Sketch Can't Post

Just thought I'd share this sketch I did of Aragorn, I would be interested to hear your comments.
I can't draw from imagination, but copy film stills, pictures etc.

Recently, I was doing a sketch of an un-used 'Houses of Healing' shot, (primarily for Ioreth), and then decided to take the scary step of adding watercolours!
Here is the work very much in progress... (ignore Athena on the right Laugh)

If anyone has tips for how to build up tone and layers of colour with watercolours, I would be interested to hear them!

Thanks.

Hi Nightingale it may be more apporpriate [In reply to] Can't Post

for you to post your sketches in the "Off Topic" section located on The One Ring Forums. "FanArt" gets a look in but not very many replies to the posts are forthcoming.

I like your sketch of Aragon. He has that "I am not out of the woods yet" look about him but still radiates an aura. Almost like "There's something about...."



Cool

Thank you [In reply to] Can't Post

for your comments. I am glad you like the sketch. Smile

If I really get stuck with this watercolour business, I may well be heading over to off-topic for advice!

No... I don't think posting on Off Topic is advised [In reply to] Can't Post

Fan Art and certain other boards may not get many views or replies to their discussions. But they remain the correct boards for those discussions.

A post of sketches on Off Topic would likely just get moved by an admin to Fan Art.

Correct, on all points. [In reply to] Can't Post

Nightingale, you're posting in the right place. Smile

Nightingale the two posts before mine.... [In reply to] Can't Post

advises you are in the right place so ignore what I said earlier in regards to your post.

By the way I still think your sketch does Aragon justice.
