Hello! Thank you very much! About the hair drawings: I use progresso 6 set by Koh-I-Noor which includes 6 woodless graphite pencils (8B-6B-4B-2B-HB-AQUARELL). I don’t use the last one too much though. I think that they’re not absolutely necessary. You can do as you said: by applying different amounts of pressure from a regular pencil. I used to do that before I equipped myself with more pencils. Nevertheless, I prefer having all kinds because it’s just easier for me to draw like that and I like the final effect more. If you want perfect details done, then you should definitely use one of the hard pencils. Also remember to sharpen it well.
Hi :) No, I usually don’t take requests unless I like the suggestion a lot and I’m not really a Sandra Bullock fan so…
thank you very much!
Yes! It happens all the time. I get really discouraged every time I browse deviantart and see all those beautiful artworks, some literally flawless, and then I look at mine and I feel like I’m a piecie of sh*t compared to them. Sometimes I feel like there’s no point to continue, but then I recall the feeling I get when I draw. It’s an amazing feeling to have the ability to create something from nothing and I’m really grateful for what I have achieved through years of practice. If the final thing doesn’t come out how I wish then I start over until I’m satisfied. It doesn’t really matter that someone is better than you or me. Every artist has their own style in which they are best. We should be proud of ourselves and of what we are capable of because we deserve that. Keep your head up. We have something to show to the world. :)
