Dun Horse March 1 2013  by kquint Dun Horse March 1 2013  by kquint
Ref: [link] Have to say this photo is very well done and I love the horse.

As far as my drawing goes, It does not do the horse in the photo justice but I think it turned out great. Any tips on how to use colored pencils would be great and everyoen is welcome to comment I would love to know yours thoughts on my picture.

I used PrismaColors and drawing paper.

The drawing itself is nicely done. :) You just need to deepen your colors a bit. Press a bit harder when you color it in. You can mix colors if you need to. Don't forget the mane and tail are made up of long hairs so you need to show them, and don't forget to define the muscle groups.

I have done a Colored Pencil tutorial if you're interested. Here's a link... [link]

If you need any help, feel free to ask. :D

Thanks, ya I'm a bit scared of pushing to hard lol. Not like sketch pencils, they do work differently but I took a look at your tutorial and I think I'm on the right track. Thanks! This will be a lot of help :D

My pleasure. :) You are certainly on the right track, you just need to keep going with it. You can also build up your colors in layers using small pencil strokes for the furry areas in the colors you need. Start out with the lighter colors and work your way darker. Don't be afraid, you can erase your mistakes so long as they aren't too dark. ;P I'd like to see this one if you decide to continue with it. Good luck! Most of all, have fun! You can do it!

Oh and there is a thing called a blending pencil for use with colored pencils that helps to blend the colors. I don't always use it but I have in the past. You could try that if you like.

just like a blending stump for sketch pencils? I use blending tools I just don't know how closely work I can use colored like I use with sketch.

No, the blending pencil or sometimes it's called a burnisher, is like a pencil crayon, but it is colorless. It sort of smooths out the colors to make them blend, but I find if you used more than one color on top of each other it tends to do the same sort of thing. Takes a bit of practice.

The blending stumps you would use for pencils don't really work well with colored pencils. I've tried. ;P Colored pencils do come in soft and hard leads, I guess you'd call them. The softer ones give a deeper color tone, the harder ones hold a fine point better. Good for detail work like hair or fur. I have several brands that I like to use for different purposes. Like Derwent drawing pencils in Chinese white, have a nice soft lead and the color is a nice bright white, where a Laurentien is harder and doesn't show up quite as white when you use it on colored paper. Then I have some by Koh-I-noor Progresso woodless pencils that are sort of in between.

I just sort of experiment and see which ones work best for the task at hand. Using a scrap piece of paper to see what works is helpful. That way you don't ruin your drawing.

Ya I like Derwent and Prisma. I used Derwent back in school and got some Prismas for christmas. Havn't really worked with them a lot in pictures but I love the feel when I do use them.

Beware when you use the Prismacolors. While I love the way they work, because the leads are softer so the colors are more intense, they tend to break, a lot. :( Drives me nuts when trying to sharpen them. :frustrated: So much so that I refuse to buy any more of them. Can't see the point of spending so much money for them just so I can toss them in the garbage as I sharpen them, repeatedly. I don't seem to have this trouble with any other brands. I like the Derwent and Faber Castell are very nice too. So good luck with yours. :)
