Session #091, Work #082

 

So I purchased some Generals charcoal pencils, pan pastel with a cool palette knife like applicator, they call it a sofft tool, and some really cheap ingres pastel paper. Turns out that after working on the drawing for over an hour I figure out that I hate this paper tremendously and totally stop in disgust. So the following is what I have ended up with.

How can I improve the drawing

Luckily I was able to get far enough so I could still compare the drawing. I’m pretty happy with my accuracy of the countour.

Material Testing

42813-testing

Here I did some test of the pan pastels, it goes onto the paper nice and smooth, I can build it up really dark then easily remove it all the way down to the bare paper with an eraser. And the best thing about it is that it stays really well in one place, only the eraser picks it right off the paper.
