sparkle sparkle (CP) by LonnyClouser sparkle sparkle (CP) by LonnyClouser
sparkle sparkle (CP)

This was created in response to the January challenge at :icondraw-along:. The challenge was to draw a black and white photograph in color. The reference is a wonderfully expressive photograph by :iconmiss-mosh:



This month was definitely a challenge - translating black and white to color is very different than working the opposite way (graphite) and I'm not very comfortable at all with color or colored pencils.

But it was definitely a good challenge - there was frustration and then there were moments of happy surprise. Overall, I'm happy with the way this came out, but there are also areas that I wish I knew how to do better ... one day.

Materials:
Strathmore Bristol, smooth 11 x 14
Prismacolor Colored Pencils
White Gel Pen
Black Bic Pen

I think it's fantastic and great use of color. Although you say you're not comfortable with color, it doesn't show. :)

She's fantastic, she really is, I think you did a great job! Her eyes are lovely and draw you in, but I also really like how the blue in the background is echoed in the face and hair, it ties it all together. Love it :heart:

This has a nice feel to it, i think the colour choices work really well together and the intensity of her red lips give the drawing impact. You did a great job, well done :D
