    Red face ** Watercolour, I'll **

    Hello there! CA

    Welcome to my sketchbook. I'm just an asian teenager who love hand-paint watercolour more than digitalcolour. Well, it's kinda weird in this CA forum, coz everyone painted their heavy-stylish digital conceptart which I cannot do. I use to practice digital colouring for some time, but after a few months, my brother take his wacom back(I've borrowed him). And worse that I'm just student and have no money to buy a new one.

    Then, with just optical mouse, it's hard to paint CG effectively. So I think about one thing. One thing that I have since I've learned to draw, my hands.
    So I practices the traditional painting as I did when I was young since then.I painted them and scanned into computer and adjusted them a little bit with photoshop.

    (end of soap opera )

    I would really appreciate any comment/suggestion/critics or anything~ if you have anything to tell me or to my work, don't hesitate, just dump it down,

    Thanks~!!

    This stuff is awesome

    I especially like that last one, as well as the one with the text and the black outlines

    That is some really beautiful work. I would love to see more. I almost never see anyone that does straight to watercolor images with no under-drawing but you do a great job. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for compliment everyone . But I know that my watercolour have a long journey to really become good. I'll try to paint and post everyday and every comment is valuable for develop my further work.

    (ForScience said that I do my work without under-drawing, but actually it does. But just a little and very soft and I always erase all pencil line after finisher painting to keep unique feel of watercolour.)

    Oh, and this is my latest work, The giant talking to small human? Just inspired by asain mythology and so on. and again, thanks for every comment!

    This one inspired by long-sleeve chinese dancer. Well, I don't know which one is better, the desaturate version or the original bright-colorful version. Any comment anyone?

    An art teacher years ago once told me that watercolor is one of the hardest techniques to master, but the one with the most beautiful results. So, keep practicing!

    Many of the successful digi artists here also paint in oils.
    They demonstrate their traditional painting skills as well
    as their digital skills at the Massive Black Conferences.

    What you are doing is the BEST choice, and if you only
    have smashed berries to paint with, you are still acquiring
    important skills.

    I prefer the lower chroma pieces, but that is a personal choice.
    Love the Miyazaki inspired piece of the children on the grassy hill.

    Keep painting!

    Thanks for compliment! I'll try harder to make better work. This one is inspired by my childhood, pursuing a kite floating in the sky with my dog.

    Ps. oomgawa reminded me how Miyazaki's art beautiful. I'll try to paint more beautifully and emotionally in the next update.

    This one is for Creature of the Week chanllenge! The Ayeaye. I portrayed the family of Ayeaye in this picture. (But, I think I add to much detail on the background...) Comment is appreciate, Thanks everyone.

    Well, as I searching around this forum. It's interesting that most of CA members come from US/ and Europe. I questioned myself "What about great artist in another continent?"
    Asia is sure have many great talent in CG, but I think asian artist didn't expose to the world too much because language issued and different art styles. like me...

    But hey, that just my opinions Take a look at my update and critic somethings if you like them~! Thanks! These are my past CG work.

    very very nice watercolours!
    i really like how you do those without an outline but looking as though they had white lineart.
    you could practice backgrounds, i think this style http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1184985212 would gain a lot with a nice background.

    **UPDATE**
    Right now I'm working as CG artist on the indie game project called "Dreams: Essences of Life". As an artist, I try to bring the unique and quality graphic into the game. And here's are my WIP of some cutscreen(It's intro screen).

    Any comment?
