This is so gorgeous. I love the colors, the concept and everything.
the use of watercolors makes it have more of a mistical/wondrous type of feel.
love it. : )

Having not read through every comment, I'm going to say something I suspect you may have heard before.

You are way to good not to work on decent paper.

kalo pake cat air itu biasanya pake kertas yg berapa gram ya? pake BC gitu bisa ya?
Reply
:iconscarlet-dragonchild:
scarlet-dragonchild Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
nyuu...kertas BC itu yang kayak gimana ya? XD hmm, yang pasti aman itu kalo pake kertas yang emang 'Watercolor paper' labelnya (nyahaha tapinya mahal. Yang canson dijual gede2 gitu lumayan ekonomis sih :D), atau setidaknya 100gram-an.
Kalo emang ga ada kertas tebel/mahal, kertas sketchbook biasa juga bisa si, cuman sebelumnya kertasnya dibasahin dulu trus dikeringin sambil dipres di kaca (er the theory is to sort of condition the paper but I never really tried it) kalo ngga, gambar biasa aja trus pas udah rada kering gambarnya dipres dibawah kaca/other heavy objects. Pokoknya jangan sampe pake HVS aja sih :D
nyu, nyu, ayo menggambar ^^

canson mahal TxT engga kuat di kantong. paling dipakenya kalo ada tugas2 aja baru pake canson.
kalo kertas sketchbook gitu bisa ya? kan kadang suka ada yg 'ngelontok2' gitu kertasnya... kalo HVS mah, dengan tangan saya ini bisa bolong kalo pake cat air... hehehe ^w^
dipres ya? biar kertasnya ngga 'ngeluntung2' gitu? (apa dalam bhs. indonesianya...? -_-?)
btw makasi ya tips2nya... ^w^ yosh2... semangat! ^w^
