WATER EMPEROR (ink and colored pencils on paper)
Hey guys! Finally here’s a new work from my sketchbook! I’m going back to the dark depths of the sea as I bring you “WATER EMPEROR” - my own interpretation of Poseidon, the Greek God of the Sea.
Hope you like this one. More works are coming! See you guys soon! :)
This weekend’s weather is just so disgusting - bringing me all the boredom in my place. Not in the mood to draw so I’ll just share some previous pieces from my sketchbook. And for today, another watercolor masterpiece is quite appropriate.
ABSTRACT SORCERER (ink and watercolor on paper)
This is my fourth piece from my sketchbook created and rendered in full color using watercolor. The sorcerer is based from one of the character sketches I did way back in high school.
Another watercolor artwork I did before. Inspired by fantasy stories where birds are used as messengers from one kingdom to another.
THE MESSENGER (ink and colored pencil on paper)
Going back to work tomorrow and the message is clear: “working with crushed hands and brains”. See you soon. :)
Underwater artworks are one of the most challenging art pieces for me. I don’t know but there’s something in water that I really find so hard to draw. Hmm. I know I’ve already posted underwater artworks like mermaids and sea lovers, but using a different medium makes a huge difference. That’s why it has been a challenge for me to pic an underwater scene in this next artwork I did. Just a perfect theme when I recently started to use watercolors as one of my media in drawing execution.
Take a look at the final drawing (my apologies for posting a not so good quality of image; just used a common digital camera for this - peace Pia! haha):
Close Encounter With A Sea Monster (ink and watercolor on paper)
I thought picking an underwater scene was a suicide. But it’s all worth it. The good thing is that watercolors made all things easier for me, from experimenting on the background to the full utilization of all spaces of the paper.
Well, anyway, hope you guys like this. :)
PS: I’ve been busy for a while and failed to update my Google Plus posts. I got back a day ago and realized I’m missing all the fun. Just today, my friend Lee tagged me over a new Fine Art Theme called Anime Art Sunday. And I’m planning to drop this artwork as my first entry. :)
The last time I posted about my first stint in creating artworks using watercolors was during the time I returned to my hometown to spend the Holy Week. So now I’ll be sharing one of the few artworks I’ve created so far. It is called “MOONSTRUCK” drawn with ink and watercolor on paper.
“MOONSTRUCK” (ink and watercolor on paper)
What’s nice about watercolor painting is that a one single hue can be experimented into a variety of color schemes. It’s my first time to use this medium so I’m quite surprised how it gave a beautiful effect on my ink drawings. Good thing the sketchbook I’ve used have pages with enough durability to resist water.
More to go in watercolor painting and I’m getting excited for new and interesting subjects. Don’t worry,I’ll keep you guys posted. :)
