So my name is Colleen. I have no idea how to work this things, so expect nothing earth-shattering here. Just random stuff once in a blue moon. So... um I like to read. Alot. If I'm reading, walk away. Slowly. I am behind on every TV show I like. Hot showers fuel my life. French toast and grape juice are my happy place. Don't ever come between me and my tea. Um.... love taking pictures. Love fresh baked cookies. Love a rainy day. Everything else takes a ticket and waits in line. P.S. "Write it. Shoot it. Publish it. Crochet it, sauté it, whatever. MAKE." - Joss Whedon
My god i love this scene to an unhealthy degree. I would trade my parents for a day if I could do this….
- Come to lie on your belly, and take a few deep breaths.
- Once you’re ready, bend your knees and hold onto the outside edge of your right ankle and then your left. Once you have a firm hold of each ankle, try to keep your toes together, either pointing or flexing your feet. Lift your feet up as high as you can and shift your weight forward so you’re resting on your naval instead of on your pubic bone.
- Hold for five deep breaths and then slowly release.
I love this pose.
I was testing out some cloud brushes I made in Photoshop last night and went little crazy with them. Each drawing was done under an hour. I will be making a tutorial plus download to the brushes after I finish the next Fisheye Placebo strip :)
- The closest I could find on Amazon to the watercolour set I use is the Sakura brand of Koi Assorted WaterColours Field Set.
- Just use any old toothbrush. I used to use the ones that my dentist would give me after a visit, just because those were kind of cheap and I wouldn’t actually use them anyways.
- I use acrylic for flicking and highlights because watercolour-whites tend to fade when they dry.
- Also, remember to keep your hands clean, because nothing’s worse than smudging graphite into your watercolours and then unable to get it out.
- Try to avoid black and white when possible. They tend to dull the colours and it loses that watercolouring lustre.
Since I started watercolouring again for my daily sketches, I’ve gotten a lot of asks/dA notes on if I could give a tutorial on watercolouring and also more specific questions that overlapped each other, so I decided to do a semi guide/tips/answering thing.
I actually started watercolouring before I went into digital medium, so I have a bit of personal experience, but I am essentially self-taught when it comes to watercolouring since there weren’t a lot of watercolour tutorials online back then to begin with, so I cannot promise that these are the absolute correct way of doing things.
Hope it helps anyways :)
