Deluge by pbird12 Deluge by pbird12
The raindrops are over :dance:

This was fun and I'm quite pleased overall with it.

Materials this time:
A4 Mellotex (THE best paper EVER) the image is about an inch and a half shorter than A4.
Graphite (wooden, H, 2B, 4B and 5B; lead holder 2B)
Erasers
Blue Tac
Time: About 18 hours or thereabouts.

Print available in my shop - www.etsy.com/shop/BrighteyesAr…

So, this is an unblended drawing for the most part, I wanted to have a texture difference for the raindrops and the out of focus shoulder and background. I think it worked okay.

Thank you to anyone who takes a look :blowkiss:

This is fantastic, and I love the skin and rain drops - it gives the drawing such a wonderful texture. I'll be sure to give your technique a little go if I can find the time.

May I ask you what Blue Tac is? I've never heard of it before :)
Reply
:iconpbird12:
pbird12 Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Thank you very much :hug: Sure you can ask :) It's just poster putty, I use it a bit like a kneaded eraser, but it's tacky so you don't need to drag it on your paper, the graphite lifts right off by just touching it. The brand name of blue tac is bostik and is a UK product I think. I hope that helps :)
