Wow... This is absolutely astounding. You captured the emotion and determination in the moment. I absolutely adore this not only because of my love of the American Revolution but because it is most definitely quality work.
Thanks fifth! I appreciate your taking a look and leaving a comment! It is especially nice to hear such nice words from such an accomplished artist such as yourself!
Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you! I have been in the process of moving from Cali to Florida over the last couple of weeks. I don't actually have my computer here yet, but I bought a little netbook so I could at least have internet access!
Oh well, you're right, such is life sometimes - at least you finally managed to move somehow!
Watercolour crayons can be used just like normal crayons - and after drawing you can use water on them, which makes the colours disperse - this way the image will look smoother, and you can also mix colours quite well. Don't know, maybe colours like that don't even exist in the USA - there is a German company called FABER CASTELL, which produces them. I love these crayons.
Thanks for taking a look and leaving a comment! I appreciate the support! So I took a look at your gallery and had a question. It seems to me you have some really awesome pieces - but it looks like the camera/scanner kind of messes with the color some. Do you not color adjust any of the art that you post?
It's not fractal art, unfortunately. I've been trying to do fractals with a program called Apophysis 7, but it's too complicated for me.
The stuff I do is called abstract. I do that in Photoshop with the different filter effects. Here's a tutorial on how I did most of mine [link] There's a lot of tutorials for Abstract Art on Youtube. I wouldn't know how to do it if you have anything other than photoshop.
