Wednesday WIP: Kaylah - Part I

maio 16, 2012,11 Comments


I'm pretty sure you might be wondering why am I not posting a new WIP of this drawing. To be honest, this week I felt like working on some realism so I decided to finally start drawing Kaylah from The Dainty Squid as I intended to do a long time ago.
I've spent quite some time drawing her bangs (in case you can't tell) so I can't wait to move on to her face and the rest of her hair! :) I truly need to get some practise on realism as I am actually thinking on opening my very own Etsy shop for my drawing commissions. What do you think, good or bad idea? Any advice from fellow Etsy sellers?
Tenho a certeza que se devem estar a questionar por que não estou a publicar um novo WIP deste desenho. Para ser honesta, esta semana senti que devia trabalhar um pouco no realismo por isso decidi finalmente começar a desenhar a Kaylah do The Dainty Squid como já queria fazer há algum tempo.
Passei algum tempo a desenhar a franja (para o caso de não conseguirem ver) por isso mal posso esperar para passar para a cara dela e para o resto do cabelo! :) Preciso mesmo de ganhar alguma prática no realismo já que estou a pensar abrir a minha loja no Etsy para as minhas encomendas de desenhos. O que acham, boa ou má ideia? Algum conselho de quem tem uma loja no Etsy?

  1. Do you have any tips on how to get the hair to look so real? How many different leads/pencils do you use?

  2. Eu acho que é uma óptima ideia, e tenho a certeza de que este desenho vai ficar fantástico! Força, querida :)

  3. Hi! I guess the best tip I can give you is to have a lot of patience! I used to rush when drawing hair but taking your time definitely pays off! Depending on the drawing, I'll usually use something from 1-3 different pencils. I use a rubber to make highlights, it definitely does help! :) I'll try to write a tutorial on drawing hair in the future!

  4. muito obrigada, Vanessa! :) no período entre fazer trabalhos para a faculdade, lá vou desenhando um bocadinho...

  5. I love Kaylah's blog! Can't wait to see how this artwork turns out!

  6. I personally think that you should definitely open up an etsy shop to sell commissioned drawings, you are so talented Ester! But, another thing is I would be wary of how many commissions you take on at once, because it coule get pretty overwhelming! Good luck dear! Also, I love Kaylah's blog, I'm excited to see the finished drawing!

  7. wow thank you so much, Oana! I think that's such a huge compliment coming from an amazing artist like you!

  8. Thanks, Meanz! I actually tought of it and I'll definitely keep my listing small at each time so I'm able to work on my commissions without getting too much pressure! :) I can't wait to finish the drawing either, I truly hope I'll make it justice to Kaylah's awesomeness!

  9. This looks amazing so far; I can't wait to see it finished! :)
