Peggy says, “I don’t often work on Dura-lar, but when I do, I always wonder why I don’t work on it more often. It is fun to draw on and you can achieve really rich, saturated colors quickly.”
Drafting film is not typical drawing paper, though. Because it doesn’t accept as many layers as most drawing paper, you need to plan a little bit more. But Peggy describes her drawing process so you can quickly adapt your own drawing methods to this unique and fun surface.
The tutorial includes a full supply list (including a color chart.) It also includes a line drawing, as well as a full-size reference photo. Download the tutorial, print the line drawing (and even the reference photo,) and get a fast start today.
