Old, Dead And Stained

Catching up with my college project doing a few observational drawings and I found it fun using the watercolour pencils on the old lady drawing, using the water to smoothly blend the harsh pencil lines into each other.

Yes, her face is a little chubby and the lips aren’t right, but I was aiming for using watercolour pencil as shading for the first time. Not a bad attempt  : ) Also drew another old woman (a little more friendlier looking) using pen lines.

Again, the cheek is a little off and so is the mouth, I need to work on that. Can anyone give me advice how to draw the mouth area better? Eyebrows seem to be an issue too.   One of the pages in my book has skeletons for a boarder. Here’s one done in pen and ink.

I like drawing skeletons ^_^ If anyone draws them, I’d be interested to take a look : ) The smelliest thing so far has to be the coffee stain pages. As much as I love tea, being British and all, I don’t like using teabags for staining paper. Coffee definitely makes a stronger mark, but my gosh does it stink.

What can I do to get paper to look old?

Stain it.

Burn it.

Bury it.

That’s all I can think of.
