Watercolor Sketch for lovexparody

Tried putting traditional sketch photo out of scrap gallery for the first time, I dont quite have enough inspiration to make full-color painting atm, hope you enjoy my traditional sketch, they are also nice and pretty in my opinion

Original character belongs to :iconlovexparody:

I used 0.3mm Kurutoga pencil to draw outlines,  quite sharp and clean compared to 0.5mm lead 

if you have any question, feel free to ask.

what kind of watercolor did you use? 
emperpep's avatar
artist quality watercolor :)

brands are hobein, daniel smith, qor, mgraham, winsor&newton, sennelier, rembrandt, schmincke
Really like the character and the way you use watercolors. Totally flawless!

May I ask what do you think about Holbein Watercolors? I see them often in the pictures you take so I was wondering if it's a good brand or maybe it's better to stick with another one, like Daniel Smith or Winsor&Newton. Thank you!

I feel like Holbein is less pigmented but this brand has so many nice and important colors for my watercolor painting, it also doesnt flow very well compared to other brand because there is no oxgall but that is not a big deal.

I think if I combine Holbein along with other brands the result usually turned out to be quite satisfying compared to using only Holbein or other brands alone, each brand has its own advantage and usefulness.

Truly magnificent and gorgeous! I can't even muster myself to ask any questions, because it seems so impossible to reach your level even by the means of asking about your process of creating this masterpiece. :3
