Greetings folks :)

I decided to take a small break and enjoy the holidays for a bit.
I hope everyone has a fantastic and safe New Years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For some reason i cannot break away from the watercolor and gloop pen tools.
They seem to go hand in hand. I just love the variety of textures and colors you get when appying multiple layers on top one another.

Here's a neat trick... I put a basic wash down for the hair and then I use the eraser on the stylus for the hair streaks, pretty effective eh?

Enjoy and Happy New Years :) :) :)

Mike

Yes, very nice - and good trick with the hair too. That gloop pen is a marvel, isn't it???:):):)

And, Happy New Year to you too.

Wonderful portrait, but it would be nice if you has removed the black outlines or blend it into the painting.

Great ink and wash style. I like it. Somehow, his face reminds me of the actor, August Schellenberg, I knew him on the movie, Free Willy. Yeh..agreed. Watercolor and gloop pen work so well together. :)
