Faber Castell Colour pencils(usual), watercolor paper
This is my first attempt. I have never painted portraits with colored pencils and until recently I even couldn't represent it was possible. So... I decided to try. I'll be very thankful for tips!

Hi Vi..of course,always
I see you use Faber Castell,tell me what you say about Faber-Castell Case - the ultimate pencil case? You have the video about pencil case in my youtube channel [link]
Its a wonderful sunny day & I'm trying to finish my abstract drawing. Browsing my colored portrait &pls feel free to post critics about it.I'm not a very good artist..usually when I draw my feelings,I focus more on sceneries &landscapes that reflects my emotions.

I'm back:) Lovely video by the way, I want to download this music, don't you know how to do it?
And now about pencils. Here's the link how they look [link] They're probably for children, not for artists, I realy don't know, I found them by chance at shop.And I must say that I'm not satisfied with them, because I like to work in layers with cp, this pencils don't allow to do this( but I do this with them:)) I know that Faber Castell Polychromos are great, but they're very expensive (well for me)and I can't find them in the place I live. where's your drawings, your gallery is empty, I can't see anything there. I can give you some tips which I feel comfortable with but there are thousands of people here better then me so you can ask critics from them:)Anyway you can always ask and I'll help you with what I know:)

I love this portrait! I also use Faber Castell color pencils. I feel you did a wonderful
job with the blending of the colors. =)

Thank you so much, Evistana!:)They're good but they give pale colours. I'm dreaming to buy FC Polychromous, I've seen lots of portraits done with them, just fantastic:)I blend with cotton buds, by the way:)

You're welcome! (My real name is Eva) =)
I think I have some of the PC Polychromes. I'll
need to check that out~ I will be starting on
a colored portrait soon. I have many drawings
to work on now. I do blend the colored pencils
with a tissue because some of the colors rub off.
I don't know if you find that to be a problem.
I find that black and the blues seem to rub off
with a tissue.
