Beasty Knight Watercolor Painting



  • 0_1530072437268_beastie_knight_web.jpg

    I did this watercolor painting and touched it up in photoshop. I am thinking of illustrating my young reader's book using watercolor but I also want to make sure I'm using the computer to make it even better. Other than general feedback, the main reason I'm posting this is that it's been a good long time since I've touched anything up in Photoshop, and I was wondering if there was anything you can think of that I can do it to make it more polished? I already followed Shmoedraws's tutorial, and I just wanted to ask you guys if any of you had any feedback?



  • @bdonoho Looks great, I can't even tell you used photoshop on it, so thats a win right there. I think its a great style for a childrens book.



  • Heya! I don’t think you need to polish this any more. It looks great and you would risk overworking the style if you try to add too much. Looks lovely, really!



  • I agree. Don't overdo the digital or you'll lose all the charm and qualities achieved with the traditional media. Great character by the way!



  • This is really great but I would consider the color of the bear's face as it is really similar to the armor maybe the sword color would be appropriate
