Hello everyone !
As part of my role at @nTopaz, I brought to you today an announcement for an Art Contest :D Yay!
The theme for this art contest is Childhood Memories and you may submit illustrations (digital or traditional) of things that may invoke the thoughts of childhood memories as a theme. You may submit pictures of your own childhood memories or fictional ideas related to this theme :)
Most important thing is to be creative!
The contest will run from Sunday 17 February 2019 to Sunday 3 March 2019, Korean Standard Time.
Here is a watercolour picture I drew about a memory of a late afternoon, from childhood. As the birds flew home, my child self watched them idly and happily, after having spent the entire day playing with friends :D
For the step by step, keep scrolling below below below :D
A few more examples:
A fictional idea of a child growing up as a mechanic at a sci-fi star base :D... This was ink on paper :)
An illustration of celebrating Children's Day with flying the koi kites :D... Children's Day is celebrated at May 5 every year in Japan :D
This picture reminds me of playing a lot of jRPG games as a child :D I made this with pencil :)

Step by Step
I'm still learning so there's still a lot of stuff I'm not doing right and yes I made the sky wrong again XD I painted it between the branches because apparently, bad habits die hard aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah
Step 1: I used more colours as @shibasaki told me to do in his latest post... He says, sky doesnt always have to be blue, be bold with your own imagination!
Step 2: More colourful grass
Step 3: Trees :D
Step 4: Sky in between branches XD
Step 5: Layered more colours and added the birds at the distance and DONE :D
Okay, that's it from me for now :D I didn't end up videoing my watercolour but that's cuz I havent really figured out how to set it up yet... but I shall! Dohohoho~
