National Chocolate Ice Cream Day Sketching Tutorial
Hi everyone, Mou Saha here to share a coloring tutorial using Polychromos Color Pencils in celebration of National Chocolate Ice Cream Day. Since I cannot share a real scoop or two with you digitally, I am showing you how I build the delicious scoops one subtle layer at a time!
Recommended Art Materials:
Mixed Media paper
I used my HB graphite pencil for a quick light sketch of a few scoops of chocolate ice cream in a glass cup.
I applied my first color layer with the Coral 131 Polychromos Color pencil.
My next layer was with the Burnt Ochre 187 from the same set.
The third layer was a subtle addition of textures with Venetian Red 190.
I added a fourth layer with Sanguine 188.
At this point, I started working on the dimensionality of the scoops using shading with Burnt Sienna 283.
I added the remaining touches to the chocolate ice cream scoops with Walnut Brown 177.
I colored the glass cup with Light Ultramarine 140, Bluish Turquoise 149, and Indanthrene Blue 247, leaving the glass highlights blank for the white of the paper to show through.
Finally, I colored the background with Warm Grey II 271 and Cold Grey II 231.
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and will treat yourself to some delicious chocolate ice cream to celebrate the National Chocolate Ice Cream Day on June 7th!
