Hello :)! I will start by saying that I opened up my eyes to drawing just a half year ago. I started with no basic education, just took a pencil and paper and started drawing with a picture in front of me of what felt attractive to me :) I have not been drawing so many pictures up until today, but I am really starting to feel that I want to create more and more. I will start posting my drawings from the first to the one up to date here :)
Hope you like seeing my journey and becoming a better artist :)
The colourisation here is made by water-paint :) it was really hard to get the right colours and to learn how to use it, but I'm quite happy with the result considering it was the first time using it :)
2013 - 04 - 09. Estimated time three hours, using normal pencil and white paper.
2013-06-15 Took about 4 hours to complete. I'm not quite satisfied with the colouring using normal coloured pencils. The only thing I think I captured good is the eyes :)
2013-10-24 took about 2½ hours to complete. I used a normal work pencil and explored shadowing by smudging out the pencil using my fingers and highlighting with a rubber :). I'm quite satisfied with the end result, even though I wish my patience was stronger so that I could have made it more detailed.
