I made a little full pan’s worth test batch of manganese blue watercolor tonight! I gotta wait and see how it sets, but I THINK I got the binder/pigment ratios spot on on the first go! It painted out BEAUTIFULLY so far, even nicer than the old holbein one I have in my palette, which was the best one you could get in watercolor when it was still available. Photos of the paint outs, because the granulation that happens with this color is exactly why the hues that replaced it just don’t cut it.
In one of the more ill advised and ridiculous ways I’ve opted to waste my time today, I painted my Pokémon go plus. Instead of working on comic pages, like an idiot 🙄 some day I’ll get it a better wrist band that actually suits me, until then this is at least better for me than the one it comes with.
Last update on my palette, since I got the hinges and lid attached, so it’s OFFICIALLY FINISHED! Wanted to show comparisons of old vs new! The old store bought one is my gouache palette. The deal with making this thing was ultimately comfort. I loved how much paint the old one held, but no matter how I oriented it there was something that was too far away in my limited space for my limited body and it was JUST enough of an inconvenience to break up workflow!
Page page page, page page page. Another quiet one this week, for it’s a quiet chapter (that is finally coming to its end in a couple of weeks aaaaaah). http://blancocomic.com
Let’s see if I can post the new page today since I couldn’t yesterday. A blanco update went up yesterday afternoon.
GUESS WHAT IM BACK FROM COMICS VACATION!!!!! AND THERE’S A NEW BLANCO UPDATE AT http://blancocomic.com
BLANCO IS ALSO ONE YEAR OLD TODAY AAAAAAH!!!!
I put this on Twitter but I’m putting it here, too. Where I’m leaving it for the night. I just super wanted to paint something happy.
I’ve been filming this one. I forgot some footage from when I was working on the background but otherwise it will all be there for video! Hopefully I’ll have it up later in the week.
Thank you for being okay with me posting my comic update here, too, Mastodon. I try not to spam everyone with the same thing but also I really like my webcomic and I’m proud of it and put a lot of love into it and I just really wanna share it sometimes ;-;
Anyway it’s called Blanco, for those who haven’t read it and maybe wanna, and you can read it at http://blancocomic.com
