This weekend I busted out my watercolors, probably for the first time since middle school when I'd paint pictures with my little brother.
It was fun but not terribly successful. I think the colors I mixed make Zaddison look more like some kind of water sprite or woodland fairy which is pretty much the opposite of the little monster I'm going for. Still, it's a start. And once I eliminate all the shades I don't want then the ones that do look good are bound to show up sometime.
I have to say my respect for Jon is growing two sizes too big. The more I work on my stuff, the more I realize how great of an artist he is and how much talent he has to make NPW look so great.
