Traditional Drawing Tools by CristianaLeone Traditional Drawing Tools by CristianaLeone

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi there! This is NOT a tutorial! As some of my Facebook and Deviantart followers asked me which are my tools and how I use them for my traditional works, here is a quick sample to show my tools, in which order and for what I use them.
Sorry for the low quality pic... I only have my smartphone to take pictures... ç ^ ç

I also recorded a video with the same sample. You can find it on my youtube channel: www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYLMRx…



Some of my artworks realized with those tools:
My Ocs's eyes by CristianaLeone
Seth Sophia and the dragon by CristianaLeoneIsra by CristianaLeone

Thank you for viewing and I hope this can be useful...! ^^'

Amazing.... maybe I should use something other than my FINGER to smudge the lines!
I've only ever used a mechanical pencil, my finger, an inkpen, and a bottle of white-paint to get my drawings.... maybe I should move out of the stone age of drawing!!!

That white gel-pen tip is REALLY handy!
I imagine your greatest tool is your amazing talent though!

Me myself, I tend to work in HARD SHARP CRUEL lines..... I should REALLY soften things up... (That way my artwork won't looks so CREEPY!)

Thanks for these AWESOME tips!
I'll get cracking on making some artwork that ISN'T line-art soon!

This is very useful! And your drawing is beautiful too :)
Where did you got the smudge stick? I used to smudge my drawings with a kind of eraser, but I can't find these anymore...

I am happy you found it useful! :D
And I found the smudge stick in a stationery/art tools shop in my city, but I think you can find it also on internet!

Ohhh yes!
If I did traditional work I think I would like to work with them too!
But for now I just want to admire all the lovely people who use them and make beautiful pencil work! :heart: :heart:

I'm always hesitant to use graphite pencils above 8B because of the charcoal in them...introducing pure black changes the graphite look.

But I do need to invest in white gel pens :)

Well, yes of course it depends also on the artist's tastes ans style! :D I tend to have an heavy stroke, so I like use dark shadows! But this is just "my way" to do that! :D

And yes, white pens are useful tools! ^__^

This is very interesting! I had an erase pencil as a kid and never quite knew what it was for. You've solved years of mystery.
