George's Traditional Art ToolsArt Tools
Hi my name is GeorgeXVII I am a Traditional Artist and, as you may have guessed, I love drawing! I'm here this week to 'help' you with some tips and advice about "how to choose and use tools" if your hobby is DRAWING. 
Bullet; Blue I am often asked about the tools I use to create my drawings. Do I use traditional wood-cased pencils or mechanical ones? What type of eraser do I use? It would appear that many Artists have a fascination (and a vested interest) in the tools and techniques used by other artists... and I'm no different in that respect! So, what tools do I use?
Let's Get Started

TOOLS you have to choose and use when you are a Drawing Artist
Bullet; Blue Brushes
Bullet; Blue Pencils
Bullet; Blue Progresso pencils

Salvador Dali and historical paintings.Art History
AUTORHi my name is GeorgeXVII and I'm here to present to you some information about this famous Spanish Artist.
Salvador Dalì developed visual surrealism together with Magritte. But being more talented, successful and commercial than the others, Dalì was eventually expelled from the surrealist group.
Salvador Dali
Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech was born on May 11, 1904 in the town of Figueres, in the Empordà region, close to the French border in Catalonia, Spain. His father, Salvador Dalí i Cusí, was a middle-class lawyer and notary whose strict disciplinary approach was tempered by his wife, Felipa Domenech Ferrés, who encouraged her son's artistic endeavors.
Died: 1989, January 23, Figueres, Catalonia, Spain
Dalí showed talent for drawing and painting at a very early age, as can be seen from his 'Lands

How to draw hair strands

Wed Feb 22, 2017, 7:01 AM by GeorgeXVII:icongeorgexvii:

Hello everyone , 

I've planned to make a little tutorial where I want to show you some advices/tips that will help you to draw ''realistic'' hair .
This tutorial is done because some deviants requested me to show how I draw hair and what tools I use when I start to draw my ''HairStyle Study''.
When you start drawing the most important form my point of view are the details , source of light and constrats.
Are much more factors but these 3 are very importants if we want to have a great human hair drawing. 


Untitled by GeorgeXVII
:bulletgreen: Pencils: 2B , 6B , 7B and a Mechanical 3B Pencil.
:bulletgreen: Erasers: Normal Eraser and Kneaded Eraser.
*Normal Eraser: I've used a cuter to cut it and make it thin so it can erase very thin areas that resemble hair strands.
:bulletgreen: For Blending: Fine brush and a Q-Tips.

Let's start :

When I start to draw I establish where the point of light will be:

*very important to respect the source of light and let it WHITE !

CONTRAST / Dark Areas:

Untitled by GeorgeXVII


*With a 2B pencil I will start In areas with more contrast I will work with pencil 6B and give more details with a 7B pencil :
Image by GeorgeXVII
*Don't touch the Light AREA with 6 or 7B pencil. That area will be protected because need to still white , there we are allowed to add some blend with the brush or Q-tips and create hair strand with the Mechanical Pencil. :thumbsup:

It starts to look like a strand of hair :la:
:bulletred: Now we have to blend those areas close to the ''source of light'':

:bulletyellow: Next step is to create more detailed hair strands in the Light Area:

:star: OK !

Now we have to create some detais using the eraser :

*Try to create new FINE lines with the eraser and Mechanical Pencil until you will achieve a good hair strand:

That's all folks ! :heart:

This tutorial is dedicated to all of you who send me notes or comments about ''learning do draw hair strands'' .
I'm sorry for the quality of the photos and the quality of the drawing , it's a little drawing and working on details in this one was pretty difficult :giggle: , but I hope you will get only the most important of this tutorial like tips and advices and not the quality. :)
