Sorry for my English ^^''

[EDIT may 2012]
So much time passed since I made this tutorial! Now I'm studying graphics at Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk (Poland) and I do a bit different things (but still worth seeing!)

Feel free to like my page at facebook [link] or find me at Behance [link] or just follow some of my blogs: illustration [link] or graphic design [link]

Regards from Poland! XOXO

Sorry if i ask, maybe it's my fault but when i use like 290 gr/m^2 i can't paint in layers, if i use more water the paper gets wavy ... in how many layers do you paint?

:iconzmarzlena:
Zmarzlena Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2010  Student General Artist
it depends... sometimes 2, sometimes 30

but i know one easy technique to straighten the paper after painting. you have to spray some water on the other side of your picture, put the paper on desk and cover it by many many books for one day. if your painting is big (bigger than A3) use some paper from newspaper between desk, painting and books... it should look like this: [link]

sable is the word you are looking for. Sable brushes, not bristle. Great work!

a ja mam takie ignoranckie pytanie, jak się po polsku nazywa to masking gum? bo nie chcę prowokować dziwnych spojrzeć w sklepie pytając o gumę maskującą, jeśli nie jest to nazwa powszechnie obowiązująca :P

You can use anything when you start, and brushes are not a huge problem ^^ When I used watercolours for the first time I had only 1 brush and that was enough :D

Thank you for faving my tutorial : )
