Queen of the Savana

Hi!

I'm so happy for this class!

Creating textures is one of those things that I was always postponing... So I'm grateful for this class as it's making me observe and understand more what's around me.

Right now I', travelling and I don't have my watercolors with me, but I couldn't wait to start the project so I used a pencil to draw some kind of preliminary studies...

In particular I observed the work of Sehnaz Bac (https://www.facebook.com/ISassiDelladriatico/?fref=ts) that makes so detailed works, but she doesn't use watercolor, so I can't wait to try with this medium!

Here are my studies:

I didn't think of an animal yet, also I'm thinking of making a landscape!

UPDATE

Hi!!!

I couldn't choose an animal... I decided to go with a giraffe, but since I was a bit intimidated about the drawing, I decided to get inspiration and ideas from some of my favourite artist.

I'm always amazed by their use and combination of color, the details and their imagination.

Here is the work of Sehnaz Bac. :

So I decided to play with my giraffe and draw it very approximately and with two tails, and this is how it looks:

Ok, I'm not very good at making collages...

...Anyway, it wasn't my intention to have a black background, but I did a mess and I just covered everything with ink. If I'll find the time I'll remake everything or think about how to work the background because I don't like it like that at all... but for the moment, this is it!

UPDATE!

I finally made another version, which is closer to my initial idea and I'm very satisfied this time!!!

...In the meantime I also took a class to learn how to do mood boards (https://www.skillshare.com/classes/design/Basics-of-Photoshop-Fundamentals-for-Beginners/1320270520) to upgrad my collage ability XD

Playing with textures is really a lot of fun and I can't wait to paint more!
