Rottweiler - Work In Progress - 2
Here's another update to the Abby Portrait. I'm continuing to use the same pallet as I did in the last post.
Abby seems to be coming along nicely, I'm going to start working on the mouth next.
As you can see I am continuing to draw in the color on the contour drawing. I like finishing each little square inch as I go because that way I don't loose the contour drawing. I also like working this way to keep me from being bored. Every little square inch that is complete makes feel like I accomplished something even if I only work for a few minutes on the drawing. Colored pencil can take quite some time to complete, some times up to 150 hours for one drawing. If I finish one square inch at a time I have at least completed something, LOL. As far as I'm concerned, there is really no right or wrong way to do it. I know there are purists who think it's better to work on the drawing as a whole but..... I just don't do it that way and that doesn't mean it's the wrong way to do it.
I know I may seem like I am rambling regarding this issue but I have to say I have had more than a few people try to tell me that drawing in the fashion I do isn't the correct way to do it. My answer to that controversy is..... as long as the end result is finished and looks correct who cares what I did to get to that finished product. We all have our own way to "skin the cat" as they say.
If you have any questions by all means speak up...... And most of all Keep Scribbling!!
