Final colored pencil drawing


This is the third post in the series of my progressive application of a color pencil technique. Scroll down to the first post to see how the picture started and progresses, its interesting although I am just really beginning in colored pencils. Here is Nathan's picture finished. I don't like the skin tones at all so I will do another one but thought I would share in the learning process. I will have to change computers to post the photo I took and used as a reference. He really was trying to eat that big green plastic egg!

I am completely blown away by this - it's terrific! I can't believe you aren't happy with it. It's hard to believe you've not been using pencil for years. Well done!

Thanks everyone for your kind words. I am so excited to start it again and try it without the underpainting. It will be quite the learning experience. I love the fact that I scanned the progression on this piece, even looking at the pictures myself helps me to continue to see things that I did along the way, good or bad. You might want to try it on your next piece too! And share it with all of us of course.
