Colored Pencil Tutorial

Many times have people asked how I do my traditional colored pencil works. And now I have finally finished my second tutorial. This one tells not only using of normal colored pencils but also the watercolor pencils, because if I make a drawing with colored pencils I allways use also the watercolor pencils. I almost never use water with the watercolor pencils, I just love the stronger and more covering feeling of them.

This tutorial tells actually only about skin coloring, but the tecnique is same when I color something else.

If you are interested about my traditional art tecniques, you should also see my watercolor tutorial.

how do you colour the hair with pencil crayons?
nokecha's avatar
I used colored pencils for the whole picture and the technique used for the skin also works for the hair.

I have faber castel and it sucks -.-
that is why I prefer watercolors and digital. What brand is your pencils_
nokecha's avatar
Mostly Derwent, but also some Faber Castell watercolor pencils, at least mine are fine, but they are pretty old so maybe they arent good nowadays.
Mochizuki-Rin's avatar

I tried it out, though I didn't have the colors you recommended, so I tried the closest colors I could get.  It looks a lot nicer than how I was just using plain ol' peach for skin lol

How do you suggest blending the colors? Do you use a tool of any kind?
