Using this color scheme was a little different than what I’m used to. It was a little challenging using darker colors. Most of the tones are very similar or almost alike.

I only used a few colored pencils on this whole drawing. When I create the tone I just add white. I’ll try my best to explain. Lets say a “shape” is dark, ill grab what pencil I think is correct. Then add the amount of darkness I think is needed. Apply white over the dark area. Then add the darker color again. etc..

layer on layers.

Keep doing this till I’m satisfied with the results. Moving on to the next shape. one by one. A slow but steady process.

If the “shape” needs to be dull or light I add a tint of dark pencil and mostly white.

It’s similar to mixing paints in a way. Just using pencils. hopefully I did a good job of explaining that.

There were many guesses throughout the process of creating this, ranging from all over the place. If I could go through all the comments and gather them up, i bet you would imagine most of them in your head too. The fact you can see something means you’re using your imagination.

As always I never give away what’s going on in the drawing that’s for you to create in your mind. You create the story, all I do is create the picture. It takes nothing but a picture to think a thousand words. speechless but not.

This is a drawing of a Lion. I used black, gray and white colored pencils to create this. Interpret the picture as you imagine.

      • Definately. Yesterday only I wrote something about “never quit”. And I totally agree with the fact that we get lot of inspiration and motivation around us. We just need to utilise that.๐Ÿ™‚

      • Good for you, keep writing as much as you can. If it’s making you happy you have no reason to quit. But yes I agree with you. Everyone has bad days no matter who you are, we all need that remind of how special we are sometimes. The energy you surround yourself with is what you become. Become a positive person. Yes I agree, have a great day. Keep spreading love and happiness! ๐Ÿ™‚
