Seal Kiss by MinnaSundberg Seal Kiss by MinnaSundberg
Just a sweet little watercolor illustration for chapter 3. ^_^

I guess this is the last thing I'll post that has a connection to chap three, and after this we'll move on completely to the next one.

Ugh, I need to buy new blue color buttons for my watercolor set, both of the ones I've got now are down to their last 5% or so, and have kind of turned all waxy from pressure and stuff. But they're so expensive! I was at the art supply store a couple of weeks ago, and they're like 15€ per tiny little piece! I was so dumbfounded by the price that I didn't even buy one and just grabbed the ink nibs I came in for in the first place. o_o (Those things wear down in like 15 comic pages, so I had to stock up for the summer.)

Ink, watercolors, A3 watercolor paper

Just out of curiousity, but what kind of water colours do you use? I'm a fan of water colours myself, but all I have are the cheap thingies you find in your local supermarket. They are usable, but I might consider investing in better equipment (it's a curse of the artist really: art supplies are so freakin' expensive.)

On a picture related note, I think this is adorable. I loved Ville as a seal. : > I think I'm gonna miss him like that, but at the same time, I'll be eager to see what else he transforms into. :la:

The brand I've been using is called Schmincke, and I can definitely recommend it. Thankfully super-expensive stuff usually also lasts pretty long, I've had the same set for like five years or something. o_o

I'm just glad he's finally got some legs again. x>

That is pretty long. Though, I have this weird, cheap thingy, that I got years ago. Though I must say, last year, I bought a simple, new one... but the colours I use often empty quite quickly.
But thanks, I'll see if I can find something similar in the art store~

Tehehe. But now he's got to worry about those antlers. x3

I really love your comic and read every single page with care.
Your Art in this comic (and around) is really amazing. :)

And this picture is so lovely. :heart:
(I wish I could do some advertising for this comic.)

And yes, colours - especially wather colours beceme expensive during the last 5 years. x_x
What sort of colour are you using?

Hee, I'm really glad to hear that. Thank you. ^_^

The brand of the watercolor set I have is called "Schmincke" (wow, that was hard to spell) and it's a pretty high quality set that has lasted for years. Got it as some sort of payment for something way back in my teen years, so I guess that's why I didin't have a clue about the cost up until now; never actually bought any of that stuff myself. :/

You're welcome. ^^

And you must be lucky to never need to bought any of these colours on your own even if you're drawing that much (and good).
In the last 10 years (I lived on my own) I bought colours and other drawing stuff for more than 300 €. |D
That's why I know that these things getting more and more expensive. *cries*

I'm used to two brands called Nerchau and Faber (I think they're german. At least the last one I'm positive about ^^° )
They aren't that expensive but have a very good quality.

you can't get liquid watercolors? theyre probably more expensive to start but I would expect them to last longer

I thought of it, but I would probably just end up squeezing way too much of them out of the tubes (they're in tubes, right?) and a whole bunch of it would just go to waste. I'm simply awful at estimating the amount of paint needed for anything. ;_;
