Really great drawing. What brand of pencils are you using? Your skin tones are super :)

The finished work looks really good. I use faber castell polychromos most of the time. I liked the colour tones in your drawings :)

I watched your gallery and I saw that you use the colors very well, you have a really good technique. If you are not satisfied with the end result then you should experiment with other brands of colored pencils and other types of support (I use paper Fabriano Artistico mainly ).

Thanks. No I'm happy with the Polychromos and the end results. I experiment quite a bit with different brands. I'm always interested in how people put together their work, I thought your work has a nice finish. Paper I probably don't experiment with as much as I should.

If you're interested ... I use Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper.
The comparison with other artists, discuss the different techniques or on different materials, it is really a very important thing. So... I thank you for these comments! :)

It was just a question "technique"... to get the eye color I used, as well as various blues and blacks, even the silver-gray to make them more brilliant.
