This is some process for my newest piece for the Supersonic Electronic Invitational show, January 3rd at Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco. Ill post the final when I have it scanned in! More to come!!!
I'm experimenting with adding different layered drawings on top of one another, so far I've only been able to master one additional layer with tracing paper. What would you recommend? When transferring a drawing/image to illustration board or bfk paper etc, what's the best method in doing so without damaging the paper or leaving indentations?
pandora's box.... so many questions >_< the wax pastels and oils, would you mind recommending a brand? I love the control with color pencils, but i'm hoping to use something with that application, but more saturation as in this piece. Could you possibly share your technique or application of solvents you've found useful? And what are you building these mediums on, as far as gesso or primer base? <3
Wow, its a lot to say. I paint on Rives bfk paper, I use Prismacolor pencils, Duo water soluble oils and caran d'ache water soluble wax pastels I don't use primers and I seal my work with matte medium. I start with color pencil, add wax pastel on top, then finish it with oils (typically)
You're gonna have to just experiment with water based mediums and see what works for you, that's kinda what I do, every piece is a new experiment. Hope this helps
Is that flesh color done with colored pencils? What colors did you use? I know that for flesh I can use dozens of colors but I'm curious as to your basic combination of color upon which the rest of the color combinations are based.
