NightStar | Graphite Drawing

NightStar, graphite & colour pencil, 10×13″ (11×14″ paper), 2022.

PRELIM

Starting with some brief thumbnails in the sketchbook. Going through Nalini Singh’s second installment in the Psy-Changeling series for some inspiration. Admittedly these tiny drawings look like a bunch of chicken-scratch, but it has been enough to save ideas nonetheless.

Starting the preliminary drawing on a sheet of vellum/drafting paper.


Taking the finished line drawing and creating a simple lighting/value study on Paintshop Pro; using various references as a guide.

Drawing in Progress

Line drawing transferred onto a sheet of Strathmore Bristol paper, followed by light applications of graphite; slowly building up to the darker values.
