Hello hello! Hope you all had a good weekend. :3 Today I have another sketch to share with you! Presenting Claire, another character from our upcoming webcomic, in chibi mermaid form! 😀 Can you spot all the fishes swimming around her?
Mermaid Claire was a lot of fun to draw, even with the difficulty of drawing her hand(s). I feel like my style is slowing evolving towards a style that is consistent and something I can be happy with. I’d like to improve my sketching speed, but I’m sure that will come as I continue practicing. 🙂
Cloud noted that the watercolor paper we were using was a little thin, and rippled when she was painting, so today I sketched on a thicker 300 gram paper from Strathmore. The texture was different, more like little blocks – a more mechanical texture. It holds pencil well, though, so I was happy with that! I’m looking forward to seeing how it looks when painted. :3 If you paint with watercolors, what’s your favorite paper to use?
- Time: 2 hours
- Tools: Strathmore 300 gram watercolor paper, 0.7 mechanical pencil
