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.





Almost Complete


This is how far I got on Thursday. With having this color combination it’s a little tricky to fill in all the shapes.

The shades are different in every shape. No two colors the same next to each other. Maybe similar, but a different tone to create the picture.

I’m thinking I should finish this either tonight or early in the morning next time I draw. No tension put onto the paper or the art won’t create the way it’s suppose to. Take deep breaths and slowly over time each shape will be filled in.

A long game of patience, to be honest making art helps me with my everyday to day life. The patience it takes to create art you realise how important patience is. At times I feel like getting angry, but then I remember “patience” Dont give up.

With what I have colored in, what do you see so far? Has your previous guess changed from your last?
