Other things of note are:
- I recently purchased some polychromos pencils, so i have been using these for the first time. These are great i am really enjoying and no wax bloom is GREAT.
- Strokes - not only are my strokes looser i have also been "blurring the edges" with this one, its not the way i usually work and is also something i read about from JSS but i think its an invaluable lesson to learn been been part of my problem in the past in order to get things to look right.
- Standing up, i am also remembering to get some distance when working so i have been standing up. This i have found really helps traing my eye for "seeing" as i tend to get too close when working on cp.
This illustration board is not working as well as i had hoped it just cant take the layers other papers i have used can. So i at this point am going to spray a few coats of fixative in the hope to get some more particuallarly white / light layers in. Lets see how we go :)
