Realistic pencil drawing of hands and rosary

Posted on Jan 30, 2017 in Art Tutorials, Pencil Drawing Technique | 0 comments

My latest pencil drawing finally complete…after working on it for more or less 50 hours. This drawing is a blend of charcoal and graphite. I was able to achieve the very dark areas with charcoal and a Mars Lumograph 8B pencil. The drawing is 17 by 12 inches in size and done on Stonehenge paper. The drawing will be part of an art instructional book I am busy writing. The book will show step by step how I created this detailed art piece. Stay tuned!

Drawing eyes step by step

Posted on Dec 31, 2016 in Pencil Drawing Technique | 0 comments

Drawing eyes is one of my favorite subjects. The eyes say so much about the person’s emotion and soul. When drawing eyes, keep in mind that the iris and pupil are in most cases a perfect circle and needs to be placed at the exact position. I always draw the circles freehand by focusing on the shapes and space around the iris, in relation to the size of the iris.
Eyelashes on both upper and lower lid are clumped together and randomly spaced. Create the eyelash by flicking your pencil outwards allowing the lash to slightly curl with the end pointy and
soft.

Realistic Drawing of Old Man’s Face – Drawing Tutorial

Posted on Aug 13, 2015 in Art Tutorials, Pencil Drawing Technique, Work In Progress | 0 comments

I have been working on this drawing for quite some time using a variety of tools. The drawing is done with graphite pencils and an Ebony carbon pencil for the extreme dark parts.

I like the carbon pencils but I am still searching for a pencil that is easy to blend, yet creates a deep black and flat tone without shine. This drawing is part of an eBook I am currently writing that shows step by step how to draw.
