I used to use colored pencils exclusively when I was a kid, but for whatever reason, I stopped? I can’t really remember what caused me to drop them, and I’m pretty sure I still have my stash of pencils at my parents’ house … hundreds of pencils. I should probably look for them, yes? I mean, as if I need to add to my already large collection that I already have that I barely use. Come to think of it, I don’t even remember buying most of them.
Anyway, in my latest Sketchbox, I was gifted a whole mess of quality colored pencils, so I was like, meh, what the hell?
And thus, this little sketch was born:
I’m working on figuring out my style a bit more, here, and I actually really enjoyed using Meltz, this colored pencil blending liquid that kind of gives this watercolor look that I obviously love so much. Now, this is just in my sketchbook, so I was literally just playing with this, but I may try to make something similar in the near future on some Aquaboard or something.
