:omg: I am in love with your sketches. This sketch and the other of McKay are freaking amazing (especially the 2nd one)! How long did it take you to create this one?? For me, when I begin a non freehand drawing, I keep going till it's finished. For some reason I can't put it down and tend to it later because I'll end up losing that type of intense visual focus and drive.

It's perfect. Just perfect. And yes, he's smug. And arrogant. And bad with people. (Last two - Samantha Carter)

Wow, this is a great drawing of Rodney, I am wondering which paper/pencil brands you used, and how you didn't seem to smudge up the paper...everything I try doesn't seem to work...



thanks

:iconcrysothemis:
crysothemis Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2008
Hey, thanks! This was drawn using a mechanical pencil holding Staedtler Mars Lumograph leads. The paper is fairly heavy weight, with a vellum finish (Rising Stonehenge). I do nearly all of the HB work first, using the softer leads only to darken the darkest areas. And I really work at not touching the paper with my hand.

I do still get smudges, though. ;) When I do, nothing beats a kneaded eraser -- just press and dab rather than rubbing.

I love it! And I love McKay! Great great work! :D May I ask where you found the reference? I've been looking around for good photos, but they were hard to find.

crysothemis Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2008
Hey, sorry for the belated response, but the reference for this was a somewhat blurry screencap from the episode "Instinct." I think I made the cap myself, but you can find lots of screencaps (including some that are HD, so not as blurry as my own) at [link]
