diary doodles: mirror jou and canon jou

Some watercolour doodles on my hobonichi diary. I thought of filling the blank pages of it with some mirror vs canon concepts. ^_^

I was thinking of scanning, digitally colouring and enhancing them since this is….not presentable to say the least, gah. The hobonichi’s papers are very thin. (bible paper thin as some would say). Despite the tomoe river paper being a high quality paper that can withstand a variety of fountain inks and watercolours, it wrinkles when you watercolour on it.

Oh, and you can see some ink on the background since I’ve written stuff on the pages before and after them.

Ah well….as long as the theme of the comic strip is clear enough for the audience to see, I guess. I don’t want to have to repeat drawing and colouring it, tbh.

This was supposed to be posted in a series of doodles/art dump thing for mirror pupship but I’ll post the rest next time. I’m not really fond of this since the colouring looked…too bright and cartoony.

hmm..needs more texture.

Ah well. ‘Gonna experiment more.

In other news, I’ve been listening/watching King of the Hill stuff on youtube as I work on drawings and commissions.

It’s like a Slice of Life “feel good” series that takes place in Texas. There’s something so charming and nostalgic about the art style and the characters’ personalities. I’ve never been to the South of the US so I’m not sure if their portrayal of southerners are accurate. The characters are mostly right-wing-ish / conservative (Texas is still a majority Republican state from what I’ve googled just now) so it probably is accurate but the series’ humour is good, nonetheless.
