school2 by Athena-chan school2 by Athena-chan
I made a little sketch and colored it (junk XD). It's still fun to work with water colors.

Hmm, but I hate the scan ~_~ my water color scans always look so bad compared to the originals...

The stark white background of school2 by =Athena-chan works with purposeful effectiveness. This coupled with the composition, the overall flow of the line and beautiful traditional coloring makes for a simple yet stunning illustration. ( Featured by MPsai )

your "little sketch" is beautiful! even though you say that the original looks better, i still think that the one in front of me right now is fantastic! the splashes of red are really well placed!

Keep up the good work! ^_^

YOu do water color then. great! I was wondering how to keep your ink from fadeing when you start to water color. becasue I do pencil then ink then water color but the ink fades with the layer of WC.

:iconathena-chan:
Athena-chan Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2005
Oh I know what you mean... I directly colored the pencil sketch here, so I had no problems with fading lines. But if I work with lines I use my copic multiliner that is waterproof.

Thanks for the comment =)!

It's too bad you couldn't get a better scan, because this is simply gorgeous! I liek how the transparency on the blood is done and she seems so elegant.
