Rand Al'Thor the sheep herder


lost power during Hurricane Irene.

So I picked up my colored pencils, printed reference and drew Rand Al'Thor, the boy sheep herder before he was the dragon. I wanted to capture his innocence and do some cool colors.

Rand has always been a favorite of mine.

This is all colored pencil. Specifically water color pencil.

I actually did not press very hard. With this I just layered the colors in rich reds, oranges, browns, and some gold. The reason it looks so dark is because the rest of the image is in soft colors. Only the shadow and hair are deep in color.

Also the paper I used was soft and thin so I did not have to press down. but if you are using thicker paper you could press harder. I would be careful of that because it can create grooves in the paper and stand out of your image.


I hope that answers your question :)
