Selene and Helios Picture

I am apparently on an original art binge at the moment. ^_^ Whoo.

I was also not sure if this would go under paintings because of the watercolor or mixed media because it's a pen and ink drawing with a watercolor background. Fucking DA and it's stupid confusing categories.

Anyway. The piece!

A few weeks ago I sketched Selene and Helios into my sketchbook and wanted to do something with them. But I didn't really know what. Then I traced and transferred them to a piece of watercolor paper (much better spaced) and inked them and painted them with rubber cement and painted background.

I was going to paint them too, but this just looked so cool.

So I might do full color studies of them another day. But this piece is done. : )
