Digital watercolor painting- going "old-school"

While digital painting has proven to be a beautiful, efficient, and cost-effective method for concept design and illustration, some clients still prefer the look of traditional media such as watercolors. I recently had a client request a few watercolor illustrations to match some previous artwork that had been done on the project. I suggested that we try a digital watercolor technique since it would be quicker and allow for easy changes if they became necessary. Not surprisingly, the client was hesitant at first so I provided a few quick samples of the technique. They were pleasantly surprised at how convincing the digital watercolors were so we proceeded with the digital route. Here are a few of the final renderings.
