Ilojleen drew a frog! 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. http://ilojleen.deviantart.com/art/Frog-441040654 Wed, 26 Mar 2014 14:29:14 -0400 Tyrion Lannister http://shadowness.com/Ilojleen/tyrion-lannister <a href="http://shadowness.com/Ilojleen/tyrion-lannister"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item9/417690/image_t6.jpg" /></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.

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.

I don't really have any favourite female GoT character, but If I had to choose, it might be her and Cersei [it'll sound weird, but I like the Queen's strong, bitchy nature :B] - size: A4 - media: Derwent Coloursoft coloured pencils [white and grey], Mars Staedtler Lumograph 8B, white gel pen, black paper - time: approx. 4h - reference photo: http://img842.imageshack.us/img842/6037/5n8h.jpg MORE INFO AND BIGGER SCAN: http://ilojleen.deviantart.com/art/Arya-Stark-Maisie-Williams-395770098 Thu, 03 Oct 2013 14:15:33 -0400 Kit Harington as Jon Snow http://shadowness.com/Ilojleen/kit-harington-as-jon-snow <a href="http://shadowness.com/Ilojleen/kit-harington-as-jon-snow"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item9/378647/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />Kit Harington as Jon Snow. One of my favourite GoT character and I can't really tell why;)) Maybe because I'm often as stubborn as Jon is? Maybe the reason is that I feel sorry for him when he's being mocked because he's a bastard? Maybe I find Jon's grumpy nature interesting [which I tried to depict in the drawing]?:D - A4, black paper - media: Derwent Coloursoft & Derwent Artists coloured pencils [white and grey], Mars Staedtler Lumograph 8B, Koh-I-Noor Polycolor black coloured pencil, white gel pen - time: 3,5h More info and a bigger scan: http://ilojleen.deviantart.com/art/Jon-Snow-Kit-Harington-399396552 Thu, 03 Oct 2013 14:15:33 -0400 Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester http://shadowness.com/Ilojleen/jensen-ackles-as-dean-winchester <a href="http://shadowness.com/Ilojleen/jensen-ackles-as-dean-winchester"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item9/375599/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />The awesome Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester, a character from a fantasy tv-show Supernatural.
