Huggins meets Shattuck on velvety paper

I finished the previous shown tile today. It was really really relaxing to shade it. I ignored my lightsource for the shading because its much easier to shade "Huggins" that way. I loved to do this whole tile and I love the result.

Used material:
- Staedtler pigment liner 0.1
- graphite pencil 2B (for the string)
- graphite pencil 3B (for shading)

on a self-cut Tile made of Fabriano Tiepolo paper (100% cotton)

PS.: That paper is great! I'm wondering why I didn't tried that paper before. It's smooth but feels a little bit velvety. It feels realy "premium" but it wasn't not more expensive then the other Papers I used before. (I bought this one as a big sheet of 50 cm x 70 cm and cutted the tiles myself). Next thing I will try is colored pencil on this paper or watercolor. maybe both... First I splash around with watercolor and while that dries I do something with my colored pencils!

I love this string

I finished reading the primer book but without doing every exercixe. I started one more tile with the istructions from the book but i didn't liked the flow... it was so restricted. I had to use this string and that tangle and *argh*
But nevertheless i liked reading that book and I will use some things I read! One tangle I rediscovered was "shattuck". This is a really easy one but I like it. Maybe I can use it as a border in my next tile. But I used it in this tile too. The other tangles are called Huggins, Zinger and Fedr.

Now I have to shade this tile, but I like it without shading too (and thats not too common for me xD).

PS.: maybe I do some more tiles with this string and combine them to one collage/mosaic, I think that could look good.
