Hello my name is Scott. I’m 38 and have loved drawing for as long as I can remember. I started tattooing when I was 13. The only mediums I have ever worked with is tatto ink and pencil. I recently decided I wanted to teach myself how to work with colors. I picked colored pencil and never liked them in the past but I was never introduced to blending markers. I now love the color that come from them. I am trying to teach myself how to do 3d art but I am having a problem grasping the concept of not using black as outlines. I picked this picture in the link to work with. I am only doing the top corner of groots head just to learn because there is some nice color and textures in it. I was hoping someone could give me some tips on how the best way to do this is. I think I have the color transitions going ok, but the texture I can’t get down. I am looking for all the different shades of pencil and just am all over the place. Thank you and I am glad I found this forum.
Just the very top left of the top of his head is what I am doing. https://images.app.goo.gl/BGwY7JJbqjHFxF9j7
