Submitting some traditional stuff I had worked previously. Anyone following me on the other social media networks has seen these works (and progress shots) already lol;; bear with me~~ The only recent work I'm dealing with now are commissions.
Anyway. I like to stylize and mix kimonos with some other historical fashion- here I attempted to mix rococo in there lol;; YOU KNOW, JUST, SHOVE FRILLS WHEREVER THEY FIT.
Process:: Hmm it's almost 50/50 marker and watercolors. I use the markers as overlay tools on top of watercolor paint (sometimes vice-versa), for instance when it turns out too opaque or dull, and the area can't hold more water. Skin, hair, and some minor details are done fully in copic, while the bg (blue tones) and obi/corset areas are primarily watercolors, overlayed with copic. The trees/snowy effect are done with gouache. The vibrant blue on her kimono, is all watercolors.
p.s Those who commissioned me btw, I had written on my journal an important message: [link]
I love this! It's so beautiful <3 Lovely work! Quick question, what type of paper did you use for this piece? Most of my art consists of watercolor paints, but recently I was given some Copic markers. I want to combine the two mediums in my artwork. But I want to get the right paper that is sturdy enough to handle the markers' ink and watercolor paint when they are combined. Thanks for sharing your wonderful art
