Ernie by ursulav Ernie by ursulav
Another little experiment with scribbly techniques. This one was done with an initial pass of watercolor and acrylic ink brush strokes, then another pass in colored pencil. The colored pencil on the little dragony guy is much looser than it looks in this image, but again, it lends a bit of a grain and volume that I've been fooling with. Having gotten the technique together, I'm now trying to figure out the best places to apply it, which is what little quick pieces and random characters like this are all about.

I thought he looked kinda like an Ernie.


Anyway! 9 x 10ish, original is for sale, prints available for a mere $10 plus shipping, send a note or follow the [link]

garsh
you are SO a texture master
i have only to look up to you
but i guess that depends on how tall you are
unless, say, we're talking about looking up to you on the highest rungs of the texture ladder
yeah that'll work

Ernie is a good and proper name for this perplexed looking critter. He's pondering a great problem.

I've always wondered what "an" Ernie looks like. Now I know. Thank you, it has been very educational ;)

And you have yet to post a single picture here on DA that doesn't appeal to me :)

Awwww he looks so sad. I just wanna give him a big hug and feed him loads of cookies! He'd be the best pet. :)

Anyway back to reality, great work once again. I love this new scribbly technique, and i love your original and somewhat unusual imagination. :glomp:

Take care. xxxxx

Definitly an Ernie.

I think the scribbly style looks the best on the tree and background, though I'd probably have to see it in person to get the full effect.
