how to make flesh by theirison how to make flesh by theirison
this is the image for my poster, for all my shows coming up

in a nut shell, this is how I do what I do,
I mounted thick, smooth paper on to board
then drew it on with a blue pencil
then watercolor
then colored pencil, NOT pastel, the white stick is a
woodless colored pencil

the hair, clothes and background are painted and thats self explanatory

by the way, i never use spell check.... sorry

the final is coming

Hi, I just posted a work I made using some of your advices [link] and I would really like to know your opinion.
It was really useful to see there are no boundaries between medias.

is there any reason you don't like... just paint a wax base on? Like with a wax medium? I'm just wondering... seems like a lot of work to color it instead of paint... but then again I like paints...

it would be to thick, the pencils would just scratch off the way
I have to burnish the pencil in

that makes sense. It's still crazy how you do your work. It never looks like colored pencil. It's like super uber blended.

Is the color pencil like chalk or no? I've been using prismacolor colored pencils lately and they do not blend or smear together at all. What type do you use?

im using prismacolor pencil too.
You need to get thick smooth paper (Bristol paper, Reves bfk) then lay down a wax base. So cover the whole area is a light tone with your pencil, Cream or white. Then it will be very easy to lay down color and blend it
use your fingers, a paper towel or a blending stump when you're blending

That makes sense. What does the watercolor you lay down first do?
