Smoke nude charcoal drawing with smoke creature.
I started this project to test out and play with graphs which can be found here!
This was my first attempt at creating a larger drawing with a graph.
I didn't like how this one was going and decided to go a different route.
Restarting the project I decided to use charcoal for the graph. Normally the charcoal will fade. It did not. I want to take a moment to tell you about the material I've been working with.
The paper is Strathmore bristol vellum smooth
various brushes and blending stumps
white charcoal pencils
and some broccoli salad yum
The broccoli salad is a must for this project it won't turn out without it.
After getting the grid set up I laid a nice tone down to get rid of the white of the page.
This will let me redesign most of what's on the page, not including our permanent friends.
one thing I noticed with charcoal is you have to go over it a few times to get a smooth result.
This was where I had eventually decided to call it I don't think I'll be selling this one because of the grid lines. I used compressed charcoal for the background and brushes and blending stumps to blend.
