Re: Mini Chernobyl Wolf

I 'popped him' a bit more... he doesn't really look this bright, quite... but to get him to look nearly how the scanner is picking him up....

I took Neon Yellow , Prismacolor, and carved out the very brightest parts of his eyes... also added to any yellow toned highlights... used the Chartreuse, hot green... to make the light parts in the woods and trees behind twinkle brighter, also a Prismacolor. Then I took the Sakura Gelly Roll pen and hit teh highlights of his teeth one more time... then used the Neocolor II wax pastel, looks like a crayon.. sharpened to a tiny point and went over any highlights that may have been lost. Also used the Stabilo Black to dot head... darken chin and any other a areas that needed darkened. Thanks for looking.

Now if I put him in a glass frame, he should show through it without looking flat or drab. If I could afford museum glass, wouldn't have to brighten him quite so much.

Re: Mini Chernobyl Wolf

I alway seem to have the problem with colored pencil... do I choose which final verson looks good on line or the one in reality...? As if low light or just regular indoor light or particuarly in evening light, my pic fades away and looks flat, looses contast. The last version bumped it up , in realty, to look about like the first pic posted in the last thread. Plus his nose and face look like they are popping out at you, much more three dimensional in reality, as opposed to scanning on a scanner. I am very happy now, I can finally put away my pencils and maybe spray it. Thanks for following and the supportive comments along the way.

Re: Mini Chernobyl Wolf

Continued from last point just to show you...

Same exact pic, no changes...

On scanner, with neon coloration showing...

On my art table, daylight with a bright light over head turned on ...

Indoor, daylight, in a darker area of the house... (as would be evening indoor light)


Another benefit is on a mini , I got to use a piece of old otherwise throwaway scarp rather than going out and buying an almost 7 dollar fancy illustration board from France for just one pic...

When I spray it, it may pop a bit more in the 'scanned pic' direction even indoors... don't know yet, and I don't have anymore of my good spray yet and I sure am not using any of that horrible Brush and Pencil workable fixative on it...

Why are all of those stripey lines in the background? Because I figured I'd be cutting nearly all of that off in the final crop anyway and it wouldn't matter, just did a quickie job. Thought about going over it and doing a better job, but really not worth it. Wolf is too small for my abilities to look any better so ?? thanks for looking.

Point being, a lot of the neon is lost in the indoor pics. although it looks much more punchy indoor than my camera is showing, but you get the idea.

Plus I've noted, if I put it behind regular glass or even museum glass... it looses yet more of it's brightness and punch...

Re: Mini Chernobyl Wolf

Nope, still haven't cleaned up pencils... top of skull was too small, darkened background using Derwent Inktense Bark, plus this and that here and there.. Fur on both sides of face wasn't 'wolf like' enough... not wide enough
