Here I Am by Devil-Wolf-1999 Here I Am by Devil-Wolf-1999
... this is me. =D

My first pastels painting! I like it a lot. :dance: It's for my mom, cos she's been bugging my aunt for years to paint her a hippo, and now I did it for her! Yey!!!

Okay, so what I did was stretch some ordinary paper. Then I used watercolour to lay a very rough base colour scheme. Then I used my pastels, putting on layer after layer. And voila!

Enjoy! :D

Tools:- Marie's Watercolour, Windsor&Newton soft pastels, Faber Castell hard pastels
Size:- about A3
Time:- 6 hours? maybe 7

You should do more pastel works you've got the 3D effect going with the shadows beautiful!=)

I'm afraid to use mine because I might treat it like my oil pastels and they're kind of expensive and thin XP

Not all of them. The ones I have are expensive, but they're nice and thick. It simply depends on where you look for them. ^^

Very good job girl!

I got several turn-ons on that drawing: the way you accomplished the hippo's skin and the water itself...there aren't many details on the large view, and that's what makes it interesting, because on the thumbnail it almost looks like an actual photo!

Keep it up, I'm waiting for your next works ;)

Interesting technique but it seems to have worked a treat!
I'm sure the water was a difficult effect to replicate so well done on that. all round good job (:
