I was ready to take-on colored pencil figure sketching!! So….had to get a wider selection of skin-tone colors. When I spotted these I thought they just may help.
Personally….I think the best sketch I’ve done is this one. My graphite diver that I did back in April ‘11. I think this was a break-through sketch for me and that’s why I like it so much.
Since I knew I could sketch a diver, it was time to find a new diver to try my hand with.
My Art teacher was the one that told me that there was just a tiny touch of blue in the legs….otherwise….I probably wouldn’t have noticed. Really need to work on my “observation skills”. Haha
Someone had commented that I should try to keep my pencils super sharp to help my drawings, so I bought this metal sharpener….it is THE BEST!
I like this diver picture for a lot of reasons:
- Good lighting
- Interesting composition
- No Face
