Artist's Toolbox: Watercolor equipment II
✿   Watercolor Equipment II - Additional Tools In the first week of Artist's Toolbox, we discussed basic Watercolor Equipment such as paper, brushes and paints. Second week's article presents additional tools, equipment that some artists use to enhance their watercolor creations or just for the fun of it, however none of them is crucial to create a watercolor painting. I divided these tools into two categories - those used to Create Highlights and those used to Create Textures. Bottom part of this article belongs to our watercolorists and their Personal Experience regarding additional tools. 1. Creating Highlights ✐ Masking

:iconbummiesplz: Getting to know Patrick a little bit more! :iconbummiesplz:



:star: How did you first find deviantART? What made you stay?

I first found DA when a fan of my art said "hey you should check out DeviantART, make an account".. So I checked it out and I had no idea how good the setup and idea of the site was! I instantly fell in love with DA!


:star: What do you enjoy drawing the most: Fan Art or Original Art? Why?

I really love drawing Fan Art more! I think because already I will have a huge amount of motivation for the picture since I'm a fan of whatever I'll be drawing! It's what keeps me going and it's what I do best I think ;)


:star: What are your aspirations and ambitions in the long run?

I really want to do cover art for console games, kind of like the Grand Theft Auto series! GTA plays a huge part in my art, because it gives me so much inspiration to what I want in life! I look at the boxart and think "I could do that someday".


:star: What made you start drawing? What made you get into art more seriously?

What made me start drawing was just cartoons I watched on TV, I started when I was about 5 years old. As the years passed I improved more and more because my friends would enjoy what I did and it gave me motivation.
What made me get into serious art was when I hit college, I was a huge gamer and loved the artwork for the Grand Theft Auto series, as I was obsessed with Vice City I just wanted to make my own art in that style. So I used the college computers to try doing digital art, then it went from there ;)


:star: What would you do if you were physically unable to draw?

AAAAW NO!!! I would seriously hate life! Because my artwork is the only real, pure, happy thing in my life right now! It's my way of expressing myself. Plus it's just fun too ;)


:star: What other hobbies do you have?

I love doing Graphic Design, I actually do it for a living. Designing things like magazine covers, logo design, banners..
I'm a huge gamer, I play PS3 and Xbox 360, usually when I get some free time.
I love going to the gym, keeping healthy.
And I'm also a bit of a party animal haha, I don't know if you could call that a hobbie!


:star: Anything else you'd like to share with us?

I really want to say a HUGE THANKS!!! To all the fans who have supported me. I actually wouldn't be doing any art here on DA if I didn't have people who appreciated it and enjoy what I do. I always look forward to seeing what people have to say, it really helps me improve, so thanks :woohoo:

DeviantART has actually made my life. Seriously!




:iconbackhug: Thank you for everything, Patrick! Congrats! :clap:

Congrats, Patrick Brown! Your art inspires me to keep drawing since I've been more into writing lately, and this interview is really inspiring as well. I'm the same way: I hit college and knew exactly what I wanted to do with my writing. before that it was all fanfictions! Thanks for the inspiration and AMAZING art!

Great choice!! He's an awsome artist - I just discovered him a week ago and have already faved some of his stuff! I like how he keeps his own style throughout all of his fanart. That gives a cool new perspective to the characters.

Congrats Patty! I used to live with Patrick for a few years in Tasmania. The man is a genius when it comes to digital art, and one of the best guys you'll ever meet!
I still remember when San Andreas came out, the guy was glued to his TV for months, then when he knew the game back to front, he was glued to his computer making fan art of the game.
No one deserves this more! KEEP IT UP YOU LEGEND!
