Knivesmask by RetkiKosmos Knivesmask by RetkiKosmos

I got the inspiration for this image from a dream I had
but the dream didn't have the colors here, I nearly used up all my purple watercolor paint here :ohnoes:


---
drawn with:
Watercolors, Black India ink, Prismacolor markers, colored pencils, white ink, GIMP

The symbolism and design-work in some of your pieces, like this one, is amazing. Your use of color is also enviable. I'm trying to get to your level with watercolors. :)

but I still consider myself a newbie when it comes to watercolors ^^; I do a lot of touch ups with colored pencils, and I edit it digitally too.

I think most people do. Heck, you can't get around it most times, you at least have to tweak the colors because most scanners don't pick up the colors right.

I can't tell you how many ink blots I've taken out of pages over the years...

Those colors look so cool. The background is awesome, I can't believe you did it traditionally x.x Great job!
