Rating: 4.4/5 (7 votes cast)

This artist has produced a time lapse video to present to you how he takes on drawing of a wolf. His selected mediums for this picture are chalk pastels and pastel pencils which enable much finer detail as you have a sharper point and greater control.

The artist begins with a very loose application of base colors in only a few shades before advancing with the black chalk to start adding bolder areas of coverage. He uses short stout strokes with the pastel to imitate the lie of the fur and has his finger ready to smudge and blend in the appropriate places. The eyes are the show stoppers in this drawing with their incredible detailing and realistic look. This is where the pastel pencils really come into play. Do you think you can do the same?

    That’s amazing! There are no words to describe your work. .I HAVE A QUESTION :) pastel pencil shade and soften very well, but if you touch the paper you get dirty, is there anything to fix the drawing so that you can put it in a frame?

However, it is nice to see how it is done.Also noted what media and and art products you are using. Possibly with these and some fierce concentration and discipline I may get a reasonalbe result.Keep sharing with us and who knows, you may help someone to succeed – Very best wishes

  9. Hello! Congrats on your first pastel pencils! At about 1:33 I’m using a light yellow #105 CarbOthello pastel pencil. When laying down these hairs you have to have to push down fairly hard, don’t be afraid to break a point to get the hang of it. I also spin the pencil sometimes as I swipe so that it will lay down a clean and sharp line. Be sure to wipe off your pencil point often so it won’t get muddy while laying in the hairs. It just takes some practice and you’ll get it. Good luck! :)) Roby

    Hi! I just bought my very first set of pastel pencils yesterday, and I’ve been watching this video over and over again to get a feel for how they work. One thing I noticed around 1:33 is that you’re able to add white on top of the other colours. When I attempt to add white highlights to fur for example, the pencil only softens the colours, instead of standing out on it’s own. Would I need to use a white pastel that’s softer than the others to achieve this? ps You are incredibly talented!!

  17. What type of pencil’s are you using? I’m 12 and I am very good at realistic drawing and I’m trying to get to do color. I can do regular pencil but no color. So I’m building up my skill. I am almost as good as you. I have a channel as well. Please check it out. Thank you ^^

  22. Hello! Thanks so much for the nice comment. I don’t use any fixatives as it usually darkens and leaves little dots on your work but most of all I don’t use them as your painting will no longer be archival. I know a lot of great artists use them for a foundation for layers and it works well, but I choose not to. Thanks again! :)) Roby

  23. Hello! Thank you for the nice comment! I would be willing to hear or see what it is and then go from there. I get asked a lot but I would need it to fit into my sales plan and be something interesting that I could make prints for resale. What did you have in mind? Thanks again..:)) Roby

  24. Hi! You’re not bothering me:) It took me all of one day to complete this painting. I don’t think there is any time difference. I used to do a lot of graphite drawing, it’s all the same to me. Just a little tip when using graphite and pastels together if you are. Depending on your paper when you use graphite and then go over your sketch with pastel you have to be very light handed with your sketch. If you press too hard with the graphite the pastel won’t go over it, smashes the tooth. :)) Roby

    hey sorry to keep asking questions haha I’m about to start using pastel pencils now (I’m a graphite artist mostly) and I was wondering how long did it take you to complete this painting? Do pastel paintings usually take longer or shorter than graphite ones? thanks
