Kiss. Me (revisited) detail by XRlS Kiss. Me (revisited) detail by XRlS
Unfortunately i admit i had to revisit this :ashamed:
Why?
Because it needed a different approach concerning the warm tones,skin texture,and shading.
So i built a skin texture (which isn't an easy task with color pencils) with details around the eyes/lips/nose.
I used burnt carmines and various flesh pinks for the warm result, and i suggest you enlarge the image in order to see everything.

I remind that this is a detail from
You can make the comparison yourselves.

In case you are wondering the reason why i didn't just do this since the first time..well..i realized i had to buy 12 new colors :|

Love it. I'm learning coloured pencil drawing and this is something to aspire to.

Thank you very much Rosemary,i must admit here,your first attempt with color pencils was a great one!:iconbravoplz:
Try to scan your drawings instead of taking photos,and pls loose the watermark,this thing is hideous.Make a watermark of your own, a subtle one,if you need directions i ll send you a link.

Much love

Thanks so much for the feedback. I agree with the watermark, but really don't want others taking my hard work. I will look at making my own watermark to protect my artwork. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
I also agree with you on the scanning rather than photos. Must remember this for future posts

Hello there again! :)

I am using Photoshop Elements 7,its free to DL in the web,and it was a rather light program,not too many tools i guess but i am not doing anything much in PS7 either,some cropping and contrast,thats all.So i used this link [link] to create my watermark,i found it useful,and for sure it served my purposes.
I dunno which PS you are using,i bet you can come up with all kinds of info concerning Photoshop in youtube,it just needs a little time to dedicate and you ll do it.
One more thing.
Maybe you didnt do much art through the last years,i know how it feels to live a life taken a certain path,making family and raising kids is a great (the greatest) happiness,it gives our life a special meaning and mostly the satisfaction we are one more link to the circle of life.
If you have finally made time for art (and you must know its NEVER late for that,as long as you can see,and hold your pencils/brushes) i am really happy for you,doing art is a lonely process but it can also be a very satisfactory one.
If you need anything else,pls lemme know.:cuddle:

Thank you for the feedback. I will look at the watermark idea. I have an old copy of photoshop which I will use.

I agree that family is a good use of our lives, just really looking forward to the time I can go back to the other things in life I loved when I didn't have so many pressures to life and family. Working on something new at the moment. Hope you get to see it also.

Great talking with you. Thanks for making the time to communicate!

Rosemary
