Watercolor tutorial ver 1.0 by eikomakimachi Watercolor tutorial ver 1.0 by eikomakimachi

It appears you don't have PDF support in this web browser. Download PDF

So, here is the first version (first because I may add more stuff/make a revision on this later) of my watercolor tutorial.

You may want to DOWNLOAD IT, since it's a PDF file, although it's possible to view it here

This is intended to show people how I do my watercolors. It's not a complete guidebook of watercolors.

Sorry for any typos or grammar mistakes on the pdf, like I said I didn't have time to make a proper revision.

i don't get the carbon thingy. so you put it under the drawing, trace the drawing then it appears on the carbon paper?

No, you put a blank watercolor paper, then over it you put the carbon paper with the carbon side facing the watercolor paper and then over the carbon paper you place your drawing, so when you trace your work the carbon on the carbon paper will get inprinted over the watercolor paper.

Cool techniques! I'm definitely going to try the "carbon copy" method!

It's a nice thing to do when you are not used to watercolor yet :), so you can always practice on a copy before going to the real deal :D

Very nice and detailed tutorial! I do not dare to try watercolor since I'm a messy person (digital art is my thing), but that's a great "step by step" tut nonetheless.

I've been working on it since January (yeah, 7 months now) and I still have 2 minutos to animate and work on, and only 4 months to finish it, but its going great, thank you! ^^ I'll show it to everyone once I'm done ; )

I used to suck on watercolors, but I liked it so much that I tried very hard to learn it by observing other people's works with watercolors and reading books/tutorials, I hope my own tutorial helps people get a glimpse of some tricks and techniques :)
