I’m a very thrifty person, and like finding new creative ways to keep using my art materials, especially if it can extend my usage of them, rather than constantly buying new packs of pencils when there are still small ones left over. (The type of Eraser Barrel I have is “Pentel Clic Erasers”. The pencils are Crayola Color Pencils.) see post on deviantART

A huge thanks to all of you who have followed and liked stuff!
I am not dead, nor have I abandoned this blog. Work has walloped me upside the head, and I am still adjusting to it.
I will continue to update, but it might be a little while before the next new tutorial.
For the time being, I will repost the head tutorial again. Last time, I merely put links to it up, because I didn’t really have the hang of tumblr. For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, enjoy!

Ok! So! I received a request on my deviant to put up an Oil Pastel tutorial, basically it’s just a tutorial on how it’s just one of the ways you can use oil pastels and on mixing colors. Whenever possible try not using primary colors and instead try mixing in colors, it’s really fun and I promise you your pastel drawing or anything other drawing will turn out pretty awesome! ALSO, NOTE: You can do pastel drawing for you art portfolio!!
Now down to business!
- First things first, pick out any object and sketch it out lightly with a 2B Charcoal Pencil.
- Secondly, color in your dark and light values with a light blue and white. Blue being for darker tones and white being the lightest.
- Third, Play around with the colors! See what mixes with what and makes what color! It’s totally cool if you exaggerate with colors! It just makes it a lot livelier and fun! Do this before you put in color onto your piece!
- Fourth Paint away with your pastels! And have some patience, and MOST IMPORTANTLY DON’T OVERWORK YOUR PIECE. Why? Because then it’ll look like a blob of grey. TRUST ME. So don’t overwork your piece, if you get frustrated and you keep adding colors because it’s not coming out then STOP, take a breath and step back to look at it. Chances are, it’s look awesome as it is already.
I’ll jot down the materials I used too, so here goes, :
- General Charcoal Pencil 2B
- Cray-Pas Expressionist Oil Pastels
- Canson Mi-tientes Paper [On one side of the paper it’s a little rougher than the other side. If you’re a beginner try out the smooth side first before using the rough. Or if you just want texture and just wanna go for it then use the rough side.]
Well, that’s it so yea, I hope it helps anyone trying to build up an Art Portfolio or something!! And Please have fun with it!
As promised forever ago, a quick visual breakdown of how I sketch with the lasso tool.
Now you all know just how lazy I amlol..not really, I hate to demonize any tool. It’s just a super generic technique I’ve sort of become obsessed with. Making sketchy blobs look like things. — (On Deviantart)
