EDIT : this is kind of blurry unless you enlarge it so click da picture. It's not big.
Here's my response to THE PINK WAVE
that has overcome my world lately.
All over deviantART, Facebook, newspapers, PINK, PINK AND MORE PINK ! I mean, there are
other colors to celebrate love ! LOTS of awesome colors ! People who make these designs are graphists and have no excuse. Stuff is aimed at couples, right ? Well, Im in a couple and I'm very much in love. And all this pink everywhere makes me want to puke even though it's not a color I dislike.
That being said. This drawing was meant to test my new awesome Pablo Caran d'Ache colored pencils box that I got for Christmas and hadn't used yet. They feel quite different from Prismacolors - less greasy and they blend less - and I really enjoyed them. We shall be good friends. Ah also I got a new scanner (Canon Lide 120) and it's infinitely better than my old all-in-one HP printer-scanner. I had no idea it was even possible to scan without having to re-draw all the colors in afterwards
This is a not-serious-at-all drawing with no reference or effort whatsoever, but it was fun
I think it took something like two hours overall. I didn't scan the lineart because I was afraid that I wouldn't color it if I did xD
Also you guys need to teach me a way to cheat-add backgrounds behind pencil drawings like this.
