SoB, er.. Sister of Battle
Ah, just a quick sketchbook gouache painting I did back when the county fair was going on. There were some stretches were I was able to get some serious drawing in. And yeah, I had to dig this out of a sketchbook I kept while I was running around. The sketchbook in question was tucked away in a box with all of my other summer gear. Scandal! The scan doesn't show the intricate sheen that the metallic makers lent, but the colors are pretty accurate.
As for my gouache technique here... I should have been a little bit thicker with my paint application. I think the face is the only place where I really leveraged the advantage that the medium has over water color.
I'm curious, about the nature of digital medium. How reliable is a blog? Will this be around like a paper record, or will all of this dissolve with the advent of zero point computers. Who backs up the web?
In other news, I've got a cold. Ewww.
