Anyone who experienced scratching oil pastel?

Hi everyone!

I don’t often make text post but I need help: I am trying to figure out how I want to render an animation project I’m working on and although I’m not sure yet I thought about oil pastel scratching as it’s something I’ve never tried and it sorts of… feels right for the project?

But I don’t have any unfortunately so I can’t test it out myself. Can anyone experienced on the subject give me advice regarding:

- what quality/brand of oil pastel to favor?
- would scratching on regular machine paper (which I use to animate) work alright?
- Might it be very expensive? (like how long do they last if often used? As I’ll have many frames to color if I choose that technique).

Anyone willing/able to give me some pointers? That’d be of great help for deciding! Thank you in advance :D

  • Payement must be fully sent before I start working.
  • To discuss and/or request a commission, email me at marieanne.dt@gmail.com

Traditional/Illustration commissions are open too, feel free to inquire about those as well! Thank you for reading! :>

(I’ll be reblogging this post regularly in the next few days so if you don’t want it to show up on your dashboard over and over again I’ll be tagging it “smilingstone commissions” so you can block it or something, I apologize in advance “^” )

This is important: I always offer two 2 or 3 sketches to discuss/choose from before going on with colours for each commission request in order to make sure the commissioner is satisfied, prices will be lowered if anyone wishes to skip this step and trust me entirely.
This goes for everything except sketches (either digital, pencil or watercolour).

Friendly reminder that commissions are still open :>

Some old doodles trying to figure out Nickster’s dad design, he will appear at some point but not just yet.

Sorry for missing yesterday’s update, it’ll be back next week, I have trouble finding a suitable working pace while juggling with my internship and a record breaking amount of social life.
