Spiderwoman by butones Spiderwoman by butones
I was so pissed when all my hard work rendering lots of the lines in the bg were gone after my amateurish watercolor skills were done on the piece.. -__- sigh... I should have practiced more.... XD

The drawing was beautiful, but the painting above is a pain.

Watercolors = SUICIDE

You could build up way better tones with acrylic washes for example. They do act like watercolors, if they are soluted. And when a layer is dry you can place another glace on the top. golden acrylics are just pefect.

Try that with watercolours ;)

Why are you using them anyway??

Good perspective. Nice effect on the mix of inks and watercolors.

I don't know what you think you ruined there but I'm digging the hatching you've got going there. Nice work! Love the foreshortening on the fingers and the hand poses in general! :)

You should ink it after you paint.

Well at least next time.

I can't tell if you were afraid to use more vibrant colors and loose your line work, or if it is intentionally light.

I threw it in photochop and was looking at it with levels and it looks like the color and the line work are in competition. Particularly in the legs with the shading. The top half looks good, but when you get to the legs your hatching gets lost in the color
(Now I did darken it until the ink fill disappeared and it had a "uniform" blackness overall more like a finished print than a sketch but you get the idea)

You might even try it without line work at all.
Though the line work is sweet.

You might be surprised at what you get with watercolor alone.
