Coloring Practice by rika-dono Coloring Practice by rika-dono
It's for illustration not designs :)

I've read your comments and I think n2 is better for what I want to do :)

Time for usual coloring : about 30minutes
Time for watercolor : about 45minutes

process for both : youtu.be/mgvn2PPb4Wc

They are both beautiful, with their own uniqueness. Your usual is well defined and vibrant in color. Your watercolor is more blended and realistic.

I think the watercolor version looks more dimensional and defined on the skin and hair...

And the usual colors are sharp and vivid on the clothes...

Not sure it'd be possible or would even look good, but maybe splice the two? /:3c

They're both very nice, but I feel number one "pops" more. But one look at my gallery and it will probably become very clear that I tend to go for a lot of colors <.<

I'd say 1 for clothing designs, and basic drawings, but 2 for more complex pictures definitely. Both are great.

I agree. For simple designs, I personally would go with number one, as it shows the base color better than number two, but for more complicated illustrations, I would go for number two. It has a more soft look to it, and I think it also makes the drawing look a lot prettier with the blended in purples. But it's your decision, so do whichever you're more fond of, and the one you have the most fun with. :)

1) Looks great for designs and any picture with a bright, happy, energetic feel.
2) Looks great for realistic images and gives off a calm, quiet feel

Both are good, and I think you should use them for different circumstances.

2 is probably better as for illustrations rather than designs, though 1 is better for things like clothing designs and such due to more vibrant colors c:

The watercolor one looks both more refined and sketchy at the same time, and I like the palette more there, but I'm also inclined to the 'usual' one because it has a better base substance...so I dunno. If you can give the watercolor style more substance, like in this example the midline and darker parts get darker, richer color, then go for that.

Just my 2 cents.

Practice makes perfect. :) And I think you can develop a very nice, refined style that's detailed without being too overwhelming if you can mix the two.
But yeah, everything is perfect, and this is just my opinion. Your style should be what you like to ude and, feel good using and developing.
