Final for my Illustration Tarot Card project... The Moon Card. I'm sick of looking at it so figured it was time to stop and post it >>;

...I find it alittle dumb that they have a mixed media category, but then at the end you had to pick whether the piece is digital or traditional... don't that defeat the purpose of having a MIXED MEDIA category? >_< (can you tell I'm not in a good mood?) Anyways... laid down base colors and textures with watercolors, and then did the details and corrections in ps.

I was also sick of my teacher telling me to not be so monochromatic with my colors... she was right of course, but I was still sick of it xD; and... I might have gone abit over broad to prove her wrong :shrug: You can be the judge of that.

For alittle more info on this character and project, go here [link] that's also the wip, so see the difference x3

Behh..... Will have the Sun up this weekend.... maybe... >>;

This site is full of little things like that that annoy me, but I stay because there are so many wonderful artists here. I also hate it when they change a feature that used to be free to subscriber-only. They should make new features for subscribers, not take existing ones away from every one else.

I love the concept, and I think the colours suit the moon theme. When things are seen in moonlight, they are naturally very monochromatic. Colours are nice, but they shouldn't interfere with the theme and what the artist wants to portray.

Woaaaah, that is gorgeous. :O
Love the way you coloured that, what kind of style did you use? Or rather, HOW did you colour it?

x3 thank you! Welllll... first I started on watercolor, and used paint drops and salt to get the textures I wanted. Then (after I realized I totally couldn't do what I wanted in watercolor anymore xD; ) I scanned it and started coloring and detailing in ps, and I used low opacity layering and brush options like wet edges and textures and scattering, and brush patterns that were splotchy shaped to match the watercolor feel. Annnnnd, that's about it xD I just kept tinkering with it till I was happy =)
