$5 Pencils Vs. $50 Pencils (Gorillaz Noodle) by FlyingPings $5 Pencils Vs. $50 Pencils (Gorillaz Noodle) by FlyingPings
I compared Crayola colored pencils to Prismacolor colored pencils in today's video!
This was my first time using colored pencils since I was VERY young, so please don't mind my lack of knowledge haha.

Drew this for a video on my YouTube channel! 

You can view that video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIEQLZ…

ya know, the prismacolor pencils look more professional, but the crayola ones has more of the gorillaz vibe to it.( also love the shirt, was that cannon? I only saw her wear the hello kitty one in humility)

The 5$ one is like editing the contrast to a bit too high.

Both look fantastic!
As for me, I draw using whatever I feel comfortable with, which is usually a mix of various coloured pencils.

InsaneOriRefrence by Artsy-Sea   May you draw my OC Ori?? She is 16 years old, she is for an AU my friend Ender made. 
Backstory: When she was little her family would do satanic rituals and stuff, a demon always followed her. When she a little bit older she started seeing it she turned insane, her family thought she was crazy. She got taken into a insane asylum. A Year later she was brought home, the demon went inside her and that prevented her from leaving the house so she is stuck there forever. ( Sorry I had to make the story short )

Honestly? I prefer the Crayola pieice. Both are amazing, though.
This reminds me of those art pieces made in MS Paint by pros. The ones that look near-photo realistic. In the end, it's the skill of the artist, not the tools, that makes great art. Good tools make it possible to make better art, yes. But whether you give a toddler Clip Studio Paint Pro or a set of sidewalk chalk, odds are they're not going to be making a masterpiece.


"If the ax is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is needed, but skill will bring success."

lol now watch me go and buy Crayola at Walmart to draw with.

I use prismacolor pencils to color all my artwork, yeah they’re expensive, but the finished results look amazing! Also your art looks amazing and I’ve been thinking about listening to The Gorillaz but I don’t know which songs are good.

:iconflyingpings:
FlyingPings Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2018
I agree! they're definitely worth the extra money if you can afford it. ^_^ 

You should! They really start to grow on you after awhile. I'll give you a list of some songs I love from them.

my favorites from their new album are: Souk Eye, Fireflies & Tranz.

My overall favorites including the ones listed above (In no particular order) are:
Charger, Sleep powder, Feel Good inc, rhinestone eyes, dare, She's my collar, Let me out, Sarturnz barz & Plastic Beach.

That's awesome!! I use Prismacolors (and draw Gorillaz) too! What type of paper do you use? I currently use either printer paper or Pacon Real Images 9x12 sketch pads.

FlyingPings Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2018

I used some "Bee Paper" printer paper for this. It's paper that helps markers not bleed too much, though it worked well with the pencils!
