Details Details Details

I will tell you what! Details are important! It takes time to see the details. It is very rare to find someone who can just sit down and at the speed of a cartoon artist re-create reality with pencils. However, if one takes the time to prepare the page and observe the reference you will be amazed as to how many details you will be able to find.

Sail Boat Update

I am beginning to see the sail boat come to life! I picked up some more color pencils. The kind that I had were harder and took twice as long to get a rich color on the page I now can get a much deeper richer color with the softer pencils. It is a slow and hard process one stroke at a time. I think that it is far more difficult to get the results that one desires than other mediums...even graphite pencils,

Here is a look at the size of the piece and the reference photo that I am using. Sorry about the lighting. I am in a different studio (my basement). I am still getting better lighting down there.

Here is some more detail of the process that I am going through in the drawing. You can see the frame of the back of the sail boat. I can not wait to get the rest of the sail boat done. Then I will be about 1/3 of the way done!
I do not think that these pics are doing any justice to the original. I will try to get better photos soon.
