USING FELT PENS (1)

V. Ryan 2002 - 2008

 

Outlined below are the stages involved in producing a colour rendered drawing of a craft knife. A selection of felt pen and coloured pencil techniques have been used and they are presented one stage at a time. The techniques used are relatively simple and can give quite quick results.

1. The style of drawing is decided - in this case a three dimensional style called isometric drawing is adopted. The basic outline is drawn carefully with a pencil as any mistakes can be corrected easily.

2. More detail is added such as rounding off corners and adding the finger grips to the craft knife. A fine black ink pen is then used to go over the pencil lines.

3. A slightly wide black ink pen is then used to go round the inside of the drawing (in particular, the handle of the craft knife).

 

 

 

4. A chisel tipped black felt pen is then used to fill the handle with colour quickly. This is allowed to dry and then a white pencil crayon is used to add relief or curves to the drawing.

5. The blade holder is then coloured using a brush tipped felt pen (in this case grey is a suitable colour). Notice that white space is left to give the impression of light reflecting of the metal.

6. Finally, use a different coloured felt pen to underline the drawing. In this case a gold/yellow chisel tipped felt pen has been used to make the drawing stand out.
