I've been wanting to get into watercolours too! That and gouache. I've been pretty good all and all. I went back to school to study Chinese Medicine, but I still do art part time, I've been doing sci-fi stuff lately. For myself I've been working on creating a new style that's far more forgiving and better for sketching. I'm planning on doing web-comics in my free time, I just need to work out a speedier eye-popping style.
We should do a sketch exchange or something!
