This week I had an idea for my new signature character, so I said to myself my first attempt should be for this week’s Freestyle Friday. I started out doing washes and tags. I kept the basic shape in mind but I wanted a bunch of colors blended together. Then I sketched in the character and added designs with colored pencil and ink pens. Next, I took some white acrylic paint and “painted out” the background and areas I wanted to be white, 2 coats. Then I went back in with colored pencil, ink pens and water color to finish the designs. A “Rain Drop” was born!
