Mark Menendez: Chief Raven Hair Colored Pencil Tutorial

  • *Note* Drawing paper is not included with this project.

    Portrait, texture, dramatic lighting - this project has it all.
     While drawing Chief Raven Hair you will explore several colored pencil techniques that carry over to your own artwork.

    Canson Mi Tientes Tobacco colored paper creates an instant background that speeds up an otherwise intricate design. You will be introduced to Mark's easy-to-learn portrait method, plus learn how to create a variety of textures and capture dramatic lighting to emphasize form.

    Go Premium: You'll get this project in print and as a digital download, transfer paper, and a DVD with 32 minutes of video instruction focusing on the face. This additional material helps you approach any portrait in colored pencil by studying the contrast of light and shadow. The stages of application are clearly explained and are designed to complement this project.

    Bonus! Download a printable extra large (11 x 14 inches) line drawing for transferring to your own drawing surface. Included with every purchase.

Easy to follow tutorial

I am shocked and delighted at how easy it was to follow this step by step tutorial. I was able to get a good likeness on the very first try.

This is a challenging tutorial and very satisfying to see it come together. I enjoyed it very much.

Chief Raven Hair

On the whole this was a positive experience. All the way through this project I found I would benefit from the full page drawing of the finished picture. My colours, although they were PC in the same shades were different from the artists especially slate grey. I enjoyed the challenge. Regards Jeanette
