Hello, I was wondering if you would allow me to use this photograph as a reference for a pencil drawing? There will be no actual editing done of this deviation and referencing credit will be given to your photo. Thank you! (:
amazing! i love how you have taken the photo and added your imagination to it. some people draw my shots accurately to the smallest (and certain times useless) details, but it seems like you have said okay, there's fur here and there, let's make it stylish, let's make it look good, who cares about the kinda messed up real fur and i love it! the colors are a little greenish to me, but i have no idea what kind of choices you had. interesting decision leaving out the collar, and not the tick collar. anyway, thank you!
Thanks for taking the time to comment on this. I appreciate it. I think the greenish hue is probably a combination of my poor photographing of my picture and that the yellow colored pencil comes across as green when used on black paper. Not sure why that is but I did not use it as a base because of this. Only applying it after. Just using cream color once the base was laid in. I used light and dark purples as my base color. This was my first try at using the black paper so I really want to do more and improve my skills on the black paper. Scoob is a stunningly handsome dog and he was a great subject. Thanks once again. If you like you can see the steps that I did while working on this on the Wetcanvas forum. [link]
You are very welcome. A while back I requested permmisson to paint one of your dogs on black paper...... It was a lab but after seeing this one I would love to do it instead...... I have the black paper now so if it is okay with you, I will start on it!! Thanking you in advance and of course I would send you the link and give you credit for the ref.
Thank you! It's a simple two light setup, one soft light (a shoot-thru umbrella) at camera left/above and a hard light on the other side in the back acting as a rimlight. But saturation only depends on the postprocessing
