Its lovely and sunny in Plymouth today, and I've just finished my rough for my poster for Beauty and the Beast. Its gotta be on par with lion king for my fave disney films. For this weeks challenge on the EC Collective.
I'm going for a stained glass kinda feel, like in the beginning of the movie. =)
I have know idea on hope to get the stain glass effect, eeep! I hope it works out okays.
This started off as just going to be a pen and watercolour wash, but I went crazy with colours, like normal.
Its mainly watercolour, and I'm quite proud of how it came out, I have never really used watercolours this intensely before. I used biro for the hair, a hint of faber castells, some pastels and white out pen.
I wanted her to blend in with the background, like she is almost appearing from the deep.
Like always the actual thing looks a lot better then this. Enjoy =)
Im working on a new picture for this weeks Equine Cranium Collective. =) It took me a while to come up with an idea for this image.
So I did a mermaid!
here are some working images
This is a super rough colour test, just to get the idea of what colours go where. The skin isn't quite perfect yet, I wanted it a bit more purplely.
Because my colour tester was just testing the colour (duh!) I thought it best to do a shaded piece, as the image in my head was quite a night timey picture. So I needed to sort out how dark I needed my watercolours to be. I'm quite shocked how well this came out for a super rough 5 min image.
So hopefully the final image will look somthing like the two mashed together. Fingers Crossed !
This was for an uni project we got to choose what we wanted to draw. So obviously Pin-up Greeting Cards! As it was only a short project I only did a couple. This is the valentine's day card, its my favourite =)
Draw in: Derwent Pastel pencils and Faber Castell colour pencils.
I wanted this to be a kind of optical illusion, so you can't see the girl until you look at it for a few mins. So here are the four prints. Backgrounds are done in a mixture of chalk and conte, with the girl screen printed on top.

I really wanted the line art to be printed in that awesome shiny gold foil. But in Uni we don't have the right equipment to produce that. =( So I just have to make do with dodgy gold paint.
And here is the line art, as the scans are not the best in the world. Sorry for the dirty background!
