Commission: Applepus by MegLyman Commission: Applepus by MegLyman
A very fun tattoo commission for Amy. Her little guy apparently calls them "applepus" instead of octopus, which is adorable and also the reason for the toy.

6x8ish gouache and ink. I used a more impasto application of gouache than usual, and it was both challenging and educational.

Thanks!

I have been known to dabble with oils, but mostly I paint with gouache.

Gouache is a less common type of paint. It is similar to watercolor, but opaque. It is challenging but also fun to paint with.

The colour really comes through on this one, is that from the technique?

Probably that, plus the white paper. The colored paper I use most often really tends to suck the life out of the lighter colors.
