This is my first "serious" colour pencil work. Do I like colour pencils? sort of..Will I'll draw a lot with colour pencils in the future? No. At least not yet

The most I like about the drawing are the lips. unfortunately that was the only thing the scanner didn't pick up well :facepalm: it's more pink in real life. I tried to make it look as close as possible to the real one by changing contrasts in photoshop, but I failed...

There's a dent(?) in the nose..I have no idea what happened. I was just taking a break from a half hour and when I came back it suddenly was there:saddummy: the strange thing is, no one came near my drawing...:?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Derwent colour pencils
-Prismacolor premier black for the background
-prismacolor verithin for a little help with hair
-colourless blenders

Apperently the hair on the web reference is green and the hair on the poster I used turquoise....

I love your work! We use the same medium! Though I only use cheap pencils, since I can't afford Derwent and Prismacolor.
