More Process by theirison More Process by theirison
Here is another piece coming at you.
So far it's just colored pencil and I'm super happy with how rich it's coming out
Follow me on twitter to see more progress [link]

The paper I used is Rives bfk printmaking paper.
So far it's only prismacolor pencil, just Poppy Red on top of the paper.
Then white for the highlights and Rouge Toscan (red) for the darker values.
All nicely blending with that blending stump.
I went trough about 3 Poppy Red pencils to get that base down.
I usually would start with a watercolor background.... but I forgot, ha. seriously.
The next step is adding Water-soluble wax pastels (Caran D'Ache) on top of the color pencil.
This is a new step in my process.
The pastels are freakn amazing though, I strongly recommend using then over your pencils

I'll keep you guys posted on more process.
I wanted to try and do a video for this one but had to start it faster then I intended.
Soon though guys, soon!!

You seriously don't mind to give away your process? I want to try it! 
Your work it's as meticulous as hyperrealism but as creative as any surreal or pop surreal style!
I like that is so clean and abstract but still figurative.

these are all just pencils sofar + blending with a paper stum?
that's amazing

is the red base really that 'flat' (constant cover, no white bits) as it looks on that wide shot to the right?
Almost seems like you painted it there
Reply
:icontheirison:
theirison Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2011
yeah its pretty flat, its a bit less perfect when you get up on it in person, but its about as flat as you can make pencils
