The chi is painted with Daniel Smith Shadow Violet, which has that awesome granulation in it naturally. I was hoping it would give the look of some ethereal substance so i hope that comes across. For his body, I mixed a similar tone Ultramarine Blue, Alizarin Crimson and Payne's Gray and was able to keep the granulation only in the energy. I finished it off with a Caran D'Ache supracolor pencil to add in some lines to his head, mainly the jaw line and his nose.
Materials: Daniel Smith and Sennelier watercolors
