i thought maybe you used masking fluid, but wow thats amazing

kellymckernan Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Masking fluid is too messy for me. I end up spending more time trying to make sure it covers everything I want correctly than I do painting carefully instead.

I like this a lot. The tones in the figure make it feel quite three dimensional and the air is so striking.
