Underwater Intimacies

From the great stock

This was a test.
I switched to a new watercolor paper medium tooth.
And i mixed 3 color pencils brands: Derwent watercolor pencils dry/Albrecht Durer faber castell watercolor pencils dry/Polychromos Faber Castell,in order to get different textures.
I am quite happy with the way it turned!


EDIT: Oooh well if Good Santa got me a DD for xmas present i guess i have been a good girl all year huh?:O_o: :giggle:
A BIG thnx to :iconnatalia-luz: for suggesting and to :iconsamuelraffa: for featuring ;)

This is absolutely stunning work. Congratulations on your daily deviation for this piece and also the work that has gone into this piece. The concept is amazing and it looks absolutely wonderful. I love how you have made this seem so realistic with the shading and colours. You are truly a talented artist and deserve to be selected for the daily deviation on this piece. Thanks for showing and the amazing work you have done here.

This is absolutely outstanding! It looks so realistic, and it is so beautiful. I love the way you used the colors on here, I think all of the colors fit well. The bubbles look so realistic, I could never draw something like that. Her facial features and eyes also look realistic, I love the way her eyes look. The colors suit her well. Everything in this painting just looks so wonderful, it must have token you forever to finish. Once again, I think this is a outstanding price. Well done, and congratulations on the well deserved daily deviation, you really deserved it.

Beautiful!! The colors are wonderful and blended well, as well as giving a realistic underwater scene.. the. Image itself is beautiful and very realistic. You used watercolors very well; your technique is amazing!! She looks amazing, good job!! 8 would also like to add that you have a very good blending technique and you used it and the shading appropriately to give it that realistic and beautiful look. Her left ear though, looks a bit too bent, besides that, nothing negative. Amazing job! The bubbles and lip rings were a nice touch too. They as well look very realistic and nicely done.

That's amazing! Wait, you used watercolor pencils, but you didn't add water, you just kept everything dry O.o?
I have no idea how you did this, but good job :D!

watercolor pencils are a great tool indeed. Its always up to you to add water or not, i didnt add any water here dont think the paper could hold it anyway...i am afraid i am using lately my prismacolor pencils more and more, really love their texture...thank you for the lovely words and the support my friend!
