Jude Law by Doctor-Pencil Jude Law by Doctor-Pencil
I first drew this with a white background, like the original photo. I thought it needed something else, as his features were too bland, so I next did a gradual shade from the lower left corner toward his face, getting lighter toward his face. I felt that still didn't look right, SO I darkened the whole background black. However, that made the hair shorter. I'm not 100% happy with his mouth. It looked a bit un-natural in the photo, and of course here? His lower lip looks to thin? Oh well...on the to the NEXT one! :D:D:D

How do you make so dark backgrounds?
Reply
:icondoctor-pencil:
Doctor-Pencil Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
People ask me this all the time. How do I get such dark backgrounds on my drawings. The answer is complex, so I will step it out below.

1) The paper you use MATTERS! I use only Bristol, which is 2 or 3 times thicker than drawing paper, so it has a strong tooth to the paper
2) I use either B or 2B. The softer you go (3B-9B) the more wax is in the graphite, which makes it like a crayon and hard to blend.
3) I KEEP the pencil SHARP, and I hold it SIDEWAYS.
4) I do small sections at a time
5) I TURN the pencil in my fingers as I darken
6) I use a scraping motion
7) I end up going back over it more than once before finished
8) I LATER use a harder pencil (H, F) and go over the dark area again
9) I use a "workable spray fixative" made by Krylon which reduces glare
10) I never use a flash on the camera when taking the photo of it
11) I ONLY take the photo during the daytime, under natural light, by laying it on the carpet near a window.
12) I NEVER use a software program to darken the photo of the drawing

I hope this helps?

ha, if you want? I just notice it needed a 5% contrast adjustment to match the drawing. It lost something in the photo editing? :D
