dont hate me
it was too hot to sleep so i drew something for myself for a change. =/

my scanner totally ate it though..i think it hates toned paper.




im debating on whether or not i should sell the original. i may wait awhile to "cut the cord" though. 'tis my baby =)
i think im slowly but surely developing my own colored pencil style?

Current Mood: artistic artistic

speak for yourself!

the feelings mutual Jaxx, i envy YOUR art =) *bows*
thank you very much though, i really appreciate the comment.

toned paper is tough, but i had to work with it a lot in my classes. the key is knowing that its a filler color for the "medium" tones in your art and to use white and black for highlights and shadows only. thats a toughy...cuz sometimes people will want to overdo it cuz their brain says "its blank paper, it must be colored!". thats when you shoot your brain and just draw =)

Awww, happy wolves! :) Good for you for drawing something for yourself.

I'd be so interested to see a tutorial on how you draw fur if you ever got around to it... amazing stuff. :)

im not sure if id really want to do a tutorial on the way i draw fur, mainly because its so simple that its like "well..if she can do it, i can do it to." so.. its like..what do you need me for? i may do one though, ill keep you posted. as for what i do, really i just think of it in terms of actual wuffy fur. they have a lighter undercoat and darker guard hairs. i just draw each individual hair in the direction the fur lies, layering the colors etc.

next time i do something like this ill scan a step by step. i kinda "guess as i go" anyways =P

VERY good, I'd say make some prints of it and sell those instead. Keep the original, is has emotion in it.. simply gorgeous!
