Bob Dylan in Coloured Pencil by dwightyoakamfan Bob Dylan in Coloured Pencil by dwightyoakamfan
- Drawn in HB2 pencil and Crayola (and some Roseart) coloured pencils.

I'm actually pretty proud of this... this is my first attempt in a very long time doing realistic coloured drawings; traditionally especially. So I'm fairly happy with how it came out!! It was a fun picture to do on top of that. :)

I did the best I could with the quality. Because of the texture of the paper, it wouldn't scan well, so I had to take a photo of it... I did the best I possibly could and hope it looks okay.

Any critique or comments you have are
greatly appreciated and wanted!!! <3

Simply amazing.

Your choice of paper really gives a Dylan-esque vibe as well.

The fur on his collar; brilliant

wow, thank you so much... it means a lot that even though the quality isn't great the paper still looks good!

and the fur was very tough to make it not look stingy... so thank you!

Wow, it's great! I love Bob Dylan, why didn't I see your drawings before? :D
You did a wonderful job with the colors, it's something i'm a little afraid to try but your drawing is very realistic. I even think that the blurry look add to the realism, it looks like an old photo :clap:

LOL... I have no idea why... I have a ton! XD

Thank you, it's my first real attempt at realistic colours in a long time and I was worried it was gonna be terrible but it actually turned out much better than I thought it would... :)

And, yay, the blurry look actually enhances it XD It's already blurry in person anyways :)

Nice! Doing realistic color drawings is still a mystery to me.

That's gotta be the most colorful thing he's ever worn too. XD

Thank you. They still kind of are to me, too. This is my first attempt at doing one in about 4 years. (and I kind of failed the last time) So I think it turned out okay. :)

Yeah, I bet it is. LOL. XD It was fun to colour!

Nice pic............a bit blurry, probably because you photographed it.
Would like to see the 'scanned' one?

Well, the paper is 9x12 so it wouldn't fit on my scanner bed and plus the paper is from an acrylic pad so the texture is almost like a canvas. I might try and rescan it if I can but this was the best I could possibly do :)

Thanks for the comment tho :3
