Sausage. I'd personally like some sausage.

This has a lovely soft chromatic feel of autumn, its' really sweet and well formatted and the drawing is really good - what more can you ask for? :heart:

Oh. In my opinion the paper and paints make all the difference in the world.
Mine are the fancy russian White Nights, but i suppose there's a large gray area of less fancy but still quality paints.

I've tried using less water but ends up looking pretty streaky. I use cheap watercolors though. Does that make a difference?

Hm, well i drew them with a ruler...and my watercolor technique is pretty controlled.. maybe smaller brushes can help you, and less water.

The texture is made by sprinkling salt on moist paint. Give it a try, its super-fun.

Saw this featured by *sakimichan. Great color choices. They really reflect the warmth of autumn leaves. How did you keep the lines of the border so clean? I keep getting a lot of bleed when I use watercolors. Also, what did you use to create the texture in the background?

This is beautiful! It looks like an illustration from an old book about fairy tales - very classic and autumny.

Beautiful colour palette and rendering and I especially love the overall layout. :) I've seen that group contest, but I've wondered, how to put at least two aspects of autumn into one painting like they ask for.

The group admin is very fond of the Grimm Brothers tales so i had that in mind while typing XD

It took me a while to figure out... Grim should so be spelt with two m's.

You put one too many m's in Grim so the icon isn't working.

This image is beautiful by the way, I love it.
