emjay's color instinct

This year I hope to complete 30 days of the aparecium challenge, choosing the prompt I feel most inspired by that day from the four individual challenges and still keeping with the appropriate day. As one of my favorite mediums is colored pencil, I plan to complete each of the challenge prompts in colored pencil.

Aparecium Challenge
  1. Pygmy Puff
  2. Freckles
  3. Spectrespecs
  4. Radish
  5. Nargles

Day 1 - Pygmy Puff

Are pygmy puffs really this ugly or just mine? Lol. Ugly cute maybe. I don't think I ever really noticed them in the films, but this is modeled after Ginny's pet pygmy puff which apparently was in one of the movies.

SPOILER!!: Day 1 Pygmy Puff

I find the one in the film to be super ugly and it appeared for all of 2 seconds on the Hogwarts Express while Luna was handing out Quibblers the plushies at WWoHP are NOTHING like the little shriveled grumpy old man face ... but this is AMAZING! I love all of the individual hairs and I can literally feel that fluffy texture through my eyes

also that itty bitty shadow underneath

Pygmy puffs are ugly, but this one is absolutely adorable!! I'm in awe of how well you captured it's puffness with the hairs! And his little wrinkles? asdgfdsfk I LOVE. He also looks like he has just the hint of a smile too. It's just all SO good!

I feel like that pygmy puff is staring into my soul (also I looked at this on my phone right when I woke up and really related to the wild-haired little puff ball). I love it, the detailing is so good.

as soon as I saw this I remembered seeing lil arnold riding on ginny's shoulder on the train. I especially love how you did the fluff... fur??? puff????? with the colours and the hairs and the soft fluffness ugh beaut. can't wait to see what else you post :3

The detail and texture in the pygmy puff is freaking amazing. The colors are really stunning and I love that there are like... underlying purples under all the pink. Also the shadow under the pygmy puff ♥ YOU ARE AMAZING and it's so fluffy I could DIE

Yeah, I went looking for a reference picture, and that's the one I found. I don't remember seeing it. But thank you! I did make some effort trying to get a good and fluffy fur texture.

N'aww thanks. You know, that could be why... I bet his owner tells him plenty and no one would be the wiser.

Thanks, Suzy! I noticed that the plushies looked a little different when I was searching up a reference, but I decided to go with more movie accurate. Glad you like ^^

Arnold! That was his name! Yes, that was the picture I found from the film. Thank you, I spent considerable time on that fur so I'm glad you thought it turned out well ^^

Thank you so much! And thank you for noticing the purple tones. I really like to work with undertones and blending colors to give them depth.

He kind of reminds me of an ugly little dog that is still just so cute. Thanks, I'm glad you like him ^^

Day 2 - Freckles

I'm struggling a little with the paper I decided to use from a sketchbook I made with the drawing paper at school. It's clearly not the best quality and I can definitely tell when I'm trying to blend my colors. But maybe it's good practice to work with a mediocre paper. Idk.

Anyway, I wanted to do a close-up freckle study. I don't love it, though I do like how the eye turned out. Too bad my prompt wasn't closed eye. And alas, I'm a day behind.

SPOILER!!: Freckles

no offence but your skills (and patience) with coloured pencils blow me away every time. or, well, your skills in general. I just really get a lot of joy out of seeing what you can create, especially in a medium which may as well be witchcraft as far as I'm concerned.

that eye really is spectacular but I also think the actual freckles are too, especially on the right side, around and below the eye *-* the colours and blending and pencil strokes in this are just... the deeeetail

These are turning out SO GOOD, MJ. I think that colored pencil is one of those underappreciated mediums. I can't do squat with them, but people who know how to use them for shading and understand color theory can make MAGIC. The softness of the pygmy puff and that skin texture around the eye is magic.

I just love drawing eyes, especially in colored pencil. I really like how the eyelashes turned out too. This one took me close to 2 hours with all the layering and color blending - and honestly if it was better paper, I know that all would be smoother. But this is probably why I'm so behind right now. I'm lucky if I get 15 minutes a day during the week to spend on these, so I'm trying to catch up on the weekend.

that eye really is spectacular but I also think the actual freckles are too, especially on the right side, around and below the eye *-* the colours and blending and pencil strokes in this are just... the deeeetail
You are really too kind ;; Thank you, I love colored pencils so much, especially the blending of colors. They really do take so much patience though and now I'm getting frustrated with how far behind I am lol. I'm glad you liked it though and thank you for the compliments ^^

Aww, thank you! I really like to use undertones in my work... though I don't think this blended out as well as I wanted (I still blame the paper lol). But I'm glad you liked it ^^

Thanks, Ern! I'm glad you like them. Yeah I really love colored pencils, they're pretty much my favorite... but they also take a lot of practice and patience being such a slow medium, so maybe they are a little more underappreciated.

Thanks so much! Portraiture is one of my favorite things to draw. I'm glad you liked it.

Day 3 - Spectrespecs

Not sure how I feel about this one other than it took me way longer than I wanted. I did start on this on the third day of October... but finding time during the week is hard.
