I wanted to get some color on her today because tomorrow is going to be rough. There are outside forces at work, trying to derail my 365 day goal. More about that tomorrow, I hope.
Something I completely forgot about when I started this: I don't have everything I need for airbrushing. I usually rent a CO2 tank, hook up a regulator I have and I'm on my way. But since moving I just never got around to renting a tank. So I am doing this by hand and brush. Normally I spray the colors, just kind of blocking them in. I don't use any guides so the color tends to overspray in other areas. I like that. I am using gouache as my medium of choice here. Gouache is an opaque watercolor. And unlike acrylic, I can remove color with water and a brush or paper towel. Very important to the process I use. Also important, the paint is still transparent enough for the pencils to show through. This is just the first layer of paint for her skin. There will be a few more layers to build up color to where I want it. We still have a ways to go. I will see if I can shoot some photos to go along with this too.
Since I have never done a tutorial and because for the most part I am self taught, I will probably miss an explanation or two. If you have questions, just shoot them to me and I will try to come up with an answer. :)
