the Rat has a Plan by samuel123 the Rat has a Plan by samuel123
MR rat is a cunning creature, He will go to extreme lengths to gain entry into your home, don't underestimate him ;)

And if you haven't been down to the shed in a while, maybe you should check it's not being used as a base for ratty operations...

you have been warned

just to clarify this is NOT OTTER .. just in case anyone is concerned she's lots rather a lot of weight and changed her tail ;)

I was just experimenting with watercolours again and this happened, so I thought I would upload it :)

yup , light sources are integral to all my work really. It's actually really annoying .. I HAVE to have a definate light source in my pictures to make them look good ... i've tried really well lit scenes (which sometimes you obviously will have to do) and my pics just look ... well much worse :)
so yay lightsources...
..but grrr light sources too .. :)

I KNEW IT. I knew he was living there, among the cardboard boxes and bird cages in my shed, plotting and planning to gain access to my home in order to live among the cardboard boxes and bird cages that are in my house!

i have a question regarding your technique. you said that here you wanted to experiment with watercolors yet this is submitted as Digital Art. so is this a painting to which you added light effects in Photoshop or something?

anyway, i like the dramatic way in which light falls on the Rat. it looks like he's just had an epiphany :giggle:
Reply
:iconsamuel123:
samuel123 Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
hehe love the idea of the rat and the epiphany !! good idea ;)

umm yeah it is a watercolor originally but like you said, I then add lighting and shadow in photoshop. Actually I also add a whole new layer of colour in photoshop too !! ( which sometimes seems a bit of a waste of time ) but if i don''t do all these stages the pictures just don't look as good.

I wish I had a style that was really fast to do, I can't keep up with all the things I want to draw in my head !!
