Using a brush pen isn't nearly as scary as I convinced myself it would be.
I have been meaning to post this for awhile. I switched to watercolor, as it was easier to achieve the lighting affects that I wanted. Thanks @mattramsey @smceccarelli @amberwingart @Leontine @Tyler-Blake for your suggestions and encouragement.
Bobby I'm really sorry about your bad news. I have really enjoyed reading your comments and seeing your art. I think its great that you are not letting this stop you from continuing to learn and grow. I wish you the best and will keep you and your family in my prayers.
@Camomilla the brush pen does take a little getting use to. It looks like you are getting the hang of it though! Filling up pages with just practice lines has really helped me learn some control when using the brush pen. Hang in there, you are already improving.
Love these! My favorite in the first set are 6 and 8. I like how dramatic 6 would be. Like Kevin said if you get the city to read as the emerald city, it would be a great choice. 8 looks like you could do some really fun things with the lighting.
In the second set I like 2 and 5. I really like the angle of the boat in 2. It really draws me in. The only things to be careful of with that composition is the placement of the mast. It could become a distraction, drawing the viewers eye off the page. I really like 5 as well.
I think you have done a great job with these. I hope to see more of them!
