Here we go, just a little work on Spooky, but as promised, I'll keep it sort of a tutorial on the use of Derwent Graphitints, so the first layer's as follows (at least now you can see him, even though the colors are very off, my scanner sucks, alas my PSP skills do):

-I outlined the eyes and applied a light pressure layer of Aubergine in the pupil, with vertical strokes being careful to leave the highlight free of any color.

-I layed down Meadow on the entire iris, with very light pressure, circular strokes and still preserving the highlight.

-I established the darkest values with Juniper with loose scribble strokes and very light pressure.

That's all for now folks. Next installment coming soon a theater near you ;p

Many hugs,

Where I am: Still in a peaceful land
My mood: Inspired
What I'm listening to: Bach - Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring

I love the start Jade! Reminds me very much of a cat I did (on my art profile under postcards)... I love these kinds of cats... they are so sweet! Not spooky at all, you're in the beginning stages. :) I love the Bach selection you made! SOO inspiring! Love ya! Rose
