Beautiful work Angela! You've given her a really great 'young girl' look (by lack of a better description) with your great shading on this!

3 Questions

how do you get the hair so dark?

do you scan your artworks?

Is bristol board a thick paper?

Thank you very much:blowkiss:

For this drawing, I shaded the hair with a mechanical pencil and blended with tissue, then I went over all the darkest parts with an 8B graphite pencil, blended and repeated again with the 8B.

I photograph all my drawings.

Yes, it is very thick and I use the extra smooth which is also whiter than most paper.

I am planning to go to my craft store to fins out more about bristol paper :D When you take a photo of your drawings do you crop & edit them later on the computer :)

Yes, for some reason they always look kind of pinky/orangey (not sure if it's my camera or the computer?) so I desaturate first, then I darken/brighten until they look like the original drawing .... and I crop also:nod:

Me too ^^ I hated the idea to edit at first, but Then I realized it's ok if you just make it like the original :D

I used to feel like I was cheating!!
LOL
There are some members here who edit far too much ... IMO!!
Not naming any names of course:giggle:

haha ^^ I hope I don't cheat :) But I use to have the real artwork next to me so it's as close as possible. Still the originals are more alive. Bet less is more, better to impress rather than dissapoint :D
