Thank you, Rainy. I do like that little dog portrait. He's very lovable with those beady eyes. Great pen work.
Joe, wow, you have a new style with shading!!! Very nice. I really like this piece. It has a great pose, very intense look and you could feel the tension in his body. Nicely done.
I did a few today too.
Based on a people's artist reference book.
Pentalic 70 lb sketchbook 5.5 x 8 inch
First I sketched with pencil. Body inked with Pentel Calligraphy pocket brushpen. Hair with Chinese brush and sumi ink.
This is from landscape challenge of last month but only got around to try it out with fluid acrylic and watercolor combo today. Thanks to Sunface/Maria for photo.
This one is also from the same challenge.
Classic Cachet black sketchbook 5x7 inch
Derwent Colorsoft pencils
This one is a test of Koh I Noor Progresso woodless pencil with Shinhan colorless blender and added Derwent watercolor pencil and wash.
Still the same reference book but poor girl got mutated.
This one is for Southwest challenge. I'm following the style of Ed Mell.
This one has Colorfix black pastel ground on the 5x7 inch page Classic Cachet sketchbook.
Koh I Noor progresso woodless colored pencil
Any textured surface brings the best out of these pencils.
this one is same challenge and same pencils but without the pastel ground.
Added some fantasy elements to it. Surprisingly, I could do sgraffito with a bamboo pen on it easily.
