:) Thanks Nat, it was fun with the colours on this, not especially realistic this time, but I guess that's okay too :D

I think it is realistic! Just has a few fantasy elements, that's all.

I'm pretty fine! :D
There's just so much going on in "real life" that I spend less time on DA :XD:
I feel a bit bad, because I hardly ever leave a comment... though I have a look at everything! :)

How are you doing?

I'm currently working on something on hot pressed too... I like it so far the texture is way different. Your drawing turned out very nice I love the colors you've used and the eyes are fantastic! :D

It is so far... I'm kinda stuck on the background right now... I don't like doing the fuzzy out of focus areas in colored pencil. To me they just don't ever look right.

You're so welcome dear :D

is there much difference between hotpressed and coldpressed paper?
Reply
:iconpbird12:
pbird12 Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Hi, yeah there really is. Hot pressed is nice and smooth, no bumps or texture but cold pressed has loads, so it looks pretty different :)

oh ok thank you I both a molskine watercolor sketchbook I think its cold pressed hope it doesn't ruin my drawings when I start this sketchbook
Reply
:iconpbird12:
pbird12 Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
I'm sure it won't ruin them, cold pressed can make a really interesting texture in a drawing, it has a quality all of it's own :)
