Nothing of Cities by Laitma Nothing of Cities by Laitma
This wasn't done on proper watercolor paper but just in my sketchbook so it's a little rough, but still, I rather like how the colors turned out-!  Emoji24 by Emoji-icon  
I also picked up my nib pen and ink to ink this, so that was a lot of fun too, I'm trying to learn how to love it and use it more because microns/felt-tipped pens are so prone to fading/lifting when I erase out the pencil, this is actually faster in the long run.  Here's the lineart only for anyone who wants to see, it's a bit sloppy but a lot of fun!

Anyway, just a doodle of Sariel, my sweet little killer hahahahaha.  :heart:

Whoa jesus this looks so REAL
I know there's a lot to look at but for some reason my eyes are drawn to the rock with the cracks and lovely details on it and Sariel's shoe
What a real-looking shoe how dare you

Yeah no kidding you like how the colors turned out! I like how they turned out too!!
They look - for lack of a better word - very real :3
Really the only negative thing I could say is the perspective on the stairs - AND I KNOW THAT IS VERY POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK but y'know sometimes I wonder if you tire of tear-filled praise and want some mean words in your diet as well

I'm sure I could have phrased that better oh well

Ahahahahahaha, ohmygosh man your comments are the absolute best, no I love them~ XD
And naw I noticed the stairs about the time I was halfway done inking them LMAO don't you hate how some things look fine in sketch-form but then when you're done you're like... "waaait..." so yeah, ugh perspective is still hard... but no I don't mind crit at all, it's always good to get a fresh eye on things and see what people notice, so by all means-!!  Thank you!  :blowkiss:

And hahaha no lie several years ago I spent like. at least half a semester in this one discussion-based class drawing the shoes of all the other classmates sitting around me (we sat in a circle haha) so I GOT A BIT OF EXPERIENCE ON DRAWIN' SHOES... it's all practice, man!  o:  Thank you though, aaahhhh I'm so happy that the details can be called "realistic", that's the highest praise for me~!  :blush:

It helps to plan out colors ahead of time so you can keep that feeling, I'm sure you can do it too with practice~!  C:
