Today I want to show you my drawing with alcohol markers. One art materials store made a contest of drawings with theme of exotic fruits. Instead of drawing one, I decided to paint a lot of juicy exotic fruits. And this is my first post on Elegance.
First I drew the contours of the fruits with a pencil.
Then began to paint with light tones, using a yellow marker. I painted the light areas of those fruits where you can see the yellow color.
I painted all the other fruits with the main colors, ignoring the shadows and the volume. I used a wide palette of colors, because in my drawing there are many different exotic fruits: litchi, guava, carambola, jackfruit, pineapple, mangosteen, mango, coconut and others..
I painted all the remaining white places in the picture. On fruit, I gradually increased the volume, adding shadows and penumbraes. And paid attention to the details.
Finally, I maximized the shadows in the picture, separating the contours of each fruit from the others. I added reflexes on fruits to combine the whole drawing with a common color theme.
At the final stage, I enhanced the contrast of the picture by thickening the shadows and enhancing the glare. I drew glare with a white gel pen. The drawing is ready.
