Final project, bitches! Awww yeah! Now I'll go work on the Spring kitty and see if I can get her in before the deadline, too. Yay!
At least you had a set way of pronouncing gouache, even it was wrong... I had absolutely no idea, so every time I'd say it, it sounded like I was yodeling going over the vowels. >:[
I haven't drawn that coffee guy for so long, haha. Poor guy. Maybe I'll do a minicomic with him in it after my neck soreness is sorted out. :B
I hope you get unneckpained soon.. I feel a strange fondness towards my neighbors neo-raver dog.
What's gouche like to work with? I've used acrylics, oils and watercolours, but never gouche.
That's all I can think of right now... I think it also works best if you use a very limited palette, but maybe that's the art school geek in me talking. I'd recommend just getting white and black to start with if you really want to try them, so you can test paint consistencies and such.
Summerby's starting to remind me of a giraffe, with that neck! Reminds me of that kid in Willy Wonka who got shrunk and had to be stretched. 0_0
I like his expression as he pulls the kite, it's both silly and all around HAPPY.
When I look at your artwork I think of the word "fluid" to describe it. Hope that sounds positive to you.
