PixelReason Toolbox - Afterschool Kahi Watercolor Portrait

A lot of people have been asking what tools I use for the pieces I create so I'll be putting up regular posts to showcase exactly what I used for each piece. And if you want a deeper look at my full toolbox, be sure to check out the PixelReason Toolbox section of this website!

I always try to keep things simple as far as tools are concerned. And for the things I do for, I especially try to keep from making things too complicated, because it always bothers me when aspiring artists believe that it's a magic brush or a magic pencil that will make you an amazing artist. It's not. It's practice. And when you're done with that, there's the real secret weapon:

...more practice :)

But I will say, after you understand what's really important, it doesn't hurt to have good tools. (Good music is always great too)

So here's the tools I used to create the latest piece: AFTERSCHOOL Kahi Park Watercolor Portrait.

AFTERSCHOOL Kahi (Park Gahee) Watercolor Portrait Painting

Afterschool Park Kahi

This is my watercolor portrait painting (and some pastel too) of Afterschool Park Kahi (or Park Gahee). 
Of course, she's now officially a solo artist, but most people will still think of Kahi as the first leader of Afterschool.
