¿Como consigues el efecto del fondo?¿tan oscuro? ¿y el realismo de las gotas?
Estoy impresionada

Okay. lol I wanted to give more prizes, but couldn't. I hope the group grows, and future contests can have better prizes. Need to start a point donation pool or something for it maybe.

yeah water it's so fun to do =)
i love using water in my sketch drawings for school...

and the funny part is that people think that water is so much difficult to do but it's actually one of the most easiest things to do...
it's not like u have to shade that much... xDDD

You know I made a big mistake drawing drops to begin with and actually they're not so bad :) The secret is not to draw much at all and just shade the shadows and leave the white white, it sort of forms itself that way. On this one, the dark background created a lot of dust, so the paper got a bit dirty, I added a few dots of white gel pen for the very white parts.

HTH
