Re: Chess - bold idea, but I'm keen to do it ~ WIP


hope it's not an epic fail.....these "wooden lines" drove me mad.
It looks much better on photo, than on paper, IMHO.
I'm in agitation to move to bishop. The head will be quite a challenge

The bishop looks complicated. Take your time and enjoy the colouring experience one piece at a time.

You know, however this turns out, it can't ever ben an epic fail. Just watching the process is very interesting to me. Fascinating actually.

I agree with Vena though, enjoy yourself because as we on-look, we are

Re: Chess - bold idea, but I'm keen to do it ~ WIP

Vena, PermieW, thank you for inspiring words

I'm stuck with bishop's head, the dark areas. I just can't decide with a basic colour. Seems to be something violet with grey or light brown. Violet 160 appeared to be too saturated. May be the fact that I'm working in the evening without natural daylight plays great role.
Would you please suggest some combinations from my FC colour-chart, or may be Lyra Polycolour, or KIN. Frankly, FC is preferable

Re: Chess - bold idea, but I'm keen to do it ~ WIP

well, it is interesting, but according to "Paint", the head of bishop really has more brownish&beige palette than violete...I need to check my colour perception urgently Still thinking about colour for lightest area (the 5th drawn line from the top). FC 103 is too light for white paper.

I'm going to to add
FC:
146
Lyra:
030
032
035
046

Feci quod potui faciant meliora potentes
well, better safe, than sorry
The head is not as light and transparent as I wanted it to be (I'm lack with experience of drawing transparent objects), but it looks quite nice from my sight. Yet, it is not as brown, as it may have been. Afraid to use kneaded eraser more, as I like the colour transitions. What I should put my attention to, is that the body should be more intensive in colours. Will keep this in mind.

(thread starts to transform to my diary )

Re: Chess - bold idea, but I'm keen to do it ~ WIP

I have a question for you. So many instructors (I realize there's no one method, I'm just curious) suggest working from background to foreground. So what made you decide to start with the pieces? I'm just in the process of taking lessons so I was just wondering what made you decide to work from the front to the back? Is it a personal preference?

And I forgot to mention, I think that the addition of your new Lyra pencils was a good idea. It seems like you got those colors on the bishop just right.

It was a personal preference. I just knew, that it will be easier for me to work with one piece moving to another etc. The background seems too monotonous for now (hope it is not really )
May be I did not quite get the meaning of "from background to foreground". Did you mean, that in this very drawing tutor will have suggested to start with checks and so-called wall?
Also, I'm still puzzled with background, as I don't like it dark, as on reference. But can't decide what to do with it for now. Any ideas are welcomed
BTW, for example, in my still-life drawing with jar, ball and pyramide, tutor told me to start with a ball and pyramide, and then move to jar and glass. The background was added last of all. Different schools may be?

Thank you. Another person's view is v.essential in my case.

Re: Chess - bold idea, but I'm keen to do it ~ WIP

Here comes bishooooop! Lol
I do really like it. Adding dark sepia onto top of colour seems to be sure version for darkening. And FC 102&103 work as great blenders.

Well, I don't really understand, what is wrong with my phone camera, as it 8MPs make worse shots than old 4 MPs ordinary digital device...though settings show the best quality.
Promice to make the final shot with a good device. Moving to castle (rook). My adorable blue shades

In all likelihood, yes, that is probably it.

Re: Chess - bold idea, but I'm keen to do it ~ WIP

Merry Christmas!
here is another stage with a castle (rook). I did really appriciate the good quality pencils. Layers come smooth and light colours really overlap dark ones.

Well. Next is knight and I'm puzzled again. It's head seems homogeneous in colour. Just one shade of green. What do you think about it?

I'd also would like to consult about FC greens. 166 and 171 seem too similar even on my "live" chart, that I've once made in shop (the list is stored in dark close box. So, lightfastness is inmaterial in this case). I've got 171, so may be 166 is not critical to get? next to 161, 162 and 163. I've got 163. Are others so important? Well, I'm not a portrait-painter, nor a photo-realist. And I've bought plenty of muted greens. Almost all of them.
And the last about red. Which of reds is the reddest red of all?

Hi everyone.
Here is next stage. I take a pause, to think over the knight. Whether it needs some upgrade or not....

Coming along nicely. Maybe you should leave the pawn on the right out so as to give enough paper for framing. Have you given thought to the background?

Vena, that's great idea about last pawn. I did not ever think about it. But it's really wonderful propose.
Background is my everyday nightmare. I think on it day and night and don't know what to do. May be KIN magic will do this job for me . Haven't decided yet.
