FAQ






:bulletorange: Frenquently Asked Questions :bulletorange:





1. What material do you use for your drawings?

I use Staedtler Lumograph pencils 6H to 8B,
and two mechanical pencils 0.3mm (H) and 0.5mm (2B).
Most of my drawings are A3 format on Canson Bristol "Extra smooth" 250g/m² paper.


2. How much time do you spend on your drawings?

It depends of the models, 40 hours on average but it can go to 60 hours and more..



3. With what make you the highlights and
how your drawings are so smooth?

For the highlights I use a kneaded eraser, you can easily found it in every art shop. For blending, I mainly use tissues for the largest parts (like the face of a portrait) and tortillions for the small corners. For further explanation, please read the tutorials listed at the end.



4. How do you get the right proportions?

I've drawn many drawings freehand, but the fastest and easiest way to have the right proportions is to make a gridline. You can also use a ruler to measure the important dots (eye's location, the outline of the face etc.)



5. Have you any advices for beginner?

Be patient and don't try to draw too complex models from the start! The practice is the key to progress and you will need a lot of time to achieved the desired level.



The important things to remember:

- Buy good materials, pencils 2H , F, B, 2B, 4B, 6B are the minimum. Prefer also thick sheets, this will allow you to make corrections easier.

- Put your photos in black and white to distinguish the shades of grays.

- Search tutorials on the web can also help to progress, starting with those: cataclysm-x.deviantart.com/gal…



6. Closing remark

Don't underestimate yourself, you can be as good as the best! If you are motivated and you love drawing like me,
you will progress quickly!
