Raccoon - Work in Progress - 1
Well, here is a small update. I decided to put the background in first because the raccoon is so furry and the fur has to overlap the background.
The one thing I don't like about doing it this way is I really prefer to work on the animal so doing the background first tends to get boring for me. LOL
So far it is 100% colored pencil. I know I said I was going to use pastels but I don't know if I will. We'll have to wait and see how it goes.
I'm using predominantly Prismacolor colored pencils but have used one or two of the Derwent Colorsoft. When I lay down the layers on Suede board I put down the medium color first and then add the darks and lights on top of that. The size of the piece is 16" x 20 and I haven't come up with a title yet. If any of you have a good idea for a title let me know, I would appreciate the help.
If you should have any questions let me know, otherwise.... keep scribbling!
