Not much to say about these but DAMN. Award-winning London illustrator Daniel Mackie has created a gorgeous series of animal images, all hand-rendered in pencil and watercolor on paper, an increasing rarity in this age of digital art. From a Tangled Fingers interview:

I abandoned Photoshop in 2010 having used it as my main illustration tool for over ten years. Photoshop was making me cut corners and it was driving me crazy with its flat colours. Once I started using watercolour it became instantly clear to me that one of the reasons I was becoming so frustrated with my work was that I never had to make a solid decision. I could always undo something. When you’re using watercolour, you can’t undo it. You have to be brave, and as a result your decision-making gets better.

His blog features copious work-in-progress photos that give evidence of his considerable skill, and prints are of course available.

Swedish artist Anders Ramsell used 3285 watercolor paintings to create over 12 minutes of Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner entirely of watercolors.

This is part one. I suppose more are on the way.
