The Seed of Imagination by Qinni The Seed of Imagination by Qinni
Imagination birthed from books...

This is one of the sketches I like enough to post seperately :D
Another drawing from My Sketchbook Project.
You can find the rest of it on my tumblr.

Yay, i started using watercolors. I hadn't really touched watercolours in years until now xD;;. a little rusty but still just as fun as I remembered. I think I took off most of my old watercolours off dA though ^^;.

Don't ask me how I stumbled across your artwork here, and then saw it randomly the next day on a totally different site.
Had to share.
Fast forward to 31:10 on the video.… Cheers!

May I ask how you use watercolours? As in, do you use a pen or pencil or paints to outline some parts? Do you use masking fluid or are you just incredibly neat? Eh, sorry ^^'

But this is absolutely beautiful~as is the rest of your work :D
Qinni Featured By Owner May 16, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I use pencil to sketch, watercolour to paint and outline, if needed. The outline's just darker watercolour. I don't have masking fluid so this one's just done really really meticulously xD;;. plus the paper's so small (half the size of printing paper) masking fluid won't be that great anyways, as i wouldn't be able to find a small enough brush to apply it right.

and thanks :D
xian-li Featured By Owner May 16, 2013
Thank you, I'm going to give watercolours a go (again) armed with this xD

Hey, excuse me but, i am requesting to use some of your pieces of art for a school project about "Manga as a form of art" but, for that, i need you pemission of course. This is for non-lucrative purposes and if you want i can give credit. But, if you don't want it will be fine O w O
Qinni Featured By Owner May 10, 2013  Professional Digital Artist

Enchanting and incredible - the use of colour is incredible - I am very envious of the gold colour you've achieved <3
Just magical and enchanting - I love love love this
Execution is incredible

{Question, my 'prussian blue' watercolour has been a bit dull lately {it may of course also be the paper dulling it's not 'bright' white}- and as you have here, I also mix it with purple (which is so beautiful!) - but the more vibrant tones - perhaps coming out of the left hand side near the book - and up higher - it seems almost turquoise /teal /{greenish blue, kingfisher blue -- -I was wondering did you use another colour? [to mix with perhaps?] Or another blue colour?
The colours in this photo are just what I have been very lately trying to achieve - I'm not sure where I'm going wrong <3
I just want to stare at this forever, it's soo beautiful! xxx
The gold stars, fish, leaves, the whale are just so vibrant and stunning - and gorgeous! And your blue{s} starry night sky is just so starry and gorgeous - I love love love love love it! I love this concept so very much, thank you so much for letting us all see it and marvel at it's beauty xxxx

I love all your other sketches too! Their concepts and execution are just so beautiful, dazzling, peaceful and wistful - not to mention how incredibly magical they all are
I'm so glad I found you on here <3 xxxx :rose: :heart: :love: xxxxxxx

Reminds me of when i read to my daughter when she was younger. i could almost see what she was imagining just like you have depicted here. vivid in color with that bit of whimsy that childhood tends to inject into our lives. never lose that.
