How'd you do this exactly? I'm kinda new to using gouache and kinda wanna start fucking around with water color.... so I'd like to know what steps you took to make this. If there is a good tutorial or something that can show me, point me to it? :) love your work.

Hi there,
to be honest I've never really looked at tutorials or taken any lessons
on using watercolour or gouache... I just kind of made it up! (early in
the days when I was first experimenting with painting I was using 
acrylics, and my dad said I was using them like they were watercolours,
so he bought me a watercolour set and said give it a go.. and it was love!!)
I feel like there'd be a billion watercolour and gouache turorials on
youtube if you search, so if you have no clue where to start I'd recommend that ..
Otherwise just play around and experiment.. that's what I did!

Maybe you should make a tutorial or just record yourself working so we can watch. :)

It's a page from an old novel, and the text itself was not important to this particular piece,
I just really liked the yellowed paper and old fancy embellishments.

Something worth noting though: One of the characters in the novel IS named "Zeb", and that's where I got the name of the character in this piece! :aww:

I'm sorry I don't remember! It was just a really old book I found in a second hand store!
Why did you want to know?

I don't know exactly?

But I read what I could and it looked interesting (I'm a big book worm :D)
