Colored Pencil Painting Portraits
MASTER A REVOLUTIONARY METHOD FOR RENDERING DEPTH AND IMITATING LIFE
By ALYONA NICKELSEN
ABOUT COLORED PENCIL PAINTING PORTRAITS
Colored pencil painter Alyona Nickelsen reveals how to use the medium to push the limits of realistic portraiture.
Colored Pencil Painting Portraits provides straightforward solutions to the problems that artists face in creating lifelike images, and will prime readers on the intricacies of color, texture, shadow, and light as they interplay with the human form. In this truly comprehensive guide packed with step-by-step demonstrations, Nickelsen considers working from photo references versus live models; provides guidance on posing and lighting, as well as planning and composing a work; discusses tools, materials, and revolutionary layering techniques; and offers lessons on capturing gesture and expression and on rendering facial and body features of people of all age groups and skin tones.
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's review- With this book I thought it would be only colored pencils involved in the creating process, but this author added a lot of other products to make the portraits. I was a little disappointed but the book is great if you want to learn how to incorporate colored pencils into portraits. The instructions are not very hard to figure out and though you might have a bit of trouble if you are just starting out, this book may be a great resource.
