I was working on a gem... and I just didn't feel like it was getting the depth and the roundness that I wanted...
It seemed that no matter how much shading I did... it just didn't pop the way I wanted it to. So... I asked some people on Facebook for suggestions and I went back and coloured in the piece to see if I could achieve what I was hoping for.
I think I kinda sorta achieved it.
So remember... if at first it doesn't look like you want it to... set it aside. Give it a day. And then go back and see what you can do to change it!
Today I was playing with a piece that I watercoloured when Josh was here. I used a lot of different thicknesses of pens here (Copic Multiliners). I like the effect.
