This is what happens when you haven't drawn your own original characters for almost a decade! You forget which one is which!
It's still a month away from the opposite day but whatever
These are the Love Bunnies
, Zee and Kay.
The last time I drew them was in 2009. Zee is the male #bunny
, supposedly the orange one, and Kay is the green female bunny. But this is 2018, we don't care about genders anymore.
I used to draw a lot. In fact, my first online job was as a digital artist here in dA. I took digital painting commissions online since 2006 equipped with a fancy Wacom knock-off drawing tablet. Then I found out about wire wrapped jewelry
. My passion shifted a little. So very little, it's basically only a nudge away.
I haven't done traditional art since early 2000. When you think about it that was almost 2 decades ago. Let that sink in for a moment...
I couldn't figure out watercolor then despite having numerous books of watercolor how-tos. The last time I painted, I painted with oil paints. I was 18. Then in college, we used cheap poster paints but mostly to paint color blocks for project assignments. So that was my entire history of using water-based paint.
This was my first time trying to use acrylic paints as watercolor as that was all I had. It turned out ok, I think. Sometimes, the best way to understand something is to NOT do it for a decade or two
. True story
