asl;kdfjasdl;kfj you were busy while I was gone! It's really refreshing to see your watercolors. I'm oddly in love with the boots that Link is wearing... they seem so realistic. It oddly reminds me of gingers and odder impressions.
Wow really?? Come to think of it, I don't think I have seen on either. And I mean, as nerdy as this may sound, I do look at quite a bit of Zelda fanart. I can't help it, it's just so cool. But anyway, I'm really grateful for this awesome compliment. It meant a lot to me, especially when you mention that it gives off that legendary feel. That means I have pulled off what I wanted!
YES! The entire painting was done in watercolor actually...oh wait there are some colored pencil usage. Like, I used colored pencil for his hair ANDDD the brighter hummingbird, but that's about it. I suck with digital media, so I stick to traditional
hmmm i see... well u are really good with trad media... its good to see trad media users still, now a days more and more ppl go for the digital, i like both and they both have their appeal, lately I've been doing mostly digital cuz I havent got the money to get me more art supplies... my brushes are resting on my desk waiting to be used again... I mostly use markers, color pencils and watercolor, at least for anime-ish pics, for other things I use mostly chalk and oil pastels... but i aint as good as u xD
I'm sure you're good! I love traditional media because there are so much authentic techniques one can use them with. I think that you could get really impressive in the future. I mean, everyone has their own individual skill. Sometimes I look at some of the watercolorists on here and know that there is no comparison and I wonder how they have created something like that, but then I realize that everyone has their own styles XD I have tried digital media before...but...it's not my thing. Like, I don't really care if I get super good at it or anything, it's just a hobby for me. But to tell you the truth, I don't really get the same feeling with digital as I go with traditional. I don't feel like I have accomplished anything. Does that make sense?
Well it sort of makes sense because when u are working digitally, at least when it comes to coloring, the programs already have everything u need. I mean, yes u still need the vision to create, but its not like u're the one mixing the paint to create the right colors, or handling the brush plus... it is a piece that is only digital and doesnt materialize in the physical world. Sure u can print ur work but its not like the actual feeling u get when u finish a piece and have it in ur hands, and u can see all details and feel the textures and all. But I still get satisfaction when I finish a piece digitally cuz every time I learn new things plus there's little things that u can only do digitally... like animations xD and its always fun to see u'r creations "come to life" It's weird but yeah, somethings are not for everybody and some are better than others, u'll always have that but as long as u do what u do because that is what u like then u're good... and i think I just got a little too carried away xDDD
