Inspiration finally found me today.
Tried a new medium -- chalk pastels.
Combined it with ink, my beloved colored pencils, white out, and white gel pen.
White gel pen does NOT like chalk pastels.

lol Thank you. :D 
The chalk pastels part was actually quite fun. XD Those are the base colors in the chalk. The shading was done with colored pencils.

Love all the colors in this! And the shading is so smooth. From the thumbnail, it looks like you did this digitally.

Really? :D Nice!!!

The base color was so easy with the chalk pastels, but shading was the hard part. I tried to coordinate the shading to fit the transition of the base colors. Took me hours!

It's so beautiful, all the colors blend perfectly. It's such a warm feeling piece. I honestly wish I was able to use colors like this lol.

Chalk pastels. Chalk pastels. XD

Really, blending was easy. It was shading that was the hard part since I had to constantly coordinate my shading colors with the base color that gradually changes.

amyY3's avatar
Digitally I could probably do it, but traditionally I use markers. Ink is hard to blend.
NasikaSakura's avatar

Yeah. And I'm not sure how expensive chalk pastels are. I only used the primary colors here.

If we lived in the same area, I'd let you borrow mine to try. XD
