Colored Pencil Tutorial

Be sure to check my labels on the left for more tutorials, examples, and ideas.

Step by step with Loew-Cornell pencils.

Digital stamp by Natalie for Whimsy Stamps. Simply adorable!

Started with a nice yellow, light pressure all over.

Same yellow, more pressure at center.

Create more shadows with a darker color.

A bit of orange all over, the center and petals.

Create shading in the center with darker color.

A bit of brown but I don't like it so...

I use my handy dandy eraser!

Trying the center again.

Used these two colors.

My newest favorite trick. Using a weird color like Ultramarine in the darkest corners. Only a little bitty bit.

Good enough.

Good stuff. Digis are compatible with everything, pencils, watercoloring, Copics, chalk. Love my Prismacolor pencil sharpener. I have two good eraser. The plastic one by Derwent and the Artgum is also outstanding.
