1stly the original work is by the artist i mentioned
Now i 1st did the line art , then started colouring ... blending one colour with another with just nornal colour pencils is really tough it requires a law of physics of force applied on the other colours . Bascially when we start colouring we use warm and soft colours and then put the darker shades on it ... in the part of the hair i 1st colours it whole light yellow (very lightly , not deeply ) then i applied vermillion lighltly and left those places where the shine is to take place and starting from the edges i applied red a bit roughly and then ultimately comes the black ... for any kind of dark area black should always be applied at last ..(for better colouring u can use polychromous colour-pencils ,it gives beautiful blends )( for graphite try graphite blenders for smudging) i hope this helps
so let me tell u what i understanded.So u first draw the outline with a normal pencil.Then you start filling in with colours and U dont use graphite pencils except for the outline and all the work done is just by colours.and i get it how u did the hair part and i think u got it perfect and I think ur a GENIUS.I have never heard of polychromous colours however i will research it online and i do have graphite blenders .My question is ,Is there any tools u use for blending those colours or do u just build up layers and layers of colours starting by soft and light just like u said and putting darker layers as u go? ....IAM SO GLAD THAT U TOOK THE TIME TO READ AND REPLY TO MY COMMENT.i am also sure that ur replys will sure help me to start using those colours without fear.
i didnt use polychromous myself yet ..may be later and i saw your sketches , its all good what you do and u will improve as you practice all i try to focus on right now is to make a good presentation ....if you are only working with graphite u can keep a paper below ur hand while shading (that will not let ur hand come in touch with the graphite causing unwanted spreading here and there and he best part is observing i suppose ,thats what i did for long time ,i observe others (how they made it ,like stare at their works and try to figure it out as much as possible) good to know that u already use blenders ...u can continue doing shading because that makes u more better in the field of pencils (whether its colour , graphite , polychromous , etc) and u can start colouring also without any hesitation ,continue the hard work
