I'm satisfied with the result [although I wasn't myself if I didn't want to change a few things :D]. It was fun to use so many colours I'd not usually choose [as I draw mostly human portraits] ^^ As I'm not a big fan of Faber-Castell coloured pencils, but this time they saved my ass. I needed a bright, intense pink coloured pencil to draw a stalk and neither Koh-I-Noors nor Derwents have one... but Faber-Castells do! A4. Koh-I-Noor Polycolor, Derwent Coloursoft & Faber-Castell [pink] coloured pencils. Time: 39h.

So, last month I thought it'd be nice to draw another multicoloured work and the first thing which came to my mind were tropical frogs. While browsing, of course, frogs photos, I found this wonderful picture and decided to give it a try, but in pencils [as it's not that colourful]. And this is the result ^^ Hope you like it :) A5, Derwent Graphic pencils HB-9B, white acrylic paint; time: ~18h; ref. photo by Igor Siwanowicz. Wed, 26 Mar 2014 14:29:14 -0400 Tyrion Lannister <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister Tyrion became one of my two favourite GoT characters [the latter is Jon Snow, poor grumpy fella]: he’s intelligent, witty, and, well, we share the same kinky sense of humour :B I admire his strength in dealing with being mocked. The fate often treats him harshly, yet he’s definitely a good man, the best of Lannisters. Derwent Coloursoft coloured pencils [white and grey], Mars Staedtler Lumograph 8B, white gel pen, black A4-sized paper; time: approx. 4,5h.

BUT GUYS. It's my first serious coloured pencil portrait! :D The first attempt at drawing human face in coloured pencils took place 2 years ago and the reference photo wasn't really complicated so I don't consider it a proper coloured pencil portrait. But this one... this one was tricky! Aidan has beautiful facial features and I didn't want to screw his likeness up - I fixed his eyes, nose and mouth several times. I'm not fond of drawing curly hair, so these friggin' curls put my patience to the test :lol: The background was drawn from my imagination. I decided not to copy the background from the reference photo, but I didn't want to leave it white either. So eventually I came up with something bokeh-ish :B I hope all this was worth my effort! I mean, it turned out different than I'd envisioned, but I'm proud of myself :) A4, Derwent Coloursoft, Derwent Artists and Koh-I-Noor Polycolor coloured pencils, a white gel pen, a regular eraser, Derwent blender, Mars Staedtler Lumograph 8B, 55 hours.
