Bitesized Blogpost 4: A Factoid

I was invited to participate in a fun project illustrating a factoid, like one you'd find under a Snapple bottle. I ended up with "Tigers have striped skin, not just striped fur."

Here is what I came up with...sparing you all the bad drawings of tigers I made before I found my animal anatomy book.
And here's a figure painting from last night.  I'm not sure if I love or hate Yupo paper, but the results are always interesting.

...and that wraps up my bite-sized blogpost spree. Hope you all enjoyed. Now I must return to hibernation.

I love the anti-scratch collar you've put on the tiger!

I've never tried Yupo paper though I know a few people who use it. I worry about whether the paint would come off if it got damp? It must be like painting on waxed paper, which is - frankly - weird.

It does active when wet. Not all of it, but enough to mess it up. But thats really not too unlike regular watercolor.

And yes, it is very very weird to paint on. The textures you get by accident are the main reason I play with it, but the control is barely there.
