Original Art & Lily Collins

This weekend, when I wasn’t watching the final episodes of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood with my own brother, I was creating art.  I’d purchased a mixed media art pad (6x8in, 15 pages) of Strathmore paper with the intent of making some nice finished pieces for my room to frame.  I decided to test it out with the ever harmful watercolours, and these are my results! ♥

For the first, I used watercolours and pencil crayons interchangeably.  I inked all three with a Faber-Castell brush pen and a Copic multiliner (0.3) for the finer details….  The last two only used watercolours.  References were used for all three, and can be found on google images.

S/W/NS

I’m extremely pleased with the results – I love the lines, especially on the second with the lace details.  I really love the style… it definitely feels like something of my own, and something I could dive further into to create something special for myself.  I wish I could be more capable or risk-taking with epic backgrounds, but I’ll be working on things like adding foreground and backgrounds, creating more dynamic scenes instead of strictly portraits.  I already have a “fan-art” for Brotherhood planned that will be a full scene, too.  Very impressed with myself, I have to say! ☺

I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend – here’s to a great week ahead ♥
