Preview of my assignment for design drawing.
We had to draw using only straight horizontal and vertical lines without a ruler.
I kept thinking of bricks which reminded me of Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”. So I scaled and mapped everything then taped another sheet on top and taped it to my window, then doing it all in straight geometric lines.
College is hard and I make it harder on myself

babuboy27 asked:

How do you use colour pencil to colour skin tones?? Whenever I do it it turns out bleh... especially shading. I was told to use complementary colours to shade but sometimes the colour is too strong. ( your work.. I can't comprehend ur skill!!:))


Complimentary colors where I want more muted tones. I’ll use more than two typically, sometimes up to ten. Using darker pencils to the lighter of each until I get the effect I want. In the areas I want more vibrant I’ll leave as is, and if I want subtle more natural tones I’ll layer with a complimentary color.
Really you just have to play around with them and see what works best for you.
Hope this helps, thanks so much for the wonderful compliments :)
