Spider Queen by Lithium-Tears Spider Queen by Lithium-Tears
just something I did to use up the leftover inks and paints used to paint the backgrounds of my short film (which aren't turning out as I'd like them too..OH well)

fun fact: I HATE SPIDERS.

I've been wracking my brain trying to figure out who this reminds me of and i finally got it, Coraline, the evil mom when she turns into a spider, were you channeling her? haha

great colors! love the pink!
but what i always wonderd about this technique is: do you first use the watercolors and paint the outlines afterwards or do you use a special ink or something that resists the watercolor? or do you just use a pencil for the scetching and then use the watercolor and then draw the outlines..? :D
sorry for this silly questions but i never used watercolors but find it very intresting and want to start with it the right way..so maybe you can help me to get to know a bit more about that.. :)

Thank you!! :D
Most of the time I outline (ink) the drawing first, however if you go for really realistic watercolor paintings usually you dont ink but paint the pencil sketch. For inking I use Sakura Micron Pens, though any waterproof pen should work fine :)
