WATERCOLOR TUTORIAL by TransmissionDream WATERCOLOR TUTORIAL by TransmissionDream
Hello everyone! Here's my first watercolor tutorial! I hope you'll find it useful ^_^ more to come soon!

I USE MANY LAYERS OF WATERCOLOR TO ACHIEVE VIVID COLORS AND REALLY DARK SHADOWS. Once again, it's really important that you wait for one layer to dry before doing another one! Good luck!

Whenever I paint over a drawing done with a mechanical pencil (I use a 0.5 MM btw, I dunno if that's important or not :U), it always ends up smudging all over the place. Anything you'd suggest?
Also, thanks so much for uploading such a great tutorial, I love your art! <3

I might not be TransmissionDream, but I have an idea. It might be that you use too soft of a pencil (like HB or 2B). Try a harder type (like 2H), it will look paler on paper and "imprint" stronger into it, so make sure to sketch with light strokes.

You have a real knack for effectively breaking down the steps. I spotted this in the midst of logging out, but I had a quick look and am adding it to my Diigo acct. for later. Nicely done, thank you! Beth
