I would love to see you draw sometime! The pencil work is really aggressive where theres detail and super soft where theres solid color. I know you use water color pencils but do you go over with water after having drawn out your design? It seems like you do, but I'm just asking. Thank you for making beautiful work!

well,usually no.I dont do brushwork with the watercolor pencils,i blend using a blending pencil,almost all the times when doing a portrait i am working skin texture and details as a basis,then i apply the color layers and start the shading,covering partially the original skin texture,but its always somehow apparent.
I love the skin texture.It takes too much time to build but i think its worthing.
Thank you Noah for the support and your thoughtful comment!:iconplzhug:

Well thank you very much.. That was actually in a way reassuring since I never have any idea what i'm doing when i work with the watercolor pencils and your style to mine is something similar and it looks like it works. You of course do it better than I do and we'll always have different styles in part, but they are kind of alike.. Thank you for the reply! You do some awesome work

This is so amazing! You are such a great artist :) How long have you been drawing for? I would love to one day be as good... I've bought water colour pencils to practice with, but I don't have to control needed to pull off a realistic piece like this :/

You're most welcome! Haha fair enough, that is a lot of practice :) I've always loved to draw, but have only started taking the practice of art more seriously these past couple of years. Let's hope so :P I shall try my best lol
Thanks for your reply! You definitely deserve a watch! :D

out of curiosity, how big was this portrait?
Reply

XRlS Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
its not very big dear,its A4 size.But i ll give you a hint if you are interested in realistic drawing.The more space you have available,the more details you can fit into it.If you consider A4 as a small size then you need to make a comparison according to your subject ;) I have managed to fit into A4 1 eye,half a nose and the half of a pair of lips:giggle:
Meaning there was enough room for details :)
Now if i was drawing the same ref into a canvas 1m it would be much more detailed.Understand?You always need to compare your ref to the size of your paper/canvas.
