Skye--21--Richmond, VA:
A casual blog of my art, filled with school work, panic, personal art, works in progress and information!

wabagoo asked: I see you're using black gouache! I'm curious, is there any particular reason why you use it rather than straight up ink?


Ah, yes, actually! I’ve found that black gouache produces much better results when laying down flat areas of black. If mixed properly and allowed to dry, there aren’t any issues with overlapping brushstrokes/thicknesses of paint.  Also, it isn’t absorbed as much as ink is into the paper because of its composition, leaving a thick opaque layer of pigment on the papers surface. This provides a very solid, matte black that absorbs the most light and is great for pieces that you want a lot of contrast in!! Woo! 
(so for this project, which is a celestial map illustration, it’s perfect ^-^ )

Anonymous asked: your cubist self-portraits, while not cubist, are AWESOME!


Hahaha Oy yeah I know they’re not actually cubist, it was just assigned after we talked about cubism and abstraction and whatnot! Also thank you very much ^-^
