As all the Christmas commissions have been sent of ready to meet their new owners I’ve spent this weekend working on a gift for the other half, and a personal piece that I’ve been itching to do for a while now. The gift, I’m afraid, I’ll have to refrain from showing you until after Christmas Day as he may stumble across it here (if you’re reading, go away, go play your games, shoo shoo!), although I’m both apprehensive and excited to reveal that when the time is right! Not what I’d usually do, not even close, but it was a lot of fun anyway. The personal piece, however, I can reveal to you in all it’s pixellated, poorly lit phone pic glory! But everyone loves a good WIP photo, right?
I know rainbow zebra’s is hardly a daring step of creativity, but the idea sat in my head, refusing to stop gnawing away at my brain cells until I submitted myself to it. And so, I begin the Zebro. Unfortunately I’m suffering a case of THE CLAW in my right hand from all the frantic detail work done on the other half’s gift, so poor Zebro will have to wait until tomorrow for me to do any more work on him. But I have some pretty snazzy thoughts for the colour scheme, and looking forward to revealing them!
Materials here are my good old magical squishy gouache tubes, and Langton hot pressed watercolour paper, which is definitely one of my favourites.
