@K-Flagg wow this piece is amazing!
Here is my take on overgrown
I got my hands full with Inktober. Besides that, I sketch some thumbnails and try to prepare some painting for Slowember. Hope that I’ll have some time to finish them.
Sorry for not sharing pics. It’s night time here and photos wouldn’t turn out well with my poor lightning.
I had issues with flys sucking of the paint from the paper too when I swatched a new water colour set. I have never seen insects “eating” paints before nor did that happen to me after this event.
It is weird that the insects got into your pallet. What kind of pallet do you use? I have go a Mijello pallet for my gouache paints that can be closed tightly. But I know that some bugs can squeeze trough the tiniest spaces which got me worried a bit. Maybe a plastic bag a seal the pallet away like the others suggest as well could help you.
Of course you should also check how they got into your house at first place. There might be sprays or something to keep all kinds of bugs out of your house.
I’m Sandra from Germany. I have been around here for quite some time actually, but more in the role of the silent reader and never really introduced myself.
I only got back into drawing about two years ago after graduating in Cultural Studies and History. Before and during my time in university I have had some designer jobs for social organisations, real estate agents and the like. I even tried to apply at art schools to become a kidlit illustrator, but then something happened that stoped me from picking up a pencil for years. So I had to went a different road and only did some design jobs every now and then.
But I always missed something in my life - art. It was like starting a new life when I did my first paining after such a long time. Since I haven’t been drawing for years I’m nothing but a beginner, I guess. Looking for advice got me to Will’s Youtube account which lead me here eventually. I hope that I can connect with some fellow artists I can learn from
Yeah, now my introduction become longer than intended. Sorry for that.
(Oh, and while I’m at it: my day job is very busy (school teacher), so I fear I sometimes might be slow at replying. it’s nothing personal, just me being busy at work)
