UPDATE: I'm so sorry for hitting your inbox with this one again, but as I said below, my scanner sucks and I lost a load of details. But Ariel has her now and scanned her for me and it's soooo much better :happybounce: You can see the details in her face and hair now :) Thank you Ariel :heart:

I'm finally almost finished with my prizes, just one more ATC to go :dance:

This one is for :iconarielrgh: for catching my 50K kiriban. I hope you like it :fingerscrossed: The scan has wiped out some of the darkness and details because of the high contrast :( But thankfully Ariel you'll get to see them in the flesh :)

Materials for this one:
Very slightly smaller than A4 - Mellotex
Graphite
Blue Tac
Tortillion
Tissue
Eraser
Time: About 18 hours
Ref: I was kindly given permission from *May-Machin to draw this image of Ariel's choice fav.me/d1x7ai0

Many thanks for having a look
Paula :heart:

Thank you very much :aww: It's more tonal values that's been lost than anything, there is more detail in the skin in real :) Scanners aren't very good for graphite.

does the type of paper you use also have a big effect on the realism and sharpness of your drawings?
Reply
:iconpbird12:
pbird12 Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
I think the type of paper makes a huge difference. I can't get the bright white and crispness on anything other than extra smooth bristol board or mellotex. Most other papers have some tooth and are slightly yellow, I don't like that for the most part. It's harder work to blend and work with but it's worth it I think :)

I've noticed many of the best artists i've seen use that type of paper. It's extremely frustrating I try but cannot seem to get that realism in portraits, they never pop!

I have a very poor video of how I draw on this paper on my We are the massacre drawing. I don't know if that might be of some help?

If you have any questions you think I can answer, please just ask anytime :)

I am not sure whether I have commented on this yet or not, but I'm too lazy to scroll through ALL of the comments, so I'm gonna write a new comment (again?)! :XD:

Gotta say I absolutely ADORE the way you drew the focus on her eye, and made the glass and the waterdrops look so realistic. I'm totally in awe.
