Werewolf is watching you by Exileden Werewolf is watching you by Exileden
When I'm off from commission work, though right now I don't have time for my own personal work, I'm working on pieces that I am calling them "starters". They aren't meant to be on art-to-do queue, nor to be finished straightly from the start- but ones where I take a break from working on art from my list to do, starters are pieces that I travel with, render slowly, taking like from 15mins to 1-2h to render- as well to "keep my old skills". I haven't drew in traditional media in color form for really, really long since a lot of my art works is focused on digital and pencil works projects/commission work recently. This helps me to keep up with... and of course, get some of pleasure drawing :> Or therapy.
I really miss that little enjoyment of drawing. Commission work is not the same as well my portfolio pieces where, despite are personal, but that's something I give my best that are huge pressure for me.

I call them starters. Non-prior pieces to work on, but for free time work. And there is never rush with them. Some of my best pieces... are actually coming from starters, yes, not planned nor expected ones.

I always travel with one starter to render it from time to time.



This one will be a collaboration between me and ~Quinneys. She gave me this piece to color about a year ago or more... personally, for me, I think she is the best werewolf artist that I've seen! :heart:
And this is going to be my first fully colored pencil piece... since ages.

"starters" area really good idea. You need to use your entire skillset instead of focusing on just one. Because just like language, if you don't use it you lose it.
I didn't ever really realize that until I had stopped doing traditional pencil coloring for a half year, when I tried to pick it up again I flat out couldn't do it! It drove me crazy :lmao:
This is beautiful by the way, I love how you used shades of blue in the rocks, it adds so much more realism to it. No one really thinks of those things, adding blue or reds to a rock. Usually anyways. You use a white pencil to get that smooth color right?

I love this so much, though I don't know how I would act in this situation

You've got to post the final version of this painting. It's brilliant.

oh yes, i forgot to mention, do you have pencils which you dip into water, or normal ones? (i've got water ones, but they can be used without water for sketching)

No, I don't use watercolor pencils. I use normal Polychromos brand pencils.

Do you have any tutorials on how to draw fur? I've just got some proper coloured pencils for xmas, but i'm not sure how to draw fur yet, and this looks amazing!
