Watercolor Practice by seandreea Watercolor Practice by seandreea
This was done with Inktense color pencils from Derwent and some watercolor pencils (since Inktense has no skin tone). I started by laying down the pencils and then adding water to them. To inhance the shadows and put details, I took color with my brush, directly from the pencil's tip. It's a new trick I read online and I gotta say I love it :D
I then added some clear pensil strokes to the hair, to add more contrast.

I kinda liked how the face and hair came out and this is why I'm submitting. I'll probably move it to scraps later.

am recunoscut tehnica folosita the moment i laid eyes on it :giggle: si mie imi place la nebunie sa folosesc creioane colorate solubile, desi cand e vorba de Derwent, Watercolor sunt mai bune decat Inktense.
conturul tipei mi se pare un pic cam ciudat in ceea ce priveste culoarea, eu as fi ales acelasi violet folosit pentru fusta... cred. i also like the spatter effect :nod:

In ce sens mai bune? Mie mi se pare doar ca sunt mai intense. Oricum eu le-as folosi in combinatie cu acuarele normale. In plus, pentru tehnica de a lua culaore de pe creion ar merge mai bune cele fara lemn, dar sunt foarte scumpe >.<
Conturul e de fapt mina de creion verde (care se poate sterge) pe care il folosesc uneori sa desenez. Nu am mait trasat alta linie curata, fiind doar un exercitiu ^^;
Ma bucur ca iti place :hug:

ca sa ma explic: sunt mai bune in sensul ca sunt mai solubike, la Inktense raman in continuare urme ale liniilor lasate de creion, pe cand la Watercolor ele se estompeaza.
anyway, desi imi plac foarte mult, toata povestea asta cu creioane colorate solubile mi se pare un pic snobbish, after all poti obtine rezultate asemanatoare daca amesteci the right watercolors :nod

pe mine ma intriga si imi place sa ma joc cu ele :P
Eu nu am inktense - erau ale unei prietene. Dar am wateroclor de la koh-i-noor si mi se par foarte bune. Le-am luat pentru ca sunt moi, nu sa le folosesc cu apa.
Acum as vrea sa-mi iau de la Derwent ori colorsoft ori artists si inca nu m-am hotarat...

eu recomand Artist, pentru ca poti sa le stergi cu radiera (well, nu in totalitate), pe cand Colorsoft make a big mess. si nu stiu, parca si pe hartie se comporta mai bine.

multumesc de sfat - la cat de moi si cat de bine se combina (cand faci mai multe straturi), care ti se par mai bune?

ok, i did a quick doodle session and here are the results:
i was wrong, Colorsoft sunt mai bune in terms of combining colors, spre deosebire de Artist, care sunt pretty much your average crayons. however, la Colorsoft (si la mai toate, de fapt) iti recomand sa faci trecerea de la o culoare inchisa la una deschisa when you mix them (adica deseneaza mai intai partea intunecata and then overlap the brighter color a bit when moving to the next part... hope that makes sense ;P).
ar mai fi Pastel, pe care nu le recomand pentru ca sunt foarte aspre si cam zgarie hartia, si Studio, care sunt un fel de Artist cu ceva in plus (can't figure out what though :hmm:).

so there's your Derwent Pencils in a nutshell. iti urez multa bafta :D

Studio sunt foarte tari.Pastel nu-mi plac pentru ca sunt PREA moi (da, sunt pretentioasa :P ) - ies prea intense pe hartie si apoi se iau, nu pot face detalii, etc.
Deci cred ca raman la colorsoft, deocamdata 36.
Multumesc mult de tot de ajutor - eu am cat un creion din fiecare si nu este concludent.
