Watercolor wolf by ManiaAdun Watercolor wolf by ManiaAdun
When I was in school I hated watercolors. My teacher wanted me to draw as if I was using acrylics and I couldn't do it. And I hated it. So I started hating watercolors. Until today.
I got some brushes from my mom and so I tested them - and suddenly I noticed that I could use my watercolors the way >I< wanted. And this here is the outcome :)

Reference: [link]

Time: 6 hours

Material: very old and very cheap watercolors, Brushes (size 4 and 6), thick Din A 4 paper

Hope you like it :)

You just can't teach someone art, can you? Eheh, you can explain the basics, but eventually you just make your own style.

Beautiful watercolor.

That is awesome.

I'm trying to get watercolor down myself, but i am struggling. I can make neat blends and washes. Which is great for a sky, but I have trouble making the fur look. Any tips on what you did for fur? Do you use watered down color or is it straight from the tube....if you used tube color. All my stuff looks faded, and I'm kinda thinking it is the colors, but that might be cause I don't want to admit it is the artist lol.

Thank you! I'm not sure I understood everything, you wrote (my english is...lets say its not good :)) I use a very thin brush for the fur and my colors are not in a tube but dried. Is that what watered down means? Haha, I have no clue how its called. All I can say is you need patience and practise - at least that's how I do it :)

By watered down, I meant a wash. For a good example search on youtube "watercolor wash"

And thanks for the reply.
