I love your drawings. How do you do them (what medium, tools, …)?
I’m actually just getting back into drawing after an eight year hiatus. At the moment I’m trying to do a little illustration each month to complement a short story I write.
In general I use a 3H pencil to outline whatever it is I want to draw. The using an eraser and a so-sharp-you-can-cut-yourself H pencil I sharpen the sketch. Finally I use a mixture of 2B and other effects to give shadow/smoke etc.
Sometimes instead of using the 2B pencil I use the finest graphics pen I can to go over the H outline. On other occasions I do the whole process then add shadow with a graphics pen which gives a good 3D feel (not real example on here yet).
Finally whenever I want to use colour I usually do so sparingly and usually with some form of paint. Red glass paint gives the best blood effect on drawn pictures.
I hope to get this updated more often – thanks for your comment.
That’s interesting. I used to draw with charcoal, but haven’t for the last ten years. But I was never that good. Yours look like engineering illustrations.
I never thought I’d stop designing but life kinda overtook inspiration for a bit. Back to it now though.
Only problem with super detailed pictures is they never, ever scan properly…
