I’ve drawn a happy Link from The Legend Of Zelda – Four Swords. I’m using watercolor as a base and try to create depth using colored pencils on it. This technique I’ve seen on Instagram a lot and always wanted to try it on my own.

    If you follow me on Instagram you’ve already seen this drawing. This is the 2nd time I’m training to use enough contrast when coloring.

    Since a long time I’m also using watercolor again. I know an artist from Instagram who does the base color using watercolors and then creates the depth using colored pencils over it. I wanted to try that out. ButI was not able to control the contrast of the watercolor so I’m not sure if I really benefit from that. The only good thing is that therefore the background is not empty.

    Besides the watercolor this is a quite quick drawing but I hope you enjoy it! (Sorry that I’ve written “Coloring Background” in the video even though I’m coloring everything… πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‡

    Thanks for watching and your support!

    I love you! 😘
