A different style R…
So glad to finally be able to share this…
This is the latest sketch out of my toned paper sketchbook. I slowly worked at it here and there so that’s why it took so long to post… I forgot how much time can be spent on an actual finished quality drawing. Anyways, not much else to say. Just glad I’m feeling more comfortable with values because next comes color.
One of my latest sketches…
I decided to sketch while waiting for my girlfriend to straighten her hair… it was a win win situation Since I wasn’t at my house and this was in her mini scrapbook, I was only able to snap a photo of the sketch instead of the whole scan and Photoshop treatment. This drawing reminded me of the importance of cross-hatching across the form to give it more uhhh… form. Enjoy.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a sketch I started in my toned paper sketchbook. Can’t wait to share.
Here is what I consider more of a drawing than a doodle…
This is just about the quality of drawings I wanna fill this sketchbook with. They seem to have the same feel as my Prismacolor marker busts, which I love. The technique is similar. I scribble some light lines (2H is perfect for this) and find some sort of form in the chaos. I start to darken the shadow areas, being careful not to go too dark too fast. I tried to use the white pencil, in this case a Verithin by Prismacolor, as soon as I could so I didn’t accidentally go over the light areas because toned surface 101; graphite and white don’t like each other.
I started another drawing using a Derwent Chinese white pencil and I like it way better. I wouldn’t recommend the Verithins. I just couldn’t find anything else at the time.
