Um, for this kind of thing it's a multi-stage process:
- inked background in waterfast ink - layer of watercolour pencils - second layer watercolour pencils - refining with colour pencils - sometimes adding acrylic highlights (rare) - re-inking the lines that have vividity due to this process - adding iridescent, or metallic paint for highlights
Very very beautiful. I love the expressions of all three wolves, the wonderful details (in the sky and fur especially!), the colors, and the straightforward composition. Perhaps one of my favorites (I have a liking to wolves anyway ) Love it!
