ACEO Wolf.

Hello,

Here is my first colored pencil 2.5" x 3.5" that I thought would take an hour or two but wound up taking from 8AM to 2PM, but I took work in process pics also... WIP pics up in a bit. Thanks for looking.


I used STrathmore Bristol Finish , smooth surface, which was pretty stiff, and a lot like the usual illustration boards I used for colored pencil.

Scan from my cheesy office scanner. I may work on it more, not sure yet.

Re: ACEO Wolf.

Basically, just traced it on the way I usually do, with copy paper from Staples....there's my paper.. then I used an assortement of grays and blacks, stuck to Prismacolors plus a Yellow Ochra to try to make the coat pattern happen...

Re: ACEO Wolf.

Then I started adding white dots with my Sakura Gelly Roll Gel Pen.. for fur detail and little hightlights. To make a light highlight, I'd tap it with my finger before it dried so it wouldn't be bright while, did need some bright white highlights though. Then out came the Stabilo White.. but it got too smoothed looking, I thought...

Re: ACEO Wolf.

Here's the main pencils

Prismacolors:
Black, Light Umber brown, Yellow Ochra, White,
50% Cool Gray, the light one,
50% Warm gray, the darker one...
then I used my black a lot, sometimes just lightly...

The STabilos were
The orange one is actually a gray, it stays really sharp too,
White and Black

Finally there is the Sakura Gelly Roll pen. It works best on Prismacolors.. you have to get a dark paper and keep un clogging it though, it's not that easy to use. No one ever promised you a rose garden. I dont' want ppl to go buy one and think it is trouble free.

You can shade over the Sakura Gelly Roll pen marks with Prismas to shade them, but the ink has to be really dry first. I hit it with a hair dryer and that does it... or you can wait an hour.

The last two pics is one indoor and one on the scanner. That's it for now. I have many more pencils out I'm not listing, I'm only listing the ones I felt really helped, after all was said and done.

Thanks for looking.

Re: ACEO Wolf.

Here's a bigger scan. The scan makes it look gunkier than it does in reality, but my camera doesn't want to cooperate and focus on it, so it's either gunky or blurry.

Each WIP image tells more and more as you went along. Thanks for the explanation about the pencils.
