Introducing my obsession. If you have read my most recent post, you know that my latest obsession is a new style I have developed. Here are some photos of the different stages of this style:
(First, the finished product)
Alright, let’s get started.
Pencil: this is the three-part phase in which I sketch the skeleton, outline the body roughly, and make the first lines of the hair and clothes. Also, I make guidelines on the face, to help me with the placement of the eyes, nose, and mouth.
Pen: I outline the final lines here. This is where the drawing starts to become more defined, and easily the most intimidating phase. I also draw the face and add eyelashes. As a side note, anything that isn’t added in phase two doesn’t end up in the final product.
Color: this is my favorite phase. If any leftover pencil lines haven’t been erased in phase two, I erase them now. And I color in the outlines, hence the name. I have used colored pencils to this point, but am planning on trying out watercolor.
