HUGZ by saraquarelle HUGZ by saraquarelle
This is a gift for a very good friend, a portrait of his Maine Coon Kyo.
This is also a tribute to the work of Marcelo Daldoce, I really love his work ! [link] [link]

This is a 40 x 30 cm painting, a lot of watercolor, a little bit of colorpencil, and some accident of my roof, last week we had a storm here in France, with a lot of rain, and obviously I had a hole in my roof, just where I put this painting to dry...


EDIT : you can now buy it as a print \o/ yay !

I like watercolor and worked as an art director and graphics for
years. This piece caught my eye is someone else's FAVES. A appreciate
all the detail work that went into this...and it certainly deserves a DD!

Congrats..

"Some accident of your roof" doesn't look too bad to me! ^^

This poster is pure genius! I love it! It could totally be the cover of Cat Lover's Digest or whatever that magazine is. :|

Un grand bravo pour la DD, en toute franchise, tu la mérites amplement ! Je ne sais pas si j'avais déjà commenté ce dessin, en tout cas il est déjà dans mes fav'. Je suis totalement fan de cette présentation et de ces couleurs. Tu manies vraiment bien les compo' avec la typographie. Sans parler de ta technique pour dessiner les animaux qui est admirable. Oui, je t'admire *_______*

When you say you had a leak...did all of that awesome texturing come out by accident?
Reply
:iconsaraquarelle:
saraquarelle Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
No ^^ I made drops, then let it dry, then... LEAAAAAAAK, and I tried to mask what I can, and use the rest of it...
The result of the leak is yellowish, my drops were more orange...

This looks amazing! I love the old time feel, and I'm AMAZED at the typography! How to you get such clean lines with water colour? XD How did you do the typography?
Reply
:iconsaraquarelle:
saraquarelle Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
For the typography I first composed them on Photosh*p, then print, then drawing them with transparence on my final paper. I paint very cleanely because I'm very cautious, and I paint with a very little brush ^^
