Yeah, I thought of acrylics because they are a tad bit brighter, but watercolors are just easier. I think I will. My trip is just an overnight trip, so I'm heading back later today, and "going for it" :)

I by no means call myself a painter, since I rarely use it because I am so impatient. I have issues waiting for the paint to dry before I can move on to the next step XD'' S' why me+markers=yes.

But I have experimented a little ;D

Thick paper is definitely good. The paper will curl and bubble up otherwise, though sometimes I've had even thicker stuff curl up from the water I put on it. I find it easier to use painter's tape or masking tape or something to tape the paper down to a hard flat surface, which helps keep it from curling up. Won't always stop the 'bubbling,' but I've also pressed my watercolored pieces in or under a heavy book and left it there for a while to flatten out.

I've also used acrylics like watercolor - I really water them down. I also mix acrylic and watercolor together, because I'm a weirdo and defy the logic of not intermixing them XD WOOOOOT!


Dunno if that'll help you any, but I'd say go for it and experiment - It wouldn't be a bad idea to try painting on paper without a drawing on it, so then you can see how it'll react and whatnot.


Feng:

FINALLY. HERE. TAKE ITTTTT. *Flails*

I hope that worked ._.'' I attached the picture of Barti. Guess we'll find out! xD I did take some pictures of Shark, but they turned out horrible. The camera wasn't liking it when he moved, so they'd be all blurry.

Arrow, it's beautiful! You are just as talented ad Feng & a lot of the other artist on here. You all make me SO jealous, but then again I can sit back and enjoy the beauty you all produce without all the hair pulling, grumbling, and crumpled bits of paper you have to go through. :)

Feng, as always, your work leaves me speechless. Don't ever give up your hobby. Life has a habit of becoming to busy for hobbies, but for you to give up art would be such a waste of talent. I understand not making a hobby a career (it can loose a lot of it's pleasure then), but make sure you never stop drawing. And congrats again on your graduation. Glad it went well for you.

Could you also add Catullus to the list? I would love a picture of him!
