Emergence by Kiki-Tayler Emergence by Kiki-Tayler
So um... Hey look! I drew/painted this!
The concept for the piece came from something Jessica said. She works with colored pencil and watercolor a lot (her gallery is amazing >> :iconjessicamdouglas: ) and she's teaching me how to make it go. One of the things she taught me is how the colored pencil, done right, will always stand out from the watercolor. She phrased it as "the colored pencil will come forward."
I heard this and was all "huh. Let's play with that!"
So I did.

...
Tada!

This is actually a very interesting piece. It's somewhere between crackelure, water and plain ghostiness. I like how the "cracks" follow the shapes and patterns of the drawing - so much more interesting than if it had been a clear overlay.
There are a few things off - her nose (and somewhat lips), but overall it's a very interesting drawing with beautiful colours. I love it! :D

The colored pencil will always come forward? That really depends on how you use the colored pencil. I did an art project LINK that transitioned between graphite, colored pencil, and watercolor, and the watercolors stand out more. *shrug* But anyway, this turned out well! It's kind of abstract with the shattered smoky look.

The colored pencils will stand out more if you layer them and make them feel more solid. Same with the graphie...maybe. As it the picture is still gorgeous. ^^
