I love the dark blue colour of this paper but it is really hard to get a good scan because of it. Not really sure why that is, but it probably is the same reason it is hard getting good scans when using black paper. Worked more on the Clydesdale, its taking a little longer than I thought it would. I'm trying not to rush this, and it takes longer trying to get as much detail as I can on the horse when its not that big of a drawing. So I have to keep sharpening the pencils, good thing I have new sharpeners or I would have to use knives to sharpen them to a point. And people don't like when I use a knife. (I'm not going to stab people [no really I'm not], I just have a bad habit of accidentally stabbing myself. That and I'm often tossing knives into the sink. Knife throwing is a good skill to have ;) )
Anyway, the colour of the paper is going to show through the coloured pencil, I don't really want to burnish the browns because I don't want a really smooth look. I actually really like how it adds some extra colour to the horse.
My eyes are going all wiggy again, so not sure what the doctors can do. Can't really give me any more steroids to try and help, so we will see what they say tomorrow if we can get a hold of someone.
I could not think of a title for this post, going to run out of colours eventually.
