Update on my wood gal by kerinewton Update on my wood gal by kerinewton
SOOOOO I went with green for the background. :D

I like it. Thank you everyone for your suggestions! I'm finishing up the baroque scrolling at the bottom. Can't believe she's almost done...

Prismacolor pencil on wood for anyone interested in the medium used. I did accent with some gold and black acrylic.

Ive always wanted to put my art on wood? what wood would you recommend using? and do you sand & prime it before transferring the drawing?

Hi! I drew directly onto the wood, so not sure how to suggest priming before doing any type of transfer. But, I would recommend using a primer if you plan on painting on it. The grain in the wood can cause the paint to feather.

Fascinating, so you drew the sketch as well as the prisma colors straight on..
Have you ever considered using a light box, or projector to transfer from sketchbook to wood?
Speaking of which what type of wood did you use & do you find prisma's wax-lead glide on the surface ok?
Ive used those cheap pieces of wood from the hobby-store, but could never get it to blend just right, perhaps bc i didnt sand first.
Any suggestions?

This is a piece of pine from the craft store. ;) I did not sand or prime it first, though I honestly should have now that I think about it. I have used projectors in the past, but I feel like they hold me back a bit. I'm very picky about my linework and it's hard to get it just right when relying on a projector or transfer. The prismacolors glide beautifully on the wood. My advice is to just press down firmly and use a colorless blender pencil also.

Yup, just prismacolor pencil. The black outline is acrylic and I've added some gold detailing with acrylic but the hair and all color work is prismacolor.
