I now know I can color-sketch legs….but the question is….Can I color-sketch faces?
So, I opened up by External Hard Drive (where I store all my digital pics) and looked for a picture of my son to draw.
I spotted one that I think I can handle:
- has good color (other than the shorts)
- has a face (familiar face, since this is a scan of an old picture, it doesn’t have all the detail of a digital print)
- Color sketch skin tone
The skin tone I had to figure out…. Used the following pencils
- very light pink
I’m getting more relaxed with my sketching….I was told that it’s best to use the picture as a model, but to not feel like I have to replicate it exactly. This has free'd me up to work with the pencils in a way that I can figure out where I should place the shadows as the drawing unfolds as opposed to where they are in the instant of the shot. Does that make sense?
