I am very honored to be featured in the Pencil Drawing group.
Whoa!!! so GOOD!!! you are a master graphite artist. Do you use blenders or powered graphite in this piece. I sat up straighter just looking at this. :)
Thank you very much for your kind comment. I did use powered graphite on the background, which I did first. I scraped a graphite pencil, 6B I think, carefully over the paper and blended it with a cheep paint brush. I used some liquid frisket over the horns and around the edges of the bull to keep it clean. I actually got it darker than I had intended, but I like the way it ended up. I also learned that I need to be much more careful when applying the frisket. If I get it over the line, it is very hard to match the background shading later. I did the bulls breath with a kneaded rubber eraser. The rest of the drawing I did using practically every pencil I had, and some trillion blending on the horns. – Another tip; I used Post-it Label Roll around all 4 sides to keep the borders clean. If you are not familiar with that, it is a roll of paper tape with post-a-note type sticky on the back. It is great for keeping the powered graphite off the edges of my drawing. This was the first drawing that I used it on and I liked it so much that I now use it on all of my drawings, even when I don’t use powered graphite. What little graphite that gets under it is easily cleaned up with an eraser after you remove the tape.
I really appreciate you sharing this info. No I didn’t know about the post it tape. It sounds like a good idea especially on paper with a decklled edge that may be fragile. Thank you!!
You are welcome.
Amazing Ronny. I love the detail in this. Also great skills in the detail of the hot air from his mouth.
