    As usual, this is quite nice. Your style works well with what ArtRage provides. Can you go into your methods a little bit here? I don't know, for example, perhaps – How you are using layers and how many of them? What tools you might be using? If you are importing any textures to the experience? It looks like perhaps you have one layer for your wet watercolors that have a softer edge, and perhaps another layer that you are using for the drier, harder edged watercolor effects. I noticed the difference in particular on his nose, where the light source is strongest

    I also noticed that you have these nice splatter marks on the paper simulating the experience of rain. I was wondering if you got that from an imported texture, or perhaps from a stencil you made? Or perhaps it is just a sticker spray that I have not tried yet?

    As simple as this

    This is my simple method:

    1. I scan my graphite drawing and import it as a new image in AR.
    2. That graphite drawing layer is always the top layer using "myltiply" layering method.
    3. The canvas is set to White and no lighting. A watercolour paper that I scanned is my grain.
    4. I paint on a new layer on top of the canvas, but under the graphite drawing layer.
    5. I add new layers, mostly "multiply" to paint on top of the main paint layer. I drop the layer to the one below very often, to have just one layer to work on.
    6. I use a wet WC brush most of the time.
    7. The splatter is from some abr.brush I picked up somewhere and used for some effect. So - yes, it is a "sticker brush" I have used for splatter.
    8. The highlight is made by using the pen tool.
    9. the rain strokes are made using the pencil tool.
    10. I use the Wet Blender Palette Knife to get rid of some edges, to have a more watery look.

    So: mostly I use just one layer to paint on. If I need Another i drop it as soon as possible...as few layers as possible is what I like. Thanks for asking. Hope you understand how I am doing it...

    justjean & copespeak: good of you to comment...

    I will probably be back with some more postcard paintings soon...about the same style as this.

    Perfect. Nothing is missing. Rich technique and the end result evokes a fanciful, childlike tone. This may be one of my favorites I've seen of yours. Great use of color. It enhances the line work.
