The Universe Portrait Art - How to Enhance Coloring Skills.

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



Something that I think a lot of people will benefit from and that is working with portraits. Portraits is another really delicate subject to choose colors for and I see the same mistakes over and over again when I see people coloring portraits. In this picture, I wanted to focus on the skin tones. One of the major mistakes that people will make when trying to color a portrait is that they choose colors that they think are representative in tones and the problem is they end up limiting their colors dynamics because they're afraid to choose the right colors. In this drawing, I have this really bright yellow color, that a lot of people would be too fearful to lay down on to their drawing and I know how intimidating it can be because once you draw something and it takes you all that time when you're working with a very unforgivable medium like markers or colored pencils it can be kind of scary laying down the right colors so you should create a color palette beforehand. You can prepare yourself knowing that the color you're putting down is the correct color even if it doesn't look right at first glance you can see in this drawing, the color yellow is really bright on the highlights of her nose around her eye. It's really really important to make sure that you get those colors right to make the skin tone look real. The other colors that people might not choose right away are this orange color it's pretty bright orange and you can see this girl has orange reflecting on her skin and then also the shadows this is where I think people lose the most confidence when it comes to coloring a portrait, they are scared of adding real color and real depth to their shadows when they're doing a portrait. Her left hand has really dark shadow and this is where you get this dark brownish tan color and then this slightly brighter brown color. That is why developing the color palette before moving on to the coloring process really helps because you can choose the right color.

Thank you so much @graciaahh :)

Oh since i have been drawing only with graphite portraits myself, i really respect your skill with this! I have made only one color portrait in my carrier, It is so hard, all kudos to you, awesome!

·

Colors are quite hard and take longer to draw but I'm loving it. It's really rewarding when done. :)

·
·

+++i agree. Awesome result!

·

Hi there @edgarsart 😁 nice to see you here bro!

Art speaks where words are unable to explain

Another intelligent art work from @vaansteam this is wonderful piece, I love The Star dust effect you illustrated on the hair and around the body, I love the time you took to address the chappy feel on the upper lip, it's obvious she's putting on a leather material when you u know how to blend colors and giving regards to light reflections it all make sense boss, hope to make art like this when I finally get my hands on my tools again.

·

Thank you much @kenn24 but It could been better. Glad you love it :)

Amazing art....The girl looks so beautiful. Her eyes, lip and hairs are perfect. I appreciate your colouring effect. After all love your creativity.

·

Still trying to improve my technique. Thank you 😊

This looks amazing! Never get bored with your posts! How much is your set of coloring pencils? I want to buy it as a gift for my friend’s birthday

·

For set of 60 is about $85 on Amazon

·
·

Thank you a lot!

You gave me a reward for being a troll? Haha...

I really like the blend of colours on this one. Very impressive to the eye!

·

Ahaha I don’t mind. Thanks for always supporting me :)

Thank you Artzone

The portrait is impeccable as always, this time, I adore the details of the white dots, as if it were a galaxy. In addition to that the girl looks super beautiful and realistic. An excellent job as usual.

·

Hello @gustavoadolfodca thank you for the awesome feedback :) as always, really appreciate it!

I love how you have added dots around the face! The hazy effect behind definitely creates a starry effect. And no doubt the portrait is amazing :) Great job once again!

·

Thank you @aishwarya I was trying to add that galaxy effect looks. :)

·
·

And you successfully have! :)

this is a great piece. the colors really pop, and your skill with the accuracy of the drawing itself is really on display. video is done really well...look forward to seeing more of your work.

·

Thank You. I really appreciate the feedback! 😊

Hello Vaan, very good portrait you have chosen join very successful colors, I do not think I would have taken them, for the same reason you explain, for the fear of not hitting on that color fame, and you're right you have to see how they combine and not have that fear that makes us wrong , but once again you've got a great picture. Thank you for sharing.

·

We must do the thing we think we cannot do, only then we can improve. :) Thank you so much!

I like the way her eyes sparkle and you have added sparkles elsewhere; a very cheerful drawing indeed!

·

Yeah I wanted to be a cheerful drawing ahaha

Oh my! This is so Amaazziinngg! 💕
I would really love to draw it! Keep up the Great work. Woooooooooooo Cheers! 🍺

·

I will! Thank you for the compliment!
