I always liked this tutorial :) it's a bit sad, you're working right now more with CGs not traditional...but well, maybe one day you will drop something traditional again :)

Do you think rubber cement glue would work?

in all my years of drawing ive never heard of frisket. O___O; this opens a whole new world for me. i saw tutorial on instagram i think, where someone used like a paper type frisket and cut out the exact shapes they wanted to mask the rest of the artwork, so the hair or whatever would come out perfect. (like with an airbrush) ive been dieing to know what these tools are! you helped me unravel at least a small part of that mystery.

I've got a question! You used acrylic for your background. When you start on the characters, you switch to watercolor, right? ;3;

Hello, I am wondering what brand of watercolor paper you were using here or that you normally use nowadays? Mine first book did not absorb the water well and the paper surface kind of rubbed off once I used too much water/layering on to of it.

I have a question. I am finally going to try using watercolor w/copics so I do the background in watercolor and the people with copics-so I was wondering how do you clean a brush after you use frisket? Because I used hot water and soap but I guess I didn't clean it well enough and it dried on the brush =__=; So is there any special way to clean the frisket brush so it doesn't ruin the brush?

i've heard frisket/maskingfluid literally is almost impossible to get off a brush which is why you use an old brush, it's the same reason why you use an old brush for gesso. fluids like this are hard/gluey/meant to be waterproof etc etc. so no luck i guess, buy more brushes? :)
