Testing the waters
This one's from the same illustration class as my last post, only this is part of my weekly series rather than an actual assignment. Every week, regardless of whether we have a project due, we have to submit a finished piece that follows the theme of our choosing (has to be the same theme for the whole semester). As I'm sure will come as a surprise to everyone, my theme is soldiers(!), so I present my rendering of a 16th century Polish soldier of the heavy-cavalry class. It's the first time I've worked in watercolours since early high school, and the first time I've felt as though I've had any kind of control over them. Quite excited, I'm going to try to use them whenever I get the chance in the future, and when I do you can be sure to see it here.
