Another bonus piece of random color tests. I really like these as I’m not paying attention to this page at all while creating my primary doodlewash. This one almost looks […]
Another study from my book. Still using the old Reeves colors for this one and decided to go with water only and no ink. Not the most interesting subject, but […]
