    Blended Drawing Test

    I made this imaginary drawing too to quickly test the smoother effect of pencil once blended with knife ...

    With a wet blender, pencil shades pretty well. (See My Belly's couch) My only complaint is that I can't get the knives small enough to do minor details, such the face of this lady here. I've had better luck tossing a bit of felt marker in a similar color.

    Thank You, dear Amanda, but in this case I didn't correct it too much, so there are mistakes, but I was eager to carry out the experiment and see how smooth the transitions I could get this way were ....

    Thank You, dear Sandra. Having 10-15 minutes each now and then, I can only proceed to quick experiments ...

    Dear Magen, I tried the sharp (practically doesn't smudge), the soft (it tend to move too much the lines and/or smudges a little too heavy) and the wet knife (the best, as You say). Actually I noticed that either the felt pen and the watercolor close to the lines takes their color with them with interesting effects, but You loose the traits, different watercolors on watercolor pencils .... Thank You!

    When I used the felt marker over pencil, the colors moved a bit better using a smudge. If I used just one or the other they moved hardly at all. I did use the blend colors tool in there as well. I liked the wet blender and smudge out ones a bit more though, they work much better with the felt markers on the preset default of blending markers. Pencil I prefer the hard/soft tip with the toolsize being quite small.

    Another thing that has helped recently with blending a bit is something I picked up from Jack on use of the blur. It has made for some interesting and new avenues to the pen/pencil/felt markers that I seem to be enrapt with at the moment. I appreciate his latest WIP series, showing us how he performs his great works.

    Thanks for sharing this, Caesar! Im tucking this idea away for future reference.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Dear Magen, thank You for the useful tips!

    Thank You, dear Scott! I'll keep waiting Your new wonders then, also considering Your mastery with black and white paintings ...
