Quiet Motion - Pencil Illustration by LopezLorenzana Quiet Motion - Pencil Illustration by LopezLorenzana
Pencil illustration made on bristol paper (no tracing). This image was inspired by this beautiful picture found here: [link]

I loved the tenderness of the posture and the movement it suggests. The richness of the tones got somewhat lost in this picture, though gives quite a good idea of the actual piece on paper.

Part of why I felt so passionate about this piece was because I just visited the awesome exhibition called "Body Worlds" where you can see actual human bodies with their bones and muscles up close. It was very inspiring and right away I chose a theme that could convey my appreciation for the human figure and it's expressive attributes.

Hello! I hope I don't bother you by asking but could you (please!) describe how you draw the skin, please? (do you just the grey tones and some ... points afterwards or is there any special technique?

Hi, thanks for your question. There is no special technique or special tools I use, is just regular shading. Except that the paper I use is Bristol smooth or vellum. Then at times I use a soft tissue, like the Kleenex brand, and softly blend the tones with it to avoid having any pencil strokes visible. This is done several times with layers upon layers until the tones look right ;)

thank you very much! can I ask you something else... while drawing do you wear gloves or use some kind of underlay to prevent your drawing from getting dirty?

No gloves, but I do place blank sheets of white paper underneath my hands and arms to prevent smudging ;)
