I’ve finally taken the leap and tried out the colored pencil medium. I looked up a couple of tutorials and started with something small, the nose. This is Daniel Craig’s nose. It was the clearest picture I had.
I had fun doing this little exercise. I used 9 colors, well 7 really, the white and cream were used to burnish the colors together. I think my experience with black and white drawings helped with this because I was able to determine where more contrast was needed to make it more realistic. I know it’s not perfect but it was a first try and I will definitely try this again.
