Kid-Sandy - Lineart by Reborn-Chan
Kid-Sandy - Lineart
He was going to be Kid-Jack initially, but by the time I got done with the shape of the face along with the eyes I was like, "Nope, definitely Sandy." So, yeah, have some Sandy with his crazy hair! :XD:

Kid-Pitch - Lineart by Reborn-Chan
Kid-Pitch - Lineart
I got bored and decided to draw kid-Pitch! Isn't he cute?! I know he looks a little sad, but I've been convinced it's because he woke up with that hair cut and had no way to fix it. :XD:

REALISM IS NOT LIKE RIDING A BIKE! IT LIES!!!

...So, I've been kind of working my way toward doing this really spiffy character for a friend in realism and had forgotten all the hell that came with that style of art. I'm so used to sketching and such that I had forgotten all the honest to goodness work that went into it. Like the constant applying and un-applying of graphite, the shading from hell, and the knowledge that once again I am so going in blind because I thought it would be a good idea to use a half a dozen different references and their dogs to try to build an original character from scratch! I knew it would be a challenge going in but... seriously?!?!

I am determined though, I'm going to do something awesome with the Love-Child even if I have to eventually scrap what I'm doing now to make something prettier in my comfort zone.

But first!

I'm going to see if I can't make this little experiment pan out.

The bones of it doesn't look too bad, and while the shading is certainly being a nightmare I'm slowly remembering all the little tricks for working around that handicap. It's just... wow.

I suppose this is what I get for working with traditional mediums rather than just saving my money to get all the equipment and programs needed for digital art. :XD:

Go figure.

After a long break, I came back to da and realised I'd never answered a forum post you put up... >.< I typed up an answer to realise that the forum was closed and I couldn't post it! So I hope you don't mind this piece of spam, but this is what I was going to say to you ^^;

Waaah, left this comment so long without a reply... *hits self in head*

By now you've probably figured everything out on your own anyway. I'd generally recommend a HB for most sketches, or if you've got a really good idea of what you want to draw, a 2H creates a lighter line that won't show through in your final work as much (but consequently, is harder to erase or alter than HB by a little). Then I'd recommend using the rest of the B range to work in your tones and shadows.

You'll figure out how you like to do it as you go along ;) I can't think of any particularly good books off the top of my head: most books that are a general drawing course have a blurb at the start about different mediums to work with, and you can learn a lot from them. The only ones I've read that do come to mind atm would be anything by Barrington Barber. I've got several books by this author/artist and they're all worth the time (even though looking at the work they've done can be a touch intimidating/jealousy-inducing :D )

Eh, useless info, but anyway... *sneaks off again*
