Cheryl Cole Glamour - Signed by Charlzton Cheryl Cole Glamour - Signed by Charlzton
My first ever A3 piece. This took me over 2 months, a lot of work and I only got the hang of it half way through. The shading was extremely difficult to control over such a large surface area so not everything is the best, especially the mesh glove, it was just too much for me.

A3 Catridge Paper
40+ hours
2B+7B

UPDATE: I got this drawing signed on 24th February 2012 and Cheryl was once again blown out of the water by it, you can see a photo of Cheryl holding it here: [link]

How did you get that deep deep black? Just with a 7B pencil? Does it "shine" a bit or did you find a way to get it a mat finish?

I cheated in Photoshop after I scanned it haha, I'd normally do it with charcoal and it'd be matte but charcoal gets too messy.

Ahahhahaha!!! You're smart :-P
Yeah charcoal is messy. I have found a nice oil-based charcoal pencil that can let you achieve a nice mat black but I've never used it to fill wide areas, just pupils, eyelashes, nostrils, etc. Still looking for something that gives a good result even before a photoshop adjustment :D
Thanks for replying to my question :)

This is a really nice piece. I checked out the photo of Cheryl holding it... good for you! That must have been a thrill. One thing; I noticed that the way your drawing reproduces in the photo with Cheryl is actually better than it is here. This version is very dark. In the photo, the mesh glove looks far more transparent, and the whole drawing has a much more open feel. How are you digitizing your work? Are you scanning it or photographing it? And do you have some good editing software? I use Photoshop Elements 7, myself. It's an older version, so it's cheap, but you can still find it. It cost me about $50 as a download, and it does everything I need. If you don't have something that's professional-level like that, you should. But otherwise, it's an excellent drawing.

Hi there! I simply darken then levels that's pretty much it, not to mention there was flash in the photo with Cheryl holding it. Thanks a lot though!
