Ah, I wasn't trying to criticize you! I just meant that your watercolors are really gorgeous!! I've always had trouble with the medium myself. Could you possibly give me any tips?

Don’t worry about that gif honey, I was joking <3 I usually reply to any cute ask with either a doodle or a gif. As for your questions, i’ll be serious (for once in my life) and answer them~ 

I don’t know much about it since I just got into it myself, so I don’t think I’m the best one to go for regarding this, but I’ll tell you what I use and think about it~

Dekorima aquarelle block. Lefranc & bourgeois as watercolors. I think i have those brushes too, 3 ones, others are old ones from oil painting.
I lined the draw with a derwent B pen. As for tips hmmmm…

1) Test your color on a different piece of paper (preferably not watercolor paper! Those are expensive, but you’ll see the color clearly on a regular piece of paper- if the color suits what you’re about to draw, fill in the area)
2) Always color lighter and then apply darker colors on top of it. (I think i made a mistake to go for darkest color first PURE BLACK OH GOD NO)
3) Have a piece of cloth or towel or something to soak up the water.- lightly apply to draw if you want to absorb paint/water and make the color lighter. 
4) (I tried to background) I tried so haaaard and got so faaaaaar… ok no but backgrounds are real fun to do! I’d encourage filling up the entire paper with color if you can, it looks more vibrant. 

I have a few more but I don’t know how to put them into word… I’d rather show at a point, but I’m sure nothing I’m saying is new. If you want to know more about watercolor I suggest you try to see what brand is easiest to work with. I’ve personally only worked with my old ones (such material where the labels are torn off i think), and compared to the ones I use now, things go a lot smoother and quicker. Wow how slow was I when I first started to watercolor… anyways, hope this answers your ask! Also- patience is really important. The first watercolors will take a long time to make, but it will slowly become easier the longer you draw! :’D

Thanks for asking and I hope this was helpful!

<b>ELMA IS BACK ON MY DASH!!!</b> I missed seeing your kawaii Yuma pictures!!!

Asked by pharaohbec

YOOOOOOOOO~ I’m still here haha, just lingering on my personal and writing for some prompts! 

I haven’t been as active getting my computer back - sitting down to draw with tablet is a bit more difficult now than before. Also, I want to explore traditional (something I haven’t done in years and wow it feels nostalgic) but there will be more awkward chibi spams in the future <3 I had a cute idea last night and I plan to draw it out soon.

How long did it take to finish your watercolor? (It looks amazing!)

Asked by Anonymous

Hi there and thank you, kind anon! .w./ Ummmmm, I’m not sure. It was probably somewhere around 7-9 hours. I worked two days on it, but I get sidetracked easily when I leave it to dry so, lmao that’s slowness on my part. I’d say 7 to 9 hours~

Au where Tami relentlessly kills Yuma once again. This watercolor took so much patience jfc.

I’ll be watercoloring this soon. This is how it looks for now. I don’t know what I was going for really. Mermaid/dragon/plant hybrid. Basically, let’s puke out flowers and bring them back to life through breath. I’m starting to develop an au around it already and im screaming at my mind already, no. Too many aus.

Anon bby, I’m more than happy to have made you ship sharkbait, come and have a warm bath with the rest of the fandom in our very own tears. Also, as for the cute art, I’m not even the slightest bit sorry.

Some B/W traditional draws because it’s been years since I touched these pens.

I feel like this song defines Yuma and Zexal perfectly and no one will convince me otherwise.

Yeah sure, go for it. You don’t have to give credit unless someone asks or if you just feel like it.
