I finished up my first colored pencil drawing, using the Prismacolor Verithins.
These drawings take a really long time to make. There’s a lot of detail and a lot of overlap, so it’s just a process that takes a while. The results are well worth it, and overall they’re a lot of fun to create because they change so much as I develop the pattern and add new colors.
The leads of the Verithins are rather hard, so I found myself pressing very firmly on the paper to get the color to show up, especially with the lightest pink and green. Because of that, I ended up embossing the paper so much that it’s rippled and doesn’t lay quite flat. I was concerned that I wouldn’t be able to get a good scan, but the shadows are very slight.
I’m going to do another drawing using the Prismacolor Premier colored pencils to check out the difference, but ultimately I plan to do a series of these on larger plain paper.
Suffice it to say, I’m very happy with my new colored pencils so far!
