The Tall FaerieApril 11, 2013

This is a sketch that I created for a friend of mine from Junior High School. She recently confessed to me that she would like a sketch and that she liked faeries. So, I went ahead and drew this sketch for her. I have found that I really like sketching on a medium value paper. The medium value paper allows me to actually place my highlights more purposely rather than just relying on the white of the paper. I have also found that I can do more searching of my form with a line that is also medium value so that when I finally commit to a line – I can really punch it up with a very dark value or very light value.
