So, De has been asking me if I have been thinking more about creating something for Sexual Assault Awareness Month coming up in April. It’s been tough trying to find something I want to show off (even though my name will not be anywhere on the piece). I’ve been throwing a few ideas around in my head, and none really “worked” until this one. The execution of it is a bit off though, so I will be re-doing the piece. It’s just the “practice” version of the image I will give to her to put up in their little display:
I had wanted to do the background in a red chalk, but the one I used was not covering correctly. I tried to draw over it with the watercolor pencil, but it did not cover correctly over the chalk… There’s also some issues with the faces on both characters, so it’s just going to be a complete re-do. I really need to work on my coloring technique too. I wish I could figure it out better on my own, but I suck at it. I think my drawing skills are coming back with practice though. Overall, I’m happy with this piece, it’s just little things that are not working correctly. I think I will also stick to dry media for the coloring this time. Any time I use water or something wet, it really warps the drawing. If I had the correct paper for the watercolors things would look better.
