FLEETING


My patience is FLEETING when trying to learn a new trick on Photoshop. I was doing some character sketches to submit for approval and decided to try out a looser style in both line work and color. I found a tutorial online that showed how to add texture to the image. This is supposed to have a watercolor paper texture in it. I don't know that it will show up here. And not sure how it would show up in printing. I also experimented with brushes a bit, making the color less opaque so it builds up like watercolor. Anyway... it's all an experiment and kind of fun and different while it lasted... but time is FLEETING and I gotta run...

So a post-n-run, eh?

Yeah, almost at the same time! Funny!

Like your experimentation with PS. Can't say I can see the texture but some of the blending looks like WC (where it's on the characters) and that's a plus. Thanks for sharing your practice stuff!
