Another one of my characters...Watercolor and ink on 140lb paper.

oooooooo! 18 I love that background! I have done like, zip on watercolors, this is great. How did you get that effect?

:-) Erica Vermette replies: "I used tube watercolors and applied the paint directly to the paper. Then I swirled them all with a large brush, using lots of water. When it was just barely starting to dry I sprinkled a good amount of salt on it. Then I dried the whole thing thoroughly with a hairdryer, and brushed off the salt. Voila! It's a messy process though, and seems to attract lots of ants...Thanks for stopping by! 1"

BEAUTIFUL!! The background is *gorgeous*, and that girl is so haunting.. I like her position very much, and her expression, too. All the elements in this picture just fit together and work perfectly.

Oh, the background is so sw33t... just one of those completely abstract-types that actually turned out. Generally I like detail (though I don't draw it much myself) but the way you managed this was very cool. Watercolor has to be my favorite medium...

Her expression is... intense, in a manner. She's lost something, someone... and knows looking back won't help...

Ah, the plot bunnies. I love her expression...

:-) Erica Vermette replies: "Wow...Your assesment is very close to her actual storyline, I'm so glad that something of her history came through in her portrait! Thank you so much for your lovely comments."

*strokes Kurama doll that barely survived the move*

Moving right along then!
