White Wolf by merimask White Wolf by merimask
Another watercolor...a very stylized white wolf. I've noticed my art tends to be more about strong designs and less about composition. At least that's what comes easiest to me. I can do a landscape if I need to, but it's not my strong point. *shrug*

Like I've said before; I'd have made one hell of a tattoo artist. If only I could get past the blood. And the needles... O_O"

This has three of my favorite things in it. A wolf. The color blue (phthalo blue...my favorite shade of blue!). And that fun swirly thing I seem to like to do so much. :-)

This one is going to be in my print shop as well.

lol I have the same issue, and most the time my pictures are characters floating in dead space
Recently I've tried removing the white of the paper when scanning them and replacing it with the dA gray and it helps make the design pop and to make it seem less imcomplete as it lacks a background/setting

I'm the same way with needles, blood is fine, but I faint reguarly when I get my blood drawn lol

That's a neat idea re: using the DA gray for a background. :-)

it's lovely, and I'd say it makes a fine composition just the way it is :)

Thank you. :-) It's sort of just floating there but it does look pretty 'cause I used that vibrant blue again. Simple & clean.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. :-)

I guess I don't know why I didn't share these paintings & drawings sooner. I figured 2-D art was all over DA already & who'd want to see my stuff?

That's exactly the question: who WOULDN'T want to see your stuff! All of your stuff! Don't sell yourself short. ;)

Thank you. :-) The blue shading is a fun trick when you want to do a white figure on white paper & make it stand out. I use it all the time, because I'm too lazy to paint backgrounds.

yeah indead :D I use it sometimes, but my scanner doesn't see it. [link] I used a cream colour for a shine around it, but my scanner didn't see it. That sucks really much... but yours is great! :D
