Tiger Salamander in watercolour pencil

It's the return of the salamander, yes.

This and the pictures I'll post after were all done for posters at work. They'll be lightened and basically used as background images/watermarks, so I haven't put a whole bunch of detail into them.

The pencils I used are Derwent Inktense, which I'm still getting used to. The ink wash effect is pretty cool, I think. And once I get it thoroughly into my head that I can't move the pigment around once it's dried, I expect that I'll be having a lot of fun with my new toy.
