Prismacolor Drawing Help??

Prismacolor Drawing Help??-hoz.jpg

I am working on a Prismacolor drawing of the image provided. I've gotten to the point where it is time to do the dirt and the clouds of dust. If anyone could give me advice on this when working with Prismacolor pencils please let me know! I'm not sure how to draw dirt and I'm not sure how to make the clouds over the thickly layered pencil behind. Help is greatly greatly appreciated!!!

I am new to color pencil and would also like to know the answer to this. Have you tried to Web search tutorial videos on this subject?

Great piece of work here!

Grateful to Jesus for everything!

I have looked up the subject many times with no luck. I decided to use chalk pastels to create the dirt. It's not turning out exactly how I planned but it's better than nothing I suppose. I didn't get any advice on here. And thank you! I've been working very hard on it!

You need to lift some of that color out of the drawing. What I would do, for instance with the shin guard, is lightly put a piece of scotch tape down where the dirt is and take something with a dull point, a ball point pen for example, and very lightly tap a few times and carefully lift the tape. Repeat until I get a good representation of the dirt cloud, changing the piece of tape as needed, then lightly color with the colors I'd be using for the dirt.

Be very careful with the tape and where you place it because it may damage your paper if you press too hard with the pen or put it on the paper without pencil wax already laid down. An eraser shield will help with that.

It's how I got the fuzzy dandelion seed head look in this exercise I did from a magazine:




It is possible that you've put too much pencil down to get back to a lighter color. In that case, you'd probably want to start over and draw what your eyes see (shapes) rather than what your mind "knows" is there (objects).

Otherwise it looks great so far.
