Smokin' Hot by kelch12 Smokin' Hot by kelch12
I saw this picture of a girl with hot peper in her mouth. Then I thought, "That's a perfect with some smoke." Just becase I wanted to draw smoke, I went through the trouble of making this fun piece. Hope you like this "Smokin' Hot" drawing. :)

I would like to demonstrate smoke within a light background and also in a darker background. I did it. :)

Pencil: 4H, 2H, HB, 2B (mixed brands)
Paper: 11x14 Strathmore 300 Bristol Vellum
Other: kneaded eraser, brush (for hair only)
Duration: 10/05/2011 - 01/08/2012

Generally, this is a very brilliant idea, turning a red pepper into a smokable subject can truly reflect its hotness.. well done :)
also the hair can be viewed thread by thread.. its preciseness is remarkable..
the hatching is quite smooth and the smoke's shape is correct..
my main critique is on details, I think this artwork could have more of them, for example peppers should have more wrinkles.. adding baby-hairs can make the hair even more realistic.. some skin textures and adding more dots and spots on the face can also make the point..
less round shapes and more hard angled ones can decrease the unnecessary smoothness..
more contrast is recommended, some dark blacks and white glows can make it better.
finally, the idea is great and you've done a good job ;)
What do you think?

Hi Kelvin. Your works are great to me. Congratulations. It seems that you are following 5PM. Is that really works? :( (Sad)

It will only work if you put time to practice it. If you ask me, I would tell you to learn the principles and take what's useful to you and keep on practicing, reflect, and make your own adjustment as you gain more experience each time.

5PM is a good way to get you started. The rest is up to you.
