Redraw from Last Year

edit: damn i ended up typing archers instead of arches lmao.

I tested a new watercolour paper, Baohong, and it seemed quite decent especially with the blending. Comparable to Arches apparently according to some people but I’ve never tried the latter so I don’t know if it’s true, lol. (Isn’t Arches like the Rolls Royce of watercolour paper?)

But it’s affordable for like, a 100% cotton watercolour paper and I need all the practice sheets since I’m a total amateur with this media. :’D

(gods, where were all these good, quality affordable brands when I was young? lol.

One reason why I didn’t do watercolours as a kid aside from having barely any art class in my school’s curriculum was due to how expensive they were around me when I was a broke af student.)

It’s a redraw of a little smiling tkb from last year.

The texture is quite rough. ‘Could be because it’s cold press but also due to the lighting..

Anyway, I scanned it and enhanced the colours slightly to make some of ’em pop.

My tablet also broke a few hours ago. ugh.

I’m extremely frustrated since it’s been with me for almost a decade and it just..doesn’t work anymore all of a sudden. :/
