palomino blackwing pencil

Benedict Cumberbatch. Going back to the white bristol paper, just to see if I could work with it again. I can, but I don’t like it as much as I used to. *sigh*

Mats used: Staedtler Pencil 2B, 3B,  6B and 8B (wich is actually Carbon, so very dark but waxy) , Palomino Blackwing pencil and General’s Powdered Graphite on Canson Mixed Media XL White Paper, (11X14 )

Thanks for looking! 

My Art Tag

Castiel - palomino blackwing pencils on strathmore mixed media paper. for a drawing swap with the fantastic cluelessakemi! he looks a little scruffy but he’s all yours. :) open in new tab for higher quality. [my art tag]

breaking in my new sketchbook and my Palomino Blackwing pencil. it makes very dark blacks, but apparently also very reflect-y in the scanner. this was to be a value study and a texture study for a possible later drawing, only partially successful at both. ref is from the gorgeous Imitation Game Time magazine covershoot, with the weird lighting and even weirder jacket.


Commissions - work in progress.

A few commissions on the go at the moment. The cutaway lighthouse is for a tattoo, and the fishing boats are sketches for a competition winner.

Drawn with Palomino Blackwing pencils on tracing paper and cheap copy paper.
