Watercolor Final - Critters by nicholaskole Watercolor Final - Critters by nicholaskole
Well...Finals are coming in! Here's the sum-total of my Watercolor final. We were allowed to do anything we wanted, so I decided to do a set of creature/character designs. These are basically just glorified doodles, really...I just sat down and let them happen...the more I thought about them, the worse they turned out :p
I definitely learned alot about Watercolor through all of em...most importantly that I LIKE watercolor. Like...a lot :)

Anyways, here's the gang...I hope y'all like em...more to come!

Amazing critters Nicholas, I especially love the rhino crit! If you don't mind me asking, did you use hot press or cold press paper for these designs?

Your "Lust" creature has the same arm like think that the chimpanzee creture does.
Sadly that was the first thing I noticed :ashamed:

Wow! Such bright colors, I don't see that too often in watercolors. The blue skies have lovely subtle gradients. (Bottom left would also make a kickin pokemon, if you'll forgive me for saying so.)

Watercolor likes you back! I love when people use them so vibrantly like this... it always makes me sad when people write them off on principle, without experiencing the amazing effects you can create :) The colors are spot-on and the designs are quirky and full of life. I hope you got a good grade on this ;)

Genius. Not only is your watercolor technique impeccable, but the designs and details of each animal are incomparably creative. To say this is an amazing piece of art is an understatement -- I am truly, truly impressed.

I love it. <3
