A spitfire and healer
With this drawing I scanned the line work, cleaned it up, printed it out, and painted on the printout with water colors and gouache. That painted version was used in various layers in the final color piece. You can hardly see the paint in there, but it was fun to use mixed media. I think I'll play with it more in the future.
These are two playful characters I designed for a story of mine. She has a headstrong, spitfire personality and the frog guy is a chill healer and sage of sorts.
Let's see, on the auditory front, while painting this I was listening to the audio book version of "Fiasco" by Thomas E. Ricks, an interesting account of the conflict in Iraq.
