Blue pencil head study

It was in 2005 while conducting a class at the Burbank Adult School that I came up with this image as a demonstration. In was an exhibition in the versatility of Col-erase blue pencils which is a traditionally staple medium in animation. It's pliable and can be used in several different ways. The technique I used here involved drawing the composition followed by a combination of smudging with blending and line drawing. To    complement the effect I used an eraser to pick out areas where light would be cast upon the subject. If you're an artist that uses a pliable medium for drawing try it some time and see the results you get.
