Materials: Charbothello chalk-pastel, Charcoal Black Medium,
Strathmore Bristol 300, Charcoal Primo, uni-ball Signo

Song Artist: Flume - Smoke & Retribution (Ekali Remix)




Creating an accurate sketch outline is definitely one of the most challenging and difficult things if not the most difficult thing about doing a drawing. I like to do like mainly the main features you know a few of the eyes nose to mouth to the top of the head bottom with the chin all of that sort of stuff just to really help get the proportions accurate. I just take it the section at a time, for example, I look at the eyes and then just the shape of the pupils I don't try to look at it as the fact that I've got to draw a whole face because that can be very overwhelming. I just look at it as shapes what shape have I got to draw what angle is this shape meant to be how does it curve how far away is it from this other points that I've got. For example with the mouth with the lips. I'm looking at that centerline and judging where the top line should go the top line of their mouth just by looking at how far away it should be from that centerline.

Real artistic work you did here. My brother does this drawing too, but the challenge we face here in the part of the world am from is lack of these equipment to make the drawing easier.

Take for example for the pencils, we hardly see varieties of pencils in my country, the most prominent ones here are the 2B, and HB. Even when we get to see the others there too expensive to get. Here is one of his work

He goes as far as getting this pencils abroad, which is really stressful for him. Great artistic Masterpiece @vaansteam. From @tobex.

·

wow such masterpiece. It's amazing your brother did this with just a few pencils color.

·

tobex, can you please make a video of your brother doing this? in time elapsed?
this just the sort or relativistic art that goes viral in a second.
if you post it on youtube, he will get a ton of followers.
and maybe some job requests.

Hi @vaansteam, once again i've been amazed at your art work. Well for me i like the details on the nose part. I wish to have a nose like this lol! It is well curve as it shows very natural. I don't know what the exact words to say it in professional way. I just followed youand resteemed this so i can be updated on your next post. The first time i saw your art is "Thanos".

·

Thank you for the followed and resteemed. You're awesome! I followed back. I hope you'll come back and check out more of my artwork. Have a blessed day!

Wow! Impressive work, truly.

I can't draw stick people right and your stuff could pass as stylized photography... I'm jealous.

·

Don't be jealous I'm sure you're very good with other things haha

Beautiful as always. Well done.

·

Thanks again @poyim

Well done, you are talented! The time lapse video is cool, and I liked how organized your drawing tools are. Keep it up!

·

Thank you. It takes some getting used to as I’m still new at making videos :D

This is original art girls

Excellent drawing, it look so alive.

·

I’m glad you think so! :)

Wow..... Speechless. Is she real, outside your mind? So gorgeous.

·

Yes she’s a real person ahaha Thank you!

I don't know how you do it but it's flawless. You capture so much emotion in your drawing. How long did it take you to draw this picture?

·

This picture took me about 4 hrs plus editing another 3.5 hrs. Thank you! :)

·
·

Wow. That’s commitment, but very rewarding when it’s done.

Damn bro I do the same method in my drawings! Usually I start with the nose, then mouth, eyes, cheeks, after that i'm just jumping all over the place haha. Your work is amazing man, keep it up!

Dear artist @vaansteam, I like your outline drawing. It seems to me, a confident artist make this sketch. And the vanishing tones are really good for dimension. light and shade make it alive

That's very nice art!! Good job!!

·
·

Thanks. I appreciate.

Wow! She is looking so beautiful. Beautiful eyes and the hat makes her smart. Really great art♥sir @vaansteam i appreciate your great creativity.

·

Thank you @mesena. I appreciate the compliment!

I liked a lot the first version with linework without the shading. That's probably because of my love for comics artwork. Your realistic approach is superb. I don't have that level of detail. I'm impressed. Well done!

·

To me, I like all form of drawing. I do like comics artwork too! I'm sure you do a great job!

Looks very lifelike, beautiful! ❤️

·

Such an awesome work of art, truly a masterpiece, am new on steemit ,and am also an artist

·

It’s good to meet other artist. Hope to see your work soon :)

Pretty girl!
I find interesting the way you describe how you work on your drawings.
I am totally the opposite! I always start with the eyes and then move to the arms, then to the ears, etc. Hehe :)
In the video, your drawings are in the same position always.
Well, I move it from here to there. I start in my room, then go to the kitchen, rest a bit, then go to the living room, come back to the kitchen, I rotate the paper, I move around it.
It is interesting knowing how other artists work.
Thanks for sharing!

·

I think any starting point is good as long as you can get the drawing proportion correctly then it will turn out great :)

Awesome potrait i must say you are good artist. You have done a great job the texture and the shades in this potrait makes it look like a real girl with a charm in her eyes. 😍

·

Thank you @tabs2405 I'm happy you think so. :)

The artwork is very beautiful and finding friends who flume hasn't been easy.
This is the finest charcoal art I've seen in a while after my time has been engrossed in understanding cubism

·

I'm happy that you think so but I'm sure there are many good artists as well! :)

·
·

Yeah. True
But i when see something good, i appreciate it

I am sure it took you a long while to get that done but it turned out to be exceptionally beautiful, I am amazed at your talent. Thanks for taking out your time to share the whole process, I hope to learn how to draw soon (I don't know how soon or how possible that is though)

·

Every art took me quite a long time but it's very rewarding. Thank you @audreybits

·
·

It takes great passion and dedication to do what you do! Looking forward to more awesome work from you.

·

Your welcome @naconc

Wow this is AMAZING. you are very talented. Keep doing this!! IT just a very beautiful portrait.

·

I will thank you @ionutrazvan1

You are very talented! Congratulations

·

Thanks for the compliment!

Great work. As an artist myself I know it is not easy drawing a head that is not placed upright especially on positioning of the features of the face.
Keep it up!

·

It's a little difficult. I will! Thank you @youngiriv

Nice work dude :o those are some fine materials need to get me some!

·

They are great. They sell it really cheap on Amazon :)

amazing!
whenever I see these speed drawing I think of how underappreciated these kind of talents are.
probably would make a fortune before the digital era.
but these days anyone can make "art" be some kind of mobile app so people don't understand the skill required to do these sketches and how amazing the result actually is.

·

You're right nowadays people can easily create art from a photo with just an app. But it's still different feeling on paper.

Very precise work. I like the choice of tinted paper which allows for adding lights as well as developing darks.

·

Your correct @kathleenscarboro tinted paper is always best to add lights and dark tone.

I must say am really short of words.... kept on looking at the portrait
Cant get my eyes off it :smile:

·

Aahah glad you like her smile!

Great and amazing Artworks! More Inspirations and Motivations to You Boss. @vaansteam

·

Thank you @artonmysleeve That is quite a compliment. I'm honored :)

·
·

Wow! Amazing artwork! Me too I thought it was a photo that is set in a grey scale using photoshop. I really liked it.

·
