WATERCOLOR PORTRAIT BY LAOVAAN.
Laovaan is a German art student who works in traditional media. His favoured medium is watercolour paints but he lists ink, marker pens and pencil among the materials he generally uses. If I had to choose one thing I really liked about his work it would be how he does the hair on characters, keeping to the anime style but giving a layered semi-realistic look which is something I often struggle to achieve. As well as having a DeviantArt page to showcase his work (http://laovaan.deviantart.com) he keeps a YouTube channel (https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCev-WO-s0bnCA8bMvIDDZ0Q) on which he shows the process of creating his artwork which I find helpful as a resource to use when trying to use similar mediums to him or understand how to do something (e.g. Colouring skin etc.). The fact he works in a style similar to my own makes him more of an inspiration to me as I can use his artwork as reference to improve my own work as well as draw inspiration from it.
