Buffy Commission

Finishing up some loose ends around the studio and I polished off this commission today in about 4 hours or so in water color, while watching the Live-8 concert. I owed this guy the commission for over 2 years...cause I can't get into Buffy...so I couldn't figure out what to do...I messed up the other girl a bit cause I didn't do a very good drawing there, it was not worked out well enough, but I'm overall happy with it. I was thinking of the way Jack Davis had fun with his watercolor illos, and Frazetta too....

vHoly shit, that looks cool. Did you do that all in watercolor? If you did, even better for you. Most of the time when I think of watercolor, little kids splashing paint on paper and making a blurry mess of colors is what comes to mind.
Even if you are better at painting, watercolor can be pretty messy, and too much water can make the paper crinkle. And I especially liked the details on the werewolf's face. I would be amazed to find out you did that in watercolor too.

Thanks SPJ..and yes its all on watercolor. The thing with watercolor is to use good watercolor paper, then the paper won't wrinkle.

Mike that is awesome! Probably the best art i've seen you post on the blog since i joined it.

I love the watercolors, it has a definate old-school technique to it. I can't pinpoint exactly what it reminds me off.

t mcg--thanks! I had such a hard time coming up with an idea, then BOOM! it happened. I'll try the same technique on some other characters soon.
