When I posted my first drawings done in this style, they received a lot of positive feedback. One day I was asked to do a tutorial which would explain how I draw such drawings. Therefore I decided to write it, it is simple as that :aww:
I'm aware that the drawing "Breathe" that I presented in this tutorial isn't as impressive and amazing as I promised that every artwork drawn in this style might be - but it's just a simple and quickly done portrait which was drawn to show you how I draw like that step by step.
Last but not least, it's dedicated to Sekhmets-child and Little-Miss-Living for their help with my imperfect English :cuddle: Thank you again!
Hope you like it and find it helpful. Good luck with drawing! :huggle:

Oh, but I forgot, I sometimes use a hairspray! :) Sorry I didn't tell you earlier, I haven't used pastels in a long time so I forgot.

This is a very cool tutorial. I was wondering if you would say something about how you photographed these kinds of artworks for reproduction and for display. I'm working on a large piece using a pastel-on-black-paper technique, and would like to document my progress step-by-step. Getting the lighting and focus has been extremely difficult, and even then only partially successful. And then, when your works are done, you have to publish them online for people to view. Thanks again for sharing your techniques, and in advance for answering this question.
Best regards for the new year ahead,
Ed
