Wonder Woman study

I've decided to pick up painting again after a long break. These last days I've been practicing from reference a lot, mostly sketches, but now finally a painted study that is worth postingkaomoji set 1 6/19  My skills are so rusty! F2U Kaomoji | Lying Down _(:3J L)_ | iikao #1 I need to polish them up a bit before more complex paintings or commissions. 

Ah, here's the reference photo (a screenshot from the movie) and also a wip:

Just having fun wandering through your gallery again...

Love the color here. I know this is digital, but it has some similarity with the way watercolors feel. I'm trying to learn, and I need to get the courage to mix up the colors like you have here. (WW has always been one of my favorite superheroes.)

Oh, thank you!

Watercolors are difficult to paint with, maybe because I don't have much knowledge of the medium, but I do enjoy the look of it. It's nice that you have taken an interest to it!

Well... digital, watercolor, oils, clay... They're all "difficult" until you get the courage to dive in and start learning. ;-) It takes courage, and the tenacity to work through a lot of real failures in order to get good.

Very true. I haven't given watercolors much of a chance, but I think it's very fun to mess around with from time to time. It would be nice to take a class and really learn the techniques someday ^^

It is true! Once you get a basic feel for them (especially the sense of, "Less is more"), they are a lot of fun. I think because they really push you to move quickly and not overwork/overthink the piece. Yeah, you can still get into fiddly details, but you can't keep going over and over a painting like you can with oils/acrylics or even digital.
