H2O WIPs by pbird12 H2O WIPs by pbird12
A WIP of my new drawing, I decided to photograph (badly) the tools for this one too :)

I'll add WIPs as I go to this deviation as always :nod:

Paula :heart:

UPDATE: It doesn't look like much has changed, but that background is about another 4 hours work :faint: This is a crappy scan, I'll make sure the finished drawing is scanned properly without the auto thing on :ashamed:

:) The black background is all the work of this pencil [link] in 8B and smooth paper ... nothing to it, it works every time.

Great work! I specially like the work you did in the eye area. You've achieved a great texture. Furthermore, you caught the movement of the hair perfectly and the black of the background is "real". It gives a really cool 3D look. Sometimes people is afraid to go to dark, specially when they work with pencils, and they miss the opportunity to give a wider range of values and contrast over their pieces. I like your work because you always plays with lights and contrasts and the result is really great. Keep it up Paula! =)

Please teach me how to obtain the darkness within..I mean on the background!

Sure thing :) This scan is a bit evil, I have it on auto and it changes the contrast and stuff :P I'll make it as close to real life as I can for the final one.

But for the dark background I basically do everything in here [link] it's really slow and time consuming, but it's the only way I really feel happy with it.

Give me a shout if I've missed anything :hug:

this looks awesome already! Can I ask you, how did you do the black background? When I try you can see all the pencil strokes and its all shiney and not even that dark :(

Thank you very much :aww: Sure you can ask no problem :) This scan is actually a bit off, but I've linked to a few things in my gallery telling how to get the background really dark, I hope it helps you out. You can see exactly how they look in real life here too -

This is the way I get them to look this way too, always -

Just give me a shout anytime if you want to ask anything else.

No problem at all :) You can buy the 8B just on it's own and use it with other pencils, I do it all the time :)

Tell ya what, I can't see much change other than the finger and toe prints, and in case you hadn't noticed, I think one of your little angles has nicked yer pencils.:whisper:
