Hey everyone both New and Old,

It has been quite some time since I last posted a update. I've just been super busy with School Work, Part Time Job, side projects, and such. 

So just a few minor things. 

School has been going well. I'm currently taking a Basic animation class and a Digital Imaging class. So far I have enjoyed the Basic Animation class, because There is just so much fun with the projects we do in class. I would have posted them here, but not sure how to upload a Video. I have however started a Vimeo account to post what I have made.

I also have them on my Tumblr account, which I am slightly more active on. If you have a tumblr account, you can fallow me there, though I post mostly the same stuff.

Speaking of which, I did realize the other day, outside of School work, Daily Sketch Challenge, and gift for family and friends, I haven't made much art for myself. Which I something I am hoping to fix in the near future. Hoping to maybe make a few bit of fan art or possibly paintings. There was also a comic based project I wanted to start at the beginning of the year, but got caught up with other things. Really should get on that. 

Well that's all for now, but before I go, here are some things I would like to recommend. I won't go to in depth about them, but comment below if you would like to talk about them. 

Movies: Snowpiercer, The Box Trolls, and Book of Life.
Comics: Ms. Marvel, Superior Foes of Spider-man, Batman:100
card game: Sentinels of the Multiverse, Boss Monster
Tv Shows: Steven Universe, Gravity Falls.

Till next time folks, see you around.

When do you add the ink to your watercolor paintings? before or after coloring?
Infinity-Joe Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
I typically add it before adding the water color, kind of as a cheat so I know where to stop with a color.

alright, Thanks!

No problem dude. I would recommended seeing some of the watercolor and ink drawing from Fabio Moon.

Hey Joe! Do you have any beginner tips for someone who is doing watercolor for the first time? (trying out new mediums)
Infinity-Joe Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
Sure. I normally use water color paper that is labeled as "Cold Press. 90lb" which I believe the higher the "lb" the less bend there is in the paper with wet.
I lightly sketch out the image with a "H3"pencil and erease a bit of it so it's not as noticeable. I keep two small cups of water near by, one to wash the brush with to get off the paint between colors,with a piece of paper towel to wipe the brush clean. The other cup is to get clean water to use for the paint. 

Now when getting paint for the mixing, always go light color first to darker color (like yellow to Red) only because it's harder to get the red out of the yellow if you go the other way. 

If you have one, you should get a small plastic tray to use as a mixing area. 

With water colors, when it dries, it will be lighter, so you can build up colors if they are too light later on. Where as if it is too dark, you can lighten it a bit by going over it with a wet brush to lift some of the paint. 

As for using the paint, start with the light colors before using the darker colors. 

I think that is all I can think of off the top of my head.

Thanks for commissioning Pine Pine (Space Dandy) from :iconaeolus06:  I enjoyed it too, and like I said there, I have quite a few favorite female anime characters who are unjustly neglected in fan art.
