Day #202 – Drawing of Female Back

I did the male back yesterday and today I did this drawing of a female figure from a similar angle. I’m very happy with how the shading worked out. I used ‘tortillions’ that I found a while ago on Amazon. they’r essentially paper sticks which when used like a pencil over existing shading will blend and blur it all together and create the kind of smooth effect you see on this picture. It’s especially nice on skin and works best if you prepare the shading for quite a while with a pencil first and try to get lots of different shades in as then the blending will naturally maintain the transitions all being well.
