I agree! I'm one of the very few art atudents at my school that admire him (along with Aubrey Beardsley...) it's also fascinating to see how they went about printing his work. Wow! I wish I could go see them! That's too amazing. But I doubt Las Vegas has enough culture to get the show to come down here lol.

This definitely gives me some things to think about. The last watercolor I did was this [link] and I used something like that to do it, but yeah, black just doesn't work. 'Specially when it's cheap and turns pink when you try to bleed it out.
after reading your tutorial I have really big respect for your attention to details, and effects you achieve.
watercolours is my favourite technic, that's why I'm so fascinated with the work and time you invest in one art.
Keep up the good job, and best regards!
After all these years, the ancient chinese secret is finally revealed!!!!! I always had assumed that you created your masterpieces with pure magic and alchemy. Wizard! Disappointing to find out it was just by using stinky old watercolors. We are not worthy to know such secrets, Robb, but I am overjoyed that you set this all up for us, this is beyond great!!!!!!
You are blowin up, Robb!!!!
Great tutorial (should it be called like that?!) It's been a while that the idea of starting to use water-colors popped in my mind, but I am too scared of buying a set and not knowing then how to use it properly!
Haha, man, I am so busy it isn't even funny. Just got finished knocking out 6 pages in 2 days including flats. Now I've got 25 more pages to do within the next 2 weeks, as well as 9 covers. After that's all done, then I'll actually have a small breather where I can finish up some commissions.
