ChrysanthemumMoon's Profile Picture
Artist | Student | Varied
Hello everyone! My name is Elez, and I am a watercolor artisit. When I'm not working with watercolor, I love to post drawings and try other art mediums. I am currently enrolled in a 2 year 3D Animation Program, because my goal in life is to work for the production company Rooster Teeth.

I also do art trades and commissions so if you are interested message me and we can work out the details!!!

Winter is Coming
Another double exposure painting! These are really fun to make and super relaxing. I love painting the sky so much and using masking fluid is the best. Just hope you guys wont get bored if a make a bunch more of these XD

Oh! I also used dome of the paint recipes from my last post in this too :3
Elez's Watercolor Mixing Recipes
You know how there are books out there that show you how to mix certain quantities of oil/acrylic paint in order to get a particular color? 

Yeah. That's practically nonexistent for watercolor, so here are some of my own recipes I created yesterday based off of colors I really wanted to add to my pallet. These were all made using my Winsor & Newton Watercolor Tubes, so color may vary depending on the set you use, but overall this is what they should look like. 

I am in love with all of these colors especially the Blues and Payne's Grey and I am hoping that I can get some new tubes of watercolor so I can mix even more colors!

(btw, if anyone uses this let me know how it worked out : 0 I'd love to hear back from you guys) 
Down to the Root
I'm in love with this painting. For once I did a good background, the colors are vibrant, there are details, look at the non-black outlines, just ahhhhh. This is so different from my original style and I based it off of my favorite watercolor artist Jacqueline de Leon. After seeing these results I think I should be trying different styles and elements from my favorite artists. It's a good way to learn and see what I do and don't like and try something new. This was so much fun to work on and I can't tell you how great it was to use watercolor paper again. I'm so used to painting in my sketchbook which is awful to use, so this was heaven. 

Anyways what do you guys think? Would you like to see more stuff like this or something different? I'd love feedback! 
Lucky Time
A few weeks ago I asked for suggestions on what clothes I should draw and my friend Emily said Flower Overalls and I was like why not so here it is! I decided to draw my bnha oc, Ame, because she looks cute in regular clothes and more approachable. Kinda has that edgy "I want to die" artist vibe thing going on. 

As for why the drawing is titled Lucky Time, it's part of her story. She's an antihero, so she doesn't do typical superhero things. Instead she hangs out in dark alley ways waiting for crimes to be committed. Once target is in place she pounces, ties them up and then calls the police force under the name "Lucky Time" (a separate alias where she pretends to be a person with a quirk for showing up at the right time to turn in criminals; This is used as a tactic to avoid questioning from the cops as to why she's always calling in when stuff goes down. Clever girl). Once the call is made she leaves the scene and lets the police take over. 

She is a very much in the shadows character who believes that sometimes the true villains are the ones that go unpunished in modern day society like rapists, gang bosses, human traffickers, etc. so that's why she takes care of the dirty work. 
Of the Night
Boy Howdy was I super fucking depressed this weekend but that's okay cause I got to paint this and watch the Rooster Teeth 24 hour Extra Life stream. 

I forgot how nice it was to paint on watercolor paper and how it's even nicer to paint skies. I thoroughly enjoyed using masking fluid and my shimmery blue ink (it sparkles irl) and I think this is my best galaxy yet tbh.

I gotta start painting more :0

As promised at the beginning of October, I'm going to do a shout out to all the artists that used my Inktober list!!! So without further adieu~

1. First up is :iconxxira-eshvoxx:

Inktober 2017 Day 1 - Witch by xXira-eshvoXx       Inktober 2017 Day 4 - Exorcism by xXira-eshvoXx

The second I saw their art I was blown away! I love all the details and effort that go into each piece and seeing how they interpenetrated each prompt was super neat. 

2. Next is :iconshy-orchid-ghost:

Inktober #1: Witch by shy-orchid-ghost Inktober #2: Wings by shy-orchid-ghost

Ahhhh, can I just say it was exciting to see some colored inktober pieces??? I adore the coloring and shading in each of these and was especially excited to see the wings piece!!! I see tons of potential in this artist and look forward to see their future art.

3. And finally we have :icontranquil-r:

Inktober 10-18-17 Succubus by Tranquil-R

This one certainly came out of the blue, but let me tell you I cant stop looking at it! The small details, the body positions, the fact that there is even more than one person in the piece! It's super impressive and what can I say, I'm a sucker for a succubus! 

And that is all folks! I was super excited to see each and everyone of these gorgeous works of art and I seriously recommend checking them out!
