A Better Gleebella

Here is my latest Gleebella:

This one turned out much better, I think.  It is truly multi-media --- it is mostly water color and oil pastel, but also a little gouache, colored pencil, and ink!  I like the new paper I got from Dick Blick.  It is Strathmore 400 series Mixed Media vellum surface, comes in a 9x12 pad.  The watercolor flows on very smoothly and lifts off easily (which can be both an advantage and a disadvantage, I suppose), and it took the oil pastels very well also.
I will be putting this one in the shop tonight.  Next I think I might illustrate Gleebella's step-sisters, green skin, tentacles, and all --- ought to be fun  :)
