I just finished a new colored pencil drawing that I worked really hard on, called Escape. I’m gonna show you the process of how I do a colored pencil drawing!
I started it using basic shapes, and sketched out the basic pose, like my dad is always telling me to do:
So, moving on…
In this one I cleaned it up, took away all those lines and added a few details. Now for the moment of truth…
Viola. Here it is, colored.
Yep, so you just saw the complete process of making a drawing. Fun, huh?
So a little bit about this one. I was sitting down being lazy when I thought I should draw something. So I got my paper and my art box and I sat there, thinking. Then all the sudden I got this idea, of a girl trapped behind a glass wall, and putting one hand up against the wall, wanting to get out. The hand is like, radiating a magic light, so I think the glass wall is probably a magic, invisible barrier of some kind.
If you look at her hand that’s against the glass cage (if you can tell that she’s pressing against something) it’s in front of her body, which isn’t so good. Why?
Silhouette, that’s why. My dad taught me a little about silhouette. If you imagine the drawing completely blackened like a shadow, and you can see the image clearly, it’s a good pose. It’s one of those art tricks, I hope I’m explaining it okay.
Well, it’s not too big of a deal, because the pose itself is okay. I really like the way it turned out, hope you do too!
Thanks for reading,
