Parallelogram by pbird12 Parallelogram by pbird12
I had the urge to draw this right away before finishing my other one on the go. So, its not drawn just as well as it should be, but I had to get it onto paper :P

I got the idea when browsing through this lovely girls gallery - :iconsteffc-photography:

The reference is from the very amazing :iconmegolddust: who very kindly gave me permission to draw from her gallery. I LOVE her shots and want to draw so many of them :la:

Materials:
Graphite 2H, 2B, 4B and 6B
Faber Castell Polychromos cp's
Erasers
Ruler
Strathmore Bristol, the drawing is about 11"x8" ish
Time - about 9-10 hours

Thank you very much for taking a look :heart:

Black and white or color....:-?
This picture clearly illustrates the ambiguity of reality.
Confounds us :confused: and makes us happy because it forces us to think.
We love :heart: the way you draw her :hesitation: hair!!

God, for ever drawing I upload you upload 10. You are so fast!
If they would be bad I could understand how you do it. But they aren't bad!!! They are amazing.
I have seen something like this before and I always loved the idea. The colours you used are beautiful and very fitting and I like how they change when they overlap each other. And the hair looks great. :D

I very interesting idea with the different colors


I think you know very much about art und material...
Maybe you can explain me for how you can use 'blending stumps' right?
Reply
:iconpbird12:
pbird12 Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Thank you very much :hug:

I dont know I know very much, but I'll help if I can :nod:

Is it blending stumps or tortillions you use? They're very different in the effect they give but I use them for similar things. I use them for both blending little areas (like lips and eyes) but also for adding colour too (like pores on the skin). I keep old used ones so i can use the graphite covered part later, it works great.

Is that any help? If it's something else you'd like to ask, please do :hug:

I like the way this drawing turned out. Very creative! :nod:

Drawing inspiration from others always works for me and, as you know, drawing when being struck with inspiration is the best time. :)

Shall we expect a reference for the Draw-Along soon? :P
