Wreck-It Ralph: Watercolour Candy by forte-girl7 Wreck-It Ralph: Watercolour Candy by forte-girl7
With my computer out of order for the next... week or so, I have decided to get in touch with my more... traditional roots. So I went out and bought a cheap set of watercolours to play with. Now understand, I next to never paint. I never use watercolour. The last time I used them was like... in high school because I had to. And that was for like... a day. You know how it goes. So yeah : ) Here was my experiment. King Candy from Wreck It Ralph!

Turned out pretty good for an experiment I must say, so I figured I'd share with you guys and show that I'm not completely dead with my computer being out of order ><

I love this! Very nice use of watercolour! Wonder what it would have been like however... if Turbo had just made himself a fellow racer... maybe given himself a name like 'Blackstrap Moe' after the molasses that comes from the third boiling of sugar cane - blackstrap molasses. Am thinking of making a fanfic about something like that, but it would involve an old, non-glitched Turbo Time game being shipped into the arcade. Poor Turbo, blank-slate and all, is overwhelmed and rather shy at seeing all these high-definition characters, and most of them distrust him immensely. What happens? Does he succeed and make friends eventually, and possibly deal with the reputation his earlier incarnation garnered, or will the nice if-somewhat-bratty Vanellope adopt him into her game? Would he do things differently and overcome these setbacks?

Anyhoo, there's only a few things that really need fixing; the outlines look a bit out of place, because in a watercolour painting, it should be done mostly with colours and shades, rather than like a colouring book. It does however fit his cartoony design. Another thing I would recommend is cleaning up the sketchy lines. Try using GIMP or hax'd Photoshop for that, 'cause there is a 'healing brush' that you can use to for example paint over the pencil lines with the pink background or the peach coloured skin. It would make the painting look a whole lot better. But anyways it does look very nice! Keep practicing and keep up the good work!

Aw well thanks for the tips : ) I'm still new to watercolours and I'm so used to relying on my outlines. I'll keep it in mind when I pick up my brush again though ^^

You know, even though this was an experiment, I still think it's gorgeous. Nothing overlaps, it keeps that cartoony look like in the movie, and it screams cuteness. Two thumbs up!

Hey, for an experiment, this is pretty optimistic!
Love his expression, and the fact that his face actually looks like a round object would in real life. The spherical shape was nicely conveyed.

I really hope you get your computer fixed. Not only do you miss it, we miss it too. Tuesday feels empty without Chameleon Charm. :XD: Next time around, compensation pages, yes? :D

Ha, I don't think you understand. The first 10 pages were done well before the comic released and posted by themselves there. I was working on a new stockpile for the queue, but then my hard drive decided to start failing. When I resume posting, there's still only going to be one page a week and it might be a while before I'm comfortable posting again with my inability to do any significant work on them. You have to remember I have college classes to worry about, along with all the assignments and responsibilities linked to them.

Ah, I see.
If so then by all means, don't rush!
But I'm looking forward to the next installment, whenever it comes!
Which means you did an awesome job so far because I'm actually curious as to what happens next. I'm really excited about Ferdinand's entrance too. :D

I like the soft textures of the painting. Quick question what type of paper did you use? I myself typically use comic paper because it's really thick and can handle the excess water (if a lot of water is applied). Though if you get the chance the $1 poster boards work great for soft picture as well as heavy ones. Nevertheless I look forward to see if you do more water colour pictures. :3

Uhh when I bought the watercolours, I bought a small, cheapie pad of watercolour paper for it.

ahh ok I was just curious cause I know that soft colors is usually associated with lots of water and depending on the type of paper you use the colouring process can destroy the paper. I've lost 1 too many pictures that way.

Ahhh sorry for the late reply - but yeah. I tend to use a lot of water too, so the paper doesn't lie flat, but I have yet to lose anything. I think I'm careful, but lol, I really don't know what I'm doing when it comes to watercolours half the time.

Well Watercolor is really trial and error, Some things work some things don't. I was forbidden by my mom to use water color for many years simply because it can get a bit messy. I've only been working with it for a little over a year now. ^^;

here's a tip: when it comes to liquid water color paint be careful on the different shades that can be purchased at art stores because when mixing paint it can come out a different tint then what you want. example the base purple color, some purples are more blue while others are more red. So when mixing with another color you might get a red or blue tint.

I learned that it's easier to use flat colors as preferred to pre-made shades.

Looking fabulous!

I am of the opinion that you should draw with watercolors more often. I know they're a pain in the butt (a lot of the time) BUT if your other sketches come out like this, it's worth it.

WARNING! SPOILERS IN THIS COMMENT!

...

I like how you're the only Wreck-it Ralph villain fan that I've come across who seems to prefer King Candy to Turbo. I find that kind of cool. c:

I do not trust my traditional paint skills NEARLY enough to experiment with watercolors at this point. But I really like the feel of this piece! :la:
