Psylocke Blast Watercolor - Benes - Egli by SurfTiki Psylocke Blast Watercolor - Benes - Egli by SurfTiki
Psylocke with finished watercolors. Never thought of a good background so its white for now...
I penciled in the sash, inked it and colored it.

Pencils by Ed Benes :iconedbenes:
Orginal [link]

Ink and color by Surftiki :iconsurftiki:
Inked version [link]

This is inked on a 11x14" piece of watercolor paper cold press (means it has a rough or toothy surface), Brush inked with a #2 oval wash and Bombay india black ink (tho the clouds have a new thing i learned, thumb ining). Printed lines were made blue lines by 'color varasions' in photoshop.
Watercolored with Holbien, M. Gramham and MaimeriBlue. Usein a Winsor & Newton 3mm/6mm chesel Cirrus series and a #0 One storke by Winsor&Newton.

Psylocke is (C) Marvel.

Thanks, my style of watercolors isnt the usual, i mix english with french styleing Meaning i leave my under drawing in and paint more wet in to dry and build up to a heavy dark or thinnly for a transparent look.
Glad you enjoyed it!

Great job. I have always found the more white you put in a colored piece the more dynamic it is. My only suggestion is to incorporate more reflective colors. Much like you did with the yellow on leg, torso and arm from the explosion. Her blade which glows pink should equally reflect on her as well. i.e. Arm, torso, shoulder, chin, face and even hair.

I'm very glad you suggested the rubble being grey.
I'm not sure on the BG yet for it, i might do a Torri/shrine walkway or a spalash of color but im not sure.
I think you said Kirby Crackle before right.....

Yeah thats a good way to say it, its a wounderful color to use.
Sort of like the copics alot of people use but one tube is less than a pen and it does all the cool greys.

What is the brand you use? for watercolor?
Reply
:iconsurftiki:
SurfTiki Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Well the paper is usally Sathmore 400 series watercolor paper(cotton is better but way more expensive, Fabriano or Cartera Magnani), for the paints i use anything from MaimeriBlu, Holbin, M.Graham, Daniel Smith to Grumbacher Academy and Windsor Newton Cottoman series. the 1st 4 are quite pricey but work amazingly well. the last are cheaper student grade but get the job done.
For brushes i use a series no longer made by Windsor Newton 'Cirrus' Kolinsky Sable, and a newer 'One Stroke' same brand and hair just new and being made. The Kolinsky sable holds the perfect amount of water and paint for watercoloring, tho a squirrl brush isnt bad either but can be a bit floppy.
