Blonde Hair Girl - Colored pencil drawing

in art •  last month

Materials: Chalk-pastel coloring pencils, Charcoal Black Medium, Charcoal Black Medium Dark
Strathmore Bristol 300, Charcoal Primo, uni-ball Signo

Music: Black Panther Inspired Dark Angry Trap Beat By Danson



The first common mistake the beginners make is that when they're doing their initial sketch using graphite they just do it a bit too dark and the problem with this is that if you have a dark initial sketch when you add colored pencil over the top especially in the lighter areas, those pencil lines will really show through. So what you want to do is use an eraser to lighten up your sketch before you add all of the colored pencils. When you're doing hair or portraits it's really important that you layer up lightly rather than going in and burnishing straight away if you burnish straight away it's hard to add layers on top and get that smooth kind of finish. The more layers in the hair you have the more sort of depth your drawing has and that's what gives it that look. It looks like lots of layers of individual hairs. When you're drawing blonde hair, blonde hair isn't yellow so you don't need to go in with really saturated vibrant colors so make sure when you're doing blonde hair you don't go in with a yellow color. Another mistake that I see people make when they using color pencils is that they use their pencils blunt and they can't fill in all of the grain at the paper it just lays on top and you have the white bit showing through so make sure you sharpen that pencil.

@vaansteam nice drawing. I can't draw pictures but I love your art. I will vote all of your posts. Thank you for share.

·

Thank you for the great support!

I'm always excited about the way you draw hair in your art. You can tell that it's one of your strong points, as you say, it's good to work in layers in order to give it realism and make it look the best it can be. I think it would be fun to see your first drawings sometime to see the change and improvement! :)

·

Ahaha yeah my first drawing the hair was horrible. I always look at my drawing to see where I need to improve. My weakness is coloring. It’s not where I wanted to be yet.

Hello how are you? I am surprised this really I am very beautiful, it is like seeing the girl live also the model is very beautiful and you with your talent plasmas in a role as its beauty

You give a little tutorial some beginners, you're great!

Greetings from Venezuela

·

·

That’s really nice of you to say!

Wow so wonderful art ! The girl is looking so pretty and beautiful specially her leap, eyes and hair. I like your art all time that really awesome.

·

You’re always so sweet and nice Thank you!

Hi Vannsteam! Do you do watercolors? It's become my new hobby! I never knew that I would enjoy so much! You have certainly inspired me to want to draw, so thank you! I'm not good but this is my first one of peony flowers.IMG_4315.jpg

·

That’s very beautiful! I haven’t tried watercolor yet. But I’m thinking of giving it a try soon since you make it look so good 😊

·
·

Ohh, that's so sweet of you to say that. I have no clue what I'm doing but I'm obsessing to become better and better everyday! :)

I must say you are very good in sketching because it seems so real like 3d sketching you're sketching is very impressive and another thing which you pointed out the silly mistake which is generally happens this is real comment from my perspectives because i am a lover sketching the reason is my girlfriends makes awesome sketches @vaansteam

·

Thank you for taking the time to write this. You should do some sketching yourself. That will be interesting to see :))

WOW I really love your drawing, it is one of the best I've seen in terms of realism using colored pencils, I love drawing, I hope some day to draw and color like you, while that happens I can take a couple of tips from your video, Excellent work .. !! Greethings @vaansteam

·

I didn’t take too long on this drawing. I happy that you think it’s one of the best you’ve ever seen :) means a lot!

Wow! It's amazing!

You know, I have a dream to have a portrait like this. It's not a huge dream and it is easy to be realized. But still... Every time when I see an artist drawing a portrait of someone, I take a few minutes to admire the process. But I get so shy to ask to draw a portrait of me. Hmm... Strange, right?:) I wonder, if there is a portraitphobia 😅

Anyway, your work is brilliant! 😊

·

Ahaha I know what you mean. I never had anyone drew me before. You’re pretty, I’m sure one of these day your dream will come true. 😊

·
·

Thanks for a compliment 😊
P.S, But you can do a self-portrait, right? 😉

If I may ask sir, what's the best type of drawing materials for traditional art? I mean the colored pencil name, pastels, drawing paper,paints etc. I'll like to know sir

·

I think Prismacolor is quite good and not too expensive. And paper I always use Strathmore

HELLO!!!!
at first I thought that it was a camera taken pic.......it looks so real......
You have given some amazing tips..thank you!!!
You are just great..God has gifted you with a special talent and the most important thing is that you are also using it well.....
I wish you best of luck for your future posts....

·

I’m very happy you think so. I’ll do my best. thanks for the support!

·
·

welcome.........strive hard to achieve whatever you want...
STAY BLESSED

Amazing I love your drawings seem so real they are like a picture but you can see every detail better

I loved the way in which the hair looks very soft

·

Ahaha thanks for the awesome compliment

Hello Vaan, and I have commented on another post but I repeat it again, I like and I do not get the texture of the hair as you do jajajajajaja, I love how it is, but I am very stubborn and will continue to try, congratulate you on your new drawing and classes You leave us in each post, are very grateful and you instructive, good weekend and enjoy.

·

Thank you for commenting again. The hair can be tricky but once you get it. It’s super easy to do. Don’t give up. Have a nice weekend my friend!

·
·

Thank you for your teachings Vaan, and I will not give up I'm very stubborn and I'll get it. Good weekend to you, too.

WOW...Cool song bro!

·

You always have the best meme

Beautiful I love the step by step of this looks so real you also colored some beautiful eyes that combine very well with your hair looks so perfect

·

Thank you for the compliment. I’m very happy you think so

That is beautiful

With such talent, you are the one who should be receiving prizes, instead of giving them. I can see you have trained your hand and eye over countless hours, for you are able to translate what you see in your mind onto the paper/canvas, without having to constantly re-draw.

·

Yeah I’ve been giving away since I started but the compliment and comment on here is rewarding for me not the money

So beautiful blonde hair girl. She is looking amazing. I appreciate your brilliant drawing.

·

I’m glad you like it :)

Beautiful work. Amazing technique. Thank you for posting ORIGINAL content.

I still do not do portraits, but I encourage every time I see his drawings. I will take into account the use of the colors with a tip (I don't usually chop them often). Maybe that's why I don't turn out so well. Greetings and I'll be waiting for your next job.
