Toned Paper Drawings

It’s been a while since I posted. Ever since the hurricane I have been working extra hard to make up for the week I have lost and there are only a few weeks left of the semester. And of course I still have a lot of work to do. But I have been able to find extra time between waiting for paint to dry to sketch. And I have decided to try some new techniques to make finished drawings that don’t have inked lines. 


first try at using toned paper 

I decided to try drawing on a non-white piece of paper. I have seen other illustrators I admire do drawings on toned paper like Justin Gerard and Brian Froud. It was alot different then working on white paper because I could use white charcoal to add another value along with the values from a variety of pencils. 


another toned paper drawing

I’ve only had a chance to do a few drawing on the toned paper, but look forward to using this medium and technique to explore another way to create a finished piece.
