A big greeting to the whole community of "Steemit", today I join the drawing contest that brings us the friends of @stef1 and @myskye, the theme is "Childhood", in my presentation I drew a boy playing with his baseball, put the title of "Happy Childhood", the technique I use is graphite on sepia cardboard, if you want to join this activity here is the address.
Step 1 y 2
I make the sketch in Hb 2 graphite pencil, I start with the first layers of graphite pencil, when we make images of children, we have to take into account the symmetry of the components, try to capture their childhood personality, that innocent expression that is reflected in children, defined lights and shadows, these details are important.
I define the sectors that I am going to give a strong shading, for this I use the graphite pencil b6 and b8, this makes certain important features that define the character stand out.
I make the part of the skin wearing a vertical pattern, to give a uniform and orderly appearance, the lighting parts specifically remain without any graphite layer, thus I take advantage of the same clarity of the surface, this will give volume to the drawing, I give it a dark tone to the bottom to give more contrast, I add shades that give you the perspective I need.
Thank you friends of @art-venture for your great support and for motivating us to continue working in the good art of the community, I say goodbye with this thought that makes us grow more every day.
If you imagine it, it's real .
