My mom had this neat "professional" drawing thing she got at a yard sale and I kind of swiped it from her for curiosities sake. It has charcoal pencils (which is by far on thing I'm probably going to have to avoid for now), Markers (mostly avoid those), pencils of different "types" (like shaders, sketchers and stuff IDK the difference, but they were fun to use. I used the drawing and lining ones)
colored pencils (I have a ton but the peach color is the color I imagine her skin and not that overly yellow flesh or tan color. Granted people do how yellow undertones, but no one is THAT yellow it just never looked right. The pale pink was perfect for her hair and i added some darker pink from my own pencils. Green is a mix and her lips are a red from there but her ears and freckles that you can't see are brown that I have.)
I will try to eventually scan it, but it's on a large paper from a paper that's meant more for water colors and stuff (but I was curious and it does say you can use pencil it's just two stars instead of three) To date I think this is my best drawing and side "portrait" I always have problems with 1. head size 2. the lips 3. THE CHIN and the nose forehead curve. That MAY still be funky, but it's so far the best one I've drawn. Overall I'm proud of it considering it was a just go with it thing except me adjusting her nose two/three times.
And even though I doubt anyone would want to steal this because just WHY only I can't embarrass myself with my art and I'm putting it on my art tumblr in a bit. I own neezy and my personal world blah blah.
