Sunrise by sidneyeileen Sunrise by sidneyeileen
Colored pencil on black paper, 9"x15"
Not sure how much time.
Photographic model used.

A tutorial based on this drawing may be found here --> [link]

Edit: I added a bit more light to the tail, so it didn't look like it was floating....

I was wondering where you can find black paper. The only kind I can seem to find is black construction paper...

Very lovely picture by the way. :) It's inspired me to try and work with colored pencils.

I buy Artagain brand black paper. It's a little heavier than normal drawing paper, but nowhere near as heavy as construction paper. If your local art store doesn't carry it, any online art supplier will. Just look up the brand "Artagain" in their paper section.

I usually use Strathmore Artagain Black. It's nothing special, just conveniently available at all the art stores in my region. I'm sure any light-toothed black paper would work just as well. :aww:
