I thought you might be interested in the progress on that wyvern drawing I am doing to learn how my new graphite pencils work.
This is it after I finished the sketching part.
And then I chucked on the graphite base – didn’t have powder so I kept sharpening an old pencil. Probably gave myself lead poisoning because I forgot to use a tissue and rubbed it in with my fingers! The graphite brought out every greasy finger mark and where I have pressed through too heavy on the previous page – pity I had backtracked to a page I had skipped in my cheap and crappy project book.
Next time, I have to add some cross-hatching (not sure where it is going yet) and move on to the 2B shading.
Here is the reference picture from dragoart.com – I get step by step instructions, too.
Sorry about the bad photography!
Thanks for looking! 🙂
