Using Watercolours -TUTORIAL by A-Xofia Using Watercolours -TUTORIAL by A-Xofia
Ok! by popular demand here goes another tutorial! :aww:
Just as I promised! =) I hope it is helpful! ^^


PLEASE READ:
- IF YOU EVER RESORT TO THIS TUTORIAL OR USE TIPS FROM IT LET ME KNOW! ^^ I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THE RESULTS! :XD:
- Sorry for the REALLY poor quality of the photos...:P
- This is just a SUGGESTION! I don't really know how to use watercolours properly: this is just merely stuff I've learned from my own personal experience using this medium and I'm completely self-taught! =) I'm not saying that my way of colouring is better then any other!

Muito ˙til mesmo. Eu estou a comešar a experimentar com aguarelas agora. Decidi avanšar porque finalmente dominei a parte de contorno e sombreados. Durante anos nunca consegui trabalhar a nÝvel de criar profundidade. Agora finalmente consegui e decidi avanšar.

You seem to be using a lot of different media while doing art, which one is your favourite? :)

PS. Finished is written with one n ... (sorry x'D)

You have a cool way of colouring and it's so totally different XDD I think it's interesting that you start inking while still colouring it :3 but that's a cool idea :3 I always have to re-ink my pictures XD
