THE KEYS OF YOUR HEART: Color study - Step by step + GIF

in art •  2 months ago 

Yesterday I received a rather unexpected gift from a person who tries to motivate me to leave my comfort zone. Thanks @artmedina for the box of colored pencils. Mine is the graphite and that can be clearly seen in my profile, but this gift forces me to venture on roads that I have not traveled for almost ten years. I always felt the cowardly take over me when I thought about painting. But no more ... a few minutes of having the colored pencils had already made me face a drawing. Under very good recommendations and advice I undertook a new project in earth tones.

THIS IS A GIFT GIFT

And good? Your heart has already opened. I invite you to keep watching.

MATERIALS

Colored pencils and paper.

I PRESENT THE STEP TO STEP

STEP 1

I did the first sketch with a beige base and a little brown.

STEP 2

After darkening a bit with brown, I was recommended to focus on the main parts of any face, eyes, nose and mouth.

STEP 3

Once these two focal points were finished I continued to give a bit of texture with the brown.

STEP 4

To bring a little depth and forget the flat-looking images I took the black color as a weapon. And of course, we can not forget a touch of pink tenderness on the keychain.

STEP 5

In this step the game entered the red, yellow and beige to generate certain nuances that give an aspect of life to the drawing.

FINAL PRODUCT

A purple background seemed ideal to give contrast with the warm tones of our dog.

I want to thank @OCD for always supporting my work.

The more I see it, the more I like what you did. Good thing you got the gift and more pleasure gives me if you take advantage as I see in this drawing. Motivate to discover something else that will also be good apart from graphite. Wonderful and blessed this post
