Great =D

I gotta agree with Boyann; it'd be nice to see what your initial sketches/drawings with the aforementioned Col Erase look like before you add the final pencils on 'em. =)

AS I mentioned below, I don't use the blue pencil much, mostly just the draw, erase, draw, erase, etc with HB. I will post some step by step though soon!

Stellar composition and gorgeous rendering..!
You know what would be REALLY educational..? To see your BLUE PENCIL UNDERDRAWING, the phase as it is PRIOR to the HB graphite tightening.
Any chance of that..?
Cheers!

There generally is not much there with the blue pencil, just a indication of general placement for the composition. I do most of my drawing in HB and the reason it looks clean is that I draw, erase, redraw, erase, etc!

WOW!
I'd never ever imagine that you redraw, erase and so on... always thought it's the rough bluesketch, tightening in HB, swapping the page sides on the lightbox and that's it..!
I'm back to blue pencil + F or H or 2-3H [can't stand soft leads] and for now no more small thumbnails, photocopy enlargement and lightboxing it with correction onto the final cardstock.
Thanks for the explanation!

I hate tracing off my own work and prefer the fresh line - so I will always erase and redraw something if I can.

Understood.
As some artists dislike 'mess' on paper due to extensive corrections involving erasing etc. - there are those who actually prefer that direct organic feel of working on the same page all the time.

Thank you for all the information!

Yeah, I just get bored tracing stuff off and it shows!

I'm with you on this one...
Hence my lack of comprehension how come some guys actually base their MO on cleaning up the rough[s] and amending the drawings through lightboxing etc.?
I worked in animation, did tons of clean-up and such, thought that has to be the way.
You know that wisdom - 'If you wanna work big you have to draw small first'? Tried that too, with wee thumbnails and even enlarging them via xerox mashine to 'save the spontaniety' but to no avail... Can't stand drawing small, I need big page, big space...

After working for so long, I only know one way to do stuff so that's what I do!

But I love drawing big - I do little roughs so I'm not wasting time and then go straight to the full size paper.
