Very quick work to try bristol board paper. I was sure that I wouldn't finish it, but I finished, it was just a rest after lectures in university...You may notice lots of mistakes here. Haha:) Any tips how to work on bristol board will be highly appreciated.

What do you mean bristol board? Is it like paper mounted on card board? I think with bristol paper I have to press pretty hard.. but, what's great is you can achieve super realistic drawings

Thank you :) This paper is very thick( 250g/m2) and very smooth. I didn't have any idea if it was good, I just noticed many artist here on DA using it and decided to buy Bristol Board to try to draw smth on it...I must say that I like it but I just have to get use to it and practice more to achive better result to make my drawings more realistic. I drew this drawing just for fun and it wasn't serious and took me a few hours:D I notice lots of mistakes now:) And what kind of paper do you use? On your new drawing, for example? And it's so huge!! Sometimes I think,'wow, there exist people who have lots of patience'...

And thank you very much for adding me to your watchlist :) I appreciate it:)

Hey you're doing amazing! I use bristol smooth specifically Canson XL® Recycled 9x12 Bristol Pad - All the other major brand name drawing paper have a yellowish tint and I dislike that. I've gone through all kinds of bristol smooth brand of papers and I like Canson paper the best. It's recycled paper(I'm not sure how long lasting it will be...) and it's only student grade but it's amazingly bright and smooth(even more than copy paper.) It even have 2 sides, (one smooth and one vellum) ^^

I think only bristol give that realistic look, but it is also the hardest to work with, it also takes the longest to blend because it doesn't have that tooth paper texture that helps to grab graphite easily.

Good day Vira :P I hope that helps

Отражение в глазах замечательное!! Молодчина!! Детей рисовать это труднее чем взрослых. а на бристоле хорошо тени размазывать (blend)?

Приветик,Леночка:D Я вот какраз зашла на сайт:) Спасибо за комплимент:)Я когда увидела фотку, сразу же знала, что нарисую,эти глаза просто меня покорили:) Ты знаешь, оочень удобно, я салфеткой растираю, мне удобнее всего механическим карандашом 2В делать штрихи а потом растирать и так повторяю несколько раз.Чесно сказать, то это всего лиш пробная и очень быстрая работа, чтобы понять, что это за бристол бод, что его все так хвалят:)

Молодец что успеваешь и с занятиями и со всем :) интересные впечатления! Мне казалось что хвалят из-за прочности. Признаюсь мне с текстурами гораздо больше нравится, а бристол гладкий или с текстурой? также думаю побробовать механический 2B для тонов!

Бристол - бумага на любителя, у нее текстуры нет совсем, она очень гладкая. Для размазываания, как по мне, просто идеальная. Но не дай Бог, где небудь дотронутся пальцами, будет отпечаток, и когда прорисововать карандашом и розмазывать, останется очень некрасивая пляма, которую уже нельзя убрать. Минимум контакта с пальцами - ето главное. А прочность дейсвительно очень хорошая, картон напоминает. Ладненько, буду заканчивать, может сегодня или завтра напишу тебе на мейл:)Соскучилась по нашему общению:)
