Cold Hands, Warm Heart

This is me attempting to colour with coloured pencils. I only have a cheap 24 set from Michael's that I got years and years ago. It's barely used cos I just couldn't get the results that I wanted with them. This is a little better than I've ever done, applying Copic techniques to the image, but it was a LOT of work. Pencils require much more pressure than markers do to get a deep, saturated colour. There was a lot of scrubbing with the pencil to even get rid of the random white of the paper showing through. It looks okay, wasn't a complete failure, but due to the difficulty I think I'll stick with the markers from here on out!
