Blaster and Steeljaw by The-Starhorse Blaster and Steeljaw by The-Starhorse
I don't think Blaster's scarf is long for this world. ;) Blaster and his kitty. :love:

Ugh, it's so hot and buggy out, I thought I'd get a start on some winter scenes. Also, I haven't painted in a month, so I thought I'd get some practice in. Watercolor + ink.

How cute! I like watercolor works. And Steeljaw looks so cute batting at Blaster's scarf there. ^^
How did you make the white "snow" spots?

Such a fun scene! That poor scarf. :D I love the different colors in the sky.
I love painting with watercolors, so if you don't mind me asking a technical question: how did you get the white spatter for the snow? My first guess would be that maybe you splattered masking fluid then just rubbed it off once you got the sky painted. Did you use a different technique?

Aw, thanks. :heart: Yep, I used masking fluid. I spattered it on -- literally just threw it at the paper. Then I softened a few of the dots after I removed the fluid, to give it that snowy blur. Hope that helps. :)

Heh. Reminds me of last winter. When chasing the dog around, I noticed that our cat Smokey was jumping from footprint to footprint to get around in the snow.

Having never seen the old show and these characters, I can't say anything other than that I can see this kind of thing happening, whether to cartoon characters or real people. That, and Steeljaw looks like our other cat Seppy.

Snow makes me feel cool and Steeljaw makes me squee. So cute. He just needs to grab a thread and it's good-bye scarf.

This is really lovely. I love the poses, Blaster strolling so happily while Steeljaw bats curiously at the scarf :) I ADORE how the scarf itself looks, the inraveling threads just look amazing! The falling snow and the somewhat murky background enhance the scene and it's just really nice X3
