My fave scene in Terry Pratchett's Hogfather. Decided to draw the scene for more practice as usual. View the scene HERE.

Brush and Ink • Water Colors
Cheers :B

This. This, this, this. One of the greatest bits in all of his books. A wonderful thesis statement for all of his work, I feel. This, forever.

Yes but I suck at gouache although I haven't tried yet.^^; I just feel like I won't do good with it.

that's why you play with it first, a brand new learning experience where you don't treat it , or expect it to act, like a previois material you've used but a fresh somthing.

and when you think you have it, or at-lest understand it, try a practice proper sheet, and then try on a proper piece of work.

i love playing with materials i haven't used before, its fun you don't know what sort
of mess your going to make. or what you find you like.

buy or get the cheap one, gouache can be quiet expensive

that all i can say on the subject for now

I... I remember this scene. I'd read it a long time ago and it has really touched me just now. Especially the part about the sun.

I flat out loved this dialog between Susan and Death and you've captured it perfectly. X3
