: HELP!! Critiques Please?

07-20-2012, 11:51 PM


Hi! I'm looking to improve my skills with colored pencils. I've always worked with black and white, and I just can't seem to get the hang of using colored pencils.

These are some drawings (they're attached) I did with colored pencil. Any critisms? Critiques? DON"T FEEL ANY NEED TO SUGAR COAT IT. I want to build as an artist. All advice is welcome! :)

What you have done looks very good so far. Your rabbit one I would have put some color in the background to make him pop a bit more. Have you tried doing a color pencil portrait from something in real life? try doing a vase with some flowers. if you practice that a lot it will increase your skills.

seaweed4, the biggest advice I would give you right now is to draw and draw often...learn to shade with graphite and the color will come easy to you. CP is not difficult but if your drawing abilities are weak it will not make any different when you go to color. If you want some advice on drawing I am more than happy to do so!
