Matthew Bellamy by NinjaTofuPrincess Matthew Bellamy by NinjaTofuPrincess
Matthew Bellamy from Muse :dance:

My first drawing for 2011 (actually just as I wrote that, I realised I put "2010" on my drawing! Fail!) ^^; I'll fix it later...

Anyway, my first time drawing from a reference pic with coloured pencils...and it was a rather painful experience. I had many difficulties trying to get the right tones/shades and somehow the colours didn't mix so well :( I don't know, maybe I'm not using good quality pencils.

---

Any critique/advice are more than welcome!!! If you have any tips on how to use coloured pencils, I would be so grateful! :aww:

Actually I think it's the Mirror Manson. Oh! I just realised I didn't put the link to the reference pic. Here it is: [link]

You can see from the pickups and bridge that it's not the Delorean or Ali Top. And on the reference pic you can see how the body is all "mirrory".

You don't need tips; I NEED tips. This looks beautiful. It's hard to blend color pencils but you have that down

Haha, why thank you!
I know, it's so hard to blend them! I was using a tortillon but it barely had any effect...like the colour just stuck to the paper :P

:icon36yukiness:
36Yukiness Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2011  Student General Artist
I know. I usually use an eraser to change effect or have a whole seperate piece of paper soley dedicated to blending colors so i don't screw up.
