I finally finished inking the latest test piece. time for some colour! I'm thinking prisma for this...
Pencils on an a4 pad of rubbish paper

OK so this is the first in a series of experiments I'm running.

I'm putting the tools to the test!

I've long since stated that Pro markers are the best for this kind of thing but I've recently made contact with professional grade colouring pencils and have to check them out!

This piece was drawn using the worst, cheapest colouring pencils I've ever seen. They were 69p from my local supermarket and we did not get on well together!

I found blending almost impossible and I had to push so hard to get any colour on the page I actually tore chunks off in places. Theirs no flesh colours so I had to mash something together that kinda works and it's almost impossible to get a sharp point on the pencil without snapping the lead so detail is tricky!!!

Advice, do Not buy cheap pencils for any reason ever. It's no wonder kids have such a hard time colouring in!!

Thanks guys!!
This is me at the top of this thing, harder to get down than up!! Love the sillouette and the symmetry of the patterns from the rope. Great effect. Works great as a profile pic!
Check out that eye! No photomanipulaion either! Love the way his whiskers pop out!!
I just saw my watch count hit 100 and I'm deeply honoured you all took the time out to look at my work!
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you!!!
I've got a couple of things I'm working on at the moment but life's been getting in the way a little!! I promise they will be up as soon as possible!!!!

Have a great day guys and thank you so much!!!!!

I've been drawing as long as I can remember, genuinely inspired by cartoons as a small child. They don't make them like they used to!
I took some time away from the pencil after I had kids but am attempting to get back into it now! Time is not on my side but I'll get as much up as possible. Promise!

I also have a Facebook page

Website currently under construction!
