Pikachu by blix-it Pikachu by blix-it
Here's a tutorial I made about preparing watercolor paper for painting! The photographs from the tutorial are of this painting in process. c: The tutorial is for #watercolorists painting contest. X3


-------------------------------------------------------------

Pikachu ~ from Pokemon c:

GIVE IT YOUR LUNCH OR IT ZAPS YOU. :la:

Painted with Daniel Smith watercolors, on Arches 140lb Cold Press, with some prisma color pencil and photoshop edits for funs. <3

>< mmmm. *hide*

Maybe completed this in April, but lately I've had this thing about uploading stuff to the internet. I just want to hide it all under my bed and go draw something better. I haven't really made a giant painting like this for a really long time, I've just been making a lot of little paintings. So I'm kind of nervous I guess, even though I like it.

Inspired by a really amazing (shocking, even) childhood memory of lightening. Many people grow up in places where lightening is common, but I did not ever see it until I was 5 or 6 and visiting Oklahoma. X3 (I came from Alaska, where there was rarely lightening.)

My first memory of lightening is very vivid. Oklahoma was so wide and flat (I had never seen flat before, either), made of gold grass and warm dirt under a dusty blue sky... for days that was all it looked like. And then everything turned purple. Flat land in shadow with a thin line of turquoise beneath towering thunderheads. Then suddenly, lightening. ^^

Maybe Pikachu is in Oklahoma?

Made to be a pair with Ninetails. :hug:
Here are the prints of them that were at Sakura Con.

Thank you for looking! >3< :blowkiss:

How in the hay did you ever get such a vibrant lightening using only water color? Just, damn this is some skill! o.o
