Prowl: Quiet Moment by The-Starhorse Prowl: Quiet Moment by The-Starhorse
Prowl, reading one of his infamous data pads. For once though, instead of working, he's looking through some personal matters. A letter? Maybe. He didn't say.

I saw this the other day, and wanted to try my own backlit-window-thingy. So I got this idea from shel-yang's picture, and claim no originality for this. I'm finding it's helpful for me to try to copy another artist's basic idea for practice, since that helps me to understand what makes a good layout, how to construct values, etc. So this really is just something for practice.

Watercolor + mech pencil + megasuck scanner. Plus Prowl. :heart: :)

He just seemed so relaxed, like it was just a nice casual day. We all need days like that, Prowl especially.

Thank you. :) Prowl deserves a moment to relax once in a while. Which he probably gets every decade or so, whether he needs it or not...;)

very nice
i love water color, but i always use charcoal.
let Prowl know that my favorite pass time is also reading.
getting lost in your own world or the book, and forgetting about everything around you with out ever leaving your bed

I've wanted to try charcoals, but I'm pretty well addicted to these watercolors. And I'll let him know. :)

hehe Thanks
the one good thing about charcoals is you can erase mistakes, but advice if you do try it, use pencil first to outline everything, lines or shapes, and then use the charcoal.
once done with it, your can spary it with a protective fixitive or varnish spray to prevent it from smearing. spray it outside lol.

What a beautiful little smile he has.Perhaps reading a letter from Bluestreak, or an old friend? Or perhaps just remembering an old or lost friend and something that they did together.

A...letter from Bluestreak? I think you know a different Prowl than I know. Because the Prowl I know has a fairly dim view of the Autobot chatterbox. :)
