Again, this piece is very much inspired by Hayao Miyazaki
Enjoy!

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-03-29
Wake Me If You're There; tea and watercolor illustration from Calmality ( Suggested by EeNii and Featured by jane-beata )
:iconsupergal12000:
The colors are so perfectly balanced with enough variety that its a very well rounded piece. The sharp ink stands out and the technique used with the folds of the blankets melded with the idea of some form of danger or mystery is wonderful and transparent. Over all the simple detail really shows the handmade feel of the water color that is sometimes lost in the ultimate need to stay in the lines at all cost- I find the rough texture perfect coupled with the theme of the piece. A very well watercolor I enjoy to the fullest ^o^ <3

Heh, pretty cool. The mask makes me think of a Hollow mask from Bleach.

How did you include tea in this painting? And the black lines, did you do them with ink?
Anyway, this looks awesome! This could be very good material for a Japanese storybook or something.

Thank you for the wonderful comment! The black lines are micron pen and everything in the sepia tone is painted in tea. The extra color is watercolor. I can't use colored tea because they all fade to brown eventually. Hope that answers your question! :heart:
