Quick Up-date

I'm pretty much better now, but I probably wont start working on any projects till next week. I've had the last week off so, I've got alot of study to catch up on.
And now, since I didn't have very much sleep last night and GNW is on I'm going to go and relax.

Well, here it is at last. The colouring on "In the Garden" has begun. I can say that so far i'm pleasantly surprised by how it's going. And really enjoying it. Despite all my coloured pencils, I don't often colour my pictures. At least not my larger ones. This one nearly turned out as a graphite picture by accident.

Any ways, The colour are far more vibrant then what the photos show. And there is more detail in the shading. Also I decided to keep it on the simple side since I was colouring it and the composition wasn't allowing me to put anything in front on the gate.
At the moment i'm not well, so I wont be likely to work on it very much. But i'll do what I can.

Shadow Wolf

I have recently been inspired to do a piece called "Shadow Wolf"
I can't wait to get started. I'm going to do more of "In the Garden" first then I'll start on "Shadow Wolf." I've got the whole picture worked out in my head so it's just a matter of putting it onto paper. I thinkn it will be one I work on over a few months. I really want to get it right and make it good. I shall tell you more about it when I start doing sketches.

WIP: "In the Garden" is coming along very slowly. I've had to change the backround a few times. But I think i've figured something out that i'm happy with.

Using Perspective

I was thinking about what to write in my next (meaning this one) blog post. I decided to post a few links on perspective that i've found useful. Perspective is, of course, drawing to a vanishing point or leading the eye. It's what gives a picture depth.

So, without further adieu here they are:

The first link deals with single point perspective. It's very basic.
The second link deals with 1, 2 and 3 point perspective. I found it very easy to follow and very useful.
The third link is an interactive site that has six different scenes for you to play around with.
The final link is very comprehensive. It deals not only with 1, 2 and 3 point perspective, but also eye level and horizons.

Hope they prove useful to you.
