And hummingbirds hid
between the branches,
down Kingfisher Street.

For those who don't know: this guy here is Van, the oneironaut. He's a really nice guy that I've met in my dreams a couple of times...some sort of guide, or big brother, or something I can't figure out.

This is actually a pretty personal thing, since everything in here is a reference to different dreams I have had. And I really like how this turned out, so I'm glad I did this idea justice!

...and there you have it! :boing:
I really suck at writing comments in here, haha

Copic brush pen & markers.

Oh! Un personaje recurrente en tus sueños?? Interesante!
Yo desde que era pequeño tengo un poder por defecto cuando sueño: volar (cogiendo carrerilla y aleteando los brazos xD). Puedo hacerlo siempre que quiera. Y es curioso, porque cuando intento hacer otra cosa (lanzar un rayo de energía por la boca, por ejemplo) o no me sale o hago otra cosa (y débil). Qué cosas de la cabeza ai ai...

En serio? wowww! yo lo he intentado, pero no he logrado verdad es que la mayoría de las veces no tengo control sobre lo que hago en mis sueños, las veces que he estado completamente consciente mientras sueño han sido pocas así que no he hecho mucho :B pero lo disfruto igual, principalmente por la gente que conozco y por los lugares que se me aparecen.

What colors did you use on the hair to get the colors and shading so perfect? I just started experimenting with brush pens. @_@
kurisquare's avatar
I colored the hair with E15, E29 and E49---and lots of blending! I love coloring hair with Copic markers, they're just too much fun to blend @w@

And hey, which kind of brush pens? 8D brush pens...they can be a little hard to get the hang of, but once you do they're pretty amazing! I've gotten really attached to mine haha ;w; NEVER LOOKING BAAACKKK

I have a small set of Copics and a small set of Prismacolors. I also have a really awesome watercolor squishy pen thing that I occasionally use realy lightly for bigger areas as a base, but I'm just so, so terrible with blending. I can't seem to get surfaces even. D:

Oooh, a waterbrush? like...those that you fill with water and then use as a brush with watercolours? I ordered a couple of those online, they should get here next week 8D can't wait to try them out!

Copics are great for blending; Prismas...not so much. I tend to use Prismas for solid shading, because it's nearly impossible for me to blend them without failing. Horribly. And I've heard about lots of people having problems with even surfaces... (well they're not easy to get so yeah) I should really make a video about it or something, I guess that would help x'D it's mostly about being fast and determined! (as weird as it sounds)

I've learned to be as quick as I can with copics.

To be honest the only time I really use the prismas are when I can't find the color in my copics. They were a gift from someone who knew I liked fancy markers but didn't know what kind. xD

And yes! That's exactly the waterbrush thing I'm talking about! I got a kit and it's FANTASTIC. It took a little getting used to, but it's the most fun I've had with watercolors everrrr.
