So I managed to screw up not one but TWO pictures in one day. How fantastic is that? 😀
The thing is, I messed up the backgrounds of two pictures and figured to hell with it, I’ll Posca the thing to oblivion. Note, I’ve never used Posca before. Anyway so all went relatively smooth and well, didn’t quite like the slightly stripy-patchy look but oh well, better then before, I reasoned. And then… I sprayed the pictures. Lets put it this way… DON’T! I’m guessing it might be okay to spray JUST Posca (which btw I’ll try out soon and possibly screw up a third picture as well) but don’t ever ever spray Posca on top of pencil. Sealant will make the wax shine through Posca like there’s no tomorrow.
So now I have two screwed up pages in Sommarnatt by Hanna Karlzon. Soon possibly three. Yay for me! If I’d drink, I’d probably need a shot of something strong right about now. But I don’t so I’ll settle for chocolate.
Trust me, it’s MUCH worse in person. But see how whatever was below shines through? You can see it clearly above her hand.
But man, this one. Oh god:
Since I decided halfway through the background that oh hell no, this ain’t working and the previous Posca looked okay (since I hadn’t sprayed it yet), I figured ah whatevs and did this too. So now half the page is a shiny mess and the other half is matte. Like… Thanks.
We’ll see what happens when I spray the third one. That one is for a challenge in the group Colored Creations so I’m not allowed to show it yet, the deadline was I think July 11.
They might look good from afar. Like from Mars. But while I don’t mind fails now and then, I’m not too happy about such grand epic fails in a book I’m actually trying to finish as a kind of an achievement.
So. Where’s that chocolate?
