So today I wanted to try something extremely different and give you guys the opportunity to promote your own work below. I have no idea how this’ll turn out but if you’ve seen my IG story you know I asked you all: how many of you that follow me were artists yourselves, regardless of what that “art” is and it turns out that the answer is; quite a lot! You guys very well know pretty much what I do but perhaps you’re looking for more content or more creators to interact with on Instagram. Perhaps you’re looking for an artist who’s open for commissions? Perhaps YOU ARE an artist that’s open for commissions. Whatever form of art your page is, whether you draw, you paint, you write, you sing, etc. Introduce yourself and give us a description of what it’s about and what you’re about. Explore other people’s work, maybe give each other a follow. We all know that Instagram’s a social network, well let’s really network 🙂 If you all like this idea, I may consider doing more of these in the future, wishing you all the best! Much love as always #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal

g_singh_b. So here’s a continuation of a tutorial from my last upload, this time

So here’s a continuation of a tutorial from my last upload, this time focusing on applying hair. What I find interesting about this is that this was before I started using a paint pen for highlights and so I relied on negative space to give me the effect light scattering on textures. I have to say though, I do think this method gives a more natural look to highlights especially with hair and I know that sometimes using a paint pen can be quite difficult so I wanted to give some perspective on a tutorial that didn’t rely on it.

So here’s a throwback to a much simpler skin shading tutorial that I was initially going to do with my recent video. I figured it’d be a lot easier to digest the information this way focusing on one approach at a time because they really need a video all to themselves but I wanted to try something different. In any case I hope this provides a little bit more depth to the shading process. The tools that I use for my work have also been listed here below: Paper: A4 Bristol Board (Winsor & Newton) Pencils: Faber Castell 9000 Erasers: Tombow Mono Zero and Staedtler Mars White Blending: Soft Paintbrush Highlights: Uni Posca Paint Pen #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal

Ok I so I was initially going to split this into three parts. One for each technique applied but I know that’s something I’ve already done before and I wanted to give you more of a uninterrupted insight into what it looks like when an area of a drawing goes from an unfinished state to a completed section. This really took quite some time to record, put together and edit so I really appreciate the patience you guys have shown towards the piece. All feedback is greatly appreciated, thank you.

Keanu’s hair is such an important attribute to the way he looks that I’ve been trying to place what seems off about this piece so far so perhaps when I get to that it’ll start coming together. Often times though, I’ll be trying to figure out what feature is it in a drawing that makes a person seem the way they are at first glance because you can get so caught up in the details that you forget to take a step back and see the bigger picture.

A brief insight into my shading, blending and texture application process. I’ve gone over these things quite a few times before but one thing I don’t think I’ve talked about much is the use of the standard eraser as seen in the video. As you can tell from the use of the paintbrush, sometimes during blending, the tones can stack and cause a buildup of graphite that is too dense or dark for what you need. One of the main ways I deal with it is to use a clean edge of an eraser and dab the area until the layer is a uniform shade or is towards your liking, this is a more preferable approach for me as erasing the whole area and shading back over it lends itself easier to the paper tearing. Many of you have also asked what tools I use for my work so I’ll list them down below: Paper: A4 Bristol Board (Winsor & Newton) Pencils: Faber Castell 9000 Erasers: Tombow Mono Zero and Staedtler Mars White Blending: Dry Paintbrush Highlights: Uni Posca Paint Pen #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal

I really do love work in progress shots more than the final piece. There’s just something so satisfying about it seemingly coming alive off the paper that makes it so pleasing to look at. Majority of the highlights are still yet to be added. I’m a little bit more cautious this time around with applying textures and lighting too hastily, worried I might make another mistake and ruin it, really can’t afford that right now #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal

It really be like that sometimes So for context, I messed up the drawing again. That’s the fourth time I’ve tried to do this piece in specific and haven’t once managed to get past this part. Probably doesn’t look like it but the paper got super rough and damaged because I worked into it a little too much and it began to tear, which makes it almost impossible to work over or add any layers onto it so when I say this hurts me more than it hurts you, you know I’m telling the truth. #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal

This is roughly an hour to an hour and a half worth of work just working on textures. Sorry for the unsteadiness in the video too, I find it difficult keeping the paper in one orientation, I work better drawing from multiple angles lol #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal

I know it can be quite hard to see all the details of my drawings sometimes so I thought to get a true understanding of the amount of work that goes into it, it might be better to show you the scans of my drawings on the computer. If you saw my story the other day, you probably got a glimpse of this already but this should be much clearer quality. As always, if you are interested in purchasing prints of these pieces, they can be purchased on my website at gurekbal.com #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal

A brief video of texture application on the neck. I didn’t try to record much this time around mostly because I was just trying to ease back into drawing with graphite again. When it comes to the later parts of the piece, it usually becomes harder to capture the detail due to the various tones and lighting throwing off the focus of the camera but I tried to capture a little before I finish up. #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal

Been working on this self portrait pretty much non-stop for the last few days now so apologies if I’ve been a bit late replying to messages and so on. I’m noticing how easy it’s becoming to overlook the finer details when working at this speed and is probably the reason why I’ve rarely done so before but there’s something different about working on a drawing of yourself that empowers you to keep going. #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal

This stage of the drawing really makes my face look weird but it’s slowly coming alive. It’s interesting, most pieces I do start off with an intense motivation to draw and then the passion slowly drops off towards the end however in this case, I’d have to say that I’m inspired more to complete it the further I go, providing I don’t mess it up. #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal

It’s been such a long time since I posted art that I kind of feel nervous about uploading my work again. And I’m sorry about that, I just really needed some decent time away from it to feel inspired again. But it’s hard to convey that I needed to be away so long when as I’m typing this right now, it instantly transports me back as if I’ve never really left. Strange feeling. Regardless, we proceed. #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal

Going strictly off of the lighting alone, I think this drawing was one of the most fun to work on, it was also the first times I actively made an attempt to use a paint pen for highlights and since then, it’s been a integral part of my drawing process. If you also look at the drawings I had completed before this one, you’ll notice how texture became a focal point of my work from this drawing onward. I remember this piece taking somewhere between a month or two to complete in comparison to the pieces I did just before which used to take 2-3 weeks, the increase in time spent on this drawing allowed for me to work in much greater detail and really understand the importance of tone and texture especially when working with graphite. #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal

One of the hardest things about working from an old reference is that it’s usually not very detailed and if you want to make a hyperrealistic drawing, you have to imagine a lot of the details yourself, I assume there are many ways you could do this but one of the ways I went about it was to find multiple references of Muhammad Ali, each of which had different lighting and try to understand how the texture of his skin appeared in each and then try my best to implement that with the reference I was working from. Over time though, you may find this easier to do as when working with textures, you develop an understanding of how skin texture behaves in certain expressions and lighting environments. #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal

Probably one of my most detailed graphite drawings I’ve done of all time. I remember restarting this drawing twice back in December of 2017 because I messed up like I still do with application of highlights, it’s probably the only part of the drawing I don’t have control over 100%. Regardless, I’m still having to remind myself that it’s worth going through the trouble of starting over if I truly believe the final version of the drawing will be better for it. #art #arts_gate #art_supernova #artistic_unity_ #artist #pencil #illustration #drawing #sketch #artistic_nation #spotlightonartists #wip #worldofpencils2017 #instaart #artofdrawingg #drawinganatomyandart #artistic_dome #young_artists_help #art_worldly #art_spotlight #draw #duende_arts_help #artfido #art_realism_ #artistuniversity #gsinghb #sharingart #illustratenow #gurekbal
