Once Upon a Time…

I know, I know I haven’t posted in 5 months. Sorry. I have lots of material though so let’s dive in.

Last year I did a post on my love for chalk pastels, that can be found here. This year I was challenged to draw a character from a pop culture film very very big with chalk pastels. The end result is a project I happen to be quite proud of.

I started out with a huge piece of paper. I don’t know the exact dimensions but it filled the table I worked at. I projected a drawing of the figure onto the bigger paper and traced it. Here is the initial drawing.

To see more progress pictures you can look at my Instagram. Below is the reference photo and the final result. Obviously my drawing holds nothing to the reference photo,

I will take a better quality picture of this soon. The drawing isn’t even finished here, I see so many things that I fixed later! I’ll try to get a new photo ASAP. I’ll write more about the learning experience later but I just want to get this posted for now, more to come!
