Hit DOWNLOAD IMAGE for tutorial!
I don't know how to submit these towering tutorials very well, so bear with me here. If there is something terribley wrong about it, let me know and I will do my best to fix it.
Ok, I did this many years ago so I don't quite work this way anymore and I don't like how it style bites on [link]
kind of art, shame! But, since people do keep requesting this (all three people), I figured I could throw it up for a while. Regardless of the un original style, I feel it has good information about using colored pencils on black paper and interesting ways of applying the medium. Most of the text is the original draft I had up years ago, I edited what typos I could find and added this and that for syntax. Once again, this is not how I work anymore, but I hope it helps people, truly I do!
If I have this in the wrong category, please let me know. I can't make it much smaller, so sorry about that. This isn't graphically impressive or anything, the font is ugly, the color choices bad, but...forgive me? <:3 One bonus is a new step that i found was not in the original tutorial.
The opening I had:
"In the following tutorial I will show you how I color dolphins. I use colored pencils, mostly Prismacolors, but also Verithins, Spectracolors, and Derwent. Perhaps later I will create a tutorial using other mediums, but not for now. In this tutorial, I will try say what color I am using, its serial number, and what kind of paper. An important note!!! Although I will say what strokes I am using and how I am layering, you must have at least a basic know how of colored pencil techniques to be able to correctly follow this tutorial. I will attempt to define the various terms used but if you have never used colored pencils before (coloring maps in school does not count), you should familiarize yourself with them before attempting this tutorial. Also, you cannot follow the tutorial with Crayola, Rose Art, or other such low quality pencils. Well, you can, but not if you want to achieve the same results."
I think that covers everything! Please feel free to advise me on I could better present this (graphic design aside).
Edit: I still missed a million typos. *facepalm* How come I don't see them until after uploading, despite having read through it, twice!?
