View Full Version : Red Flower

I have not shown anything for awhile because I wanted to complete this flower from the ArtRage Reference Photo group on flickr.
I have been working on it for several days now. I began with a template and picked my colors from the original photo. The rest is color pencil and blender. I am having a problem getting rid of the white dots all over the drawing.:)

That looks like your paper texture showing through. In any case, it doesn't detract from your image.

All day, no internet. It finally came back on after I gave up and decided that anything I do now will make it worse.
This is my finished result. The original one is on the ArtRage Photo Reference Group on Flickr from BumbleWales.:):)

This turned out nicely! Sometimes the canvas texture creates those darned spots--and sometimes it works very well. Sometimes, they´re just irritating. Here, I don´t think you´ve got any problem. Nice job!

Thanks. I noticed it doesn't do that with a smooth paper. Must try that the next time.:):)
