Sugar High by golfiscool Sugar High by golfiscool
Well it's done. I am really happy with the outcome of this. I think it may be one of my most realistic still life drawings to date. And the fact that it's in color really makes me more confident. I tried to take my time and truely see what colors to use on this and I think it paid off. The color laydown could have been a little more smooth but I will get that right next time.

I chose to draw this last week while eating a reeses peanut butter cup that was left over from halloween. I thought it would be interesting to see how the candy wrapper reclected in a metal surface so I chose a pepsi can for the metal. I used TONS of different colors on this and most of the work will probably go overlooked to someone not experienced with colored pencils.

wow! that looks great! i know what u mean about wanting the colors to be smoother but i also kind of like it with the "rougher" look. I'm glad you didn't blend it, I think that's cheating if it's over done lol
