Sometimes when working on a commission or gift art for someone, I'll get a really neat idea and won't be able to let it go until I've utilized it in my personal work.
Recently I've done a couple pieces that utilize concentrated liquid watercolors to make a mottled nighttime sky in conjunction with masking areas of color and spraying white ink with a toothbrush. I really liked how those pieces turned out, and wanted to do a seasonal piece with Kara. Usually I don't get to do finished seasonal drawings, since my schedule frees up after the holiday has passed, but I managed to knock this one out somewhat early.
Blick Watercolor Paper (not my favorite, but I paid for it, so I'm going to use it)
Half Pan watercolors, mostly Winsor&Newton, but some Van Dyke in there

7 Inch Kara Halloween Watercolor
Vigilante comic artist, illustrator, and comic craft blogger at www.nattosoup.blogspot.com. I have an MFA from SCAD in Sequential Art, which means I'm highly educated in the art of drawing funny picture books. I specialize in comics aimed at young girls, and enjoy the finer things in life- seinen manga, whiney autobio graphic novels, and science fiction.
