SUPER old piece! This is a pen and ink line drawing with watercolor washes on top. I photocopied the line drawing on to a paper called "barrier paper", which has a nice texture and takes water based media well. I used to use it a lot when I was doing architectural renderings back in the day.

The drowing is fine, but I think she wouldn't survive so long on the battlefield...

I really like the colouring, and you handle drawing guns very well. A lot of people really screw up guns.

I must have looked at some reference; I don't know a whole lot about guns.

I think it's more OCD than patience...

oh sorry -

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder; kind of a neurosis where you get overly focused on details.

lol it's not a bad thing tho-when u apply it to some places.it also shows u r observative and patient.but i know some people who suffer from that and their work just looks flat because every part of it is dealt with the same attention.
