Art Feature 


Spirit by heikala  Peach by heikala Mermaid tea by heikala

I`ve been keeping an eye on heikala for a while now and I`ve to say that she is such an inspiring artist. Her works are full of whimsical details and magical creatures. It is so much fun to look at her art. You certainly should take a look too. 


Sea princess by pepperin

I`ve to admit that I found pepperin just today, but I instantly got captivated by her playful style and sense for details. Her work just makes me smile and I am looking forward to see more of her work. 


Aomori by Yuyuun  Wander by Yuyuun  Portable light by Yuyuun

When I found Yuyuun on the Deviantart, I literally squealed on the other side of the Laptop. Yuyuun`s style is so adorable and cute. Definately worth a look! 


I Think We Met Once in a Dream by golden-quince

If you havn`t taken a look at golden-quince`s gallery, you definately should. She is an amazing and talented watercolor artist. Her illustrations are colorful, imaginative and playful. A pleasure to look at! 


Rebirth by Uuju Talvikettu by Uuju The Little Mermaid by Uuju

Uuju is another amazing fantasy artist on Deviantart. If you like mystical creatures, her gallery is definately something for you to look at.

Hello :)
Nice to discover your amazing gallery! Very colourful and dynamic!
I have a question burning my lips, feel free to answer it or not of course, and sorry in advance if I am pushing too much:
How about using a nice pure black in your compositions?
I feel like it would give more depth and make your colours look even more intense, you would obtain more stable graphical elements.

This being said, it can also be amazing that there is actually no strong contrast in a piece, it can bring some nice 2D symbolic feeling, like what Mucha could have used, and I know that you play a lot with it and it works great :)
I hope not to be too intrusive here...

Personally I think that black is a pretty hard color to work with when it comes to water colors. It never really turns out right. It gets more muddy than intense. Inking bigger parts turns out kinda messy too. Especially in the scan. I am not really good at adjusting colors at the PC afterwards. I am open for ideas though :)

I use china ink for that. Yes the black from watercolour is hard to work with. You can try to oversaturate a black washing but it is never as cool as what you can get with China ink. The problem (or cool thing) of China ink is that it propagates in wet washings very quickly. So if you have a nice wet surface with shiny colours, wait for it to dry before putting your china ink. I actually like to play with that a lot, I think it gives amazing effects and makes such a great depth! :)
