Frog Watercolor

For the curious, I decided to take pictures as I worked on my latest illustration. First I sketch out my drawing on heavy, mix-media paper. Then I go over my pencils in a water-proof ink, and when it is thoroughly dry, erase the pencil lines. Finally I begin to color the piece, I like to use watercolor pencils. I got Derwent watercolor pencils for Christmas, and I’m really liking how vibrant the colors come out.

Here is the final painting after I scanned it into my computer and Photoshopped it a little.
