I'm Chess by pastelcoven I'm Chess by pastelcoven

Meet Chess


♡ short from Francesca but don't even think about calling her that or Fran. Chess only. 
♡ bisexual 
♡ if it's not high-waisted, why wear it? 
♡ hobbies: stargazing, quilting

(her hair is more of a white blonde but there was no way I was ever going to get that with pencils XD) 

This was the first thing I drew before creating this new account! I didn't colour it until I'd worked out her colours (Bomber Jacket) but obviously because it's colouring pencils it's not perfect ; u ; But my scanner is finally working so expect lots of traditional art now! <3

She's so pretty and the full body style is adorable.  (i feel that about the white blonde. not only is it unattainable by colored pencils, but my scanner would wash it out to just white ;-; )

That's true! I wouldn't even know what colours to mix, so I guess I'll just have to find a pencil that would match someday <3 I'd have to really mess with the colour balance and shadows to make it look good though, as you say!

Sometimes scanners can really kill a piece though! I'm surprised by how well this turned out because all the scanned stuff on my old account was really dark and grainy XD

true haha. it's so rare to find perfect traditional artwork. I actually thought this was digital x'D
I adore the crayon effect and how scan retained the quality *u*

This style looks so mature. I love it! It reminds me of My Scene and how much I used to like that style - or Bratz without that much sass. It just has that adult-but-fun vibe.

I also like: the eye style; that heart earring; the pose; the bagginess of the jean folds; and how the shoes fit and the shading where they bend. <3

Ohmygosh to be compared to My Scene is, like, the BIGGEST compliment ever. I bloody love My Scene and the art they had on the original boxes was soooo cute ;A; I love the aesthetic from the movies (the long necks and round faces) so thank you so much, Carissa! <3 <3
And thank you so much for commenting on the folds XD I haven't quite worked out how to do it correctly yet, but it means a lot that you noticed hehe <3

Thank you * u *
I want to improve, since I'm still not 100% sure about the eyes, but it's the first one I've done in forever, so it came out pretty okay! <3
