Even though robots are most often associated with high technology, I wanted to create a playful and happy card. That's why my coloring doesn't have any of the grays or maybe blues that you would usually associate with a robot.
As a coloring medium I used my Stabilo pens. I know that you have seen me use these pens so far to achieve a very intense coloring, but you can use them perfectly as a watercolor medium.
I simply scribbled the color onto an acrylic block (you can use any piece of plastic or acetate as well) and then picked it up with a damp watercolor brush. I worked in multiple layers to slowly build up the color because I wanted to be sure to have proper highlights on my robot. I also found that the Stabilo pens, when used as a watercolor, can give very smooth and perfect blending.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a very happy day!
