Love the pencils.
Wrestling with the color....but, in the true spirit of this being a sketchblog, I'm posting the failures.
color trial 1-meh
color trial 2-still meh.
I'm flogging the color to death. It needs simple, clean
watercolor Quentin Blake washes. Not my forte, but maybe the third time
will be the charm...I'll keep you posted if I give the color another go.
Thanks for letting me ramble....
...The saga continues.....
I took it to greyscale so that I could built my contrasts....and that helped me to get a handle on this piece...
Finally, I think this is passable. Or at least closer to what I wanted it to look like. Thanks for the help Jenn and Mit....the monochromatic worked. I think I've flogged this piece enough...whew! Onto the next one.
