cover art by BrianKesinger cover art by BrianKesinger
Another work in progress shot for my piece that will be the cover for dark beauty's 3rd annual steampunk issue. All the tea work is done and now I'm using some watercolors to add some contrast.

I love this! When you use watercolor, do you use regular pencil for your line work? I've always tried to use water color, but I've never been good at it.

This is cute! I haven't worked with watercolor I a while, I dabbled on a Rapunzel pic a year ago I think around July, but I don't think I did great because I kind of don't remember much from highschool, [link] I still like it. I mostly work in digital. I've wanted to learn more about the traditional means again, a sort of brush up. My art teacher wasn't that great, no offense to her, she did encourage me to keep going. I appreciate her enthusasum towards my art, but I learned almost nothing about painting.

So I don't know if you could even if you say can't teach me yourself or give tips, maybe you could recommend some good links or books that would show me more about the methods of painting and other work like this. I just adore the old way of doing things, just like I adore doing digital. [link] Oh and if you havent' figured it out yet I am a little in love with Rapunzel and the challenge she presents.

I am so glad Disney gave you a chance< I never could figure out who to contact. But that's ok, I still enjoy my work and having fun with my art even if I will b unlikely to ever be famous like you are. Anyways I love this work you are doing on the pics and the book, I just wish I had money to buy it, jobless at the moment.

I hope you will friend me, and even look at my gallery and give me some thoughts or feedback if you want. If you don't I totally get it you are busy, and its fine. :) I am not one of the artists who feels neglected if people don't critique, no matter what I am happy with my work the way it is and how I keep on changing and growing as an artist.

I don't know why I am writing all this to you, I think the heat wave has finally undone me! LOL Its like 90 something here the past few days. Anyways.......blah blah.........have a great day and hopefully you aren't melting like I am.

Sincerely,

Michelle Bowen

Seeing your art just confirms what art is to me: the way to create some kind of magic that touches people to their core :D!!!
I love the funny side of those two characters, and the fact her pet is an Octopus, super original :D!!! The way you draw is just so...flawless, it's as if you don't have to make any effort and it flows out naturally. That's a talent for sure!
Keep up the art :-)!!

I love how steampunk is a kind of rebellion against the Victorian times and your character is a complete lady. She just adds class to the entire concept!

you are using ink before painting right? My ink which is waterproof still smudge when i start to paint. May it be the paper choice?

Looks very promising! :)
