After a long gap, another ACEO
So when I wanted to do a little ACEO, a bird seemed the perfect subject. Drawing him was no problem, but I was still stuck on the idea of creating a "tinted drawing." In the end, I slapped so many different media onto this little piece, I don't really know what to call it. There's pencil, colored pencil, watercolor pencil applied dry then wet with a brush, watercolor applied to a dampened surface, and, finally, ink! Enough already! But, despite all the fussing, I'm happy with the look I eventually achieved, especially the coloration on his back.
