December Draw-Along WIPs by pbird12 December Draw-Along WIPs by pbird12
The first of my WIPs for the December :icondraw-along:

There's not a lot there yet, but I'll keep adding to this same submission as always the more I do. I've darkened this a little so you can see it, it's very pale at the moment, I'm just laying down some base layers.

WIP update: About 6 hours in now and I can't decide whether to do the snow globe in graphite or colour. Help???

FINAL WIP update - I'm guessing about 3 more hours so far and this will be the last WIP, it shouldn't take too long to finish off now. It looks very odd right now :p

I have a LOT of things on the go, so just incase anyone is waiting on a prize or drawing from me, I promise, your all on my list and I'll get there eventually :nod:

Paula :heart:

Turning out so great for a 10' work ;-)

Looking fine, All the difficult parts out the way now, doing the globe will be fun as it's not that different from how you rendered your hourglass. Looking forward to seeing it finished. I'm impressed with the time spent on it .. speed and quality :D

This is looking lovely already and wish I had time to do something seasonal. Personally I'd keep the globe all coloured but then I'm not the best person to ask as there are plenty far more qualified.

It's going to be yet another epic one. Can I have your autograph Paula? I totally admire you!

Hopefully, I will be done with this proposal nightmare by Monday, with budget and everything, and the week after, the presentation. But finishing the paperwork I will actually have time to draw... then there's also this drawing of my friends that I just have to finish before Christmas, and then comes this. :)

I just saw the finished product.. so awesome!!! You did sooo good! I have always favored colored pencils-- I can't compare any medium to it. I kind of miss them now that I think about it...

I thought of just subtle colour too, then the pretty christmas colours started shouting at me from the pencil tin :giggle: Also, heavy colour and burnishing gave the candles a waxy look that I hadn't considered before, so it went a bit extreme. Hopefully it works out .. thank you again :tighthug:

What did you decide to go with for color?

Thank you very much :) I went with good old colour pencils in the end. I'll likely add a tiny bit of white acrylic for highlights at the end too :)
