Salt? I don't know why I'm asking for an onslaught of water-color technical jargon, but what do you do with salt?

whoa sorry about not answering this earlier!

when you sprinkle salt on a wet wash, it absorbs the liquid and holds pigment in place in different concentrations as it dries to create a crystal like texture effect like what's seen in the white as the snowflake texture and as the grainy texture in the background. :3 When you wipe it away, it leaves a unique texture on the area it was applied to

Wonderful picture. All the small details and general expression is just breath-taking. I especially love how her hair fades into the background and the detail on the back of the shoes.

Nice to see it all completed! It was interesting to watch the painting process in your tumblr there.

Great work! *eats up all the detail and steals it away for himself* Mine.

amped to see you do it! The changes are functional but those shoulders are going to be a pain in the tits to sculpt. Treat them like a hollow mouth, though! You'll get a better silhouette out of them, with the horns coming down into the cavity. :3 But at least the torso part gets you out of a corset. xDD

I'm actually a bit more comfortable with the shoulders, than the tits. My last pair came out mostly ok, as far as protective armor goes, but they don't look right, as many people note. >.<
The last armor also got me out of the corset because it came down so far it was nearly impossible to see the corset, so I could go without. This, though, would expose much more midriff and maybe make a corset a possibility again.
But I don't have the hips, ass, legs for the way she's drawn; I'll have to continue hiding under a skirt. xD

I'm actually very comfortable with corsets, up to about 4" off my waist... but I still think it would be a bit too risque for me to try to pass off my ass as a chick's! I seriously like how you've drawn it though.

~JackieBayer got it right. the salt is used to make the textures that are in the upper part of the painting, with both the snowflake looking textured effect in the white as well as the mottled texture in the blues in the upper right

It creates the white patterns in the watercolor, I believe :) I know alcohol and salt interact with watercolor to make some pretty funky effects

I really appreciate how your style balances really spontaneous washes with the meticulous attention to details and light. What I think I like most in this piece is there's a sort of swirling, less "finished" area near the middle of the figure and then that very precisely drawn boot comes out of it. It all works.
