    The oil painting is great, but the caran dache portrait is SUPERB!

    ...maybe it´s a stupid question, but, what is CARAN DACHE?

    thanks robolus! caran dache is actually a brand, and there are different types. the ones i used are watersoluble crayons. they are actually a lot like regular crayons, they are waxy. i think they are called neocolor II.

    mindcandy and behemot: thanks guys, i will obey!

    deth: for this one i used illustration board and then gessoed it. for the self portrait one i actually ripped off the back of a newsprint pad and then gessoed that. today im going to use an old canvas board with gesso...running out of money ;___;. so basically anything that you can gesso would work, heh.

    oh, why are you thanking us on your first post, do you know we will love it even before you post it?

    That's cause you haven't seen the one I had 2 years ago...
    what does this mean >^..^< ?


    Anyway Daarken, how long does a caran dache portrait take you? I am curious, and I'd like to give'em a try.

    these are both really nice especially the portrait.. Nice ambience/colour arrangement. I really like the oil feel you've managed to achieve/.. do use solvents with your caran dache crayons.. cause they look more like oils than your oils to me! Have you found they work very well with any other mediums?
    keep posting!

    Great work, especially the Caran D'ache portrait.

    I was wondering if you could tell me something about the way you use the Caran D'ache. How do you apply the water to your picture?

    When I saw this thread I pulled out my (warning long name coming up)

    "Caran D'ache Lithographic Crayons in Pencil Form"

    Mine are Supracolor II Soft, and to tell you the truth, every time I use them I feel like I should just stop drawing and painting altogether. Because, frankly the stuff I draw with these crayons looks as if it were made in kindergarten.

    So please if you could give me some basic pointers on how to use them, it would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks,
    Kortez

    kortez: the way i apply water is first i put down the layers of color i want, then i go back into it with either a wet fan brush or a wet flat brush. its like using lift off in other media. but anyway, first you start off the portrait like you are using pastels, and build up different layers. first i start off with red for the lighting parts of the face, then orange, then yellow. once i have those three layers down i put water ontop of that. then i go back ontop with different colors. hmmm, i will try and do a step by step for my next one. hope that helps some.

    rohan: thanks! i actually use acrylics and gouache with the caran dache. the only solvent i use is water.

    r_m: i think this one took about 2 - 3 hours.
