Practicing Shading Techniques: Day 11

doodle phtograph

I just did a few doodles today, as I was pretty much just trying out some shading tehniques. However, I discovered that the paper I’m using just doesn’t work well with colored pencils. They just don’t meld correctly when I try to mix them. I have some other sketchbooks around somewhere, I’ll have to try them out later today.

It’s funny, I’m finding that I enjoy working with pencils and paper more than my digital methods. I keep trying to go back to my drawing tablet, but I’m having an easier time getting my ideas down on actual paper. I’ll keep up the real drawing for awhile yet, I’m sure.

Next up, trying out some different types of paper.
