Orz... I had the super duper idea to test how far can I go when combining coloured pencils with markers and still have a somewhat homogenous looking outcome. :/ I'd put that picture in the 'trial and error' corner... and I wasn't sure if I should upload it at all. ^^; Sorry for letting you wait... and see this. :XD:

At the end of last year I got myself a nice Polychromos set and was dying to try out the pencils together with markers. There are parts which I like about the picture and others that I don't, but I did learn the other thing or two in the process. Ah well, I'm glad this is finished and I want to move onto other pictures.
You know that I usually don't say this, but I'm only 85% happy with the scan... Why? ...because I used red again. Yes, scanners just can't handle red. =_=

Oh, and maybe a few words to the picture itself. My first idea was to draw some hydrangea, then I thought about how I didn't want to draw those fluffy light blue flowers and wanted to do something more black and white-ish, aaaaand in the end it became an unhealthy looking vampire. XD~

Edit: Wow, I didn't think people would like the picture this much... so I decided to share a few photos taken during the drawing of this piece. There aren't many, but maybe they are interesting nonetheless: [link] ;)

Edit 2:
OMG, a DD?! Wow, thank you so much! It's such an uplifting feeling, considering I was about to doubt my art again and was unsure about it for the last few months. ^^; Many, many thanks!

Edit 3:
I really want to thank everyone who gave this picture a favourite, who commented on it, or did both. You guys made my day! Thank you very much. ^^
