Aaaaahhh!! This is beautiful <3
Man your linework is seriously the best. Is this acrylic? Watercolor? digital?
Thank you! This is mixed media (which basically means I mix watercolor, gouache and acrylic haha). The linework is a golden's acrylic inks mixed with watercolor or gouache and laid down with a pen nib. The acrylic inks give the paint enough pigment/flexibility to run through a nib.
Wow, that's so impressive. I work almost exclusively digitally lately, and work like this inspires me to go get my hands dirty with some paint and ink again! Also one last question: what size do you work in?
Thanks! Its just recently i've found a style that replicates my digital work. This was 8x10. If you're a linear kind of person, I would suggest playing around with using paint in a pen nib/inking nib. Its worked wonders for me!
Thanks for the advice! I'm definitely looking into testing out more wet-media. Sometimes working exclusively digitally sacrifices the messier, more expressive linework because it's too easy to go back an be nit-picky over details. I'll check it out
I've never even seen this movie and I recognize it as Miyazaki! Beautiful.
