That's cool...kinda looks like charcoal...what medium is it?
  icon
Flubbles (edited Oct 6, 2009)
Did you do that with coloured pencil?
I was going to say charcoal at first...it's either one or the other.

Roytje (Oct 6, 2009)
I don't know the English word for it, but this is it. I only have 4 colors yet. Yesterday I drew my first drawing with it.

Pastel, just like the Dutch word :D

wow thats your first drawing with chalk pastels? amazing. they're kind of unforgiving, especially in the lighter areas of the picture. you should try oil pastels as well, they're so creamy and delicious..seems like they would suit your style well.

backmagicwoman (Oct 6, 2009)
I use a lot of charcoal..but I really like how this looks very similar...and definitely there are more colors...may try those out..
  icon
Roytje (Oct 6, 2009)
No, my second ;) This was my first one. I'm such a art newbie. Never heard of oil pastels before, do they need to dry for a long time? Just like normal oil paint?
  icon
Flubbles (edited Oct 6, 2009)
Yea i did a painting in oil pastels once for my grans birthday...it was a horse and it's foal.I only used them once but i really enjoyed using them.
They dont fully dry out...thats why i framed the drawing.

backmagicwoman (Oct 6, 2009)
That's really cool...
  icon
Suntan (Oct 6, 2009)
they look good, nice to see, Roytje. I've never used any of those materials..seems like they could be a bit of messy fun. Did you spray fixative on them?
  icon
staci (Oct 6, 2009)
lol art newbie..OKAY! :P

nope they never dry, really easy to smudge...can be a bit frustrating that way. you'd have to use a fixative or frame it under glass like flubbles said. AND they are a bit more expensive than chalk for really good ones.

TaCO (Oct 6, 2009)
chalk pastel is like sweet sweet candy to me. I love them but i always for get to spray them and they get messed up :(

Ink wash and those dipping ink pens are my favorite, you can get AMAZING COLORS with them, but it's so messy. My favorite color is colored ink.

Nothing is is better than then feel of pen to paper, fuck erasers!!

i have always been partial to acrylics and paint pens...

I've always preferred painting to working with pastels, but these articles I found make them look a little more interesting to me. Nice work, Roytje!

I think I may be interested in painting with the regular oils...i really like that they blend very well..right now i m using the acrylic pens..it's so much faster when you are dealing with the pumpkins..the acrylic paints are really good for the resin statues after they've been primed..I got two more coming from Thailand next month...
  icon
Flubbles (Oct 6, 2009)
The only reason i dont paint more is because it takes me longer to clean up all my brushes and stuff afterwards than i spend on actual painting.I've got alot of new paints and shit i've not even used...one day i just stopped and i've not painted much ever since.
  icon
Suntan (Oct 6, 2009)
I'd like to try oil, but for a beginner, like myself, it seems like it would be expensive and I thought about the clean up, too. Recently I was given about 15 tiny canvases of different sizes that I have no idea what to do with so I guess acrylic would be better for experimenting.

Yeeeeeeeeeeah.... you guys suck. I work with the ol' fucking pencil, nothing else, well, besides pen. This is why I asked my mom to get me a gift card for Michael's, so I could just go nuts in there. :(
  icon
backmagicwoman (Oct 6, 2009)
Michael's is my home away from home..lol

The Library in my school is mine :3 I simply looooooooooooooove reading. But I wish I could say I've been in Michael's more than twice. I haven't. TT.TT

I love reading as well..I think it's very calming...

Bubblicious (Oct 6, 2009)
It's my escape from reality, kind of sucks when the books end though.
  icon
backmagicwoman (Oct 6, 2009)
What kinds of books do you like...I may be able to suggest some really good ones for you...
  icon
Bubblicious (Oct 6, 2009)
Well, I will pretty much read anything, so long as it isn't academic. But most recently I've read the House of Night series (it's about vampyres, of course. I kind of need to get out of that faze.) so fantasy is definitely one of them. I like romance novels (I feel so ashamed!) and I love twisted stories, Edgar Allen Poe being my most favorite author/poet ever :)

But yeah, pretty much anything.

Roytje (edited Oct 7, 2009)
Thanks for all the nice comments. I'll definitely try oil pastels. Sounds good.
Here is an acrylic/ oil painting

@Suntan: I did not have fixative spray, so I just did put hairspray on it. It still smells like hairspray :)

xiau (edited Oct 7, 2009)
That's really awesome! I love how well you were able to bring out the features by using the dark shadows. Pastels are difficult to handle, so it's hard to believe this is one of your first!

I've always wanted to try oil painting, but it really does seem expensive and messy :( Not to mention I have terrible patience, so long drying periods would kill me.
I like acrylics, though. I think their strong point is they dry quickly. But, I think that's also their weak point. They dry a little too quickly, so blending things well can get pretty difficult.
  icon
backmagicwoman (Oct 7, 2009)
Yeah..the drying too quickly part is what makes me want to try something new...
  icon
Suntan (Oct 7, 2009)
haha, Roytje..I didn't know you could use that! cool..probably a lot cheaper, too. :)

haha, the only non digital things I use are pens and pencils nowadays...mostly for doodling in class. I have no idea how to paint or anything. xD Though I did own a single blue oil pastel a long time ago and it was awesome. xD
Those drawings are amazing, btw. :)

backmagicwoman (Oct 21, 2009)
I delivered my last order of painted pumpkins today..woot woot..I have a few plain ones leftover so i think I'll turn them into pie filling for Thanksgiving....no more pumpkin painting this year...I can't tell you how tired my hands are...

That's pretty kickass...I am still debating on wether or not to carve pumpkins for my party or paint them..maybe i could do half and half..
  icon
Flubbles (Oct 21, 2009)
I used two references one for the pumpkin and one for frankenstein, i might do another one but with a different face on.
  icon
backmagicwoman (edited Oct 21, 2009)
I think they are cool...I got lots of those books that are full of all the different patterns for doing the elaborate carvings like these...i think I may arve a few as well as doing some painted ones..I was watching this show about Extreme Halloween..and they showed all kinds of carved pumpkins like these..it was great...I gotta let my kid use the comp right now..bu if you happen to do one make sure i get a link to it so i can check it out...

jekyll (Oct 21, 2009)
These are a few of the ones I've done in recent years. I saw a picture in Life Magazine years ago and figured it was the way I wanted to carve pumpkins.

Lol I love talking/reading about art supplies. Whenever I find a new one in the art rooms I try it. I have a question for oil pastel users, should you use many different colors or few colors?
  icon
backmagicwoman (Feb 8, 2010)
I got new oil paints for christmas...I could use a few more pointers myself...

Oil pastels sound difficult to use.
Roytje: very nice..are they all wet on wet? I want to try that.
