Hi! :) Your paintings are amazing, I really love them! I’m glad it cheered you up!
Hello everyone. Please excuse my ever-growing silence recently. A lot’s been changing including a house move and I’ve got myself two jobs now! It’s all very exciting but unfortunately, all my art materials are in boxes at the moment :( I can’t wait to set up a new little office in our new place and presenting you all with some new stuff!
So, no Prismacolour yet, but I did get a ton of Sharpies for my birthday. I’m not really sure what to do with them… Anyone got any suggestions for techniques that I could try out? As you can see, my guesswork on a portrait of CM Punk didn’t quite work out! (I’m going to draw more in media I’m comfortable in homage to the obscene amount of WWE I’ve watched this week!)
Ooh that’s cool, I’ll have to go and find somewhere I can try them out! Thanks for the tips, I can’t wait to try some! x
I’ve seen a lot of artists saying that when they use coloured pencils, they are using Prismacolor pencils. Are they worth investing in?
Pencil on Watercolour Paper
Initial sketch for a request. Looks pretty simple and nothing like her without the shading (weird how that happens, huh?) so it’ll be finished very soon! :)
Pencil on watercolour paper
I wish pencil scanned better…
This is my “plan” (I suppose you could call it that) for my next ink and fineliner experiment of another one of my friends. Hopefully I’ll get it finished tomorrow!
If you/someone you know would like to volunteer yourself/yourselves to be painted, let me know! They will all be experimental pieces for now, so apologies if they don’t turn out perfect!
Okay, the one on the right is more like it. It’s still not great, but at least you can see it’s black and white now!
Okay, having looked at the last image I scanned in, and the one I scanning at the moment, I think perhaps the light in my scanner is too bright? That could sound awfully silly of me, but I’m not so technologically minded and it’s the only thing that I can think of.
It’s giving my work a sepia quality to it. I guess that’s nice, but y’know, it makes it different to the stuff I want to show and if I have to send stuff to a client, it’s just not ideal. Not only that, but some of the lighter shades aren’t showing up. If I work in pencil alone, some of the marks aren’t acknowledged by the scanner at all.
Can anyone help me figure and sort this out?!
