiel: hahaha ice creaamm! thanks, man.

Scibiotic: Yeah.. I wanted to try Gouache too.. but for this particular works, I want to use something that's quite transparent. :)

Zarah: Thanks, Zarah :) will look into that one.
