    Marble statue sketch (with little supply/ tutorial)

    Imaginary half torso. I'm almost satisfied of this test. The problem would be rather be to blow color and life to this piece of marble ...

    You should very definitely continue and perhaps even consider a tutorial on how to paint marble textures
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Thank You, dear limey-g and semd74!

    I'll use this method possibly for some monochrome complete figure and see if I may find also a way to add color keeping a good finished classical look on the monochrome version (like the so called grisaille procedure).

    Supply/ tutorial
    I would provide herewith the base layer I got for marble simulation to anyone interested. I added three other drawing paper base.
    You may modify texture and grain on it by setting them in the canvas menu.
    You open then a new layer on it and proceed with just pencil and crayon as appropriate for settings. Start trying with the pre-sets and from a reference. Pick the color from the base sheet as basic hue, then use it moving from sensibly darker tones for outlines and shadows and very light ones for highlights. Use the knife, mostly the hard one and some wet for smoother effects and ... that's it.
    Remember that grain is more visible in the middle tones and is blurred in the darker shadows.

    Thanks for the textures
