I blend (with a blending pencil) and i burnish in between numerous very thin color layers.I like to push things to the edge,thats why i exaggerate in details and colors. I alter colors to my preference, and if details are not enough then i invent some. Its like you put the human skin under a magnifying glass...does this make any sense?
my last question would be: what pencils do you use for that? I use Polychromos from Faber Castell and Caran d'ache, I think they are fantastic, but I have always have probs with the skin color... maybe because of that I prefer drawing with the grey colors on black paper. I tried about ten portraits in colored pencils on bright paper, but am totally unsatisfied with the performance, the pics look never so lively and naturally like yours.
You have just made me very happy by dedicating time in my gallery and actually see and understand a little of my art.Yes i almost always use those curly lines around lips and nose,some ppl dont like it in particular but this is (to use your words) my signature
