El Duende by secretplanet El Duende by secretplanet
El Duende is the spanish word meaning brownie/pixie etc. he turns up all over the spanish speaking world with slight variations.
in parts of the Phillipines he protects his friends, the forest animals, from people who harm them for fun & that appealed to me!
watercolour pencil, prismacolour pencil, & marker pens on bristol paper
this image is scanned, but looks a little grainy on my big LCD screen.. on my little laptop it looks great! so please be aware of that if it looks grainy to you!

It looks pretty great to me. :D

Lovely piece... especially with the detail and shading. The colours work together well and the stance conveys the age (and possibly wisdom?) of the character well.

I like how you've defined the clothes and surroundings too.

i went & had it scanned properly at a printers, but i'm still not completely happy with how it looks on screen! at least the colours are true to the original!

Indeed! :D

Well, things will never look right on the screen when you've produced something traditionally.

Not unless you photograph it... Perhaps.
