Very impressive! All these details are amazing.
May I ask how you drew this? I mean did you drew with charocal and then with watercolour over it or the other way around?
Reply
:iconjacopopfrang:
JacopoPfrang Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2010
Thank you! :) first of all I drew this from a photograph( wich means i had a motionless subject). I drew first the rough lines to get the proportions right using white pencils and charcoal on black paper.Then ,going more into detail, I used white watercolour to put some light into the more illuminated parts, in the end i also used a black pencil to get even more detail into it. generally I focused on one part at a time, covering the rest with paper in order to evoid rubbing it out with my elbow. Hope this may help you!

Thank you very much for your answer, it definitely helps me.
I already tried a few times to draw on black paper but the white just never was really white and it didn't look good. But I never thought about combining it with watercolour. I really have to try this out!
Thanks again.
