Kanashimi 悲しみ

I recently finished this anime drawing. It was very time consuming, mostly because of the detailed hair. It has similarities with a galaxy.

Some days are just bad days, that’s all. You have to experience sadness to know happiness, not every day is going to be a good day, that’s just the way it is!

This is the sketch before coloring. I changed the color of the bow.

Namida 涙

This is a coloring-pencil illustration I made. I only used 1 color for this sketch. The original color was green. I used photo editing to change the color saturation, I then acquired the desired color. I chose the color blue because it sustained a more appropriate fitting for the theme. I took the picture while consciously choosing the lighting effect. I think it all came together well applicable as a piece of art.

Rose

This is a rose made with watercolors. It was a very relaxing process, but it also took a while. I used many different shades of pink to make this as lively as possible. In the start I used the wet on wet technique. Afterwards the paint was thiccer and I used it to make details with small brushes. I mixed some yellow into the green to make different shades here too.

Hitler.

This is the beginning of my Hitler portrait. I start by getting the proportions right. This is one of the most important steps in portrait drawing.

Here I start adding more contrast. I get darker colors by using softer pencils. I layer the color instead of drawing too hard.

These pencils are high quality and works for many types of drawing. My most used pencil is the HB. This is the most basic pencil in here and it works good for most things. Though when I started to add shadowing I went more over to 6B.

Here we see that I added the darkest colors too early and that made it more difficult to blend it with the softer lighter shadows.

When the portrait was done I was very satisfied with the realism. In my opinion it is not hard spotting the person who is drawn. I’ll have to choose this as my best drawn portrait til now. You might find the choice of person to draw very odd, but it was all part of a school project so don’t worry ;P
