Woo! This is an 8 x 10 inch watercolor, inked with a brush. This mouse (also known as the grasshopper mouse) howls like a wolf and hunts scorpions. This time, I actually used watercolor paper instead of bristol, which was a huge improvement.
This is the first time I’ve used this combination of mediums, and I’m fairly happy with the result. This image is 7 x 5 inches on bristol, drawn with a nib pen, and colored with watercolor. Be wary of bristol through! It doesn’t seem to like water, and as you can see the paper slightly buckled. As a side note: I was inspired by a Disney nature documentary called “Bears,” which I recommend.
Today’s sketches are from my “Creative Thinking for Designers II” class. This week has had a great start and I’m excited to learn more about how design agencies work. It seems that there’s a “suits” (business people) versus “creatives” (artists) dichotomy at first, but I was (happily) surprised to learn that every agency is different, and that the divide between the two often blurs. Next up are some designs for armoured cavalry, which will become a pen and ink drawing by this Tuesday.
