cosy, ukelele

Pencil on paper, digital edit.

Completed drawing from the weekend. Busted out the coloured pencils again. I like how the shading of the grey pencil ended up resembling a heather grey texture. I wish someone would invent a decent skin-coloured pencil though. Or maybe someone has and I just haven’t found them yet. Any tips? Either way, all the ones I own just don’t cut it. Thank goodness for Photoshop and the 32-bit RGB colour scale.

    I love it. And I agree, I wish there was a good skin-coloured pencil. I've never found one either.

    P.S. loved your comment on my "groovy" post, haha πŸ˜‰

    I think the photo shop combined with the colored pencils makes for a really interesting effect.

    I love the matte effect of the photoshop in contrast to the pencil… I think it's a blessing in disguise that skin-colour is essentially none existent. Do you do commissions?

    @Claire: Definitely a blessing, I like your take on that! I've never done a commission before, but I guess if there's demand I could always start?
