The article is How to Shade with Colored Pencils and despite my Internet being briefly down, it came back so I could finally post it and this post. :)
More later, and I'll put in an LJ-cut if I post more art. :)
And I just finished another one, How to Draw a Pansy in Colored Pencil -- not one of my most elaborate floral drawings, but cool anyway since it is something a beginner could copy and it again demonstrates mixing colors with colored pencils, shading over colors, doing a value drawing first to get it right. Oh heck I should post the value drawing too:
And this scan also caught the three little patches of the three shades of Col-Erase green that I decided which one to use to outline the leaf during the process. A little more candid than the one in the article. lol
And here's the pretty color one, second of today's color artworks. Three articles (middle one is on picking a cat for personality) and two artworks, er, three or four really since I did a value drawing on the last one too.
