I’m gradually dipping my toes back into commission work, and this was both fun and challenging piece. I was trying to go for a slightly anime realism (kind of realistic, without all the textures).

I’m not going to be taking on watercolour commissions for a little while I think. One of the medications I’m on gives me the occasional hand tremor. This is fine if I screw up my own painting, but not so good when I’m working on a client’s work. It has been gradually getting better, but it’s still there enough for me to notice and have to put the painting down. Digital is not so bad. I can zoom in and out, I also have the undo button :)

And if you want to keep up with me on a regular basis, you can find me on @NicoleCadet on Twitter (random thoughts, this is where I most like to chat), nicolecadet on tumblr (reblogs of content from here), NicoleCadetFantasyArt at Facebook, and NicoleCadet on DeviantArt
