Space Painter by Earthsong9405 Space Painter by Earthsong9405
I gift I did for a friend of mine. C: This is of her character, Calliope, prancing and dancing in space with stars encasing her paws; in result, she's painting space with stars. xD

I had a whole lot of fun with this one. I'm trying new things a little bit at a time, and that includes using White Acrylic paint for the stars and mist... and 97% alcohol. That's right; I used the alcohol to warp the background, and it actually worked. o.o So I'm very pleased with the outcome. c:

Personally, I love her eyes... dunno why, though. :/ :shrug: aw well.

Anyway, I hope you like it, Calliope! 8D

----

Media: Watercolor, Colored Pencils, White Acrylic paint, 97% Alcohol on Bristol Vellum

Time Taken: 2 hours

Inspiration: 3rd Force: Lift Me Higher

---

Calliope (C): Her owner

Art (C): :iconearthsong9405: Me! :la:

DO NOT USE, TRACE OR COPY IN ANY WAY!!!!! Thank you. C:

D'aww, thanks! xD :heart:

Mm, I use the alcohol at any given time, actually. I found it works either way, wet or dry, but it spreads a bit easier when it's wet. However, warping seems to work better when the paper is damp; neither wet or dry. C: That's how I warped the background here. ^^

This is really beautiful. Did you use simply rubbing alcohol or was this a special alcohol that you buy in art stores? :)
