Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Work in progress..in the woods



Work in progress...off and on since 2016, no reference, graphite (mainly mechanical pencils) a3 on printer paper. Reaching the terrified things may go wrong stage...I grab Time here and there while being a stay at home Dad and MA student.
Thereís a digitally tinkered/finished version (basically I used a few multiply layers, and some texture brushes to block stuff in on my iPad) on my deviantart site.
Any advice? Critique? Or...a decent photo ref I can use for her hand and foot xD itís driving me potty.

Re: Work in progress..in the woods

This is fantastic as is, I can't wait to see the finished work.
Great details and textures on the organic matter behind her legs, so cool!
Love the little owl also.

Re: Work in progress..in the woods

Hi, nice to meet you. I've added the butt icon, please be sure to use it for any nudes. It's under the Advanced reply text box.

This is looking good. We have a Reference Image Library, where you can check to see if there's any photos of hands or feet to help you out.

There's a lot of great detail in this,I would add some darker darks, to really make it pop.

Looking forward to seeing more.

Thanks...she is wearing adornments though, so didnít think it was nude (bikini level basically.) You are right about the darks. Am struggling as to whether to apply a workable fixative now so I can layer, or wait until everything is done before layering up the graphite.

Thanks. Itís unusual for me to spend such a long time and keep returning to a drawing, so this is a departure for me.

Re: Work in progress..in the woods

The detail in background is great, looks like this will turn out well. I do agree that it would benefit from more darks.

By the way one way of getting more tooth in the paper before starting to draw is to put a coat of clear gesso on, you can get more layering that way. Applying it with a roller helps to smooth out some of the texture.

One small thing that bothers me is the left side of her nose, as I am viewing it, so her right side, if that makes sense!

Clear gesso isnít gonna work for me on printer paper (or where I can work)
But I do have a spray can of workable fixative (I also have that degas pump can one, but that always seems to make things too wet) but have never used it midway on a drawing before (I used to use hairspray at the end)

The nose...yup...too much shade, probably from when I was trying to get her facial features sorted...will take an eraser to it.

Re: Work in progress..in the woods

https://jaime9526.deviantart.com/art...Wood-731763962

Thatís the digitally Ďfinishedí version, I drew overthe top...really itís just a way to get over the Ďwhen will I finish thisí hump, but it sort of shows intent. Apparently my original is too big to upload here, and I canít resize it on iPad.

I am not sure this will be the final direction of the physical media piece, and I have no idea how to get it all as dark as that version (I duplicated the pencil drawing on multiply layers, and erased to get shading and depth as well as darkening my drawing.)

I have derwent onyx..mars...all the dark pencils, but am not sure how well itís blending and working, and donít want to mix graphite and charcoal.
