I just finished a new coloured pencil drawing, of a tiger cub. I had a lot of fun with it, and so did Echo, my little feathered drawing companion who’s sitting on my shoulder. This drawing didn’t take so many hours because it’s a bit smaller than I usually make my drawings. I love making drawings in colour. I always use Faber Castell Polychromos coloured pencils and they are awesome. The original drawing is for sale and soon limited edition prints will be available as well. Have a look at my website Remrov’s Artwork in the meantime. My next drawing will be a tiger again 🙂
Here’s my finished coloured pencil drawing of a lion. I call him Noble King. A lot of hours went into this fellow, but I had a lot of fun with it. I love to focus on all the tiny little details. I’m quite happy with the result as well.
The original is listed for sale, and instead of selling an unlimited amount of prints and products of it on Fine Art America, I decided to sell high quality limited edition prints of it. Have a look on my website Remrov’s Artwork.
Many people ask me what kind of pencils I use for my drawings, and what kind of coloured pencils and paper. So I made a selection of all kind of materials which I always use and which I find the best, and I posted this on my website Remrov’s Artwork
Over the years I have tried a lot of different brands of drawing materials and I found out that there is quite a lot of difference. Some pencil break more easily for example, and some coloured pencil brands are just more vibrant than others.
The drawing down below is one of my first. I did this one completely with graphite pencils of the brand Steadtler.
This drawing down here, my bearded dragon drawing, I did with coloured pencils from the brand Faber Castell Polychromos. The colours are very vibrant and they are quite soft and easy to work with. The pencils are a bit thinker though than other pencil so make sure you get a special Faber Castell pencil sharpener as well. You can find this on my website.
And down here you see my cockatoo drawing. The cockatoo itself I did with graphite mostly, but the darkest parts and the dark background I did with charcoal pencils. Graphite pencils are great and I use them all the time, but when you make something too dark with graphite pencils it starts to shine, so for the darker parts you need charcoal pencil instead.
Have a look at the selection I made. It will save you a lot of time and money since I have already gone through the whole process of finding the right brand and materials.
The last few weeks I have been working on a pencil portrait of Benedict Cumberbatch. It was quite a while ago since I drew a portrait of a person, so I decided to draw Cumberbatch as Sherlock. I love the BBC’s Sherlock TV series. I’m not selling prints of this drawing, because I don’t own the copyright of the photo I’ve been using as a reference. Some day I hope to give this drawing to Benedict Cumberbatch himself.
I’m working on something totally different for a change. It’s been a while since I’ve made a pencil drawing of a human face. I’m a huge fan of the Sherlock BBC TV series, so I decided to draw Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock. I hope you like it so far, and I hope to give it to Benedict Cumberbatch some day when it’s finished.
I finished my baby elephant pencil drawing. I’ve had a lot of fun with all the tiny details and the cracks of his skin. I’m quite happy with the result, I think he looks very cute and happy.
The original is listed for sale on my website Remrov’s Artwork and prints are also available on Fine Art America.
Right after finishing my pencil drawing of a brown bear, I started with a new drawing again, a baby elephant. For quite a while I wanted to draw another elephant, so I’m having a lot of fun with it. I truly love elephants, they are so majestic and beautiful, and very intelligent as well. I hope you like my drawing so far.
