Walkthrough - Ozelot in watercolor by LittleMissRaven Walkthrough - Ozelot in watercolor by LittleMissRaven
My very first walkthrough ...

Not much text in it - I hope the pictures speak for themselves :)

Original painting here: [link]

Comments are very welcome :)



!!! OH MY GOD - itīs a DD !!!
(First of all I wondered about more than 2.200 messages in my inbox today when I opened deviantart... :D)

I never thought of getting one in this lifetime :D
so thank you all for all the :+fav:īs, comments and :+devwatch:!!!

Special thanks to jane-beata :iconjane-beata: and Elandria :iconelandria: for suggesting it!


I was asked many times how I did the hairs in the ear and in the area between eye and ear - so I will try to answer it here...

First of all I only used masking fluid for the eye, whiskers, eyelashes and the really white hair in the inner ear. I covered them up in a really early stage and didnīt touch them till the end.

All the other tiny hair are done with MANY MANY really TINY brush strokes and MANY MANY layers. In the fourth picture you can see that I lightly colored the area underneath... and after that I added all the small strokes in a semi-transparent layers.

IMPORTANT: Let your painting get completely dry between the layers!

The part between ear and eye and the ear itself were the most timeconsuming parts of this painting.

Thank you :hug:

The paints on the left are watercolors of Winsor & Newton.

Btw. having good materials is an important point. Good skills come with practise AND good materials!

Yeah, I've been told the same. And truth to be said the difference between school's Herlitz materials for kids and pro paints like Horadam is unforgettable. The only problem is with motivation. :roll: :D
