OKAY. I FIXED A FEW THINGS. thats why its in your watch again x3

Finished piece ---> [link]

Anyone with more questions, comment please.
I WILL reply.


I also understand I suck at explaining xP tee hee.
So this has either confused you, or warped you.


AND. With regards to the paper type, I know that saying any paper will do seems a little reckless (as with a few comments I've gotten, people question me).
It probably isn't the best thing in the world, so if you want to be cautious, use watercolour (i.e. Cartridge) paper, then its far less likely the curl up on you.
I am just a lazy bum, and use printer paper (has a good quality for painting on) for my paintings.
But hey, they turn out nicely anyways, or so people have said x3

So yeah, its my bad guys. I should forewarned about the bubblyness of paper, I just didn't think it was that important -- unless you use mass loads of water x.x

I think I used acrylic, but watercolour can be used for the white dots too.
