Watercolours, inks, Microns and coloured pencils on rough watercolour paper
This is a Chadhiyana piece I did a couple of months ago for an advertisement in the, recently released, premier issue of IAM Magazine (Independent Artists Movement) from MAS Media Studios. It's also one of the two last watercolour pieces I will be outlining in coloured pencils. The reason is, having looked at the first two Chadhiyana comic stories again and again (available on indyplanet.com or click through my website), I feel the coloured pencils, while beautiful, do not reproduce as well as I'd like. I need something bolder that reads clearer, so I may switch over to Microns for all of my watercolour-art outlines going forward (ala the Jon Snow piece I recently posted to my gallery).
That said, this is also probably the last Chadhiyana and Sagreembal (the serpent) piece I'll do for a while. As it is, I'm still hard at work on a script for a new Chadhiyana story and, frankly, I don't want the serpent pieces to get old, nor do I want to give anyone the impression that's the limit of the comic's characters and stories. There's plenty of new characters and material coming out of this new script which I'm hoping to begin sharing in the near future. In the meanwhile, if you haven't gotten your hands on a copy of "Chadhiyana," head over to IndyPlanet and do so. So far it's been well received, but I of course want even more people to read and enjoy it.
