I've got to tell you, this is incredible. It's true that the amount of experience and skills to do something like this is huge, but the patience is way more importante in this case haha. The amount of detail and the time you give to each part in the drawing, awesome.
That sounds good and take your time My work is going slowly, i have a bigger work in progrss and many ideas for smaller projects. I think about making a tutorial about my drybrush and graphite technique and trying to improve the speed drawing video tutorial.
I will, thank you! I hope that i get used to it like here on dA! I don't know what to put on top although i've read that i can change that later. this weekend or next week i see if i can add some speed drawing videos and a link to the group
Thanks ! I'm just looking, right now in this moment, something to draw, not sure what though. 7/8 years it's a lot, i'm a beginner. I just have a couple of drawings. Could you give me some directions... if a may ask, is it necessary to have the whole range of pencils ? Because I use graphite, just 4B and 3H, for erasing a normal rubber and the kneeded eraser, and my drawing surface it's a A5, common papper, the one u use for photocopies. Do you think that's enough? Or good? Do I need something more ?
Thanks for the answer and sorry if I spelled something wrong.
Yeah you should invest in some Derwent Pencils or whatever you can find. They'll have like 4H-9B or something in the bigger sets. I only use down to 2H cause I don't think there much point trying to go lower than that in terms of lightness. Then 7B would be the darkest i'd go with a couple of layers and blending you can get a nice black without it being too shiny, that's the problem with using darker pencils than 7B. But try them for yourself and see how it goes. Try get some mechanical pencils also they're great for details.
Erasers I have are a putty rubber , kneaded and pencil rubber. Also i''ve rubber cut up into tiny bits these are good for details too
Drawing surface I have Bristol Board paper. It's nice and very white. They've got 250 gsm so they're very good quality. If you're only practising the paper your using is fine but for proper pieces maybe look at getting better quality paper - look out for the 'gsm' !
