nice job Michael. way cool.
I might do one like this some day..yep..if I ever save enough for my pectoral implants, that is.
sheesh-young, talented and the physique of a cage fighter. (Im starting to hate you Mike.)
Michael, That's absolutely astounding. My wife's been checking out your work too and really likes it. And coming from her, that's a big time compliment! Not sure if I'm going to show her this one though. As Jeff said, "...young, talented and the physique of a cage fighter."
So, how do you like colored pencils? What kind did you get?
Well, the top of line of colored pencils are Caran d'Ache Luminance, but the cost is almost prohibitive, well over $300 for a set of 72. My personal choice is, well there's two I like. Prismacolor Premier are great. Very soft vibrate colors and they blend well. My other favorite is Derwent coloursoft. I like these because they are encased in a thicker wood than the Prixmacolor. They just feel better in my hand. Yet, I like the Prixmacolor's texture when applying, smooth, thick and easy.
But the bottem line is, " It's the Indian, not the arrows", as was just testified by your wonderful drawing.
There's a site that tells all about the various brands. If memory serves, it was called Colored Pencil Studio. I tried to post a link, but apparently that's a no-no here.
Wow!!! You really did nail it! I use prismacolors and love them. I can't justify paying the really big money for the top of the line pencils...prismacolors are very nice..I like the feel as they go on and in comparison are a much more affordable option. If you can do this with the cheapies I would love to see what you do with a set of prismas!
Judging from this piece I don't think you will have any problems mastering the art of blending colored pencils to a paint like appearance. You will see a HUGE difference once you get that first set of prismas. No turning back.
