donna cathalina and mr cath by ~jabberholic is a heart-warming image that looks as if it came out of an Aesop's Fables story-book. Please be sure to take a look at some of the other art in this artist's gallery! ( Suggested by Lipovitz and Featured by cooley )

hello, been looking at many of your work and they're amazing, i love your lines and the watercolors and textures, please don't mind my asking though, did you scan this art as a whole, what i mean is, is this all traditional, or did you scan each element and edited on photoshop.

in other words, like, did you scan the lines first, then the watercolors and combined them in photoshop, or you didn't use photoshop at all? thanks :D

this is rather old work of mine. i mean, even my comment is quite... well, now for i would not write something like this:D

it's scanned as a whole art, it's pure traditional work. firstly i draw lines and secondly i filled a drawing with a watercolorus. and i don't mind you asking, don't worry.

thanks for the reply, yeah, this is a little old, :) but this work, like many of your works, is amazing, it looks like it's been taken from a children's book, very professionally done. :D

Water colours are hard as hell to work with. I didn't think they could be used like this. That being said, I find this pic simply amazing. Awesome work.
