Four steps to “The cat” 
Let’s go back to the sketch published last Sunday. Dealing with cat hair appeared to be quite  a pain challenging, but, thank you pencil ! the result is finally acceptable.
The outline was made with the black pencil. It’s easier to mask, next, with watercolors and other pencils, than fountain pen (but, maybe a bit less funny). Don’t spend to much time here, accuracy is not so important at this step, since the main elements of the sketch (eyes and nose, in this case) are globally right aligned.
As with black&white sketches, Paper’s grey tone appeared to be very useful for drawing that damn hair, always with the pencil tool. Grey watercolor was also used on dark hair zones, and reworked with black, and white pencils to depict hair.

Four steps to “The smoking girl”
Here is another four-stages drawing of the “smoking girl” sketch, made with the Paper App on iPad.
Back to black and white. Obviously, the grey color was also used. A warm grey which is very interesting to use, because of its “behavior’ when used with the brush (tends to darken slightly) or with the pencil (it lightens).
As usual, all the tools were used, especially pencils and brush, starting with coarse shapes and volumes with pencil and brush.
  It took about 4 hours to complete the sketch (even if the background would need more care).

Four steps to “Guillaume” 
(souvenir from a quite drunk evening)
Done with the Paper App, as usual, on the iPad 1 with a the Bamboo stylus
This sketch has been done quite quickly, in about 2 hours and a half, using the black pencil rather than the fountain pen, as in my previous sketches. It appears to be faster, since I usually overlay almost all the draft with the other tools and colors.
As usual, all of the Paper tools were used, but mainly pencils and watercolors.
