Last week in the Visual Development class at my school I had the chance to create a fun demonstration. One of my students suggested that I come up with a fairy so I did. I started with a soft lead graphite pencil and sketched out the concept. Next I went straight to a fine point black line pen and committed to the image.
This evening I picked up the drawing and worked it to another level by shading it with blue pencil as an example of how to handle tonal values and enhance the composition.
This was great fun. I enjoyed coming up with this little gal. Maybe we'll see her again someday.
