I think I wipe the lines out, because charcoal and 'pittkrijt' is very smudgie, and by 'wiping it out', the paper absorbs it (or something like that ).
Maybe it's a habit, I'll pay attention to that from now on .
And you're totally right about the shadows in the face and stuff. I'm still too afraid of ruin the thing .
Working big really helps! I can advice it to everyone.
If the proportions are good when you're working big, it will always be good on small size. And besides that; it's really cool .
l0stinth0ughts: tnx it's funny that you like the soft shades, as NoŽ doesn't .
New thing I made last night. It's for the assignment "draw things made by humans (head subject is architecture).
I left my charcoal and pittkrijt at school, so I had to improvise.
We are nog allowed to use a regular pencil, because most people will draw very precise then.
So, I've use a permanent marker to do this (YES, even for the lighter parts . Just hold it as horizontal as possible).
It took me 2 hours though...
Again: 100x80 cm.
