The way you do your eyes is just amazing! I can never manage to get my eyes looking the way I want them, no matter how hard I try. Wonderful work.

Such a strong and beautiful blend of complementary colors! The red and green look really great with the mix of light and dark; it helps ease the tension (of sorts?) between the colors without removing from their vibrancy.

This is so haunting it's beautiful. The small details and contrast of the red and green are so amazing and so un-Christmas like! XD Christmas is always something I want to avoid when using the colors red and green to accentuate each other in terms of beautiful and it always regrettably ends up turning out like Christmas. >.<
But all of the hidden details and empty spaces are really amazing and keep me looking. So many layers and I feel like I'm actually inside your epic color theory design world mind. Hahah great job once again!

Thanks dear, I'm so relieved to know it is not christmassy like, I always hesitate too when using red green combos, it's fun but always so seasonal. *w*

I did a light light wash of the 2 colours first, and then painted over it. There weren't a lot of actual "mixing" of the green and red. :3

Ah cool. And I suppose you let each dry in between? I really want try messing around with watercolors sometime, but I'm really no good with any sort of paints. DX

It just takes a bit of practice is all~~8)
Watercolour is pretty forgiving I think.^^
And yep, I actually blow dry it between each layer to hasten the process.

You can do a light sketch with a 2H or H pencil, and then make a watercolour wash on top of it, which will takeaway the darkness of the pencil. :)
