Coming up for air


As you may or may not know, Mafus has challenged me to a sketch-off as I haven't posted anything is about two months. He chose Hellcat for this auspicious occasion, a character I know next to nothing about, only that she really likes the color yellow. Since I've been wanting to paint I decided I'd use watercolor and gouache for the challenge. Due to the long break in my creative endeavors I'm creaking like the Tin-Man with a severe case of oxidation, so I'm still on the underpainting portion of the piece. (Sorry for the crappy phone pic, but it was easier than scanning at the moment.)

I hope to polish it off in the next couple o' days as it's been energizing to pick up the brushes again.

Progress update:
Haven't gotten as much done as I'd like, but dealing with a bad tooth. (Root canal in the morning! Woo-hoo!)

It's almost done. I added the gold paint last night and just need to ink it. Of course, my 'rent and youngest brother are in town tonight and staying until Saturday. Once they've left I'll finish and post it.
