    Unhappy Need help, Masters Copy - WIP

    Hi all, this is actually my first work I've posted on the forums, I'm currently in a community college art class, nothing too big or special, but our final is a copy of a masters drawing, and I chose (from a book) "a moorish archer" by Piazetta, I just started it a bit ago and I'm really confused on some things, it's my first time using pastels, I'm using brown paper with black and white soft pastel.

    My problem is, I dont understand how I use the black and white pastels together, when I put on the white pastel over some of the black it just ends up blending and making a bad gray color, am I supposed to do it all in black first, then spray it and go over with the white so it won't blend? Right now I'm at the point where I feel like starting over cause I messed up on a spot (might be visible in the picture) so yeah, excuse my stupidity, and thanks.

    P.S. the silver outline is from a pencil I used showing up from the flash.

    Dont apply them on layers, save the space for blacks, and for whites, or in other words, think of values, and there is no acentuated black next to a highlight. For halftones, you can do crosshatching with black and white in the right proportions. i hope i helped in any way.
    use this to train an do another one. : )
