I'm glad that you like the drawing,,the paper i have used its an ordinary heavy weight rough finshed,,daley rowney
Hi ernest,,,im not using tortilion,,never did actually,,will give it a go as i'v seen many great artist using it and talkin about it as a great tool. what i did on thsi piece is only puting layer on layer using mechanical pencil and an ordinary small painting brush. on darker area i'v used also a range of b+ pencils and graphite sticks. Hope it helped,,i will post a few more dog pics soon
Yes using it dry to blend the graphite,,as i'm doin lots of strokes next to each other,, after finishing one layer with strokes then i use the brush to blend it all,,than using putty eraser to create highlights and also 2b pencil to create dept,,then the brush again,,,then another layer of strokes,,brush,,highlights and dark lines,,and on and on this way until it comes out with a nice dept but also with highlights where its needed
That also depend on what paper u using,,this portrait the guy with the dog as on rough finished paper so there i never had any sign of shine,,the other dog (lab) is on smooth finish snow white bristol board there i did noticed the shine on some point but as i was using the brush, it did helped to prevent against it
no problem,,give it a go and if it helped than let me know,,will be happy that made ur skill better with an advice
there isnt any specific name for the pic,,the guy is my friend and this piece is basicly a commission for him. did put in this drawing all what i do in other drawings as well. Thank you for the comment,,im very glad that you like it
thank you guys
