Tea Spirit of the Month | January | Rose Chai by MobilePants Tea Spirit of the Month | January | Rose Chai by MobilePants
I've always wanted to draw a tea spirit in context.

My idea behind tea spirits is that they are born when someone drinks a super delicious cup of tea. The spirit's form and powers are dependent on the type of tea but also the emotions of the person who is drinking the tea.

That would be fantastic, to take a sip of tea, have a creature pop out of nowhere looking as awesome as a pink tiger, and have something to enjoy your tea with..Amazing!!

This is absolutely beautiful ! The colour scheme and the softness to the roses is wonderful. I love your added description and even how you've portrayed the culture within this piece. Rose chai is one of my favourites and its pretty neat to see you make a tea spirit out of it :)

I had wondered whether your spirits existed in the physical or not -- this is a super fun idea :'D! Gosh, and the colors are so pretty in this ... I just love all the warm and cool bits that you've picked out in the shadow areas. And such a pretty pink tiger this tea turned out to be!

The atmosphere is really soothing. It feels like it's been a while since I've seen pink and you've complemented it very beautifully with the deep green. The composition is lovely too. This makes me think of Kashmiri chai that my mum makes, it's the same pretty shade as the roses

Lovely painting! I like the limited palette.

sigh, i always love the way you color. do you have some tips on coloring? did you start of with lineart or you used the color blocking technique?

anyway i super love the pink-peach tint on this, it looks calming, and the tiger looks lovely in pink too! :D Only one thing that the lower part of the tiger's body are too thin, as if it doesn't have any pelvic bones, but it still looks pretty fine <3

thanks! I usually do a sketch layer then rough out the colors underneath (very blobby big brush) and then I start painting on top of both of those layers until it looks somewhat finished :D
I never do lineart because I chage my mind constantly while I'm painting.

And you're right, it does look a little thin. I guess got carried away with the exaggeration of the shape. It's going to bother me now! ha ha...I might fix it.

Oh you did it just like how the traditional oil painters did! That's pretty impressive! I love it when artists paint like that. It has this opaque kind of feeling, like yours. :D

Haha you can fix it later though! when you're free. But no worries, its not like it ruined the whole drawing anyway :D
