here’s that color tutorial some of you have been asking for! this is super wordy, but I promise everything I wrote is important (and I could write more, color theory is so complicated man) sorry for the terrible design, believe me the graphic design side of me is cringing too
I couldn’t even include all of the reference boards this blog contains on this photoset. That’s right! There’s EVEN MORE! There are pages and pages of them! It is an inspiration treasure trove! Bookmark this link! Fill your life with inspiration!
Once I get a car I’m going to do a Saturday carpool from LA to Encinitas if anyone wants to go figure drawing with me. Give me a heads up and I’ll get you started on how we use the pencils. It took me 6 months to get used to them. The pencils if you get a new one and new at sharpening take 30 minutes. I got it down to 10-15 mins after a year of doing this. Pencils require a light touch, if your heavy handed your going to break your pencil.
The pencils are sharpened a certain way to get you used to handling the delicate touch of a paintbrush. So you don’t learn how to draw proficiently but not have the hand dexterity for a paintbrush and have to spend an extra two years training your hand. Helps expedient the process but makes it difficult to new students. Not only are you learning to draw, your training your hands dexterity as well.
Redid a post by fucktonofanatomyreferencesreborn with sources because they never source anything and I don’t want to reblog that post because I don’t want to support blogs who don’t give credit to people
(No, stating that the art is ~not yours~ and ~came from elsewhere~ IS NOT PROPER CREDIT. Many of these have usernames and such on them but not every single one and you still ought to link back to the specific piece)
I couldn’t source the last one so I didn’t include it.
