Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

Really like your colorful work! Nice to see the layering info on the colors as well.

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

No scanned image today, just a few thoughts:
1. I've found out that colored pencils suit me. So I will stay with this medium.
2. Somehow I like to combine colours with ink drawings.
3. I like to draw out of my imagination. That doesn't mean however that I do not care for proportions or anatomic correctness.
4. which means: practise drawing, practise drawing!
5. Me and colours aren't enemies anymore (There was a time when this was the case), but relations could still be put on a higher level. Which means: practise mixing colours!
6. I've got a dream: doing illustrations for children's books. As I like to write stories, one not too far off goal could be: Write a story around a piece / create a piece for a story; put both in a document which then is uploaded either on my webpage or on Scribd (or both).
Last thought: OMG, did I really write that?!

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

Ulla it is so great to hear you are feeling so much more confident in your art and using coloured pencils. It is so nice when you find a medium you are happy with. There is always more to learn but as you said it all just takes practice, and that's the fun bit anyway. You go girl

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

They are very suitable for illustration - if you look on my blog you'll see lots of illustrations I've done for books for my grandson - the tag 'design' or illustration will find the posts (you'll need to scroll down a bit to get to the book illustrations) and I also created a page with some on.

Raymond Briggs used coloured pencil beautifully in his illustrations for The Snowman, Father Christmas, Where the Wind Blows, Ethel and Ernest, The Bear etc

Go for it! I'd like to see what you do with the illustrations

Thank you for the links to your blog - I followed them and noticed that this is a blog I've already subscribed to! Nice to meet you here on WetCanvas! Thanks also for mentioning Raymond Briggs - I'll google him on the spot.

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

I'm looking forward to seeing you ilustrate your own story or write a story based on one of your pieces. Your drawings always look like snapshots from worlds with a lot of potential, the blue snake for example.

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

Well, before doing that I will have to do more figure drawing. There's one fascinating place in the internet, called www.posemaniacs.com and they have all kinds of poses. You can even move them with your mouse!
Here's what I did yesterday (10 minutes - it was really a quick sketch). Forget the heads, I'll definitely have to practise drawing heads as well!

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

posemaniacs is a great ref site. I have used it often. Really should get into the practice of visiting there more often. You did a great job.

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

The idea of drawing humans is to me so well done.

Re: Ulla's Adventures with Coloured Pencils

Thank you, Debbie, Annie and Jacquip! I am not good at drawing the human figure (including the face), but I see some progress when I practise it. Humans are not my favorite subject so I have to convince myself somehow that it is necessary.
