SacredWolfwhy does you artwork have to be so amazing!!!??? it is absolutely beautiful and explodes with awesome creativity and colors and amazingness!! everyone here seems to be masters of colored pencils but I can't seem to get it do you think you could give me any advice to make my coloring skills and well drawing skills better I would really appreciate it!!!

restless_dreamerAww thank you so much, I'm glad you like it! I guess the best advice I can give you is to be patient with your art, take as much time as you can on every drawing you do. Always think of the perspective and the lighting and where it’s hitting everything in your image.

I always sketch out my drawing first with a 4H pencil, then I usually color larger areas with acid free markers, then I use prismacolor colored pencils for smaller details and shading. After that I use a blending stick, kleenex, or even my finger to blend certain areas more than others. Then I use pen or fine tipped permanent makers for outlining the even more tiny details. Sometimes I go over the colored pencils again with markers to add more vibrancy and contrast.

But perhaps colored pencils aren't your specialty you know, it's always good to try other mediums to see what your the best with and get more experience. Anyway just keep practicing and you can only get better. You know I too strive to be as good as many other artists on this site, I try to always improve my art.

SacredWolfwell I don't really color my art usually but I have been lately trying to experiment and get better thank you for the tips and advice I really appreciate it :3 I don't really have lots of things to work with I mean I'd love to work with other mediums but the ones I have now are colored pencils, pencils, markers, and that's pretty much it well and when I go over to my cousins house she had paint but that's pretty much all I have and well I'm not really particular with what I use I usually just use pencils and well anything lying around lol but I don't really know for example where and when I need to use 4h pencils from regular #2 pencils I'm not experienced in artist tools if I make any sense at all but I will try and use the tips and advice you gave me to the best of my ability thank you again :3

thingythe coloring part like i can do lines of a real person and do u use a tablet or somethingy like a ms paint pad ?

restless_dreamer on December 11, 2010, 9:11:05 AM

restless_dreamer on
restless_dreamerActually I just use a mouse on a mouse pad lol, but I'm guessing it's waay easier using either of those. About the coloring I usually use three different tones/shades of one color. Meaning I make one that's the lightest, the darkest and the main color that's in between the two. Above everything else always think about where the lighting is coming from.

QueenPaigeHello! I just wanted to drop a quick note! You have gorgeous artwork with creative themes and vibrant coloring! Congratulations on being the featured artist for so long, you totally deserve it! Do you do all your art in colored pencils or digitally?

restless_dreamer on September 10, 2010, 3:15:04 PM

restless_dreamer on
restless_dreamerAww thanks, I'm glad you like it! :) And well lately I've been drawing digital stuff entirely on MS Paint, traditionally I usually use a combination of colored pencils and markers. And sometimes I make collages using cutouts from magazines, my own drawings, and permanent markers, for example my bulimic rainbow drawing/collage that for now is my avatar and profile picture.
