Here is a little piece I did in the same watercolor style as the robot from the other day. I am really liking this look. There is something about the watercolor wash technique that attracts me. I used to be somewhat of a perfectionist about lines and color fills. Coming from a background of loving comics and animation, I have always liked a good crisp line and a perfect filling of color. I have learned over the past several years, however, that real beauty lies in imperfection. We actually are drawn to art that looks human made. It's one of the reasons that some animation companies are experimenting with a sort of throwback to the old hand drawn methods that were loved by many. Now that computers can render movies so lifelike that they hardly seem animated at all, we wonder if maybe something has been lost with all the progress.
So, viva la happy accidents. :)
Thanks for reading,
Thanks for stopping by. I'm a published illustrator working on getting better every day. My goal for my work is for it to be charming, bright and endearing. I share my ongoing work progress online because I welcome all the encouragement and feedback I can get as I try to improve my skills. I currently have a children's book project that I am nearing the end of.
