Wisps of color by MuEnLi Wisps of color by MuEnLi
Lame title, I know but I really didn't know what to name this picture lol.

My high school art teacher gave me a pack of art supplies when I went to visit her ^_^ including a pack of gel glitter pens. I decided to experiment with those gel pens.
This picture is the product of my experiment, it turned out beautifully. I used no reference and just worked with the pens with whatever color was available. Obviously I didn't use the black pen. I am so in love with this picture and my pens <33
The only thing Im disappointed in this is that I couldn't show off the shinyness of this picture, lol. The pens were not only gel based but also glitter as well. I don't think there is a camera or a scanner that high tech to take a glittered picture ^^; oh well, at least I have the original picture to admire, adore and stare at the shinyness as well XD lol.

Tools used:
- Sharpie white poster paint
- Sakura gelly roll glitter pens
- Markers
- Thick cardstock paper

Time: 5 min

***Here's a little factoid for all those who don't know me in RL: Im originally a traditional artist more so than a CG artist.

dont take it as a bad thing.... it's just that was the first thing i saw when i looked at it( it reminded me of carbuncle from FF8) and it was really pretty.

I know ^_^ don't worry I didn't take it as a bad interpretation, I just thought it was kind of strange because I didn't see it as a rabbit lol. Either way as I said, I respect your interpretation and I didn't take it as a bad thing either. Im actually happy to know your interpretation on it.

Who knew gel pens could be used for more things than prettifying teenage girls' notes in class?

I hope that made sense.

Yup, that made sense ^_^ I thought the same thing as well when my teacher gave me those gel pens. I decided to turn those gel pens into a kind of art media.
