Hello Citizens of The Blogosphere,
Today’s post reveals the process behind my latest creation for my One Color at A Time series. In this series, I magically bring drawings to life one color at a time. This lovely lady is named Sannah.
This piece actually started out as a sketch for one of the images in my new coloring book.
Here’s a comparison between the sketch and the coloring book illustration.
I personally love both images, but there is a softness to the sketch that is somehow lost in the final illustration. I liked the sketch so much that I decided to copy it and use it for a personal art project.
Faber- Castell Polychromos Colored Pencils
For this project, I used Faber- Castell Polychromos colored pencils. They are artist grade (expensive, but worth it) colored pencils that come in a variety of vibrant colors.
One Color at A Time
For this piece, I used a total of eight colors. As you will see, I tried to stick with variations on two basic colors, pink and blue.
Here are the colors I chose …
It’s really amazing to see the evolution of an image one color at a time. By the power of technology… you don’t just have to take my word for it, you can see it for yourself. (Oooooohhhhhhhhhh…)
I hope you enjoyed seeing my creative process. If you liked this post and want to see more installments of my One Color at a Time series, please let me know in the comments section.
