PostSubject: Lisa's Tarantula Artwork Thread   8/23/2008, 10:36 am

after being inspired by chris golan's photo thread on the british tarantula society website, I have finally picked up my pencils after 2 years of not having the time! or the patience!

So as on there i have decided to do the thread on here too.

here's a taste of whats to come, 6 hours worth over last 3 nights. should hopefully be finished middle of next week.

pencils! Namely berol karisma colour.

I have to import them from the USA coz they dont make them in the UK anymore. But even importing them they're still cheaper than they were over here!

naah these ones are wooden. they're like cross between a graphite and a crayon. you can get the sharp detail of graphite but the blending ability of crayon.

And once you leave it overnight you get a slight waxy residue on the drawing, which if you are drawing anything furry (or with hairs!) it really makes every pencil stroke stand out and is quite a good effect.

They're the only ones on the market that have that effect. all other pencils i have used are too hard and have no real soft blending ability

i could but they're not cheap!
for plain tarantula / scorpion on its own of a rough size of 12" x 10" (size of the picture i have posted) I charge 25 + P&P.

If you want a background to it your looking 50+, +P&P

But if you are interested by all means pm me Smile

yeah im just saving up for a printer. I find it a lot easier to draw from prints than from the screen. I have been emailed loads of pictures of H. Lividum.. the next one im going to do.

But staring at the monitor and then at my drawing hurts my eyes after a while.

dont worry once we get printer they should come thick and fast
