Illustration of a guitar from a slightly distorted perspective. Great idea for a gift for music loving friends or family members!

P.S.: This one was a toughie!!!

    Brilliant Work!!!
    I assume this is colored pencil?
    What drawing surface do you use?

  • thank you Terry! yes, it’s coloured pencil. I used as smooth a paper I could find here … works better with fine sharp points that i like working with.

    After thinking what a nice photo this was, I was juct about tomove on to something else when I spotted that magic word “pencil” ….. What pencils do you use? Have you any advice to offer … I’d lover to achieve such precision.

  • Thank you Dave! I use whatever coloured pencils I can lay my hands on actually … have a huge collection of them always, so I can’t specify any particular brand though I do love Caran D’Ache! And Prismacolor. And I just keep working my way past my frustrations and keep layering the colours on … :)

    Mariana is there any chance you could do a step by step demo?
    Would love to see the steps as to how you accomplish this type of work, it is just stunning!!
    Being an ex-guitar player, I have a soft spot in my heart for the instrument.

  • Thank you Terry … sorry I’ve taken so long to reply but am swamped at the moment and desperately trying to catch up!! I’ve done step-by-steps on a couple of other drawings up at my blog but I’m planning to do more … really appreciate the interest, it’s very encouraging and motivating :)

    The guitar belongs to my ex-husband who’s lead and singer in a band in Melbourne! Fortunately, he liked the drawing too :D

    THis is an amazing pencil art Mariana, I see the dificulty of it, the perspective you did it is difficult and you managed it very well.

  • Thank you Hasmig, I have to admit that I almost gave up half way when i thought I was going to lose my sigh … :) Glad I didn’t though.
